Replied to Extend A Model $fillable From A Vendor Component

Your suggestion seems to work also @snapey.

Apart from the minor typo, that is.

Thanks!

Replied to Extend A Model $fillable From A Vendor Component

Indeed what I wanted to do does not seem necessary. This in my controller seems to work...

    public function store(StoreCa

    	$attributes = ['name' => $request->name, 'description' => $request->description, 'parent_id' => $request->parent, 'icon' => $request->icon];
    	$category = app('rinvex.categories.category')->fill($attributes);
	$category->save(); // Saved as root
		

        return $category; 
    }

So changed

$category = app('rinvex.categories.category')->create($attributes); 

to

$category = app('rinvex.categories.category')->fill($attributes);

Thanks for the support guys.

Replied to Extend A Model $fillable From A Vendor Component

I can't write it this way because 'icon' is not set a fillable in the model of the Rinvex Categories component.

    protected $fillable = [
        'slug',
        'name',
        'description',
        NestedSet::LFT,
        NestedSet::RGT,
        NestedSet::PARENT_ID,
    ];

If I add 'icon" manually everything works fine but I don't want to update a file vendor file.

@Sti3bas; this is the store function in my controller

    public function store(StoreCategory $request)
    {

    	$attributes = ['name' => $request->name, 'description' => $request->description, 'parent_id' => $request->parent, 'icon' => $request->icon];
    	$category = app('rinvex.categories.category')->create($attributes); 
		$category->save(); // Saved as root

        return $category; 
    }

I tried all kinds of variations of your suggestion but without success.

Thanks for your reply @snapey but how else will I be able to write a category with a value for the new 'icon" column?

Started a new Conversation Extend A Model $fillable From A Vendor Component

I am using Rinvex Category component and I added a column "icon" in the "categories" table.

Now I need to make that row fillable.

I created a model "Category.php" were I'm trying to extend the model from the component. This is the code from my model...


namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Category extends \Rinvex\Categories\Models\Category
{
        protected $fillable = [
        'icon',
    ];
}

This does not seem to work.

I'm getting this error when I ty to save my new category

General error: 1364 Field 'icon' doesn't have a default value (SQL: insert into `categories` 

Could anyone point me in the right direction, please?

Thanks!
