FormValidator

The easiest, most clean Android form validation.



A declarative Form Validation for Android, simple, clean, and customizable.

Every time you create a form, you need to declare fields and write code for for validating each field in the form, and this results in many if else and a lot of boilerplate. For these reasons FormValidator is here, just declare your fields in XML and its validation and all things will be done for you!

Table of contents

Usage

<com.sha.formvalidator.Form >
    <com.sha.formvalidator.widget.FormEditText 
     app:validationType="email"
     />
    
    <com.sha.formvalidator.widget.FormCheckBox 
     app:checkBoxValidation="checked"
     />
    
    <com.sha.formvalidator.widget.FormToggleButton 
     app:toggleButtonValidation="on"
     />
    
    <com.sha.formvalidator.widget.FormSwitch 
     app:switchValidation="on"
     />
</com.sha.formvalidator.Form>

To trigger validation:

val isFormValid = findViewById<Form>(R.id.form).validate()

In case you don't need Form, you can use FormEditText just like any regular field and you can trigger validation using:

val isValid = emailFormEditText.validate()

Note

You can nest the fields inside Form layout layout in any levels you need:

<com.sha.formvalidator.Form>
  
    <LinearLayout>
         <RelativeLayout>
                 <com.sha.formvalidator.widget.FormEditText 
                 app:validationType="email"
                  />
          </RelativeLayout>
    </LinearLayout>
</com.sha.formvalidator.Form>
