Alright, let’s dive into the steps.

In this example, i will give you step by step example of how to create multi step form in laravel application. you may require to create multi step form wizard then this link will help you.

Here, we will create "products" table with some fields. i will create product page with three wizard step. In this last step, you can review of product details, then after you can create your product.

Let's see bellow preview and follow bellow step.

Preview:

Step 1: Install Laravel

In this step, if you haven't laravel application setup then we have to get fresh laravel 7 application. So run bellow command and get clean fresh laravel 7 application.

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

Step 2: Product Create Migration and Model

Here, we need create database migration for products table and also we will create model for Product table.

php artisan make:migration create_products_table

Migration:

<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;

use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class CreateProductsTable extends Migration

{

/**

* Run the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function up()

{

Schema::create('products', function (Blueprint $table) {

$table->id();

$table->string('name')->nullable();

$table->longText('description')->nullable();

$table->float('amount')->nullable();

$table->boolean('status')->default(0);

$table->integer('stock')->default(0);

$table->timestamps();

});

}

/**

* Reverse the migrations.

*

* @return void

*/

public function down()

{

Schema::dropIfExists('products');

}

}

php artisan migrate

now we will create Product model by using following command:

php artisan make:model Product

App/Product.php

<?php

namespace App;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Product extends Model

{

/**

* The attributes that are mass assignable.

*

* @var array

*/

protected $fillable = [

'name', 'amount', 'description', 'status', 'stock'

];

}

Step 3: Create Routes

Here, we need to add routes for products listing and all step of creating form. so open your "routes/web.php" file and add following route.

routes/web.php

Route::get('products', 'ProductController@index')->name('products.index');

Route::get('products/create-step-one', 'ProductController@createStepOne')->name('products.create.step.one');

Route::post('products/create-step-one', 'ProductController@postCreateStepOne')->name('products.create.step.one.post');

Route::get('products/create-step-two', 'ProductController@createStepTwo')->name('products.create.step.two');

Route::post('products/create-step-two', 'ProductController@postCreateStepTwo')->name('products.create.step.two.post');

Route::get('products/create-step-three', 'ProductController@createStepThree')->name('products.create.step.three');

Route::post('products/create-step-three', 'ProductController@postCreateStepThree')->name('products.create.step.three.post');

Step 4: Create ProductController

In this step, now we should create new controller as ProductController. So run bellow command and create new controller. add following code for adding all methods to that controller.

php artisan make:controller ProductController

app/Http/Controllers/ProductController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Product;

class ProductController extends Controller

{

/**

* Display a listing of the prducts.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function index()

{

$products = Product::all();

return view('products.index',compact('products'));

}

/**

* Show the step One Form for creating a new product.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function createStepOne(Request $request)

{

$product = $request->session()->get('product');

return view('products.create-step-one',compact('product'));

}

/**

* Post Request to store step1 info in session

*

* @param \Illuminate\Http\Request $request

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function postCreateStepOne(Request $request)

{

$validatedData = $request->validate([

'name' => 'required|unique:products',

'amount' => 'required|numeric',

'description' => 'required',

]);

if(empty($request->session()->get('product'))){

$product = new Product();

$product->fill($validatedData);

$request->session()->put('product', $product);

}else{

$product = $request->session()->get('product');

$product->fill($validatedData);

$request->session()->put('product', $product);

}

return redirect()->route('products.create.step.two');

}

/**

* Show the step One Form for creating a new product.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function createStepTwo(Request $request)

{

$product = $request->session()->get('product');

return view('products.create-step-two',compact('product'));

}

/**

* Show the step One Form for creating a new product.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function postCreateStepTwo(Request $request)

{

$validatedData = $request->validate([

'stock' => 'required',

'status' => 'required',

]);

$product = $request->session()->get('product');

$product->fill($validatedData);

$request->session()->put('product', $product);

return redirect()->route('products.create.step.three');

}

/**

* Show the step One Form for creating a new product.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function createStepThree(Request $request)

{

$product = $request->session()->get('product');

return view('products.create-step-three',compact('product'));

}

/**

* Show the step One Form for creating a new product.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function postCreateStepThree(Request $request)

{

$product = $request->session()->get('product');

$product->save();

$request->session()->forget('product');

return redirect()->route('products.index');

}

}

Step 5: Add Blade Files

In last step. In this step we have to create just blade files. So mainly we have to create layout file and then create new folder "products" then create blade files of crud app. So finally you have to create following bellow blade file:

1) default.blade.php

2) index.blade.php

3) create-step-one.blade.php

4) create-step-two.blade.php

5) create-step-three.blade.php
