Magento 2 Tutorial How To Add Custom Validation To Checkout

Hello everyone, today we will show you another great Magento 2 article on how to add custom validation to checkout.

Adding custom validation to the checkout page is very helpful in many situations. If a customer hasn’t selected input for a required field on the checkout page, the validation event will be triggered before they click on Place Order. 

Thus, this feature can prevent customers from missing any information field in the checkout.

For example, if you only offer free shipping in some specific city, you need to add a place field and validate its input to validate the customer living in that city and can get freeship.

The good news is that you can enable that feature with the help of your coding knowledge. So below are the steps and codes you need to follow to add Magento 2 custom validation to the checkout.

How To Add Magento 2 Custom Validation In Checkout

To add Magento 2 custom validation to the checkout, you need to follow 4 steps:

Step 1: Create a new js file

First, you need to create a new js file for adding a custom validation rule. 

Let’s create a file with the name bsscommerceValidationRule.js.

The file path will be app/code/<Vendor-name>/<Module-name>/view/frontend/web/js/bsscommerceValidationRule.js.

Then add the below code to the file:

define([
    'jquery',
    'jquery/ui',
    'jquery/validate',
    'mage/translate'
    ], function($){
        'use strict';
        return function() {
            $.validator.addMethod(
                "bsscommercevalidationrule",
                function(value, element) {
                    //Perform your operation here and return the result true/false.
                    return true/false;
                },
                $.mage.__("Your validation message.")
            );
    }
});

Step 2: Register a new js file

Next, you need to register the newly created js. 

Create a filerequirejs-config.js in app/code/<VendorName>/<ModuleName>/view/frontend/requirejs-config.js.

Then add the below code inside the filerequirejs-config.js.

var config = {
   map: {
       "*": {
           bsscommerceMethod: "<VendorName_ModuleName>/js/bsscommerceValidationRule"
       }
   }
};

After that, add the below code to your phtml file.

<script type="text/x-magento-init">
   {
       "*": {
           "bsscommerceMethod": {}
       }
   }
</script>

You can pass arguments to js file inside x-magento-init, too.

<script type="text/x-magento-init">
   {
       "*": {
           "bsscommerceMethod": {
               "param": "paramvalue"
           }
       }
   }
</script>

You can also access these params inside bsscommerceValidationRule.js file using the methods given below.

define([
   'jquery',
   'jquery/ui',
   'jquery/validate',
   'mage/translate'
], function($){
   'use strict';
   return function(param) {
       console.log(param);
       $.validator.addMethod(
           "bsscommercevalidationrule",
           function(value, element) {
               //Perform your operation here and return the result true/false.
               return true/false;
           },
           $.mage.__("Your validation message.")
       );
   }
});

Step 3: Apply the rule to the checkout fields

You have successfully added the new custom method in jquery validation. 

Now let’s use this rule in the checkout form.

You need to add a new method in data-validate attribute for the specific checkout field.

Here bsscommercevalidationrule is the name of our newly created validation rule.

data-validate="{required:true, bsscommercevalidationrule:true}"

Step 4: Clear cache and check the result

Run these commands and refresh the page.

php bin/magento cache:flush
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

Finally, you can check your validation on the checkout page.
