What is a benefit of implementing client-side validation?

Hey there, @sgarai701. Welcome to the forums!

In short, this:

“Client-side validation is an initial check and an important feature of good user experience; by catching invalid data on the client-side, the user can fix it straight away. If it gets to the server and is then rejected, a noticeable delay is caused by a round trip to the server and then back to the client-side to tell the user to fix their data.”

Let’s take Twitter, for example. You can change your handle (@YourUsername). But every handle has to be unique, right? Well, as you type your desired username, you receive immediate feedback to let you know if it’s available or not. You don’t have to click “Submit”, and wait for the round trip to the server.

There’s a whole detailed article available right here:

Client side validation helps you in creating better user experience to show validation errors without re-loading page.

If you will server-side validation then validations are checked once user submits form, then it comes back with error, after reloading page, which is not good as per User experience.

Also, it is better to check for valid values on both client-side first and then server-side also.

You can do client side validation using Javascript form validation or without Javascript using HTML5 Required attribute, can use pattern attribute for email validation.
