In this small post, we will solve the laravel 8 form class not found error, many time we have received errors like the laravel 8 class 'form' not found
We have received this error message because of Laravel 8 version made changes in their library file, you can solve this issue by using "laravelcollective/html" package. laravelcollective/html package will provide you with HTML and FORM class helper.
laravelcollective/html is provided HTML textbox, radio button, select box, checkbox, and many more with laravel. They provide different methods to use those input fields we need to add this facade class 'collective\html\formfacade' if not added.
Using the below command you can install the latest and supported version of "laravelcollective html"
For laravel 8 form class not found run the below command.
composer require laravelcollective/html
If you are using the 5.x version then you need to add the below code In the app.php file.
'providers' => [ ... Collective\Html\HtmlServiceProvider::class, ... ], 'aliases' => [ ... 'Form' => Collective\Html\FormFacade::class, 'Html' => Collective\Html\HtmlFacade::class, ... ],
If you are using a lower laravel collective version like v5.6 or below then add code like below.
Goto your project's composer.json file to require laravelcollective/html.
composer require "laravelcollective/html":"^5.8.0"
Now, add your new provider to the providers array of config/app.php :
'providers' => [ // ... Collective\Html\HtmlServiceProvider::class, // ... ],
after that, add two class aliases to the aliases array of config/app.php
'aliases' => [ // ... 'Form' => Collective\Html\FormFacade::class, 'Html' => Collective\Html\HtmlFacade::class, // ... ],
