To get the values of a checkbox array in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. In your HTML form, give each checkbox in the array a unique name and append [] to the name to indicate that it's an array. For example:
1
2
3
<input type="checkbox" name="fruits[]" value="apple">
<input type="checkbox" name="fruits[]" value="banana">
<input type="checkbox" name="fruits[]" value="orange">


  1. In your Laravel controller method, use the request helper function to retrieve the values of the checkbox array. For example:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
public function processForm(Request $request)
{
    $fruits = $request->input('fruits');
    
    // $fruits will now contain an array of the selected checkbox values
    // You can perform any required operations on the values here
    
    // Example: Convert the array to a comma-separated string
    $fruitsString = implode(', ', $fruits);
    
    // Rest of your code...
}


  1. You can now work with the $fruits array as needed in your Laravel controller method. In the example above, it is converted to a comma-separated string using the implode() function.


Note: If no checkboxes are selected, the $fruits array will be empty.
