To validate a field that depends on another field in Symfony, you can make use of Symfony's validation constraints and create a custom validation constraint. Here is an example of how you can do this:

  1. Firstly, create a custom validation constraint class. This class will be responsible for defining the validation rules for the dependent field. Create a file DependentFieldConstraint.php in your project's src/Validator/Constraints directory with the following code:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
// src/Validator/Constraints/DependentFieldConstraint.php

namespace AppValidatorConstraints;

use SymfonyComponentValidatorConstraint;

/**
 * @Annotation
 */
class DependentFieldConstraint extends Constraint
{
    public $message = 'The value of field "%dependedField%" is required when field "%field%" is "%condition%"';

    public $field;
    public $dependedField;
    public $condition;
}


  1. Next, create a constraint validator class to validate this constraint. Create a file DependentFieldValidator.php in the same directory with the following code:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
18
19
20
21
22
23
24
25
// src/Validator/Constraints/DependentFieldValidator.php

namespace AppValidatorConstraints;

use SymfonyComponentValidatorConstraint;
use SymfonyComponentValidatorConstraintValidator;

class DependentFieldValidator extends ConstraintValidator
{
    public function validate($value, Constraint $constraint)
    {
        // Get the value of the depended field
        $dependedFieldValue = $this->context->getRoot()->get($constraint->dependedField)->getData();

        // Do the validation based on the condition
        if ($constraint->condition === 'some_condition' && !$dependedFieldValue) {
            // Validation failed, add a violation
            $this->context->buildViolation($constraint->message)
                ->setParameter('%field%', $constraint->field)
                ->setParameter('%dependedField%', $constraint->dependedField)
                ->setParameter('%condition%', $constraint->condition)
                ->addViolation();
        }
    }
}


  1. Then, create a validation.yaml file to configure the validation rules. Create a validation.yaml file inside the config directory with the following code:
1
2
3
# config/validation.yaml
AppValidatorConstraintsDependentField:
    - AppValidatorConstraintsDependentFieldValidator


  1. Finally, use the newly created custom constraint to validate the field in your form type class. Inside your form type class, add the DependentField constraint to the field you want to validate and pass the required options:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
18
use AppValidatorConstraintsDependentField;

// ...

public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options)
{
    $builder
        ->add('field')
        ->add('dependedField', null, [
            'constraints' => [
                new DependentField([
                    'field' => 'field',
                    'dependedField' => 'dependedField',
                    'condition' => 'some_condition',
                ]),
            ],
        ]);
}


In this example, the dependedField will be validated based on the provided condition. If the condition fails, a validation error will be displayed with the message defined in the DependentFieldConstraint class.


Remember to customize the conditions and validation rules as per your requirements.
