Input type URL pattern validation

Input forms are basic forms in the UI pages to take input from the user.

Following are step-by-step guides to add validation to the input form using a regular expression pattern.

  • Create a vuejs component InputUrlComponent under the src/components folder

    VueJS component contains HTML, javascript, and styles under the following tags.

    // html template code
    // javascript code
    // css styles

    HTML template contains UI elements logic ie view layer to display to the user. It looks at how the user sees the page. javascript code contains controller logic on how data is passed to/from the view layer. CSS styles - contains styles UI elements

  • Created input elements to view the layer

      placeholder="Website url"

    An input text box is displayed with type=url only v-model is a vuejs directive to have a two-way data binding @input and @change are two change handlers while the user types the text.

  • in scripts of the Vue component, Add the following things

    Created three instance members url - to hold the form input value isValid- store the validation errors of an input type data regex: is a regular expression to test url validation

    Regular expression pattern for URL form The same regular expression that can be used for javascript applications also


    In the methods section, Create two methods, change - to handle change event bounded to @change event in the template. isUrlValid function- checks regular expression

      const url =
    isURLValid: function(inputUrl) {
      this.isValid=   this.reg.test(inputUrl)
  • Finally, Display the error using the v-if directive attribute

        <div class="error" v-if="!isValid">URL is Invalid</div

Here is the complete source code for InputUrlComponent

  <div class="hello">
    <h3>Vuejs Input type url validation</h3>
    <br />

    <input type="url" placeholder="Website url" v-model="email"  @input="change($event)"
    <div class="error" v-if="!isValid">URL is Invalid</div

export default {
  name: "InputUrl",
  data() {
    return {
      url: "",
      isValid: false,
      regex: [-a-zA-Z0-9@:%_+.~#?&//=]{2,256}(.[a-z]{2,4})?\b(/[-a-zA-Z0-9@:%_+.~#?&//=]*)?
  methods: {
      const url =
    isURLValid: function(inputUrl) {
      this.isValid=   this.regex.test(inputUrl)

<!-- Add "scoped" attribute to limit CSS to this component only -->
<style scoped>
h3 {
  margin: 40px 0 0;
ul {
  list-style-type: none;
  padding: 0;
li {
  display: inline-block;
  margin: 0 10px;
