Form Validation Custom Messages (different fields with same name)


aND04 posted 10 months ago

Hey, I'm trying to create custom messages for errors found in form input validation.

The issue I'm having is I can't seem to find a way to create separate messages for inputs with the same name, but in different pages of the application

Suppose I have two pages with two different forms both with an input named "description". Is there a way to specify two different custom messages in validation.php for these inputs, so I can use the proper message for each form?

Thanks in advance.

How about using 2 different FormRequests and specifying the messages() function?

Or if you're using a single FormRequest you could maybe dynamically set the messages return array by checking a form id hidden input field
