import { ErrorMessage } from '@hookform/error-message';

export default function App() {
  const { register, errors, handleSubmit } = useForm();
  const onSubmit = (data) => console.log(data);

  return (
    <form onSubmit={handleSubmit(onSubmit)}>
      <input
        name="singleErrorInput"
        ref={register({ required: 'This is required.' })}
      />
      <ErrorMessage errors={errors} name="singleErrorInput" />

      <ErrorMessage
        errors={errors}
        name="singleErrorInput"
        render={({ message }) => <p>{message}</p>}
      />

      <input name="name" ref={register({ required: true })} />
      <ErrorMessage errors={errors} name="name" message="This is required" />

      <input type="submit" />
    </form>
  );
}

  • Multiple Error Messages
import React from 'react';
import { useForm } from 'react-hook-form';
import { ErrorMessage } from '@hookform/error-message';

export default function App() {
  const { register, errors, handleSubmit } = useForm({
    criteriaMode: 'all',
  });
  const onSubmit = (data) => console.log(data);

  return (
    <form onSubmit={handleSubmit(onSubmit)}>
      <input
        name="multipleErrorInput"
        ref={register({
          required: 'This is required.',
          pattern: {
            value: /d+/,
            message: 'This input is number only.',
          },
          maxLength: {
            value: 10,
            message: 'This input exceed maxLength.',
          },
        })}
      />
      <ErrorMessage
        errors={errors}
        name="multipleErrorInput"
        render={({ messages }) =>
          messages &&
          Object.entries(messages).map(([type, message]) => (
            <p key={type}>{message}</p>
          ))
