Route Field

Introduction

A route picker field that lets you select routes from a predefined collection.

Usage

The route field requires the name of the collection that should be used for this field. Additionally a title is required.

$form->route('route')
    ->collection('app')
    ->title('Picke a Url');

Route Collection

To be able to select routes in your route field you must first register a route collection in a service provider. The registered collection can then be used again and again in different places. The following example registers a collection with the name app.

use Ignite\Crud\Fields\Route;

Route::register('app', function($collection) {
    // Define your route collection in here.
});

Add Route

The selectable routes are configured in the closure using the route method. The first parameter is the title that represents the route followed by an idendifier and a function that returns the actual route.

$collection->route('Home', 'home', function() {
    return route('home');
});

Use the arrow function short cut:

$collection->route('Home', 'home', fn($locale) => route('home'));

Add Group

You can group routes for example into model show routes.

$collection->group('Articles', function($group) {
    $articles = Article::all();

    foreach($articles as $article) {
        $group->route($article->title, $article->id, function() use ($article) {
            return route('articles.show', $article->id));
        });
    }
});

Localization

The closure in which the route is returned is given the current locale as parameter.

$collection->route('Home', 'home' function($locale) {
    return route("{$locale}.home");
});

Prepare Model

If the route field is used in Models the route cast must be specified:

use Ignite\Crud\Casts\Route;

$casts = [
    'route' => Route::class
];

Frontend

You can output the value of your route directly in Blade, for example in the href attribute like this:

<a href="{{ $model->route }}">My Link</a>

You can check if the route is active:

@if($model->route->isActive())
    Hello World!
@endif

You may use the isActive method to add optional classes to your link:

<a
    href="{{ $model->route }}"
    class="$model->route->isActive('active-class')"
>
    My Link
</a>
