Validating form input with Java Script is easy to do and can save a lot of unnecessary calls to the server.
It can prevent people from leaving fields blank, from entering too little or too much or from using invalid characters.

If they are empty we check each and set a specific error for each. See the Pen form validation 1 by Raymond Camden (@cfjedimaster) on Code Pen.
While this cookbook entry focused on doing form validation “by hand”, there are, of course, some great Vue libraries that will handle a lot of this for you.
Switching to a prepackage library may impact the final size of your application, but the benefits could be tremendous.The value of a text input box (or a textarea or password input) is available using the syntax that tells you which option has been selected.
