Formik Section Sum Up
Formik is a popular form management library for React applications. It simplifies the process of handling forms, including form state management, form submission, and form validation. Here's a summary of the key steps involved in integrating Formik:
- Create the Form Component: Set up a custom form component in the React app to define the form structure and handle form-related functionality.
- Set up Formik: Import the
useFormikhook from the Formik library. Use this hook to initialize Formik and provide initial values, an
onSubmitcallback, and optional validation logic for the form.
- Create Form Markup: Within the Form component, define the form markup using HTML elements and input fields. Customize the form structure to match the requirements.
- Embed Formik: Integrate Formik into the form component by connecting Formik's properties and methods with the form fields. Use
formik.valuesto manage form field values and
formik.handleSubmitto handle form submission.
- Initialize Values for Inputs: Set initial values for the form fields, allowing them to be pre-filled with default values when the form loads.
- Implement Form Submission: Define the form submission logic within the
onSubmitcallback provided by Formik. Access the form field values from the
valuesparameter and perform the necessary actions.
- Add Form Validation: Utilize the
validateproperty of the Formik instance to implement form validation. Define validation rules and error messages based on the form field values. Conditionally display error messages.
