ElementInternals.reportValidity()

The reportValidity() method of the ElementInternals interface checks if the element meets any constraint validation rules applied to it.

If reportValidity returns false then a cancelable invalid event is fired on the element.

This method behaves in a similar way to ElementInternals.checkValidity(), however it additionally sends the value of ElementInternals.validationMessage to the user agent for display.

Syntax

ElementInternals.reportValidity();

Parameters

None.

Return value

A Boolean, true if the element meets all validation constraints.

Exceptions

DOMException NotSupportedError
Thrown if the element does not have its formAssociated property set to true.

Examples

In the following example ElementInternals.setValidity() is used to indicate that the element does not meet validation rules. Calling reportValidity() returns false, and the value "my message" is sent to the user agent for display.

After calling setValidity again, this time indicating that all rules are marked false, reportValidity() returns true.

let element = document.getElementById("join-checkbox");
element.internals_.setValidity({'valueMissing':true},"my message");
console.log(element.internals_.reportValidity()); // false
element.internals_.setValidity({});
console.log(element.internals_.reportValidity()); // true
