I'm trying to work through an example of form validation using the spatie / form-backend-validation library.
Im posting to an api url where the controller simply validates the request
$validatedData = $request->validate([ 'address1' => 'required|string|max:255', 'address2' => 'string|max:255', 'city' => 'string|max:255', 'county' => 'string|max:255', 'country' => 'string|max:255', 'zip' => 'required|string|max:255' ]);
At this stage im only console logging whether there are errors or not
this.form.post('/api/address') .then(response => console.log('success')) .catch(response => console.log('error'));
It seems to be working, but when i post (with errors) i log 'error' in the console, but i also get a POST project6.test/api/address 422 (Unprocessable Entity) error (in the console as well). Reading the laravel docs, it is expected that the controller will return a 422, so im wondering is the POST error to be expected (and therefore can be ignored) or is there something i should be doing to prevent it?
