Custom Validation For Lightning Field Value in Lightning

Component :

<aura:component>    
    <div class="slds-m-around--xx-large">
        <div class="slds-form--stacked">
            <div class="slds-form-element">  
                <div class="slds-form-element__control">
                    <ui:inputNumber aura:id="inputAge" label="Enter your age" class="slds-input"/>
                </div>
            </div>
            <div class="slds-m-around--medium">
                <button class="slds-button slds-button--brand" onclick="{!c.validateAge}">Validate Age</button>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>  
</aura:component>

Component JS Controller :

({
    validateAge : function(component, event, helper) {
        var inputAge = component.find('inputAge');
        var ageValue = inputAge.get('v.value');
        if(parseInt(ageValue) < 18){
            inputAge.set("v.errors", [{message:"Age should be more than 18...!!"}]);
            return;
        }
    }
})

Output :

Pagination Component:
Create a new Lightning Component Pagination.cmp.

Pagination JavaScript Controller:
Now create below JavaScript PaginationController.js controller for above Pagination.cmp component.

({
    doInit: function (component, event, helper) {
        // Set the columns of the Table 
        component.set('v.isSending',true);

    },
    previous: function (component, event, helper) {
        helper.previous(component, event);
    }
})

Pagination JavaScript Controller Helper:
Now create below JavaScript PaginationHelper.js helper for above PaginationController.js component.

        component.set("v.endPage",end);
        component.set('v.PaginationList', Paginationlist);
    }
})

Pagination Apex Controller:
Create below apex controller to use it in Pagination.cmp component.

public class PaginationController {
    @AuraEnabled
    public static List<Contact> getContacts(){
        List<Contact> contactList = new List<Contact>();
        contactList = [SELECT Id, Name, Email, Phone From Contact LIMIT 50];
        return contactList;
    }
}

Pagination App:

<!--PaginationApp.app-->
<aura:application extends="force:slds">
    <c:Pagination />    
</aura:application>

Output:

Apex Controller:

public class SampleAuraController {

    public static String firstAction() {
        return 'First Action';
    }
    
    @AuraEnabled
    public static String secondAction() {
        return 'Second Action';
    }
}

Lightning Component:

Lightning Component JS Controller:

({
    handleAction : function(component, event, helper) {
        var action1 = component.get("c.firstAction");
        action1.setCallback(this, function(response){

SVG in Lightning Component Bundle

SVG resource is to define a custom icon for the lightning component when it appears in the Lightning App Builder’s component pane. SVG icons is used in Salesforce Lightning App Builder or Community Builder.

Here is a lightning component with default SVG icon:

Sample Component:

<aura:component implements="flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes">
    <strong>Sample Component</strong>
</aura:component>

The default SVG icon looks like below:

Edit the SVG for custom SVG icon of above “Sample” lightning component: To customize the default SVG, click SVG in the component sidebar of the Developer Console.

Custom Sample Component SVG icon: Here I’ve changed the custom SVG icon to a rectangle filled with blue color. You can change it to as per your requirement.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd">
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" width="400" height="400">
	<rect width="400" height="300" style="fill:rgb(0,0,255);stroke-width:3;stroke:rgb(0,0,0)" />
</svg>

The custom SVG icon looks like below:

Display of Validation Rule Error on Visualforce Page

Here I’ve a custom “Student__c” object. There is a validation rule on “Date_of_Birth__c” field, that Date of Birth cannot be greater than today. And I’m using a visualforce page to insert the data in “Student__c” object. So, I need to show the validation rule error message in visualforce page.

Validation Rule:

Below is my controller which gave the solution for displaying validation error message on visualforce page.

Controller:

public with sharing class StudentExt {

    public Student__c student{get;set;}
    
    public StudentExt(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {
        student = (Student__c)controller.getRecord();
    }
    
    public Pagereference saveStudent() {
        try {
            Upsert student;
            return new Pagereference('/' + student.Id);
        }
        catch(DMLException de) {
            Apexpages.addMessage(new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.SEVERITY.FATAL, de.getDmlMessage(0)));
            return NULL;
        }
        catch(Exception e) {
            Apexpages.addMessage(new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.SEVERITY.FATAL, e.getMessage()));
            return NULL;
        }
    }
}

Visualforce Page

<apex:page standardController="Student__c" extensions="StudentExt" >
    <apex:pageMessages id="errormsg" />
    <apex:form >
        <apex:pageBlock >
            <apex:pageBlockButtons >
                <apex:commandButton value="Save" action="{!saveStudent}" reRender="errormsg"/>
                <apex:commandButton value="Cancel" action="{!Cancel}"/>
            </apex:pageBlockButtons>
            
            <apex:pageBlockSection columns="2" title="Information">
                <apex:inputField value="{!Student__c.First_Name__c}"/>
                <apex:inputField value="{!Student__c.Last_Name__c}"/>
                <apex:inputField value="{!Student__c.Date_of_Birth__c}"/>
