Example of Eloquent Model Query with conditional Where condition in Laravel

In this example I will show you how to build an Eloquent query to filter results by certain field or fields of a table. In this example we will use simple Laravel Eloquent Model example to search a table and supply where condition on the fly, based on a given condition.

Example of Eloquent Model Query:

$query = ExampleModel::query();
if( $do_not_want_milestone_type )   {
    $query->where('type', '!=', ExampleModel::MILESTONE_TYPE);
$results = $query->get();

As shown in the example of Eloquent Model Query above if we do not want to include a certain ‘type’ in our results we can modify the query by injecting a where condition. This will exclude a particular record from the results.

The example above should apply to Laravel version 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. You can easily implement conditional where in a Model query with help of this tutorial.
