Someday ago i already posted with laravel 7 datatables simple example. you can also view from here : Click Here. and also posted Laravel 7 Server Side Processing to view click here: Click Here.

In this tutorial, i will show you how to add action column with view, edit and delete buttons in laravel datatables. so we can perform view, edit and delete action with yajra datatable.

So let's follow this tutorial and you will get layout as like bellow:

Preview:

Step 1: Install Laravel

In this step, if you haven't laravel application setup then we have to get fresh laravel 7 application. So run bellow command and get clean fresh laravel 7 application.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2 : Install Yajra Datatable

We need to install yajra datatable composer package for datatable, so you can install using following command:

composer require yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle

After that you need to set providers and alias.

config/app.php

.....

'providers' => [

....

Yajra\DataTables\DataTablesServiceProvider::class,

]

'aliases' => [

....

'DataTables' => Yajra\DataTables\Facades\DataTables::class,

]

.....

Step 3: Add Dummy Records

In this step, we will create some dummy users using tinker factory. so let's create dummy records using bellow command:

php artisan tinker

factory(App\User::class, 200)->create();

Step 4: Add Route

In this is step we need to create route for datatables layout file and another one for getting data. so open your routes/web.php file and add following route.

routes/web.php

Route::get('users', ['uses'=>'[email protected]', 'as'=>'users.index']);

Step 5: Create Controller

In this point, now we should create new controller as UserController. this controller will manage layout and getting data request and return response, so put bellow content in controller file:

app/Http/Controllers/UserController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use App\User;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use DataTables;

class UserController extends Controller

{

/**

* Display a listing of the resource.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function index(Request $request)

{

if ($request->ajax()) {

$data = User::select('*');

return Datatables::of($data)

->addIndexColumn()

->addColumn('action', function($row){

$btn = '<a href="javascript:void(0)" class="edit btn btn-info btn-sm">View</a>';

$btn = $btn.'<a href="javascript:void(0)" class="edit btn btn-primary btn-sm">Edit</a>';

$btn = $btn.'<a href="javascript:void(0)" class="edit btn btn-danger btn-sm">Delete</a>';

return $btn;

})

->rawColumns(['action'])

->make(true);

}

return view('users');

}

}

Step 6: Create View

In Last step, let's create users.blade.php(resources/views/users.blade.php) for layout and we will write design code here and put following code:

resources/views/users.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<script src="https://cdn.datatables.net/1.10.19/js/dataTables.bootstrap4.min.js"></script>

</head>

<body>

<div class="container">

<h1>Laravel Datatables Action Buttons Example - ItSolutionStuff.com</h1>

<table class="table table-bordered data-table">

<thead>

<tr>

<th>No</th>

<th>Name</th>

<th>Email</th>

<th>Action</th>

</tr>

</thead>

<tbody>

</table>

</div>

</body>

<script type="text/javascript">

$(function () {

var table = $('.data-table').DataTable({

processing: true,

serverSide: true,

ajax: "{{ route('users.index') }}",

columns: [

{data: 'id', name: 'id'},

{data: 'name', name: 'name'},

{data: 'email', name: 'email'},

{data: 'action', name: 'action', orderable: false, searchable: false},

]

});

});

</script>

</html>


Now we are ready to run our example so run bellow command ro quick run:

php artisan serve

Now you can open bellow url on your browser:

http://localhost:8000/users
