    }
}

Step 6 – Create Contact Us Form in Blade File

Now, Go to resources/views and create ajax-contact-us-form.blade.php. Then create one contact us form with name, email and message fields.

We have created an ajax contact us form, so, you can update the following code into ajax-contact-us-form.blade.php file:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Laravel 8 Ajax Form using jQuery Validation</title>
<meta name="csrf-token" content="{{ csrf_token() }}">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.5.2/css/bootstrap.min.css">
<script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery-validate/1.19.0/jquery.validate.min.js"></script>
<style>
.error{
color: #FF0000; 
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div class="container mt-4">
<div class="card">
<div class="card-header text-center font-weight-bold">
<h2>Laravel 8 Ajax Post Form Data on Controller with jQuery Validation Example</h2>
</div>
<div class="card-body">
<form name="contactUsForm" id="contactUsForm" method="post" action="javascript:void(0)">
@csrf
<div class="form-group">
<label for="exampleInputEmail1">Name</label>
<input type="text" id="name" name="name" class="form-control">
</div>          
<div class="form-group">
<label for="exampleInputEmail1">Email</label>
<input type="email" id="email" name="email" class="form-control">
</div>           
<div class="form-group">
<label for="exampleInputEmail1">Message</label>
<textarea name="message" id="message" class="form-control"></textarea>
</div>
<button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary" id="submit">Submit</button>
</form>
</div>
</div>
</div>	
<script>
if ($("#contactUsForm").length > 0) {
$("#contactUsForm").validate({
rules: {
name: {
required: true,
maxlength: 50
},
email: {
required: true,
maxlength: 50,
email: true,
},  
message: {
required: true,
maxlength: 300
},   
},
messages: {
name: {
required: "Please enter name",
maxlength: "Your name maxlength should be 50 characters long."
},
email: {
required: "Please enter valid email",
email: "Please enter valid email",
maxlength: "The email name should less than or equal to 50 characters",
},   
message: {
required: "Please enter message",
maxlength: "Your message name maxlength should be 300 characters long."
},
},
submitHandler: function(form) {
$.ajaxSetup({
headers: {
'X-CSRF-TOKEN': $('meta[name="csrf-token"]').attr('content')
}
});
$('#submit').html('Please Wait...');
$("#submit"). attr("disabled", true);
$.ajax({
url: "{{url('store-data')}}",
type: "POST",
data: $('#contactUsForm').serialize(),
success: function( response ) {
$('#submit').html('Submit');
$("#submit"). attr("disabled", false);
alert('Ajax form has been submitted successfully');
document.getElementById("contactUsForm").reset(); 
}
});
}
})
}
</script>
</body>
</html>

The following below jQuery and ajax code will validate form data before submitting/posting form data on the controller in laravel:

<script>
if ($("#contactUsForm").length > 0) {
$("#contactUsForm").validate({
rules: {
name: {
required: true,
maxlength: 50
},
email: {
required: true,
maxlength: 50,
email: true,
},  
message: {
required: true,
maxlength: 300
},   
},
messages: {
name: {
required: "Please enter name",
maxlength: "Your name maxlength should be 50 characters long."
},
email: {
required: "Please enter valid email",
email: "Please enter valid email",
maxlength: "The email name should less than or equal to 50 characters",
},   
message: {
required: "Please enter message",
maxlength: "Your message name maxlength should be 300 characters long."
},
},
submitHandler: function(form) {
$.ajaxSetup({
headers: {
'X-CSRF-TOKEN': $('meta[name="csrf-token"]').attr('content')
}
});
$('#submit').html('Please Wait...');
$("#submit"). attr("disabled", true);
$.ajax({
url: "{{url('store')}}",
type: "POST",
data: $('#contactUsForm').serialize(),
success: function( response ) {
$('#submit').html('Submit');
$("#submit"). attr("disabled", false);
alert('Ajax form has been submitted successfully');
document.getElementById("contactUsForm").reset(); 
}
});
}
})
}
</script>
