Validation error using datepicker

Posted 9 months ago by johnnw

Im using datepicker in a input field. The datepicker use this format "dd/mm/yy". When I submit the form I get a laravel validation error "The date date is not a valid date." Do you know how to fix?


$this->validate($request, [
    'date' => 'required|date',
$pdf = Pdf::create([
    'date' => Carbon::parse($request->date)->format('d/m/Y'),


<div class="form-group col-md-6">
    <label for="date"Date</label>
    <div class="input-group date" data-provide="datepicker">
        <input type='text' class="form-control"
               value="{{ old('date') }}" name="date" placeholder="DD/MM/YYY"/>
        <span class="input-group-addon"><i class="fa fa-calendar text-primary" aria-hidden="true"></i></span>

JS Format:

$( "" ).datepicker({
    format: 'dd/mm/yy'
