How to set flash message in Laravel?

Flash messages are brief messages that are saved in the session and are presented to the user for a little duration.When a user completes an activity, such as completing a form successfully or running into an error, they are commonly used to send feedback or notifications to the user.


Step 1: Set Up Routes

Open routes/web.php file and define a route for displaying the flash message. For example:

Route::get('/flash-message', function () {
    return view('flash-message');


Step 2: Create a Blade View

Create a new file resources/views/flash-message.blade.php and add the following content:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Laravel - Implement Flash Messages with example</title>
        <div class="alert alert-success">
            {{ session('success') }}

        <div class="alert alert-danger">
            {{ session('error') }}

    <h1>Flash Message Example</h1>
    <a href="/flash-message">Show Flash Message</a>


Step 3: Create a Controller

Next, run the following command in your terminal to create a new controller: 

php artisan make:controller FlashMessageController


Open FlashMessageController.php file in the app/Http/Controllers directory and then replace its code with the below code:


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class FlashMessageController extends Controller
    public function showMessage(Request $request)
        // Flash success message
        $request->session()->flash('success', 'Flash message example - success.');

        // Flash error message
        $request->session()->flash('error', 'Flash message example - error.');

        return view('flash-message');


Step 4: Update the Route

Update the routes/web.php file to use the controller method instead of the closure:

use App\Http\Controllers\FlashMessageController;

Route::get('/flash-message', [FlashMessageController::class, 'showMessage']);


Step 5: Run the Application

Run the following command in your terminal to view output:

php artisan serve


You should see a flash message example and a link to display the flash message if you browse to http://localhost:8000/flash-message in your web browser.


When you click the link, the flash messages will be displayed on the page, demonstrating the usage of flash messages in Laravel.


Note: Before completing these steps, ensure that Laravel is installed correctly and configured.


That's it! You now have a basic example of how to use flash messages in Laravel. You can customize the flash message content and styling to fit your needs.
