Prepare view :
At first add the bootstrap alert code at before @yield(‘content’) in your app.blade.php file which in resources/views directory.

    <div class="container">
        <div class="alert alert-success">
            <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert" aria-hidden="true">&times;</button>
            <strong>Success!</strong> {{Session::get('success')}}

Here we have used 1 session key for show flash messages.We’ll use this session key for show any type of success operation messages.

Now open your home.blade.php and go to at <a href=”#”>Delete</a> and change it by

<a href="{{url('/delete')}}/{{$row->id}}">Delete</a>

Route Setup :
Open your routes.php file and add another route for delete record.


Explain: We will send the id in url and catch it by our controller’s destroy method.

Define destroy logic in TodoController
Open your TodoController.php and go to destroy method and define it like below

public function destroy($id)
    if(isset($id)) {
        $record = Todo::find($id);
        if($record) {
            return redirect('/')->with('success', 'Record has been deleted');

Okay now try to delete.If you follow the instruction you can process delete operation successfully.

      You have to send a flash message from your controller by with() method and show it where you want.
      In controller
      return redirect()->back()->with(‘success’,’Successfully deleted!’);

      In view
