Here we will see how to create a draggable menu button for laravel backend. It works because of the laravel-admin package. This draggable menu saved in database.

Make sure you have installed laravel admin package using the belowthree commands

composer require encore/laravel-admin:1.*
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Encore\Admin\AdminServiceProvider"
php artisan admin:install

After that make sure that you have migration files


use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

return new class extends Migration
     * Run the migrations.
    public function up(): void
        Schema::create('course_types', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->string('title', 50);

     * Reverse the migrations.
    public function down(): void

Go ahead and run the command and create the database table

php artisan migrate

And then make sure that you create a model using the below command

php artisan make:model CourseType

And then create a controller using the below command

php artisan make:controller ../../Admin/Controllers/CourseTypeController

So now we have a table, a model and a controller.

CourseType model


namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
use Encore\Admin\Traits\ModelTree;

class CourseType extends Model
    use HasFactory;
    use ModelTree;

CourseTypeController controller


namespace App\Admin\Controllers;

use App\Models\User;
use App\Models\CourseType;
use Encore\Admin\Controllers\AdminController;
use Encore\Admin\Form;
use Encore\Admin\Grid;
use Encore\Admin\Show;
use Encore\Admin\Layout\Content;
use Encore\Admin\Tree;

class CourseTypeController extends AdminController

    //actually for showing tree form of the menus
    public function index(Content $content){
        $tree = new Tree(new CourseType);
        return $content->header('Course Types')

    //for view
    protected function detail($id)

        $show = new Show(CourseType::findOrFail($id));

        $show->field('id', __('Id'));
        $show->field('title', __('Category'));
        $show->field('description', __('Description'));
        $show->field('order', __("Order"));
        $show->field('created_at', __('Created at'));
        $show->field('updated_at', __('Updated at'));

        return $show;

    //creating and editing
    protected function form()

        $form = new Form(new CourseType());

        $form->select('parent_id', __('Parent Category'))
        ->options((new CourseType())::selectOptions());

        $form->text('title', __('Title')); //text is similar to string in laravel
        $form->textarea('description', __('Description')); //textarea is similar to text
        $form->number('Order', __('Order')); //number is similar to int

        return $form;

Now make sure in your routes.php file which is inside Admin folder you add the below line

  $router->resource('/course-types', CourseTypeController::class);

Now make sure, in the menu you add a link like below
