Step 1: Create Route

In this is step we need to create some routes for google autocomplete address example view.

routes/web.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\GoogleController;

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Web Routes

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

|

| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

|

*/

Route::get('google-autocomplete', [GoogleController::class, 'index']);

Step 2: Create Controller

in this step, we need to create GoogleController and add following code on that file:

app/Http/Controllers/GoogleController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class GoogleController extends Controller

{

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function index()

{

return view('googleAutocomplete');

}

}

Step 3: Google Map API Key in Env

here, we will add new variable in .env file fo set google map api key. so let's add as bellow:

.env

GOOGLE_MAP_KEY=YOUR_GOOGLE_API_KEY

Step 4: Create Blade Files

resources/views/googleAutocomplete.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">

<head>

<meta charset="utf-8">

$(document).ready(function () {

$("#latitudeArea").addClass("d-none");

$("#longtitudeArea").addClass("d-none");

});

</script>

<script>

google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', initialize);

function initialize() {

var input = document.getElementById('autocomplete');

var autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(input);

autocomplete.addListener('place_changed', function () {

var place = autocomplete.getPlace();

$('#latitude').val(place.geometry['location'].lat());

$('#longitude').val(place.geometry['location'].lng());

$("#latitudeArea").removeClass("d-none");
