laravel-livewire-add-more-input-field-example

 

Step 1 : Install Laravel 8

In this first step we need to get fresh Laravel 8 version application using bellow command, So open your terminal OR command prompt and run bellow command:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

 

Step 2 : Create  Model & Migration

Now in this second step, we need create database migration for files table and also we will create model for files table.

php artisan make:migration create_contacts_table

 

database/migrations

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
  
class CreateContactcTable extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('contacts', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->id();
            $table->string('name');
            $table->string('phone');
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }
  
    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down()
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('contacts');
    }
}

 

Now run below command to create table in database.

php artisan migrate

 

Now in this step we will create Contact model by using following command:

php artisan make:model Contact

 

App/Models/Contact.php

namespace App\Models;
  
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
  
class Contact extends Model
{
    use HasFactory;
  
    protected $fillable = [
        'name', 'phone'
    ];
}

Step 3: Install Livewire

Now in this step, we will simply install livewire to our laravel 8 application using bellow command to create add more input field dynamically.

composer require livewire/livewire

 

Step 4: Create Component

Now here we will create livewire component using livewire own command. so run bellow command to create add more component in Laravel 8.

php artisan make:livewire contacts

 

Now they created fies on both path:

File
app/Http/Livewire/Contacts.php
resources/views/livewire/contacts.blade.php

 

Now both file we have to update as bellow for our contact us form.

app/Http/Livewire/Contacts.php

namespace App\Http\Livewire;
  
use Livewire\Component;
use App\Models\Contact;
use App\Http\Livewire\Field;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
  
class Contacts extends Component
{
    public $contacts, $name, $phone, $contact_id;
    public $updateMode = false;
    public $inputs = [];
    public $i = 1;
      
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function add($i)
    {
        $i = $i + 1;
        $this->i = $i;
        array_push($this->inputs ,$i);
    }
      
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function remove($i)
    {
        unset($this->inputs[$i]);
    }
      
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function render()
    {
        $this->contacts = Contact::all();
        return view('livewire.contacts');
    }
      
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    private function resetInputFields(){
        $this->name = '';
        $this->phone = '';
    }
      
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function store()
    {
        $validatedDate = $this->validate([
                'name.0' => 'required',
                'phone.0' => 'required',
                'name.*' => 'required',
                'phone.*' => 'required',
            ],
            [
                'name.0.required' => 'name field is required',
                'phone.0.required' => 'phone field is required',
                'name.*.required' => 'name field is required',
                'phone.*.required' => 'phone field is required',
            ]
        );
   
        foreach ($this->name as $key => $value) {
            Contact::create(['name' => $this->name[$key], 'phone' => $this->phone[$key]]);
        }
  
        $this->inputs = [];
   
        $this->resetInputFields();
   
        session()->flash('message', 'Contact Has Been Created Successfully.');
    }
}

 

resources/views/livewire/file-upload.blade.php

 

Step 5: Create Route

Now almost everything are set to go, But now we will create one route for calling our example, so let's add new route to web.php file as bellow:

routes/web.php

Route::get('contacts', function () {
    return view('default');
});

 

Step 6: Create View File

here, we will create blade file for call form route. in this file we will use @livewireStyles, @livewireScripts and @livewire('contact-form'). so let's add it.

resources/views/default.blade.php

 

Now you can test it using bellow command:

php artisan serve
