alex-greaves left a reply on How To Redirect A Form With Post Method When Validation Fails? • 1 year ago

Can you please clarify what happens when you submit a form with validation errors, and what you want to happen?

From your question it sounds like there is no problem. You said 'When i am trying to update a user having unique email, the validation fails and its showing error like email already exists.' So it shows the validation errors. I don't see what you need to happen.

Bootstrap 2.0.4+

Can you expand on what you want to retrieve? currently you just need a belongsTo relationships on the candidates and companies tables and you can retrieve that data from a user.

You can overwrite any Laravel error views by just creating a view for them:

e.g. to create a custom 500 error page create the view:


alex-greaves left a reply on Pass Data From Ajax To Controller Via Post And Back To Blade • 1 year ago

What you'll need to do is return a JSON response with the required data.

Judging by your js so far you want to just put pre-formatted HTML into the empty div in which case you'd want to create a new view and format the cities, render that view and return it as a JSON response. Something along the lines of the below:


public function getCities()
    $request = Request::all();
    $cities = City::where('country_id', $request->id)->get();

    $html = view('layouts.partials.cities')->with(compact('cities'))->render();
    return response()->json(['success' => true, 'html' => $html]);


Here you will have the cities and you will need to format them.

Then update your Javascript to:

        var id = $(this).val();
            url: baseUrl+"/get-cities/",
            method: "POST",
            success: function(data){

I would however suggest you change the ajax route you're posting to and instead use a get request. You aren't posting data, you're getting data i.e. the cities. Something along the lines of:

        var id = $(this).val();
            url: baseUrl + "/get-cities/" + id,
            method: "GET",
            success: function(data){

alex-greaves left a reply on Property [user] Does Not Exist On This Collection Instance. • 1 year ago

You may have set this up differently for whatever reason, but on your User model it should be - unless for some reason you have a user_id on your user table:

public function characters()
    return $this->hasMany(Character::class, 'user_id', 'id');

and your characters model should be:

public function user()
    return $this->belongsTo(User::class, 'user_id', 'id');

alex-greaves left a reply on Keep Redirecting Me To The Homepage • 1 year ago

Can you please explain what the issue is exactly, from my understanding you want the following:

  1. After completing User Registration.

    • Login the user
    • Redirect to the homepage
  2. When a user logs out

    • Log the user out
    • Redirect to the homepage

Are you saying: all the above criteria is met except when you try to log the user out, they get redirected to the homepage but remain logged in?

Can you please show where you're setting the tasks variable and where you're passing it to the view?

alex-greaves left a reply on Retrieving Data From Array • 1 year ago

This may well be to do with your query

$postcode = collect(Postcode::postcodeLookup($location->post_code))->all();

you're doing all(); rather than get();

alex-greaves left a reply on No Query Results For Model [App\\Document] • 1 year ago

@CodebyRay I don't think it is caused by the call to the API because his error is that there are no results for the query so it is at least running the query.

@dantekavala Try hitting Document::all(); instead of your current query and see if there are any results. If there are results check there are results which match your criteria i.e. they have 'null' in the expired field. If not check there are records on your documents table.

My response doesn't require VueJS. Replace is a basic Javascript function

var url = '{{ route("admin.edit_school", ":slug") }}'; url = url.replace(':slug', slug); window.location.href=url;

alex-greaves left a reply on How To Store Changed Form Input In Database • 1 year ago

The way you go about it depends on what you need it for and how it is you're changing the input.

For example if you were storing a text input but for whatever reason you wanted to make sure the text stored was all lowercase when creating a record you could just pass an array to the create method and set the values there rather than passing the input.

So rather than doing something like: $post->create($request->all());

You could do this: $post->create([ 'name' => strtolower($request->input('name')) ]);

alex-greaves left a reply on BadMethodCallException In Macroable.php Line 74: Method Specialization Does Not Exist • 1 year ago

The issue here is that you're calling a specialization method on the request class which doesn't exist.

Judging by the code I presume you're posting a form to create a doctor. So you need to set the spec_id equal to a value from the form or at least from somewhere it exists, your commented out version '$doctor->spec_id = $request->input('spec_id');' should work as long as there is an input with a name of 'spec_id'.

Also why are you trying to set a spec_id on the doctor? You've created a has many relationship so that a doctor can have many specializations, but by having a spec_id on the doctor you're limiting it to having 1 spec, instead there should be a doctor id on the specialization. I'm not sure about your business logic but to be honest this should be a pivot table so the specializations are re-usable.
