Help me understand the non-object error message

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

This code works (and correctly shows just one result in my view);

$people = DB::table('people')->where('id', '=', $person_id)->get();

But this one doesn't;

$people = DB::table('people')->where('id', $person_id)->first();

And produces the error;

Trying to get property of non-object (View: /media/sf_sandbox/health/app/views/agreement/display.blade.php)

The `people` table just has a few fields of information on the individual with a primary key called `id`.

 

I followed the Laravel guide on select statements. I don't understand what the error is trying to tell me and I don't get why that second statement is wrong. What's so wrong about it? I just want to understand Laravel/Objects better....

 

Thanks

My guess would be that your condition in the second query doesn't match anything (no row has id=$person_id) so the first method returns false.

 

Verify that $person_id contains a valid ID and matches a row in your database.
