AJAX is use to communicate with the server and perform action like – database manipulation, file upload, etc. without the need to refresh whole page

1. Table structure

I am using users table in the example.

2. Database Configuration

Open .env file.

Specify the host, database name, username, and password.

3. Model

Create a Page model.

Here, create 4 methods –

  • addUser – This method is used to handle AJAX request to insert a new record. Read values and initialize $data. Call insertData where pass $data. If record successfully inserted then return insert id otherwise 0.
  • updateUser – This method is used to handle AJAX request to update record. Read values and initialize $data. Call updateData() method where pass $editid and $data for update record.
  • deleteUser – This method is used to handle AJAX request to delete a record. Call deleteUser() method where pass $id.

6. View

Create a new index.blade.php file in resources/views/ directory.

Download jQuery library and store in public/js/ directory or you can use CDN.


Add csrf_token() in <meta> and include jQuery library script.

Create <table > for displaying the user list. Add row in <tbody> with 3 textboxes and a button for inserting a record with jQuery AJAX.


Read csrf_token from <meta > tag and assign in CSRF_TOKEN variable.

  • Fetch records –

Create fetchRecords() function which called on document ready state.

From here send AJAX GET request to "getUsers". On successful callback empty the <tbody>rows except the first row.

Loop on the response data and read values. Create new <tr > and add input element for value edit in <td >. Also, add update and delete button to send AJAX request on click.

Append new <tr > in <tbody>.

  • Add record –

On add button click read input values from the first row and send AJAX POST request to "addUser" where pass CSRF_TOKEN, username, name, and email as data.

On successful callback if response>0 then add new row in <tbody >.

  • Update record –

On update button click get the edit id from data-id and read name and email.

Send AJAX POST request to "updateUser" where pass CSRF_TOKEN, editid, name, and email as data.

  • Delete record –

On delete button click send AJAX GET request to "deleteUser" and delete id from data-id. On successful callback remove the <tr>.
