Laravel 5: Search box using jQuery & ajax

In your route:

We create route that will accept custom parameter.

In this case the url that it be accepting is in this format employees/search/data?id=12345. You can add additional parameters, if you want.

In your Controller:

Nothing special, we normal search through employee table. We get the custom parameter using request()->id.

The optional is that we filter the eloquent result, we then return a json message based on the result and we will capture it in our view, and we can do something about it using jQuery.

Note: You can always return whatever you want.

Sharing is caring!
