Here we have to note that the parent table’s name should be used with under score id (_id) in sub_categories table’s column .

In my case, I used the categories table in the sub_categories table by categories_id.

Now go to your xyxController.php(app/Http/Controller), in my case, I will make changes in ArticleController.php


public function getCategories()
        $categories = DB::table('categories')->pluck("name","id");
        return view('article.create',compact('categories'));

    public function getSubCategories($id)
        $subcategories = DB::table("sub_categories")->where("category_id",$id)->pluck("name","id");
        return json_encode($subcategories);

Now go to web.php routes and use

Route::get('add-new-article', [ArticleController::class , 'getCategories']);
Route::get('dropdownlist/getsubcategories/{id}',[ArticleController::class , 'getSubCategories']);

Now go to the resources folder and create your blade file.


<form action="{{ URL::to('post-article-form') }}" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post">@csrf

<div class="form-group"><label for="category"> Select category </label>
<select class="form-control" name="category" required="">
<option value="">Select</option>@foreach ($categories as $key =&gt; $value)
<option value="{{ $key }}">{{ $value }}</option>@endforeach
<div class="form-group"><label for="subCategory">Select SubCategory:</label>
<select class="form-control" style="width: 250px;" name="subCategory">
<button class="btn btn-primary" type="submit">Submit</button>

    Now add JQuery AJAX to get the route of sub_categories according to categoryId.

Here we will pass the ‘dropdownlist/getsubcategories/’ +categoryID’ in url of jQuery.ajax.
The below code will be executed after selecting category. Now According to the selected category our AJAX will filter the sub_categories with the help of the selected category id.

<script type="text/javascript">
            jQuery(document).ready(function ()
                       var categoryID = jQuery(this).val();
                             url : 'dropdownlist/getsubcategories/' +categoryID,
                             type : "GET",
                             dataType : "json",
                                jQuery.each(data, function(key,value){
                                   $('select[name="subCategory"]').append('<option value="'+ key +'">'+ value +'</option>');

Now save the project and run the following command in the terminal.

php artisan serve

and open the http://localhost:8000/add-new-article
After Successful running the server, you will get a result like this,
