ActionButton

Extends MoonShineComponent * has the same features

# Basics

When you need to add a button with a specific action, ActionButtons come to the rescue. In MoonShine they are already used - in forms, tables, on pages.

ActionButton::make(
Closure|string $label,
Closure|string|null $url = null,
mixed $item = null
)
  • label - button text,
  • url - URL of the button link,
  • item - optional button data available in closures.
use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
label: 'Button title',
url: 'https://moonshine-laravel.com',
)
];
}

Также доступен helper, который можно применить в blade:

<div>
{!! actionBtn('Click me', 'https://moonshine-laravel.com') !!}
</div>
Example

# Blank

The blank() method allows you to open a URL in a new window.

use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
label: fn() => 'Click me',
url: 'https://moonshine-laravel.com',
)
->blank()
];
}
Example

# Icon

The icon() method allows you to specify an icon for a button.

use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
label: fn() => 'Click me',
url: 'https://moonshine-laravel.com',
)
->icon('heroicons.outline.pencil')
];
}
Example

For more detailed information, please refer to the section Icons .

# Color

For ActionButton there is a set of methods that allow you to set the color of the button: primary(), secondary(), warning(), success() and error().

use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
label: 'Click me',
url: fn() => 'https://moonshine-laravel.com',
)
->primary()
];
}
Primary Secondary Warning Success Error

# onClick

The onClick method allows you to execute js code on click:

use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
label: 'Click me',
url: 'https://moonshine-laravel.com',
)
->onClick(fn() => "alert('Example')", 'prevent')
];
}
Example
Basics

To trigger a modal window when a button is clicked, use the inModal() method.

inModal(
Closure|string|null $title = null,
Closure|string|null $content = null,
array $buttons = [],
bool $async = false,
bool $wide = false,
bool $auto = false,
bool $closeOutside = false,
array $attributes = [],
bool $autoClose = true,
)
  • title - modal title,
  • content - modal content,
  • buttons - modal buttons,
  • async - async mode,
  • wide - maximum modal width,
  • auto - width of modal window by content,
  • closeOutside - close the modal window when clicking outside the window area,
  • attributes - additional attributes,
  • autoClose - auto close modal window after successful request.
use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
label: 'Click me',
url: 'https://moonshine-laravel.com',
)
->inModal(
title: fn() => 'Modal title',
content: fn() => 'Modal content',
buttons: [
ActionButton::make('Click me in modal', 'https://moonshine-laravel.com')
],
async: false
)
];
}

You can also open a modal window using the toggleModal method, and if the ActionButton is inside modal window then just openModal

use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
use MoonShine\Components\Modal;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
MoonShine\Components\Modal::make(
'Title',
fn() => 'Content',
)->name('my-modal')
 
ActionButton::make(
label: 'Open modal',
url: '#',
)->toggleModal('my-modal')
];
}
Async

If you need to load content into the modal window asynchronously, then switch the async parameter to true.

use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
label: 'Click me',
url: to_page('action_button', fragment: 'doc-content'),
)
->inModal(
title: fn() => 'Modal title',
async: true
)
];
}

About Fragment can be found in the "Components" section

# Confirm

The withConfirm() method allows you to create a button with confirmation of an action.

use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
label: 'Click me',
url: 'https://moonshine-laravel.com',
)
->withConfirm(
'Confirm modal title',
'Confirm modal content',
'Confirm modal button',
)
];
}

withConfirm does not work with async modes. For asynchronous mode, you need to make your own implementation via Modal or inModal() .

# Offcanvas

In order for offcanvas to be called when a button is clicked, use the inOffCanvas() method.

use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
label: 'Click me',
url: 'https://moonshine-laravel.com',
)
->inOffCanvas(
fn() => 'OffCanvas title',
fn() => form()->fields([Text::make('Text')]),
isLeft: false
)
];
}

# Group

If you need to build logic with several ActionButton, however, some should be hidden or displayed in a drop-down menu, in this case, use the ActionGroup component

use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
use MoonShine\Components\ActionGroup;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionGroup::make([
ActionButton::make('Button 1', '/')->canSee(fn() => false),
ActionButton::make('Button 2', '/', $model)->canSee(fn($model) => $model->active)
])
];
}
Display

Thanks to ActionGroup you can also change the display of buttons, display them in a line or in a drop-down menu to save space.

use MoonShine\ActionButtons\ActionButton;
use MoonShine\Components\ActionGroup;
 
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionGroup::make([
ActionButton::make('Button 1', '/')->showInLine(),
ActionButton::make('Button 2', '/')->showInDropdown()
])
];
}

# Bulk

The bulk() method allows you to create a bulk action button for a ModelResource.

public function indexButtons(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make('Link', '/endpoint')->bulk(),
];
}

The bulk() method, used only inside ModelResource.

# Async mode

The async() method allows you to implement asynchronous operation for the ActionButton.

async(
string $method = 'GET',
?string $selector = null,
array $events = []
?string $callback = null
)
  • $method - asynchronous request method;
  • $selector - selector of the element whose content will change;
  • $events - events raised after a successful request;
  • $callback - js callback function after receiving the response.
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
'Click me',
'/endpoint'
)
->async()
];
}
Notifications

If you need to display a notification or make a redirect after a click, then it is enough to implement the json response according to the structure:

{message: 'Toast', messageType: 'success', redirect: '/url'}

The redirect parameter is optional.

HTML content

If you need to replace an area with html on click, then you can return HTML content or json with the html key in the response:

{html: 'Html content'}
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
'Click me',
'/endpoint'
)
->async(selector: '#my-selector')
];
}
Events

After a successful request, you can raise events:

public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
'Click me',
'/endpoint'
)
->async(events: ['table-updated-index-table'])
];
}

For the table-updated-index-table event to work async mode must be enabled.

Callback

If you need to process the response in a different way, then you need to implement a handler function and specify it in the async() method.

public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make(
'Click me',
'/endpoint'
)
->async(callback: 'myFunction')
];
}
document.addEventListener("moonshine:init", () => {
MoonShine.onCallback('myFunction', function(response, element, events, component) {
if(response.confirmed === true) {
component.$dispatch('toast', {type: 'success', text: 'Success'})
} else {
component.$dispatch('toast', {type: 'error', text: 'Error'})
}
})
})

# Calling methods

method() allow you to specify the name of a method in a resource and call it asynchronously when you click on it ActionButton without having to create additional controllers.

method(
string $method,
array|Closure $params = [],
?string $message = null,
?string $selector = null,
array $events = [],
string|AsyncCallback|null $callback = null,
?Page $page = null,
?ResourceContract $resource = null
)
  • $method - name of the method
  • $params - parameters for the request,
  • $message - messages
  • $selector - selector of the element whose content will change
  • $events - events to be called after a successful request,
  • $callback - js callback function after receiving a response
  • $page - page containing the method
  • $resource - resource containing the method.
public function components(): array
{
return [
ActionButton::make('Click me')
->method('updateSomething'),
];
}
// With toast
public function updateSomething(MoonShineRequest $request)
{
// $request->getResource();
// $request->getResource()->getItem();
// $request->getPage();
 
MoonShineUI::toast('MyMessage', 'success');
 
return back();
}
 
// Exception
public function updateSomething(MoonShineRequest $request)
{
throw new \Exception('My message');
}
 
// Custom json response
public function updateSomething(MoonShineRequest $request)
{
return MoonShineJsonResponse::make()->toast('MyMessage', ToastType::SUCCESS);
}

Methods called via ActionButton in a resource must be public!

Для доступа к данным из реквеста, необходимо передать их в параметрах.

Передача текущего элемента

Если в запросе присутствует resourceItem, то в ресурсе вы можете получить доступ к текущему элементу через метод getItem().

  • When there is a model in the data and the button is created in the buttons() method TableBuilder , CardsBuilder or FormBuilder , then it is automatically filled with data and the parameters will contain resourceItem.
  • When the button is on the ModelResource form page, you can pass the id of the current element.
    ActionButton::make('Click me')
    ->method(
    'updateSomething',
    params: ['resourceItem' => $this->getResource()->getItemID()]
    )
  • When the button is in the ModelResource index table, you need to use a closure.
    ActionButton::make('Click me')
    ->method(
    'updateSomething',
    params: fn($item) => ['resourceItem' => $item->getKey()]
    )
Download

The called method can return BinaryFileResponse, which allows you to download a file.

ActionButton::make('Download')->method('download')
public function download(): BinaryFileResponse
{
// ...
 
return response()->download($file);
}

# Dispatch events

To dispatch javascript events, you can use the dispatchEvent() method.

dispatchEvent(array|string $events)
ActionButton::make('Refresh', '#')
->dispatchEvent(AlpineJs::event(JsEvent::TABLE_UPDATED, 'index-table')),
