Magento 2 how to validate customer registration form on keyup event

Magento 2 how to validate customer registration form on keyup event

I am working on a project where I need to validate customer registration form as customer types. I want to use the event `keyup` for inputs. I want to change the default messages also. Right now I am doing validation like below

        $("#firstname").after('<div for="firstname" generated="true" class="mage-error" id="firstname-error">Please enter your firstname</div>');

Not a good way of doing that I think. But I will need to do this for all fields.Then I was looking at this file vendor\magento\magento2-base\lib\web\mage\validation.js at around line no 1735 I saw below code

$.widget('mage.validation', {
        options: {
            meta: 'validate',
            onfocusout: false,
            onkeyup: false,
            onclick: false,
            ignoreTitle: true,
            errorClass: 'mage-error',
            errorElement: 'div',

Seeing this I thought maybe there is a better way to do this. So if there is any simple way please let me know.

Re: Magento 2 how to validate customer registration form on keyup event

After some digging, I came up with this solution. For the solution, all you need to do is add new js using requirejs-config.js. But I created a new module. Module files are as below.








<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi=""
    <module name="Vky_Core" setup_version="0.0.1"/>



var config = {
    map: {
        '*': {
            vky_customjs:      'Vky_Core/js/vky_custom'




], function($) {
    "use strict";
    console.log('vky_custom.js is loaded!!');
        //creating jquery widget
        $.widget('vky_custom.js', {
            _create: function() {

             * Event binding, will monitor change, keyup and paste events.
             * @private
            _bind: function () {
                this._on(this.element, {
                    'change': this.validateField,
                    'keyup': this.validateField,
                    'paste': this.validateField,
                    'click': this.validateField,
                    'focusout': this.validateField,
                    'focusin': this.validateField,

            validateField: function () {


    return $.vky_custom.js;



Now, wherever your register.phtml file is open it. Add few things as below. At the end of the file add this


<script type="text/x-magento-init">
    { ".v-validate": { "Vky_Core/js/vky_custom": {} } }


And then, for example, you want to validate email. Find input tag for email and add class v-validate. Like this


<input type="email" name="email" autocomplete="email" id="email_address" value="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr($block->getFormData()->getEmail()) ?>" title="<?= $block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('Email')) ?>" class="input-text v-validate" data-validate="{required:true, 'validate-email':true}">


So any input with class v-validate will be validated on events like keyup, change, click, focusout, etc. I added a class to all input tags.

For firstname and lastname in register.phtml above this line var dataForm = $('#form-validate'); I added


That's all I did to solve my problem. And It works. That's why posting my answer. May be this can help someone.
