How to check request is Ajax or not in Laravel?

By Hardik Savani August 13, 2016 Category : Laravel Ajax

Sometimes, we need to check request is ajax or not in laravel 5, laravel 6, laravel 7 and laravel 8. If you want to call same method but if request is ajax then you perform different, then you can do by using $request object.

In Laravel 5 $request object provide method to check request is ajax or not, In following example you can see how it's works.

You can check directly from Request facade and also from request object, both are same, so let's see bellow example.

Example 1:

public function index(Request $request)

{

if($request->ajax()){

return response()->json(['ajax']);

}

return response()->json(['http']);

}

Example 2:

public function index()

{

if(Request::ajax()){

return response()->json(['ajax']);

}

return response()->json(['http']);

}

I hope it can help you...
