Layout

Getting started

Layout component classes can be found in the Filament\Form\Components namespace.

They reside within the schema of your form, alongside any fields.

If you're using the layout components in a Livewire component, you can put them in the getFormSchema() method:

protected function getFormSchema(): array
{
return [
// ...
];
}

If you're using them in admin panel resources or relation managers, you must put them in the $form->schema() method:

public static function form(Form $form): Form
{
return $form
->schema([
// ...
]);
}

Components may be created using the static make() method. Usually, you will then define the child component schema() to display inside:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Grid;
 
Grid::make()
->schema([
// ...
])

Columns

You may create multiple columns within each layout component using the columns() method:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Card;
 
Card::make()->columns(2)

For more information about creating advanced, responsive column layouts, please see the grid section. All column options in that section are also available in other layout components.

Controlling field column span

You may specify the number of columns that any component may span in the parent grid:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Grid;
use Filament\Forms\Components\RichEditor;
use Filament\Forms\Components\TextInput;
 
Grid::make(3)
->schema([
TextInput::make('name')
->columnSpan(2),
// ...
])

You may use columnSpan('full') to ensure that a column spans the full width of the parent grid, however many columns it has:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Grid;
use Filament\Forms\Components\RichEditor;
use Filament\Forms\Components\TextInput;
 
Grid::make(3)
->schema([
TextInput::make('name')
->columnSpan('full'),
// ...
])

Instead, you can even define how many columns a component may consume at any breakpoint:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Grid;
use Filament\Forms\Components\TextInput;
 
Grid::make([
'default' => 1,
'sm' => 3,
'xl' => 6,
'2xl' => 8,
])
->schema([
TextInput::make('name')
->columnSpan([
'sm' => 2,
'xl' => 3,
'2xl' => 4,
]),
// ...
])

Setting an ID

You may define an ID for the component using the id() method:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Card;
 
Card::make()->id('main-card')

Custom attributes

The HTML of components can be customized even further, by passing an array of extraAttributes():

use Filament\Forms\Components\Card;
 
Card::make()->extraAttributes(['class' => 'bg-gray-50'])

Global settings

If you wish to change the default behaviour of a component globally, then you can call the static configureUsing() method inside a service provider's boot() method, to which you pass a Closure to modify the component using. For example, if you wish to make all card components have 2 columns by default, you can do it like so:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Card;
 
Card::configureUsing(function (Card $card): void {
$card->columns(2);
});

Of course, you are still able to overwrite this on each field individually:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Card;
 
Card::make()->columns(1)

Saving data to relationships

You may load and save the contents of a layout component to a HasOne, BelongsTo or MorphOne Eloquent relationship, using the relationship() method:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Fieldset;
use Filament\Forms\Components\FileUpload;
use Filament\Forms\Components\Textarea;
use Filament\Forms\Components\TextInput;
 
Fieldset::make('Metadata')
->relationship('metadata')
->schema([
TextInput::make('title'),
Textarea::make('description'),
FileUpload::make('image'),
])

In this example, the title, description and image is automatically loaded from saved to the metadata relationship, and saved again when the form is submitted. If the metadata record does not exist, it is automatically created.

To set this functionality up, you must also follow the instructions set out in the field relationships section. If you're using the admin panel, you can skip this step.

Grid

Generally, form fields are stacked on top of each other in one column. To change this, you may use a grid component:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Grid;
 
Grid::make()
->schema([
// ...
])

By default, grid components will create a two column grid for the Tailwind md breakpoint and higher.

You may pass a different number of columns to the grid's md breakpoint:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Grid;
 
Grid::make(3)
->schema([
// ...
])

To customize the number of columns in any grid at different breakpoints, you may pass an array of breakpoints and columns:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Grid;
 
Grid::make([
'default' => 1,
'sm' => 2,
'md' => 3,
'lg' => 4,
'xl' => 6,
'2xl' => 8,
])
->schema([
// ...
])

Since Tailwind is mobile-first, if you leave out a breakpoint, it will fall back to the one set below it:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Grid;
 
Grid::make([
'sm' => 2,
'xl' => 6,
])
->schema([
// ...
])

Fieldset

You may want to group fields into a Fieldset. Each fieldset has a label, a border, and a two-column grid by default:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Fieldset;
 
Fieldset::make('Label')
->schema([
// ...
])

You may use the columns() method to customize the grid within the fieldset:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Fieldset;
 
Fieldset::make('Label')
->schema([
// ...
])
->columns(3)

Tabs

Some forms can be long and complex. You may want to use tabs to reduce the number of components that are visible at once:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Tabs;
 
Tabs::make('Heading')
->tabs([
Tabs\Tab::make('Label 1')
->schema([
// ...
]),
Tabs\Tab::make('Label 2')
->schema([
// ...
]),
Tabs\Tab::make('Label 3')
->schema([
// ...
]),
])

The first tab will be open by default. You can change the default open tab using the activeTab() method:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Tabs;
 
Tabs::make('Heading')
->tabs([
Tabs\Tab::make('Label 1')
->schema([
// ...
]),
Tabs\Tab::make('Label 2')
->schema([
// ...
]),
Tabs\Tab::make('Label 3')
->schema([
// ...
]),
])
->activeTab(2)

Tabs may have an icon and badge, which you can set using the icon() and badge() methods:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Tabs;
 
Tabs::make('Heading')
->tabs([
Tabs\Tab::make('Notifications')
->icon('heroicon-o-bell')
->badge('39')
->schema([
// ...
]),
// ...
])

Wizard

Similar to tabs, you may want to use a multistep form wizard to reduce the number of components that are visible at once. These are especially useful if your form has a definite chronological order, in which you want each step to be validated as the user progresses.

use Filament\Forms\Components\Wizard;
 
Wizard::make([
Wizard\Step::make('Order')
->schema([
// ...
]),
Wizard\Step::make('Delivery')
->schema([
// ...
]),
Wizard\Step::make('Billing')
->schema([
// ...
]),
])

We have different setup instructions you're looking to add a wizard to an admin panel resource Create page or a table action. Following that documentation will ensure that the ability to submit the form is only available on the last step.

Each step has a mandatory label. You may optionally also add a description for extra detail:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Wizard;
 
Wizard\Step::make('Order')
->description('Review your basket')
->schema([
// ...
]),

Steps may also have an icon, which can be the name of any Blade icon component:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Wizard;
 
Wizard\Step::make('Order')
->icon('heroicon-o-shopping-bag')
->schema([
// ...
]),

You may use the submitAction() method to render submit button HTML or a view at the end of the wizard, on the last step. This provides a clearer UX than displaying a submit button below the wizard at all times:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Wizard;
use Illuminate\Support\HtmlString;
 
Wizard::make([
// ...
])->submitAction(view('order-form.submit-button'))
 
Wizard::make([
// ...
])->submitAction(new HtmlString('<button type="submit">Submit</button>'))

You may use the startOnStep() method to load a specific step in the wizard:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Wizard;
 
Wizard::make([
// ...
])->startOnStep(2)

If you'd like to allow free navigation, so all steps are skippable, use the skippable() method:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Wizard;
 
Wizard::make([
// ...
])->skippable()

Section

You may want to separate your fields into sections, each with a heading and description. To do this, you can use a section component:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Section;
 
Section::make('Heading')
->description('Description')
->schema([
// ...
])

You may use the columns() method to easily create a grid within the section:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Section;
 
Section::make('Heading')
->schema([
// ...
])
->columns(2)

Sections may be collapsible() to optionally hide content in long forms:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Section;
 
Section::make('Heading')
->schema([
// ...
])
->collapsible()

Your sections may be collapsed() by default:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Section;
 
Section::make('Heading')
->schema([
// ...
])
->collapsed()

When nesting sections, you can use a more compact styling:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Section;
 
Section::make('Heading')
->schema([
// ...
])
->compact()

Placeholder

Placeholders can be used to render text-only "fields" within your forms. Each placeholder has content(), which cannot be changed by the user.

use Filament\Forms\Components\Placeholder;
 
Placeholder::make('Label')
->content('Content, displayed underneath the label')

You may even render custom HTML within placeholder content:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Placeholder;
use Illuminate\Support\HtmlString;
 
Placeholder::make('Documentation')
->content(new HtmlString('<a href="https://filamentphp.com/docs">filamentphp.com</a>'))

Card

The card component may be used to render the form components inside a card:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Card;
 
Card::make()
->schema([
// ...
])

You may use the columns() method to easily create a grid within the card:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Card;
 
Card::make()
->schema([
// ...
])
->columns(2)

View

Aside from building custom layout components, you may create "view" components which allow you to create custom layouts without extra PHP classes.

use Filament\Forms\Components\View;
 
View::make('filament.forms.components.wizard')

Inside your view, you may render the component's schema() using the $getChildComponentContainer() closure:

<div>
{{ $getChildComponentContainer() }}
</div>

Building custom layout components

You may create your own custom component classes and views, which you can reuse across your project, and even release as a plugin to the community.

If you're just creating a simple custom component to use once, you could instead use a view component to render any custom Blade file.

To create a custom column class and view, you may use the following command:

php artisan make:form-layout Wizard

This will create the following layout component class:

use Filament\Forms\Components\Component;
 
class Wizard extends Component
{
protected string $view = 'filament.forms.components.wizard';
 
public static function make(): static
{
return new static();
}
}

Inside your view, you may render the component's schema() using the $getChildComponentContainer() closure:

<div>
{{ $getChildComponentContainer() }}
</div>
