In order to check the user's role and show select option in Laravel, you can use the following approach:

  1. First, you need to create a role column in your users table to store the user's role.
  2. Define the role constants in your User model or in a separate Role.php file:
1
2
3
4
class Roles {
    const ADMIN = 'admin';
    const USER = 'user';
}


  1. Use middleware to check the user's role before accessing the page where you want to show the select option. For example:
1
2
3
Route::group(['middleware' => ['auth', 'role:admin']], function() {
    // This route can only be accessed by users with the admin role
});


  1. In your blade view file, you can show the select option based on the user's role:
1
2
3
4
<select name="role" id="role">
    <option value="{{ Roles::ADMIN }}" @if(Auth::user()->role == Roles::ADMIN) selected @endif>Admin</option>
    <option value="{{ Roles::USER }}" @if(Auth::user()->role == Roles::USER) selected @endif>User</option>
</select>


  1. Make sure to update the user's role when they change it in the select option:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
public function updateRole(Request $request) {
    $user = Auth::user();
    $user->role = $request->input('role');
    $user->save();

    return redirect()->back();
}


By following these steps, you can check the user's role and show the select option in Laravel.
