Dynamic Field Hints for Backpack 4

This package extends the Backpack for Laravel CrudPanel providing the ability to dynamically set the 'hint' value for its CRUD fields by pulling the "comment" for the related column in the database if it exists.


  • hints are only set if the method is called
  • hints are only set if the column in the db has a Comment
  • hints are not set if a hint already exists on the field
  • hints are not set if "hint" on the field is set to an empty string


Via Composer

composer require dodsoftware/dynamic-field-hints-for-backpack

If you've disabled Laravel's auto package discovery, you'll need to also add the below to your app's config/app.php file

'providers' => [
    // ...


Inside your custom CrudController:


Supported Databases

  • MySQL 5.6+
  • PostgreSQL 9.4+
  • SQL Server 2017+
