In this tutorial we will see how to use boolean value in laravel 9. Boolean value are 0,1 and true, false, For this section we will create blog post crud and add status in boolean value. also we will see how to validate boolean value. there are multiple way we can store boolean value like using checked box, radio button we will see both.

Step 1: Install Laravel & Connect Database

Run below command to create laravel project.

composer create-project laravel/laravel laravel-boolean
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now, you have to connect the laravel app to the database, hence open the .env configuration file and add the database credentials as suggested below.

.env

DB_CONNECTION=mysql
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=database_name
DB_USERNAME=database_user_name
DB_PASSWORD=database_password
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step 2: Install Breeze

Install laravel breeze via composer:

composer require laravel/breeze --dev
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, run below command.

php artisan breeze:install
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And final install Dependencies

npm install && npm run dev 
php artisan migrate
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step 3: Create Blog Modal Migration and Controller

Run below command to create model, migration and controller

php artisan make:model Blog -mcr
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Add boolean status and give false or 1 default value.

create_blogs_table.php

public function up()
{
    Schema::create('blogs', function (Blueprint $table) {
        $table->id();
        $table->string('title');
        $table->text('content');
        $table->boolean('status')->default(false);
        $table->timestamps();
    });
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

app/Models/Blog.php

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Blog extends Model
{
    use HasFactory;

    protected $fillable = [
        'title',
        'content',
        'status' 
    ];
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

web.php

Route::resource('blogs', BlogController::class);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step 4: Add Boolean value BlogController

1.Add boolean value store using 'status' => $request->status == 'on' ? 1 : 0

2.To use this method we need to use checkbox in blade file.

app/Http/Controllers/BlogController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use App\Models\Blog;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class BlogController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function index()
    {
        $blogs = Blog::all();

        return view('blogs.index', compact('blogs'));
    }

    /**
     * Show the form for creating a new resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function create()
    {
        return view('blogs.create');
    }

    /**
     * Store a newly created resource in storage.
     *
     * @param  \Illuminate\Http\Request  $request
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function store(Request $request)
    {
        $this->validate($request, [
            'title' => 'required|string|max:255',
            'content' => 'required'
        ]);

        $blog = Blog::create([
            'title' => $request->title,
            'content' => $request->content,
            'status' => $request->status == 'on' ? 1 : 0
        ]);


        return redirect()->route('blogs.index');
    }

    /**
     * Display the specified resource.
     *
     * @param  \App\Models\Blog  $blog
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function show(Blog $blog)
    {
        return view('blogs.show', compact('blog'));
    }

    /**
     * Show the form for editing the specified resource.
     *
     * @param  \App\Models\Blog  $blog
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function edit(Blog $blog)
    {
        return view('blogs.edit', compact('blog'));
    }

    /**
     * Update the specified resource in storage.
     *
     * @param  \Illuminate\Http\Request  $request
     * @param  \App\Models\Blog  $blog
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function update(Request $request, Blog $blog)
    {
        $request->validate([
            'title' => 'required|string|max:255',
            'content' => 'required'
        ]);

        $blog->update([
            'title' => $request->title,
            'content' => $request->content,
            'status' => $request->status == 'on' ? 1 : 0
        ]);

        return redirect()->route('blogs.index');
    }

    /**
     * Remove the specified resource from storage.
     *
     * @param  \App\Models\Blog  $blog
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function destroy(Blog $blog)
    {
        $blog->delete();

        return redirect()->route('blogs.index');
    }
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Step 5: Create Blade View File

Add input type checkbox to store boolean.

Use boolean value in laravel 9 with validation

1.Add boolean value with validation using 'status' => 'required|boolean:0,1,true,false'

2.To use this method we need to use radio input in blade file.
app/Http/Controllers/BlogController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use App\Models\Blog;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class BlogController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function index()
    {
        $blogs = Blog::all();

        return view('blogs.index', compact('blogs'));
    }

    /**
     * Show the form for creating a new resource.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

    public function create()
    {
        return view('blogs.create');
    }

     *

    public function store(Request $request)

        ]);

        ]);


        return redirect()->route('blogs.index');
    }

            'content' => 'required',
            'status' => 'required|boolean:0,1,true,false'
