Update dynamic form fields in database (Insert/Delete)

Posted 1 year ago by lara_net

I have a dynamic form where the user should be able to add or remove data while updating.

I am able to update the exact number fields that are in the database table. But what I want is if a user clicked a 'Delete Subject' and 'Update' buttons, I want that entire row deleted from the database.

And, if he added a subject by clicking 'Add another Subject' the form and clicked 'Update' I want those subjects added. What am I missing here?

My Edit View

<form accept-charset="UTF-8" action="{{action('[email protected]', $id)}}" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" files="true">
<label>Student Name:</label> <input type="text"  name="name">
<label>Student Address:</label> <input type="text" name="name">
<label>Student Subject Feature</label>

@foreach($subjects as $sub)
<input type="text" name="sub_code[]" value="{{ $sub->sub_code  }}" placeholder="Subject Code">
<input type="text" name="sub_name[]" value="{{ $sub->sub_name  }}" placeholder="Subject Name">
<input type="file" name="sub_img[]">
<a href="#" class="remove_field">Delete This Subject</a>
<button class="add_more">Add Subject</button>

<button type="submit">Update</button>

My form Subject Screenshot

Students Model

protected $fillable = ['name', 'address'];
public function subjects() {
    return $this->hasMany(Subjects::class, 'stu_id');

Subjects Model

protected $fillable = ['stu_id', 'sub_code', 'sub_name', 'sub_img'];

public function subs(){
    return $this->belongsTo(Students::class, 'stu_id');

Update Method

public function update(Request $request, $id){
$subjects = Subjects::with(['subs'])->where('stu_id', $stu->id)->get();

foreach( $subjects as $new_subjects)
    $sub_images =request()->file('sub_img');    
    $sub_name = request('sub_name');
       $pathToStore = public_path('images');    
       if($request->hasFile('sub_img') && isset($sub_images[$i]))
          $sub_img_name = uniqid() . '.' . $sub_images[$i]->getClientOriginalExtension();
           $sub_images[$i]->move(public_path('/images/'), $sub_img_name);            
           $new_subjects->sub_img = '/images/'.$sub_img_name;

           $new_subjects->sub_code = request('sub_code')[$i];
           $new_subjects->sub_name = request('sub_name')[$i];
           $new_subjects->sub_img = "images/{$sub_img_name}";

What am I missing? Should I use other method for UpSert?
