Laravel - Events - Dispatching Events

To dispatch an event, you may call the static dispatch method on the event. This method is made available on the event by the Illuminate\Foundation\Events\Dispatchable trait. Any arguments passed to the dispatch method will be passed to the event's constructor:

    
    order_id);
    
            // Order shipment logic...
    
            OrderShipped::dispatch($order);
        }
    }
	
When testing, it can be helpful to assert that certain events were dispatched without actually triggering their listeners. Laravel's built-in testing helpers makes it a cinch.
