About

react-material-ui-form is a React wrapper for Material-UI form components. Simply replace the <form> element with <MaterialUIForm> to get out-of-the-box state and validation support as-is. There's no need to use any other components, alter your form's nesting structure, or write onChange handlers.

Validation is done with validator.js but you can extend/customize validation messages, validators, and use your own validation logic too. Steppers, dynamic array fields and custom components are also supported.

use and requirements

  • requires React 16.3.0 or newer
  • supports official and unofficial Material-UI fields (other input elements are rendered without state/validation support)
  • every input field must have value and name props
  • every input field should NOT have onChange and onBlur props (unless you need custom field-specific logic)
  • add a data-validators prop to any input field (or FormControl / FormControlLabel) to specify validation rules

extra validators

react-material-ui-form extends validator.js validators with the following validators:

  • isAlias /^[a-zA-Z0-9-_\.]*$/i
  • isDate
  • isNumber /^([,.\d]+)$/
  • isRequired value.length !== 0
  • isSerial /^([-\s\da-zA-Z]+)$/
  • isSize value >= min && value <= max
  • isTime
  • isLength(min,max) [{ isLength: { min: 2, max: 50 } }]

Supported field components

  • TextField
  • TextField { select }
  • TextField { multiline, textarea }
  • Checkbox
  • RadioGroup
  • Radio
  • FormControlLabel (control prop)
  • FormLabel
  • InputLabel

Note

Currently this package will support only till Material-UI v3

  3. $ npm install && npm run dev

Props

Form props (optional):

Prop Description Default
[class] [string] Sets className attribute to the form
[id] [string] Sets id attribute to the form
[name] [string] Sets name attribute to the form
[action] [string] Sets action attribute to the form
activeStep [number] Use together with onFieldValidation for better Stepper support
autoComplete [string] Sets form autoComplete prop. Accepts one of ["on", "off"] "off"
disableSubmitButtonOnError [boolean] Disables submit button if any errors exist true
onFieldValidation [func] Returns @field and @errorSteps (if activeStep prop is provided) on field validation
onSubmit [func] Returns @values and @pristineValues on form submission
onValuesChange [func] Returns @values and @pristineValues on field value change
validation [object] Object specifing validation config options (prefixed below with ↳)
messageMap [object] A key-value list where the key is the validator name and the value is the error message. Is exposed as a react-material-ui-form export parameter object
messageKeyPrefix [string] Optional prefix to apply to all messageMap keys. If specified, field validator names will automatically be appended the prefix ""
requiredValidatorName [boolean, string] Specifies the validator name and matching messegeMap key for required fields. To disable and rely on the native required field prop, set to false "isRequired"
validate [func] Overrides the internal validate method. Receives the following parameters: @fieldValue, @fieldValidators, and @...rest (where @...rest is the validation prop object) func
validators [object] Defaults to an extended validator.js object. Is exposed as a react-material-ui-form export parameter object
validateInputOnBlur [boolean] Makes text input validations happen on blur instead of on change false
validations [object] Validations to pass to the form (i.e. from the server). Should be an object with keys representing field name props and values as arrays of field error messages. The first error message will be displayed per field

Field props:

Prop Description Required
value [any] The value of the field. If empty set an empty string Yes
name [string] The name of the field Yes
data-validators [string, array[object]] Validators to apply to the field. Multiple validator names can be specified with a comma-delimited string
onBlur [func] A custom handler that will be called after the field's onBlur event. Provides @value/checked, @field and @event parameters
onChange [func] A custom handler that will be called after the field's onChange event. Provides @value/checked, @field and @event parameters

Other props:

Prop Value Description
deletefieldrow [string] Field name prop up to and including the row index (i.e. rooms[2]) Add to button components that use onClick to remove any array field rows

Material-UI form production build classnames conflict issues

To avoid default material-ui production build classnames conflict issues include your entire form inside Example: Nested fields

Examples

Nested fields:

import MaterialUIForm from 'react-material-ui-form'
import JssProvider from 'react-jss/lib/JssProvider';
 
class MyForm extends React.Component {
  submit = (values, pristineValues) => {
    // get all values and pristineValues on form submission
  }
 
  customInputHandler = (value, { name }, event) => {
    // the form will update the field as usual, and then call this handler
    // if you want to have complete control of the field, change the "value" prop to "defaultValue"
  }
 
  customToggleHandler = (checked, { name, value }, event) => {
    // the form will update the field as usual, and then call this handler
    // if you want to have complete control of the field, change the "value" prop to "defaultValue"
  }
 
  render() {
    return (
      <JssProvider>
        <MaterialUIForm onSubmit={this.submit}>
          <TextField label="Name" type="text" name="name" value="" data-validators="isRequired,isAlpha" onChange={this.customInputHandler} />
          <fieldset>
            <FormControl>
                {/* form label is required here to perform default validations */}
                <FormLabel component="legend">I love React material UI form</FormLabel>
                <FormGroup value=''>
                  <FormControlLabel control={<Checkbox value='yes' />}
                    label='I love React material UI form'/>
                </FormGroup>
              </FormControl>
 
            <FormControl required>
              <InputLabel>Age</InputLabel>
              <Select value="" name="age">
                <MenuItem value=""><em>Please select your age ...</em></MenuItem>
                <MenuItem value={10}>Teens</MenuItem>
                <MenuItem value={20}>Twenties</MenuItem>
                <MenuItem value={30}>Thirties</MenuItem>
                <MenuItem value="40+">Fourties +</MenuItem>
              </Select>
              <FormHelperText>Some important helper text</FormHelperText>
            </FormControl> 
          </fieldset>
          
          <FormControl>
            <FormLabel component="legend">Gender</FormLabel>
            <RadioGroup aria-label="Gender" name="gender"  value="male">
              <FormControlLabel value="female" control={<Radio />} label="Female" />
              <FormControlLabel value="male" control={<Radio />} label="Male" /> 
            </RadioGroup>
          </FormControl>
          
          <Button variant="raised" type="reset">Reset</Button>
          <Button variant="raised" type="submit">Submit</Button>
        </MaterialUIForm>
      </JssProvider>
    )
  }
}

Custom validators:

import Form, { messageMap, validators } from 'react-material-ui-form/dist/validation/index';
 
 
validators.isBorat = value => value === 'borat'
const customMessageMap = Object.assign(messageMap, {
  isBorat: 'NAAAAAT! You can only write "borat" lol',
})
 
class MyForm extends React.Component {
  submit = (values, pristineValues) => {
    // get all values and pristineValues on form submission
  }
 
  render() {
    return (
      <MaterialUIForm onSubmit={this.submit} validation={{ messageMap: customMessageMap, validators, }}>
        <TextField label="Write anything..." type="text" name="trickster" value="" helperText="this is not a trick" data-validators="isBorat" />
 
        <Button variant="raised" type="submit">Submit</Button>
      </MaterialUIForm>
    )
  }
}

class MyForm extends React.Component {
  submit = (values, pristineValues) => {
    // get all values and pristineValues on form submission
  }
render() {
  return (
    <MaterialUIForm onSubmit={this.submit} validation={{ messageMap: customFormMsg}}>
      <TextField label="Name" type="text" name="FirstName" value="Name" data-validators="isLength" />
      <TextField label="Email" type="text" name="Email" value="abc@xyz.com" data-validators="isRequired,isEmail" />
      <Button variant="raised" type="submit">Submit</Button>
    </MaterialUIForm>
    )
  }
}
 

Custom validation logic:

import MaterialUIForm from 'react-material-ui-form'
 
 
function validate(value, fieldValidators, options) {
  const fieldValidations = []
  fieldValidators.forEach((validator) => {
    const validation = {
      code: String(validator),
      message: 'its invalid so maybe try harder...',
    }
    if (_.has(options, 'genericMessage')) {
      validation.message = options.genericMessage
    }
    fieldValidations.push(validation)
  })
  return fieldValidations
}
 
const validationOptions = {
  genericMessage: 'yeah... *tisk*',
}
 
class MyForm extends React.Component {
  submit = (values, pristineValues) => {
    // get all values and pristineValues on form submission
  }
 
  render() {
    return (
      <MaterialUIForm onSubmit={this.submit} validation={{ requiredValidatorName: false, validate, ...validationOptions, }}>
        <TextField label="Whatever you write isn't gonna be good enough" type="text" name="test" value="" data-validators="whatever - our custom validator will ignore this" required />
 
        <Button variant="raised" type="submit">Submit</Button>
      </MaterialUIForm>
    )
  }
}

Server validations:

import MaterialUIForm from 'react-material-ui-form'
 
 
const mockServerValidations = {
  name: [{ code: 'isInvalid', message: 'such invalid...' }],

    }, 1500)
 
    setTimeout(() => {
      validations = {
        name: [{ message: 'so still haven\'t watched Italian Spiderman?' }],
      }
      this.setState({ mockServerValidations: validations })
    }, 3000)
  }
 
  submit = (values, pristineValues) => {
    // get all values and pristineValues on form submission
  }
 
  render() {
    return (
      <MaterialUIForm onSubmit={this.submit} validations={this.state.mockServerValidations}>
        <TextField label="Name" type="text" name="name" value="doge" />
 
        <Button variant="raised" type="submit">Submit</Button>
      </MaterialUIForm>
    )
  }
}

Form autoComplete and "on error" submission:

import MaterialUIForm from 'react-material-ui-form'
 
 
class MyForm extends React.Component {
  submit = (values, pristineValues) => {
    // get all values and pristineValues on form submission
  }
 
  render() {
    return (
      <MaterialUIForm autoComplete="on" disableSubmitButtonOnError={false} onSubmit={this.submit}>
        <TextField label="Name" type="text" name="name" value="doge" data-validators="isInt" />
 
        <Button variant="raised" type="submit">Submit</Button>
      </MaterialUIForm>
    )
  }
}

Getting form values on field update:

import MaterialUIForm from 'react-material-ui-form'
 
 
class MyForm extends React.Component {
  handleValuesChange = (values, pristineValues) => {
    // get all values and pristineValues when any field updates
  }
 
  handleFieldValidations = (field) => {
    // get field object when its validation status updates
  }
 
  submit = (values, pristineValues) => {
    // get all values and pristineValues on form submission
  }
 
  render() {
    return (
      <MaterialUIForm onSubmit={this.submit} onValuesChange={this.handleValuesChange} onFieldValidation={this.handleFieldValidations}>
        <TextField label="Name" name="name" value="doge" required />
 
        <Button variant="raised" type="submit">Submit</Button>
      </MaterialUIForm>
    )
  }
}

Stepper:

import Stepper, { Step, StepLabel } from 'material-ui/Stepper'
import MaterialUIForm from 'react-material-ui-form'
 
 
function getSteps() {
  return [
    'Step 1',
    'Step 2',
  ]
}
 
class MyForm extends React.Component {
  state = {
    activeStep: 0,
    errorSteps: [],
  }
 
  clickNext = () => {
    this.setState({
      activeStep: this.state.activeStep + 1,
    })
  }
 
  clickBack = () => {
    this.setState({
      activeStep: this.state.activeStep - 1,
    })
  }
 
  submit = (values, pristineValues) => {
    // get all values and pristineValues on form submission
  }
 
  updateErrorSteps = (field, errorSteps) => {
    this.setState({ errorSteps })
  }
 
  render() {
    const steps = getSteps()
    const { activeStep } = this.state
 
    return (
      <div>
        <Stepper activeStep={activeStep} alternativeLabel>
          {steps.map((label, i) => (
            <Step key={label}>
              <StepLabel error={errorSteps.includes(i)}>
                {label}
              </StepLabel>
            </Step>
          ))}
        </Stepper>
 
        <MaterialUIForm activeStep={activeStep} onFieldValidation={this.updateErrorSteps} onSubmit={this.submit}>
          {activeStep === 0 &&
            <React.Fragment>
              <TextField label="Name" name="name" value="" required />
              <Button variant="raised" onClick={this.clickNext}>Next</Button>
            </React.Fragment>
          }
 
          {activeStep === 1 &&
            <React.Fragment>
              <TextField label="Address" name="address" value="" required />
              <Button variant="raised" onClick={this.clickBack}>Back</Button>
              <Button variant="raised" type="submit">Submit</Button>
            </React.Fragment>
          }
        </MaterialUIForm>
      </div>
    )
  }
}

Dynamic array fields (notice the deletefieldrow prop on the "Remove Row" button):

import MaterialUIForm from 'react-material-ui-form'
import formData from 'form-data-to-object'
 
 
class MyForm extends React.Component {
  state = {
    rows: [{ _id: _.uniqueId() }],
    onSubmitValues: null,
  }
 
  addRow = () => {
    const { rows } = this.state
    rows.push({ _id: _.uniqueId() })
    this.setState({ rows })
  }
 
  removeRow = (index) => {
    const { rows } = this.state
    if (rows.length > 1) {
      rows.splice(index, 1)
      this.setState({ rows })
    }
  }
 
  submit = (values, pristineValues) => {
    // you can parse values to turn:
    // rows[0][label]: "label"
    // into:
    // rows: [{ label: "label" }]
    const parsedValues = formData.toObj(values)
  }
 
  render() {
    const steps = getSteps()
 
    return (
      <MaterialUIForm onSubmit={this.submit}>
        {this.state.rows.map((row, i) => (
          <Fragment key={row._id}>
            <TextField label="Label" name={`rows[${i}][label]`} value="" required />
            <TextField label="Value" name={`rows[${i}][value]`} value="" />
            { this.state.rows.length > 1 &&
              <Button onClick={()=> this.removeRow(i)} deletefieldrow={`rows[${i}]`}>Remove Row</Button>
            }
          </Fragment>
        ))}
        
        <Button variant="raised" onClick={this.addRow}>Add row</Button>
        <Button variant="raised" color="primary" type="submit">Submit</Button>
      </MaterialUIForm>
    )
  }
}

Custom components with custom handlers:

import MaterialUIForm from 'react-material-ui-form'
 
 
class MyForm extends React.Component {
  uploadFile = (event) => {
    console.log(event.target.files)
  }
 
  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <MaterialUIForm>
          {'Upload file: '}
          <input accept="image/*" style={{ display: 'none' }} id="raised-button-file" multiple type="file" onChange={this.uploadFile} />
          <label htmlFor="raised-button-file">
            <Button variant="raised" component="span">Upload</Button>
          </label>
        </MaterialUIForm>
      </div>
    )
  }
}
