WebSolutionStuff | Mar-12-2022 | Categories : Laravel PHP jQuery

In this article, we will see laravel 9 datatables filter with dropdown. Here we will add datatables custom filter using field and searching data without refresh datatable. In this example, we will learn the datatable custom filter dropdown server side using ajax call.

So, let's see the dropdown filter in laravel 9, laravel 9 datatables custom filter,  jquery datatable custom filter dropdown, jquery datatable filter dropdown.

Using yajra datatable package you can directly list records with pagination, sorting as well as filter feature available but if you want to add advance filter like datatable dropdown or dropdown search filter in laravel datatables or yajra datatables filter column then you need to add below code step by step to integrate yajra datatable dropdown filter with laravel.

Step 1 : Install Laravel 9

Step 2 : Integrate Yajra Datatable for Dropdown Filter 

Step 3 : Add New Column in Users Table for filter column

Step 4 : Add Record using Tinker

Step 5 : Add Route

Step 6 : Create Controller

Step 7 : Create Blade file for View


Step 1 : Install laravel 9

In this step, we have installed a new laravel 9 application.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel laravel-9-datatable-example



Step 2 : Integrate Yajra Datatable for Dropdown Filter 

Now, we need to install or integrate yajra datatable using the composer command in your terminal.

composer require yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle

This step is optional if you are using Laravel 5.5+. Open the file config/app.php and then add the following service provider.

'providers' => [

After completing the step above, use the following command to publish configuration & assets.

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=datatables


Step 3 : Add New Column in Users Table for filter column

Now, we will add a new column in the user table using the migration command.

php artisan make:migration add_approved_column

In the database/migrations/ file path you can find the add_approved_column.php file. And add the below code in that file.

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
class AddApprovedColumn extends Migration
    public function up()
        Schema::table('users', function (Blueprint $table) {
    public function down()

After changes in the migration file run the below command in your terminal.

php artisan migrate



Step 4 : Add Record using Tinker

In this step, we will add some dummy records to check our example using tinker.

php artisan tinker

factory(App\User::class, 50)->create();


Step 5 : Add Route

Now add a route in the routes/web.php file.

Route::get('users', ['uses'=>'[email protected]', 'as'=>'users.index']);


Step 6 : Create Controller

In this step, we will add the below code in the controller file.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use App\User;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use DataTables;
class UserController extends Controller
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function index(Request $request)
        if ($request->ajax()) {
            $data = User::select('*');
            return Datatables::of($data)
                    ->addColumn('approved', function($row){
                            return '<span class="badge badge-primary">Yes</span>';
                            return '<span class="badge badge-danger">No</span>';
                    ->filter(function ($instance) use ($request) {
                        if ($request->get('approved') == '0' || $request->get('approved') == '1') {
                            $instance->where('approved', $request->get('approved'));
                        if (!empty($request->get('search'))) {
                             $instance->where(function($w) use($request){
                                $search = $request->get('search');
                                $w->orWhere('name', 'LIKE', "%$search%")
                                ->orWhere('email', 'LIKE', "%$search%");
        return view('users');



Step 7 : Create Blade file for View

Now, create a blade file add datatable with a dropdown like the below code.

        ajax: {
          url: "{{ route('users.index') }}",
          data: function (d) {
                d.approved = $('#approved').val(),
       = $('input[type="search"]').val()
        columns: [
            {data: 'id', name: 'id'},
            {data: 'name', name: 'name'},
