protected $rules = [
'shipping_country' => ['max:60'],
'items' => ['array|numericarray']
];


My cusotom function is given below

Validator::extend('numericarray', function($attribute, $value, $parameters) {
foreach ($value as $v) {
if (!is_int($v)) {
return false;
}
}
return true;
});


How can use this validation method with about form request validation in laravel5?

Answer

Using Validator::extend() like you do is actually perfectly fine you just need to put that in a Service Provider like this:

<?php namespace App\Providers;

use Illuminate\Support\ServiceProvider;

class ValidatorServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider {

    public function boot()
    {
        $this->app['validator']->extend('numericarray', function ($attribute, $value, $parameters)
        {
            foreach ($value as $v) {
                if (!is_int($v)) {
                    return false;
                }
            }
            return true;
        });
    }

    public function register()
    {
        //
    }
}

Then register the provider by adding it to the list in config/app.php:

'providers' => [
    // Other Service Providers

    'App\Providers\ValidatorServiceProvider',
],

You now can use the numericarray validation rule everywhere you want
