Validation Events

vee-validate listens on your inputs for a set of specific events that once triggered will fire a validation on that field. by default vee-validate listens for the input event.

If input event validation is too aggressive for your users, you can choose to fire validation based on other triggers like change. You can configure the default events vee-validate listens for or even designate specific events for specific fields.

Changing Default Events

Vue.use(VeeValidate, {
  events: 'change'
});

If you want to listen for multiple events, including custom ones. Just use a pipe separated list of event names:

Vue.use(VeeValidate, {
  events: 'change|custom'
});

Changing Events Per Field

You can specify which events this field should be validated on by using the data-vv-validate-on attribute which takes the same value as the events config:

<input name="field" v-validate="'required'" data-vv-validate-on="change|custom">

Disabling Events Validation

You may want to disable all validation triggered by events, for example you only want to validate once the user clicks the submit button, you can do that by specifying an empty string to the events config which will disable all listeners for all fields.

Vue.use(VeeValidate, {
  events: ''
});

Or use the .disable modifier on the v-validate directive:

<input name="field" v-validate.disable="'required'">

Later in your code you can call this.$validator.validate() to trigger validation once the user submits the form:

export default {
  // ...
  methods: {
    onSubmit () {
      this.$validator.validate().then(result => {
        if (!result) {
          // do stuff if not valid.
        }
      });
    }
  }
  // ...
}
