Creating URLs using the route action/handler

    I see that you can also use the shorthand action() function, nice.

    Any idea how this sort of URL looks like? Does it go to the routes file and check whether there's a route that is connected to the same controller?

      The URL is the same as the one that route names would generate:

      route('post.create'); // /posts/create
      url()->action([PostController::class, 'create']); // /posts/create

        Thanks Samuel!

        Okay! So with this routes file:

        Route::get('/user', [PostController::class, 'index'])->name('prefix.user.index');



        is giving the same as this:

        url()->action([PostController::class, 'index']);

          Yeah, should be the same thing. You can test that in tinker to check.
