Route::get('ajax-crud-datatable', [DataTableAjaxCRUDController::class, 'index']);
Route::post('store-company', [DataTableAjaxCRUDController::class, 'store']);
Route::post('edit-company', [DataTableAjaxCRUDController::class, 'edit']);
Route::post('delete-company', [DataTableAjaxCRUDController::class, 'destroy']);

Step 6 – Create AJAX CRUD Datatables Controller

Create a controller by using the following command on the command prompt to create a controller file:

php artisan make:controller DataTableAjaxCRUDController

After that, visit at app/Http/controllers and open DataTableAjaxCRUDController.php file. And update the following code into it:

<?php

class DataTableAjaxCRUDController extends Controller
{
	/**
	 * Display a listing of the resource.
	 *
	 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
	 */
	public function index()
	{
	    if(request()->ajax()) {
	        return datatables()->of(Company::select('*'))
	        ->addColumn('action', 'company-action')
	        ->rawColumns(['action'])
	        ->addIndexColumn()
	        ->make(true);
	    }
	    return view('companies');
	}
	 
	 
	/**
	 * Store a newly created resource in storage.

	 */
	public function store(Request $request)
	{  

	    $companyId = $request->id;

	    $company   =   Company::updateOrCreate(
	    	        [
	    	         'id' => $companyId
	    	        ],
	                [
	                'name' => $request->name, 
	                'email' => $request->email,
	                'address' => $request->address
	                ]);    
	                    
	    return Response()->json($company);

	}
	 
	 
	/**

	 *
	 * @param  \App\company  $company
	 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
	 */
	public function edit(Request $request)
	{   
	    $where = array('id' => $request->id);

	 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
	 */
	public function destroy(Request $request)
	{

Explaination of above given jQuery, ajax and javascript code:

On the companies.blade.php, we have created 5 jQuery, ajax, and javascript custom and built-in yajra datatables functions, which are the followings:

  • add()

The add() function will contain the given code and it’s show company add modal:

function add(){
$('#CompanyForm').trigger("reset");
$('#CompanyModal').html("Add Company");
$('#company-modal').modal('show');
$('#id').val('');
}  
  • editFunc()

The editFunc() function will contain the given code and it’s show company edit modal with company details:

function editFunc(id){
$.ajax({
type:"POST",
url: "{{ url('edit-company') }}",
data: { id: id },
dataType: 'json',
success: function(res){
$('#CompanyModal').html("Edit Company");
$('#company-modal').modal('show');
$('#id').val(res.id);
$('#name').val(res.name);
$('#address').val(res.address);
$('#author').val(res.author);
$('#email').val(res.email);
}
});
} 
  • deleteFunc()

The add() function will contain below given code and it’s delete company from database and yajra datatables:

function deleteFunc(id){
if (confirm("Delete Record?") == true) {
var id = id;
// ajax
$.ajax({
type:"POST",
url: "{{ url('delete-company') }}",
data: { id: id },
dataType: 'json',
success: function(res){
var oTable = $('#ajax-crud-datatable').dataTable();
oTable.fnDraw(false);
}
});
}
}
  • DataTable()

The DataTable() function will contain below given code and it’s render list of companies with pagination, search, sorting functionality:

$('#ajax-crud-datatable').DataTable({
processing: true,
serverSide: true,
ajax: "{{ url('ajax-crud-datatable') }}",
columns: [
{ data: 'id', name: 'id' },
{ data: 'name', name: 'name' },
{ data: 'email', name: 'email' },
{ data: 'address', name: 'address' },
{ data: 'created_at', name: 'created_at' },
{data: 'action', name: 'action', orderable: false},
],
order: [[0, 'desc']]
});
  • jQuery submit()

This submit function will send data to controller file using ajax for insert or update form data into database:

$('#CompanyForm').submit(function(e) {
e.preventDefault();
var formData = new FormData(this);
$.ajax({
type:'POST',
url: "{{ url('store-company')}}",
data: formData,
cache:false,
contentType: false,
processData: false,
success: (data) => {
$("#company-modal").modal('hide');
var oTable = $('#ajax-crud-datatable').dataTable();
oTable.fnDraw(false);
$("#btn-save").html('Submit');
$("#btn-save"). attr("disabled", false);
},
error: function(data){
console.log(data);
}
});
});

company-action.blade.php

<a href="javascript:void(0)" data-toggle="tooltip" onClick="editFunc({{ $id }})" data-original-title="Edit" class="edit btn btn-success edit">
Edit
</a>
<a href="javascript:void(0);" id="delete-compnay" onClick="deleteFunc({{ $id }})" data-toggle="tooltip" data-original-title="Delete" class="delete btn btn-danger">
Delete
</a>
