Mailable: Non Numeric Value Encountered

Posted 3 months ago by vincej

I need to pass an alpha-numeric variable $ref into the email I need to send to the customer. This references their quotation data. Example: jac123456-10.

However when it hits the Mail class I get the error. See Here:

class SendCustomerQuote extends Mailable
    use Queueable, SerializesModels;

    public function __construct($ref)
        $this->ref = $ref;

    public function build()
        return $this->markdown('emails.customer.customer_quote'/$this->ref);  // HERE IS THE ERROR. 

I have read on SO that this is a "feature" of PHP 7.1 & 7.2

So - How do I get around this problem, with out changing all my references to a pure numeric??

Many thanks !
