Laravel - check if Ajax request

I have been trying to find a way to determine ajax call in Laravel but i don't find any document regarding it.

I have a

function which i want to handle situation differently based on the nature of request. Basically this is a resource controller method that is bound to GET request.

public function index()
return Redirect::to('login');

if(isAjax()) // This is what i am needing.
return $JSON;

$data = array();
$data['records'] = $this->table->fetchAll();


I know the other methods of determining the Ajax request in PHP but i want something specific to Laravel.



I tried using

echo 'Ajax';

But i am receiving error :
Non-static method Illuminate\Http\Request::ajax() should not be called statically, assuming $this from incompatible context

The class shows that this is not a static method.


Maybe this helps. You have to refer the @param

         * Display a listing of the resource.
         * @param  Illuminate\Http\Request $request
         * @return Response
        public function index(Request $request)
                return "AJAX";
            return "HTTP";
