How Switch Case Statement Works

Switch statement is used to check the condition of many blocks one by one and it will execute the matched block. If no matches found then it will execute the default block and break the statement.

Let’s see the example of the Laravel blade switch case statement.

Example Laravel Blade Switch Case

Laravel switch statements can be constructed using the @switch, @case, @break, @default and @endswitch directives:

app/Http/Controllers/PostController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class PostsController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Create a new controller instance.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function index()
    {
        $status = 'publish';
        return view('posts.post', compact('status'));
    }
}

resources/views/posts/post.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   <head>
      <title>Laravel Switch Case Statement Example | ScratchCode</title>
   </head>
   <body>
        @switch($status)
            @case('publish')
                <span class="status">Publish</span>
                @break

            @case('draft')
                <span class="status">Draft</span>
                @break

            @default
                <span class="status">Trash</span>
        @endswitch
   </body>
</html>

You can see in the above example, we are passing the status (publish, draft, trash) of post from the controller. Then in the blade file, we have used the switch case statement which will execute the publish case and then break the statement.

Example Switch Case In Laravel Controller

Let’s take a simple example for a better understanding. Let’s say we have a PostController and in that, we need to create a new post or update the post as per the form submission.

To do that we are passing status(save, update) variable while form submission and by using switch case statement we are checking the condition to perform save or update based on the condition matched.

We need to use the same switch case statement as we are using in the PHP.

app/Http/Controllers/PostController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\Post;
use App\Requests\PostRequest;

class PostsController extends Controller
{
    public function store(PostRequest $request)
    {
        switch($request->status) {
            case('save'):

                $posts = Post::Create([
                    'name' => $request->name;
                    'description' => $request->description;
                    'status' => $request->status;
                ]);

                $msg = 'Post successfully saved.';

                break;

            case('update'):
                
                $posts = Post::find($request->id)->first();

                $post->name = $request->name;
                $post->description = $request->description;
                $post->status = $request->status;

                $post->save();

                $msg = 'Post successfully updated.';

                break;

            default:
                $msg = 'Something went wrong.';
        }

        return view('posts.post', compact('msg'));
    }
}
