Laravel Livewire Tables Documentation

This is the documentation for v2. You can switch versions in the menu at the top. Check your current version with the following command:

composer show rappasoft/laravel-livewire-tables

Configurable Areas

There are certain areas of the datatable as of v2.3 where you can include your own view files. This is good for adding additional functionality to the toolbar, for example.

Available Methods


You can use the setConfigurableAreas method to set the areas that you want to be configurable.

public function configure(): void
    'toolbar-left-start' => '',
    'toolbar-left-end' => '',
    'toolbar-right-start' => '',
    'toolbar-right-end' => '',
    'before-toolbar' => '',
    'after-toolbar' => '',
    'before-pagination' => '',
    'after-pagination' => '',

Note: Only specify the keys you are actually implementing, otherwise you may get uneven spacing.


Defaults to true, set whether or not configurable areas are hidden during reordering.

public function configure(): void


Hide configurable areas when reordering.

public function configure(): void
  // Shorthand for $this->setHideConfigurableAreasWhenReorderingStatus(true)


Show configurable areas when reordering.

public function configure(): void
  // Shorthand for $this->setHideConfigurableAreasWhenReorderingStatus(false)

Passing Parameters

You can pass parameters to configurable areas that come from your mount method or any other service by proving an array:

public function configure(): void
        'toolbar-left-start' => [
            '', [
                'param1' => $this->user_id,
                'param2' => resolve(MyService::class)->getThing($this->user_id),

Example View

Example dropdown for the toolbar:


    $theme = $component->getTheme();

@if ($theme === 'tailwind')
    <div class="w-full mb-4 md:w-auto md:mb-0">
            x-data="{ open: false }"
            @keydown.window.escape="open = false"
            x-on:click.away="open = false"
            class="relative z-10 inline-block w-full text-left md:w-auto"
            wire:key="my-dropdown-button-{{ $component->getTableName() }}"
                <span class="rounded-md shadow-sm">
                        x-on:click="open = !open"
