Validate the slider using FormValidator

The Slider component can be validated using our FormValidator. The following steps walk-through slider validation.

  • Render slider component inside a form.
  • Bind changed event in the slider component to validate the slider value when the value changes.
  • Initialize and render FormValidator for the form using form ID.
// Initialize Form validation
let formObj: FormValidator;
formObj = new FormValidator("#formId", options);
  • Set the required property in the FormValidator rules collection. Here, the min property of slider that sets the minimum value in the slider component is set, and it has hidden input as enable validateHidden property is set to true.
// Slider element
<div id="default" name="slider"></div>

// sets required property in the FormValidator rules collection
let options: FormValidatorModel = {
  rules: {
    'default': {
      validateHidden: true,
      min: [6, "You must select value greater than 5"]
    }
  }
};

Form validation is done either by ID or name value of the slider component. Above ID of the slider is used to validate it.

Using slider name: Render slider with name attribute. In the following code snippet, name attribute value of ?slider? is used for form validation.

// Slider element
<div id="default" name="slider"></div>

// sets required property in the FormValidator rules collection
let options: FormValidatorModel = {
  rules: {
    'slider': {
      validateHidden: true,
      min: [6, "You must select value greater than 5"]
    }
  }
};
  • Validate the form using validate method, and it validates the slider value with the defined rules collection and returns the result. If user selects the value less than the minimum value, form will not submit.
formObj.validate();
  • Slider validation can be done during value changes in slider. Refer to the following code snippet.
// change event handler for slider
function onChanged(args: any) {
  formObj.validate();
}

The FormValidator has following default validation rules, which are used to validate the Slider component.

Rules Description Example
max Slider component must have value less than or equal to max number if max: 3, 3 is valid and 4 is invalid
min Slider component must have value greater than or equal to min number if min: 4, 5 is valid and 2 is invalid
regex Slider component must have valid value in regex format if regex: '/4/, 4 is valid and 1 is invalid
range Slider component must have value between range number if range: [4,5], 4 is valid and 6 is invalid
