Laravel 5 – confirmation box for delete a member from database example

In this tutorial, I will tell you how to show confirmation prompt before deleting any thing from database in Laravel using “Bootstrap Confirmation” plugin.

This is very important to give alerts to users on each activity that may affect your database.

This example will show you that how to delete a record from MySQL Database in Laravel but before deleting a record, you will get a bootstrap confirmation box. If you confirm by clicking the delete button in confirmation box then it will delete the record from database.

Boostrap confirmation plugin provide pretty confirmation box that will not interrupt a user’s workflow.

There are also lots of plugins available to show confirmatin box like sweetalert, bootbox, javascript confirm dialog etc.

Create Table “members”

To perform database activity, create a “members” table by running following query :

CREATE TABLE 'members' (
 'name' varchar(100) NOT NULL,
 'email' varchar(100) NOT NULL,
 'updated_at' datetime NOT NULL,

Add routes

To start with Laravel application, we will define routes to handle the request. In this example, I need two routes, one for listing members having delete action and another for delete activity.

So add following routes in your routes/web.php file.


Route::get('members', 'MemberController@index');
Route::delete('member/{id}', ['as'=>'members.destroy','uses'=>'MemberController@destroy']);

Create MemberController

Now i will create “MemberController.php” file in following path app/Http/Controllers/MemberController.php having two methods.

  1. <?php
  2. namespace AppHttpControllers;
  3. use IlluminateHttpRequest;
  4. class MemberController extends Controller
  5. {
  6.     public functionindex(Request $request){        
  7.         $members=DB::table("members")->paginate(5);
  8. returnview('members',compact('members'))
  9.         ->with('i',($request->input('page',1)-1)*5);        
  10.     }
  11.     public functiondestroy($id){
  12.         DB::table("members")->delete($id);
  13.         returnredirect()->back()->with('success','Member deleted');
  14.     }
  15. }

namespace AppHttpControllers;

use IlluminateHttpRequest;

class MemberController extends Controller

    public function index(Request $request){        
        $members = DB::table("members")->paginate(5);
        return view('members',compact('members'))
                ->with('i', ($request->input('page', 1) - 1) * 5);        

    public function destroy($id){
        return redirect()->back()->with('success','Member deleted');

Create members blade file

In this step, i will create a view file “members.blade.php” in following path resources/views/members.blade.php.

To use bootstrap confirmation plugin, we need to install following dependencies :

  • bootstrap.min.css >= 3.2
  • jQuery >= 1.9
  • bootstrap.min.js >= 3.2
  • bootstrap-confirmation.min.js

You can also change the direction of confirmation box using data-placement attribute.
There are four direction left, top, bottom, right.

This is much pretty in comparison with other plugins, if you wish you can use javascript confirm dialog.
