php – Laravel post route with url parameters

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I’m facing a big wall of larval routing and I can’t seem to find a solution

I have this form in a view template

<form url="/request/{{$equipment->url}}" method="POST">
                    <div class="row">
                        <div class="col-sm-4">
                            <div class="mt10">Start Date:</div>
                            <input type="date" required name="starting_date" value="" placeholder="From" class="request-input request-date mb10">
                        </div>
                        <div class="col-sm-4">
                            <div class="mt10">End Date:</div>
                            <input type="date" required name="ending_date" value="" placeholder="To" class="request-input request-date mb10">
                        </div>
                        <div class="col-sm-4">
                            <div class="mt10">Quantity</div>
                            <input type="number" required name="quantity" value="" placeholder="Quantity" class="request-input mb10">
                        </div>
                    </div>
                    <div class="row">
                        <div class="col-sm-4">
                            <div class="mt10">Voltage</div>
                            <input type="number" required name="voltage" value="" placeholder="Voltage" class="request-input mb10">
                        </div>
                        <div class="col-sm-4">
                            <div class="mt10">Param 1</div>
                            <input type="text" required name="param_1" value="" placeholder="Parameter" class="request-input mb10">
                        </div>
                        <div class="col-sm-4">
                            <div class="mt10">Param 2</div>
                            <input type="text" required name="param_2" value="" placeholder="Parameter" class="request-input mb10">
                        </div>
                    </div>
                    <div class="row">
                        <div class="col-sm-12">
                            <button class="btn btn-block button-orange">Get quotes now</button>
                        </div>
                    </div>
                </form> 

and this is the corresponding routes

Route::group([ 'middleware' => 'rental'], function(){
 Route::get('/my-requests/{readby_url}', '[email protected]');
 Route::post('/request/{equipment_url}', '[email protected]');
 Route::post('/request/create', '[email protected]');
 Route::post('/request/accept', '[email protected]');
});

My issue is with Route::post('/request/{equipment_url}', '[email protected]');
as it seems to not accept url parameters when the method is set to post.

i.e it throws the error

MethodNotAllowedHttpException in RouteCollection.php line 201:
in RouteCollection.php line 201
at RouteCollection->methodNotAllowed(array('GET', 'HEAD')) in RouteCollection.php line 188
at RouteCollection->getRouteForMethods(object(Request), array('GET', 'HEAD')) in RouteCollection.php line 140
at RouteCollection->match(object(Request)) in Router.php line 746
at Router->findRoute(object(Request)) in Router.php line 655
at Router->dispatchToRoute(object(Request)) in Router.php line 631
at Router->dispatch(object(Request)) in Kernel.php line 237

I want to pass a parameter and post data at the same time.

Is there a way to make this work? I’ve been told that Route::post handles GET as well but it doesn’t seem to work.

How to&Answers:

The problem has nothing to do with Laravel

<form url="/request/{{$equipment->url}}" method="POST">

replace url with action

<form action="/request/{{$equipment->url}}" method="POST">

Answer:

The HTTP POST verb doesn’t accept parameters from the URL like GET, it accepts them from the Body of the HTTP POST. To fetch the post parameters you use the code below:

In routes.php:

Route::post('/request', '[email protected]');

and in your PagesController access the form input using one of the input methods such as below

public function request() 
{
    return Input::get('equipment_url');
}

Answer:

You can not send get parameters to post route.

But you can achieve that by a simple trick, just pass your value ({{$equipment->url}}) in form’s hidden filed or in session.

For Example:

html

<form url="test/{{$equipment->url}}" method="POST">
    {{Input::hidden('name-of-field', $equipment->url)
    <div class="row">
        .......
    </div>
</form>

route

Route::post('test/{any-variable}', ['as' => 'test', 'uses' => '[email protected]']);

controller

public function test()
{
    echo "<pre>";
    dd(Input::all());
}

result

array(1) {
           ["name-of-field"]=>
            string(5) "your value here"
          }
