Laravel 5 – Strange behaviour I am ytrying to understand

just trying to understand something. A Project can have many Document. In the Document Controller, I do this within the create function (removed non important code)

public function create(Project $project)
$documents = Document::all();
$documentLink = $_GET['documentType'];

$document = Helper::findInCollection($documents, "name", $documentLink);


if ($document) {
return View::make($documentLink.'Doc.edit', compact('project', 'document'));

So I essentially get all the documents. I then get the document I am currently working on. I then pass this to the edit view for that document. The dd displays the correct document to me, so this is fine.

In the edit view for that document, I also see the correct document I want if I do

{{ $document }}

So I know I have the correct Document. The Form Model for this edit page is

{!! Form::model($project->document, [
'method' => 'PATCH',
'route' => ['projects.documents.update', $project, $document]
]) !!}

So I am passing the route my Project Model and my Document model. Now I would presume that $document would be the document I am working on.

However, in the update function, if I do

public function update(Project $project, Document $document)

return null;

It outputs an empty Document. However, if I remove Document from the functions parameters e.g.

public function update(Project $project, $document)

return null;

It outputs the id of the document I was working on.

Why would this be the case? Why does passing Document output an empty document, but removing this only shows the id of the current Document.

Any information appreciated.
