EloquentController.php - Basic Demo with Column Definition

IMPORTANT: When using make(), the package will rely filtering and sorting based on the index/arrangement of your select query.


NEVER USE SELECT(*) when using this approach or your DataTables filtering/sorting may not work properly.

Id Name Email Created At Updated At

EloquentController.php

    public function getBasicObject()
    {
        return view('datatables.eloquent.basic-columns');
    }

    public function getBasicObjectData()
    {
        $users = User::select(['id', 'name', 'email', 'created_at', 'updated_at']);

        return Datatables::of($users)->make();
    }

Javascript

    $('#users-table').DataTable({
        processing: true,
        serverSide: true,
        ajax: 'https://datatables.yajrabox.com/eloquent/basic-columns-data',
        columns: [
            {data: 0, name: 'id'},
            {data: 1, name: 'name'},
            {data: 2, name: 'email'},
            {data: 3, name: 'created_at'},
            {data: 4, name: 'updated_at'}
        ]
    });
