PHP Codeigniter 3 - JQuery Ajax Form Validation Example


Hi Guys,

Today we will learn how to add ajax form validation in codeigniter using javascript. we will create contact us form and form submit using ajax in codeigniter 3 app. we will use validation library of codeigniter and print error messages using ajax.

We will implement server-side validation rules in codeigniter application on form submission using ajax.

It is very simple to use ajax validation with codeigniter. Here i explain every thing step by step for implement ajax validation. So you can see following steps and check how it works.

Step 1: Create Routes

In first step, we need to add routes to handle ajax request and display the form.

application/config/routes.php

<?php


defined('BASEPATH') OR exit('No direct script access allowed');


$route['default_controller'] = 'welcome';

$route['404_override'] = '';

$route['translate_uri_dashes'] = FALSE;


$route['ajax-form-validation'] = "AjaxFormValidation";

$route['ajax-form-validation/post']['post'] = "AjaxFormValidation/validationForm";

Step 2: Create Controller Class

In second step, we will create a controller "AjaxFormValidation.php" and write code of get method and post method.

application/controllers/AjaxFormValidation.php

<?php

defined('BASEPATH') OR exit('No direct script access allowed');


class AjaxFormValidation extends CI_Controller {


/**

* Get All Data from this method.

*

* @return Response

*/

public function __construct() {

parent::__construct();


$this->load->library('form_validation');

$this->load->library('session');

}


/**

* Create from display on this method.

*

* @return Response

*/

public function index()

{

$this->load->view('ajax_form_validation');

}


/**

* Validate and store the form data.

*

* @return Response

*/

public function validationForm()

{

$this->form_validation->set_rules('name', 'Name', 'required');

$this->form_validation->set_rules('email', 'Email', 'required|valid_email');

$this->form_validation->set_rules('message', 'Message', 'required');


if ($this->form_validation->run() == FALSE){

$errors = validation_errors();

echo json_encode(['error'=>$errors]);

}else{

echo json_encode(['success'=>'Form submitted successfully.']);

}

}

}

Step 3: Add View File

In last step. we need to create ajax_form_validation.php file for view. In this file we will write code for create form and jquery ajax code.

application/views/ajax_form_validation.php

</div>

</form>

</div>

</div>

</div>

</body>


<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {

$(".btn-submit").click(function(e){

e.preventDefault();

var name = $("input[name='name']").val();

var email = $("input[name='email']").val();

var message = $("textarea[name='message']").val();

$.ajax({

url: $(this).closest('form').attr('action'),

type:$(this).closest('form').attr('method'),

dataType: "json",

data: {name:name, email:email, message:message},

success: function(data) {

if($.isEmptyObject(data.error)){

$(".alert-danger").css('display','none');

alert(data.success);

}else{

$(".alert-danger").css('display','block');

$(".alert-danger").html(data.error);

}

}
