In Laravel, you can handle unchecked checkboxes by checking if the checkbox was submitted as part of the request and setting a default value if it was not checked.


Here's an example of how you can handle unchecked checkboxes in a Laravel controller method:

public function store(Request $request)
{
    $data = $request->validate([
        'checkbox' => 'nullable'
    ]);

    // Check if the checkbox was submitted
    if (!isset($data['checkbox'])) {
        $data['checkbox'] = 0; // Set a default value for unchecked checkbox
    }

    // Continue with saving the data to the database or other actions

    return redirect()->route('some.route');
}


In this example, we check if the checkbox was submitted as part of the form data. If it was not submitted, we set a default value of 0 for the checkbox. This way, you can handle unchecked checkboxes in your Laravel application.
