Laravel validator is not working inside the modal.
how to make it work? while inputting blank values it will just refresh the page after submit button.

@if ($errors->any())
<div class="alert alert-danger">
    <strong>Whoops!</strong> There were some problems with your input.<br><br>
        @foreach ($errors->all() as $error)
        <li>{{ $error }}</li>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


            'name' => 'required',
            'introduction' => 'required',
            'location' => 'required',
            'cost' => 'required'

        return redirect()->route('projects.index')
            ->with('success', 'Project updated successfully');
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Probably a bit late, but if it doesn't help you it might still be useful for other people. I think you are mixing two approaches:

First, you can submit a form by sending a POST request to the server, and the server will then redirect you to a new page. In that case you can use the $errors directive to catch anything that went wrong during validation.

When using a modal, you submit your data using AJAX. This means you basically never leave the page you are on. The server will still return a response, but you have to process this in your JavaScript (specifically, in the AJAX error callback function).
