Viewing records

Creating a resource with a View page

To create a new resource with a View page, you can use the --view flag:

php artisan make:filament-resource User --view

Using an infolist instead of a disabled form

By default, the View page will display a disabled form with the record's data. If you preferred to display the record's data in an "infolist", you can use define an infolist() method on the resource class:

use Filament\Infolists;
use Filament\Infolists\Infolist;
public static function infolist(Infolist $infolist): Infolist
return $infolist

The schema() method is used to define the structure of your infolist. It is an array of entries and layout components, in the order they should appear in your infolist.

Check out the Infolists docs for a guide on how to build infolists with Filament.

Adding a View page to an existing resource

If you want to add a View page to an existing resource, create a new page in your resource's Pages directory:

php artisan make:filament-page ViewUser --resource=UserResource --type=ViewRecord

You must register this new page in your resource's getPages() method:

public static function getPages(): array
return [
'index' => Pages\ListUsers::route('/'),
'create' => Pages\CreateUser::route('/create'),
'view' => Pages\ViewUser::route('/{record}'),
'edit' => Pages\EditUser::route('/{record}/edit'),

Viewing records in modals

If your resource is simple, you may wish to view records in modals rather than on the View page. If this is the case, you can just delete the view page.

If your resource doesn't contain a ViewAction, you can add one to the $table->actions() array:

use Filament\Tables;
use Filament\Tables\Table;
public static function table(Table $table): Table
return $table
// ...
// ...

Customizing data before filling the form

You may wish to modify the data from a record before it is filled into the form. To do this, you may define a mutateFormDataBeforeFill() method on the View page class to modify the $data array, and return the modified version before it is filled into the form:

protected function mutateFormDataBeforeFill(array $data): array
$data['user_id'] = auth()->id();
return $data;

Alternatively, if you're viewing records in a modal action, check out the Actions documentation.


For authorization, Filament will observe any model policies that are registered in your app.

Users may access the View page if the view() method of the model policy returns true.

Custom view

For further customization opportunities, you can override the static $view property on the page class to a custom view in your app:

protected static string $view = 'filament.resources.users.pages.view-user';

This assumes that you have created a view at resources/views/filament/resources/users/pages/view-user.blade.php.

Here's a basic example of what that view might contain:

@if ($this->hasInfolist())
{{ $this->infolist }}
{{ $this->form }}
@if (count($relationManagers = $this->getRelationManagers()))

To see everything that the default view contains, you can check the vendor/filament/filament/resources/views/resources/pages/view-record.blade.php file in your project.
