Toggle Field for Backpack 4 & 5

Latest Version on Packagist Total Downloads

Warning This field is not compatible with CRUD JS API since it is a non-JS solution. Check this answer until we provide a built-in solution in Backpack that can be used to replace this one.

This package provides a toggle field type for the Backpack for Laravel administration panel. The toggle field allows admins to toggle the value of a boolean variable between true/false, in a prettier way. It uses a CSS-only solution, so it has zero external dependencies and zero javascript.

This package has been created to make it easy for developers to share their custom fields with the Backpack community. You can use this package to get the toggle field type, sure. But you can also fork it, to create a Backpack addon. For more information on how to do this, check out Backpack's addon docs.

Backpack Toggle Field Addon

Installation

Via Composer

composer require digitallyhappy/toggle-field-for-backpack

Usage

Inside your custom CrudController:

$this->crud->addField([
    'name' => 'agreed',
    'label' => 'I agree to the terms and conditions',
    'type' => 'toggle',
    'view_namespace' => 'toggle-field-for-backpack::fields',
]);

Notice the view_namespace attribute - make sure that is exactly as above, to tell Backpack to load the field from this addon package, instead of assuming it's inside the Backpack\CRUD package.

Overwriting

If you need to change the field in any way, you can easily publish the file to your app, and modify that file any way you want. But please keep in mind that you will not be getting any updates.

Step 1. Copy-paste the blade file to your directory:

# create the fields directory if it's not already there
mkdir -p resources/views/vendor/backpack/crud/fields

# copy the blade file inside the folder we created above
cp -i vendor/digitallyhappy/toggle-field-for-backpack/src/resources/views/fields/toggle.blade.php resources/views/vendor/backpack/crud/fields/toggle.blade.php

Step 2. Remove the vendor namespace wherever you've used the field:

$this->crud->addField([
    'name' => 'agreed',
    'type' => 'toggle',
    'label' => 'I agree to the terms and conditions',
-   'view_namespace' => 'toggle-field-for-backpack::fields'
]);

Step 3. Uninstall this package. Since it only provides one file - toggle.blade.php, and you're no longer using that file, it makes no sense to have the package installed:

composer remove digitallyhappy/toggle-field-for-backpack
