What are Accessors?

Accessors create a dummy attribute on the object which you can access as if it were a database column. So, if your database has a user table and it has FirstName and LastName column and you need to get your full name then it will be like.

Syntax of Accessors :

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Example :

public function getFullNameAttribute()
  return $this->FirstName. " " .$this->LastName;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

After that, you can get the full user name with the below accessors.

{{ $user->full_name }}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Mutator is used to set the value of the attribute. A mutator transforms an Eloquent attribute value when it is set.

How to define a mutator,

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

above method on your model where {Attribute} is the "studly" cased name of the column you wish to access.

Example :


namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Register extends Model
     * Set the user's first name.
     * @param  string  $value
     * @return void
    public function setNameAttribute($value)
        $this->attributes['name'] = strtolower($value);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now you can use this in your controller.

use App\Models\Register;

$register= Register::find(1);

$register->name = 'Techsolutionstuff';
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
