Table Builder

Adding a table to a Livewire component

Setting up the Livewire component

First, generate a new Livewire component:

php artisan make:livewire ListProducts

Then, render your Livewire component on the page:


Alternatively, you can use a full-page Livewire component:

use App\Livewire\ListProducts;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
Route::get('products', ListProducts::class);

Adding the table

There are 3 tasks when adding a table to a Livewire component class:

  1. Implement the HasTable and HasForms interfaces, and use the InteractsWithTable and InteractsWithForms traits.
  2. Add a table() method, which is where you configure the table. Add the table's columns, filters, and actions.
  3. Make sure to define the base query that will be used to fetch rows in the table. For example, if you're listing products from your Product model, you will want to return Product::query().
namespace App\Livewire;
use App\Models\Shop\Product;
use Filament\Forms\Concerns\InteractsWithForms;
use Filament\Forms\Contracts\HasForms;
use Filament\Tables\Columns\TextColumn;
use Filament\Tables\Concerns\InteractsWithTable;
use Filament\Tables\Contracts\HasTable;
use Filament\Tables\Table;
use Illuminate\Contracts\View\View;
use Livewire\Component;
class ListProducts extends Component implements HasForms, HasTable
use InteractsWithTable;
use InteractsWithForms;
public function table(Table $table): Table
return $table
// ...
// ...
// ...
public function render(): View
return view('livewire.list-products');

Finally, in your Livewire component's view, render the table:

{{ $this->table }}

Visit your Livewire component in the browser, and you should see the table.

Building a table for an Eloquent relationship

If you want to build a table for an Eloquent relationship, you can use the relationship() and inverseRelationship() methods on the $table instead of passing a query(). HasMany, HasManyThrough, BelongsToMany, MorphMany and MorphToMany relationships are compatible:

use App\Models\Category;
use Filament\Tables\Table;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Relations\BelongsToMany;
public Category $category;
public function table(Table $table): Table
return $table
->relationship(fn (): BelongsToMany => $this->category->products())

In this example, we have a $category property which holds a Category model instance. The category has a relationship named products. We use a function to return the relationship instance. This is a many-to-many relationship, so the inverse relationship is called categories, and is defined on the Product model. We just need to pass the name of this relationship to the inverseRelationship() method, not the whole instance.

Now that the table is using a relationship instead of a plain Eloquent query, all actions will be performed on the relationship instead of the query. For example, if you use a CreateAction, the new product will be automatically attached to the category.

If your relationship uses a pivot table, you can use all pivot columns as if they were normal columns on your table, as long as they are listed in the withPivot() method of the relationship and inverse relationship definition.

Relationship tables are used in the Panel Builder as "relation managers". Most of the documented features for relation managers are also available for relationship tables. For instance, attaching and detaching and associating and dissociating actions.

Generating table Livewire components with the CLI

It's advised that you learn how to set up a Livewire component with the Table Builder manually, but once you are confident, you can use the CLI to generate a table for you.

php artisan make:livewire-table Products/ListProducts

This will ask you for the name of a prebuilt model, for example Product. Finally, it will generate a new app/Livewire/Products/ListProducts.php component, which you can customize.

Automatically generating table columns

Filament is also able to guess which table columns you want in the table, based on the model's database columns. You can use the --generate flag when generating your table:

php artisan make:livewire-table Products/ListProducts --generate
