Getting my feet wet with Unit testing but running into an odd error with SPL exceptions

Method in model:

...
    public function sell(int $num = 1)
    {
        if($this->stock >= $num) {
            $difference = $this->stock - $num;
            $this->stock = $difference;
        } else {
            throw new InvalidArgumentException('Stock cannot fall below 0.');
        }

    }
...

My unit test:

    function testStockCannotFallBelowZero()
    {
        $this->expectException(\InvalidArgumentException::class);

        $product = factory(Product::class)->create(['stock' => 5]);
        $product->sell(6);
    }

Error received:

As @wilk_randall has stated you cant. Are you using Syldepay?

You can minimize the time of someone seeing the parameters. Fetch the parameters, store them in cache, then redirect the page with the cached parameters.

liquidsword left a reply on Authenticating Users To Allow Edit/update Their Own Profile

Thanks! I was not aware I could do that too a route. I was using $username as a slug for the front facing profile for public view and returning example.com/{username}/edit and a private view for the user.

liquidsword started a new conversation Authenticating Users To Allow Edit/update Their Own Profile

Hello! This is my first time using Laravel or any MVC framework, so bare with me. For my application, I want users to edit only their own profile. So far, I'm importing the Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth; into my controller. I check for the authenticated username that is signed in and compare with the username profile they want to edit. If user tries to edit a page that is not their own they are redirected to a 404 page. Below is some sample code in the controller.

PublicUserController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
// more uses...
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth; // Importing Auth Session

class PublicUserController extends Controller
{
    // ... Other Functions
    
    public function editUser($username)
    {
        $user = User::where('username', '=', $username)->first(); // slug for user profile
        
        // If the profile is not the user logged in.
        if (strcasecmp(Auth::user() -> username, $username) == 0) {
            return view('public.users.edit')->with('user', $user);
        } else {
            return redirect()->route('error.404');
        }
    }
    // ... More functions
}

Is this a acceptable method/practice? Thanks!
