I have tackled about the native way in searching record in this post Laravel 5 simple search box using GET method
Now I will show you how to make a search box using Search Box using jQuery + Ajax.
- Return json data which you can manipulate
- Clean url, since you use ajax
- You can add variety of additional jquery effects like toaster messages, etc
- Additional code needed
Things you need to know:
- Ajax and jquery little background or can read the code
- Knowledge of json
- I used employee table, so anything from model to controller are employee related
What our search box will be?
- An input type text
- jQuery will trigger when enter button is pressed
- No search button
Now lets get started.
