Laravel 5 entry :: get an error


Why am I having this error? I tried to add use Illuminate\Http\Request; but same error? Also is $username = $request->input('username'); the same as $username = Input::get('username');?

The error I get is:

FatalErrorException in LoginController.php line 22: Class 'App\Http\Controllers\Input' not found

class LoginController extends Controller {

  // Display the login form
  public function showLogin()
    return View::make('login');

  // Process submission of the login form by verifying user’s credentials
  public function processLogin()
    $username = Input::get('username');
    $password = Input::get('password');
    if ($username === 'prince' && $password === '[email protected]') {
      return 'Access granted!';
    } else {
      return 'Access denied! Wrong username or password.';

Add use Input; after Namespace ... and then use as Input::get(..) or don't add use and call \Input::get(..). Find more here:
