Ajax form validation in php

Ajax Form Validation Example TemplateBench

Today I will teach you how to create validation for the ajax request with the help of jQuery. As we all know, Jquery becomes more powerful and useful nowadays. Many developer face issue of server-side validation when they submit a post with the help of ajax request.
So, Today I will give a simple but useful example of the bootstrap form with ajax validation in php.
Here, I will create a contact form in the HTML, I will use Bootstrap for the styling and jquery for ajax request.

Working: When we will submit the form it will fire the ajax request and after validation, it will display the message as shown in the image Below.

We need two files for that, File names are given below.

 1. index.php

2. postRequest.php

In index.php, we will create the layout for the form for layout style we are using bootstrap.We will also write some jquery code to fire the ajax request. We will send the request to the postRequest.php, in this file we will check validation and return the msg to index.php in the JSON format

<script type="text/javascript">

  $(document).ready(function() {



        var name = $("#name").val();

        var email = $("#email").val();

        var subject = $("#subject").val();

        var message = $("#message").val();


            type: "POST",

            url: "/postRequest.php",

            dataType: "json",

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

            success : function(data){

                if (data.code == "200"){

                    alert("Success: " +data.msg);

                } else {
                	var m = data.msg;
                    $.each(m, function( index, value ) {
					  $(".display-error ul").append("<li>"+ value +"</li>");











$errorMSG = array();

/* NAME */

if (empty($_POST["name"])) {

    $errorMSG[] = "Name is required";

} else {

    $name = $_POST["name"];


/* EMAIL */

if (empty($_POST["email"])) {

    $errorMSG[] = "Email is required";

} else if(!filter_var($_POST["email"], FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)) {

    $errorMSG[] = "Invalid email format";

}else {

    $email = $_POST["email"];



if (empty($_POST["subject"])) {

    $errorMSG[] = "Subject is required";

} else {

    $subject = $_POST["subject"];



if (empty($_POST["message"])) {

    $errorMSG[] = "Message is required";

} else {

    $message = $_POST["message"];



	// Do Your stuff
	$msg = "Form submit successfully";

	echo json_encode(['code'=>200, 'msg'=>$msg]);



echo json_encode(['code'=>404, 'msg'=>$errorMSG]);


Just copy these code and create the files and your code will be ready for execute.
