I have a controller where I want to combine data from multiple tables with parallel structures. What I want to end up with in the end is one object I can return from the controller so I can parse it in Backbone.
I want to do something like this:
public function index()
$mc = MainContact::where('verified', '=', '1')->get();
$sm = SendMessage::where('verified', '=', '1')->get();
$obj = (object) array_merge((array) $mc, (array) $sm);
However,returns the following error in Laravel:
UnexpectedValueException: The Response content must be a string or object implementing
__toString(), "object" given.
How do I implement this method in Laravel?
