In Laravel, you can set the count(*) result as a field name by using the selectRaw method. Here's an example:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
$results = DB::table('users')
            ->selectRaw('count(*) as total_users')
            ->get();

$totalUsers = $results[0]->total_users;

echo $totalUsers;


In this example, the selectRaw method is used to specify the SQL query to retrieve the count of all users in the users table and alias it as total_users. This will return a collection with a single object containing the count result. You can then access the count value using the alias name total_users.
