Getting started

Columns

Column classes can be found in the Filament\Tables\Columns namespace.

If you're using the columns in a Livewire component, you can put them in the getTableColumns() method:

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

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

public static function table(Table $table): Table
{
return $table
->columns([
// ...
]);
}

Columns may be created using the static make() method, passing its name. The name of the column should correspond to a column or accessor on your model. You may use "dot syntax" to access columns within relationships.

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')
 
TextColumn::make('author.name')

Available columns

Filament ships with two main types of columns - static and editable.

Static columns display data to the user:

Editable columns allow the user to update data in the database without leaving the table:

You may also create your own custom columns to display data however you wish.

Setting a label

By default, the label of the column, which is displayed in the header of the table, is generated from the name of the column. You may customize this using the label() method:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')->label('Post title')

Optionally, you can have the label automatically translated by using the translateLabel() method:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')->translateLabel() // Equivalent to `label(__('Title'))`

Sorting

Columns may be sortable, by clicking on the column label. To make a column sortable, you must use the sortable() method:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')->sortable()

If you're using an accessor column, you may pass sortable() an array of database columns to sort by:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('full_name')->sortable(['first_name', 'last_name'])

You may customize how the sorting is applied to the Eloquent query using a callback:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Builder;
 
TextColumn::make('full_name')
->sortable(query: function (Builder $query, string $direction): Builder {
return $query
->orderBy('last_name', $direction)
->orderBy('first_name', $direction);
})

If a column is sortable(), you may choose to sort it by default using the getDefaultTableSortColumn() and getDefaultTableSortDirection() methods:

protected function getDefaultTableSortColumn(): ?string
{
return 'full_name';
}
 
protected function getDefaultTableSortDirection(): ?string
{
return 'asc';
}

Searching

Columns may be searchable, by using the text input in the top right of the table. To make a column searchable, you must use the searchable() method:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')->searchable()

If you're using an accessor column, you may pass searchable() an array of database columns to search within:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('full_name')->searchable(['first_name', 'last_name'])

You may customize how the search is applied to the Eloquent query using a callback:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Builder;
 
TextColumn::make('full_name')
->searchable(query: function (Builder $query, string $search): Builder {
return $query
->where('first_name', 'like', "%{$search}%")
->where('last_name', 'like', "%{$search}%");
})

Searching individually

You can choose to enable a per-column search input using the isIndividual parameter:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')->searchable(isIndividual: true)

If you use the isIndividual parameter, you may still search that column using the main "global" search input for the entire table.

To disable that functionality while still preserving the individual search functionality, you need the isGlobal parameter:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')->searchable(isIndividual: true, isGlobal: false)

You may optionally persist the searches in the query string:

protected $queryString = [
// ...
'tableColumnSearchQueries',
];

Persist search in session

To persist the table or individual column search in the user's session, override the shouldPersistTableSearchInSession() or shouldPersistTableColumnSearchInSession() method on the Livewire component:

protected function shouldPersistTableSearchInSession(): bool
{
return true;
}
 
protected function shouldPersistTableColumnSearchInSession(): bool
{
return true;
}

Cell actions and URLs

When a cell is clicked, you may run an "action", or open a URL.

Running actions

To run an action, you may use the action() method, passing a callback or the name of a Livewire method to run. Each method accepts a $record parameter which you may use to customize the behaviour of the action:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')
->action(function (Post $record): void {
$this->dispatchBrowserEvent('open-post-edit-modal', [
'post' => $record->getKey(),
]);
})

Action modals

You may open action modals by passing in an Action object to the action() method:

use Filament\Tables\Actions\Action;
use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')
->action(
Action::make('select')
->requiresConfirmation()
->action(function (Post $record): void {
$this->dispatchBrowserEvent('select-post', [
'post' => $record->getKey(),
]);
}),
)

Action objects passed into the action() method must have a unique name to distinguish it from other actions within the table.

Opening URLs

To open a URL, you may use the url() method, passing a callback or static URL to open. Callbacks accept a $record parameter which you may use to customize the URL:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')
->url(fn (Post $record): string => route('posts.edit', ['post' => $record]))

You may also choose to open the URL in a new tab:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')
->url(fn (Post $record): string => route('posts.edit', ['post' => $record]))
->openUrlInNewTab()

Setting a default value

To set a default value for fields with a null state, you may use the default() method:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')->default('Untitled')

Hiding columns

To hide a column conditionally, you may use the hidden() and visible() methods, whichever you prefer:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('role')->hidden(! auth()->user()->isAdmin())
// or
TextColumn::make('role')->visible(auth()->user()->isAdmin())

Toggling column visibility

Users may hide or show columns themselves in the table. To make a column toggleable, use the toggleable() method:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('id')->toggleable()

By default, toggleable columns are visible. To make them hidden instead:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('id')->toggleable(isToggledHiddenByDefault: true)

Calculated state

Sometimes you need to calculate the state of a column, instead of directly reading it from a database column.

By passing a callback function to the getStateUsing() method, you can customize the returned state for that column based on the $record:

Tables\Columns\TextColumn::make('amount_including_vat')
->getStateUsing(function (Model $record): float {
return $record->amount * (1 + $record->vat_rate);
})

Tooltips

If you want to use tooltips outside of the admin panel, make sure you have @ryangjchandler/alpine-tooltip installed in your app, including tippy.css. You'll also need to install tippy.css if you're using a custom admin theme.

You may specify a tooltip to display when you hover over a cell:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('title')
->tooltip('Title')

This method also accepts a closure that can access the current table record:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
 
TextColumn::make('title')
->tooltip(fn (Model $record): string => "By {$record->author->name}")

Custom attributes

The HTML of columns can be customized, by passing an array of extraAttributes():

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('slug')->extraAttributes(['class' => 'bg-gray-200'])

These get merged onto the outer <div> element of each cell in that column.

Global settings

If you wish to change the default behaviour of all columns 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 columns using. For example, if you wish to make all columns sortable() and toggleable(), you can do it like so:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\Column;
 
Column::configureUsing(function (Column $column): void {
$column
->toggleable()
->sortable();
});

Additionally, you can call this code on specific column types as well:

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::configureUsing(function (TextColumn $column): void {
$column
->toggleable()
->sortable();
});

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

use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
 
TextColumn::make('name')->toggleable(false)
