Form Validation: Building the trust with Accurate Data

When it comes to your cost calculator, precise information from users is key to generating dependable estimates. The Cost Calculator Builder offers a helpful feature called form validation. It allows you to set guidelines for how users enter their information. This ensures they provide data in the right format, preventing errors and keeping your calculations on point. Let's explore the different validation options available for common fields like name, email, website URL, and phone number. By using these tools, you can build a cost calculator that not only delivers reliable estimates but also fosters user confidence by ensuring a smooth experience.

Validation Types for Common Fields

The Cost Calculator Builder offers a range of validation options to suit different field types. Here's how you can leverage them for some commonly used form fields:

Name Field Validation

For the Name field, users are supposed to consider using a text input with validation to ensure only alphabetical characters are entered.

This regular expression allows spaces between names, accommodating both first names or last names entered together. Make sure to include instructional text for users, such as "Please enter your full name using only letters."

To integrate the validated form into your webpage, simply use the drag-and-drop feature to move the form element to the desired location.

After you add the new element, ensure you customize fields like description, placeholder, etc., according to your needs.

Before reviewing the front-end appearance for the users, ensure your work is saved.

Email Field Validation

To ensure inputs are valid email addresses, the Email field uses a built-in validation type. This validation requires the presence of a @ symbol and a domain, following standard email format rules. By incorporating this simple yet effective method, it increases the accuracy of information provided by users.

To add the validated form to your webpage, just drag and drop the form element into the location where you want it.

Just like the Name field validation, Email field should also incorporate similar explanations. This ensures users can easily understand what is required, enhancing form completion rates.

Website Field Validation

Validating a Website URL requires checking for a valid internet address. Fortunately, like with email validation, you can use a type specific for URLs which automatically checks for a proper format. For instance, specifying the input type as URL ensures users enter a valid web address: This approach helps filter out incorrect URL entries, guiding users to provide their website information correctly.

When filling out information, please ensure that you include all necessary details. In the settings tab, be mindful to check or uncheck the relevant fields based on whether they are mandatory or optional. Remember, not every user may have a website URL, so adjust settings accordingly.

Phone Number Field Validation

Validating a phone number, including its country code, is essential to ensure its correct format. Utilizing phone number validation tools that check for proper format and country codes can significantly reduce incorrect entries. By setting the input type to include the country code, you encourage users to enter valid phone number information right from the start, streamlining the data collection process. This approach not only filters out invalid phone numbers but also guides users in providing accurate information.

Like above, when filling out information, please ensure that you include all necessary details. Including placeholder, name and description of the Phone Number Element
