Set Total Records

In some cases, we need to manually set the total records of our DataTables and skip its internal counting functionality. To achieve this, we can use setTotalRecords($count) api.

use DataTables;

Route::get('user-data', function() {
    $model = App\User::query();

    return DataTables::eloquent($model)
                ->setTotalRecords(100)
                ->toJson();
});
