How to set a default attribute value for a Laravel Eloquent model

0 votes

If I try declaring a property, like this:

public $quantity = 9;

it doesn't work, because it is not considered an "attribute", but merely a property of the model class. Not only this, but also I am blocking access to the actually real and existent "quantity" attribute.

What should I do, then?

Hello @kartik,

This is what I'm doing now:

protected $defaults = array(
   'quantity' => 9,
);

public function __construct(array $attributes = array())
{
    $this->setRawAttributes($this->defaults, true);
    parent::__construct($attributes);
}
