Customising and extending Laravel Form Requests

Original – by Freek Van der Herten – 1 minute read

Form requests are often used for validation purposes only, but they can do a whole lot more. You can manipulate data before and after validation, and you can easily add methods of your own.

In this video I'll demonstrate all these possiblities.

Want to see more videos like this one? Head over to the Readable Laravel video series on our website.

Stay up to date with all things Laravel, PHP, and JavaScript.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.

What is your suggestion to prevent fetching multiple times the `EmailList`? Memoization? Or there's a built-in solution?

Great Video. When overriding the all() method will those changes be available in $request->Validated(); as it does when you override validationData() method?
