Laravel MessageBag Public API: __toString

November 29, 2016 —John Koster

When a MessageBag instance is cast into a string, its JSON representation is returned as the result. Internally this is accomplished by returning the result of the toJson method.

6$messageBag = new MessageBag([
7 'first' => ['The first message']

1{"first":["The first message"]}
