Edit

<Edit> provides us a layout for displaying the page. It does not contain any logic but adds extra functionalities like a refresh button.

We will show what <Edit> does using properties with examples.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
interface IPost {
id: number;
title: string;
content: string;
status: "published" | "draft" | "rejected";
category: { id: number };
}

import { Edit, useForm, useSelect } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Form, Input, Select } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const { formProps, saveButtonProps, queryResult } = useForm<IPost>({
warnWhenUnsavedChanges: true,
});

const postData = queryResult?.data?.data;
const { selectProps: categorySelectProps } = useSelect<ICategory>({
resource: "categories",
defaultValue: postData?.category.id,
});

return (
<Edit saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}>
<Form {...formProps} layout="vertical">
<Form.Item
label="Title"
name="title"
rules={[
{
required: true,
},
]}
>
<Input />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item
label="Category"
name={["category", "id"]}
rules={[
{
required: true,
},
]}
>
<Select {...categorySelectProps} />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item
label="Status"
name="status"
rules={[
{
required: true,
},
]}
>
<Select
options={[
{
label: "Published",
value: "published",
},
{
label: "Draft",
value: "draft",
},
{
label: "Rejected",
value: "rejected",
},
]}
/>
</Form.Item>
</Form>
</Edit>
);
};
Swizzle

You can swizzle this component to customize it with the refine CLI

Properties​

title​

title allows you to add a title inside the <Edit> component. If you don't pass title props, it uses the "Edit" prefix and the singular resource name by default. For example, for the "posts" resource, it will be "Edit post".

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit title="Custom Title">
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

saveButtonProps​

The <Edit> component has a save button that submits the form by default. If you want to customize this button you can use the saveButtonProps property:

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit saveButtonProps={{ size: "small" }}>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the <SaveButton> documentation β†’

canDelete and deleteButtonProps​

canDelete allows you to add a delete button inside the <Edit> component. This button uses the useDelete method provided by the dataProvider

If you want to customize this button you can use the deleteButtonProps property like the code below.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { usePermissions } from "@refinedev/core";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const { data: permissionsData } = usePermissions();
return (
<Edit
canDelete={permissionsData?.includes("admin")}
deleteButtonProps={{ size: "small" }}
saveButtonProps={{ size: "small" }}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the <DeleteButton> documentation β†’

For more information, refer to the usePermission documentation β†’

resource​

The <Edit> component reads the resource information from the route by default. If you want to use a custom resource for the <Edit> component, you can use the resource prop:

localhost:3000/custom/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";

const CustomPage: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit resource="posts">
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

If you have multiple resources with the same name, you can pass the identifier instead of the name of the resource. It will only be used as the main matching key for the resource, data provider methods will still work with the name of the resource defined in the <Refine/> component.

For more information, refer to the identifier section of the <Refine/> component documentation β†’

recordItemId​

The <Edit> component reads the id information from the route by default. When it cannot be read from the URL, which happens when it's used on a custom page, modal or drawer, recordItemId is used.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit, useModalForm } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Modal, Button } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const { modalProps, id, show } = useModalForm({
action: "edit",
});

return (
<div>
<Button onClick={() => show()}>Edit Button</Button>
<Modal {...modalProps}>
<Edit recordItemId={id}>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
</Modal>
</div>
);
};
NOTE

The <Edit> component needs the id information for the <RefreshButton> to work properly.

mutationMode​

Determines which mode mutation will have while executing <DeleteButton> .

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
interface IPost {
id: number;
title: string;
content: string;
status: "published" | "draft" | "rejected";
category: { id: number };
}

import { Edit, useForm, useSelect } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Form, Input, Select } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const { formProps, saveButtonProps, queryResult } = useForm<IPost>({
warnWhenUnsavedChanges: true,
});

const postData = queryResult?.data?.data;
const { selectProps: categorySelectProps } = useSelect<ICategory>({
resource: "categories",
defaultValue: postData?.category.id,
});

return (
<Edit
mutationMode="undoable"
canDelete
saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}
>
<Form {...formProps} layout="vertical">
<Form.Item
label="Title"
name="title"
rules={[
{
required: true,
},
]}
>
<Input />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item
label="Category"
name={["category", "id"]}
rules={[
{
required: true,
},
]}
>
<Select {...categorySelectProps} />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item
label="Status"
name="status"
rules={[
{
required: true,
},
]}
>
<Select
options={[
{
label: "Published",
value: "published",
},
{
label: "Draft",
value: "draft",
},
{
label: "Rejected",
value: "rejected",
},
]}
/>
</Form.Item>
</Form>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the mutation mode documentation β†’

dataProviderName​

If not specified, refine will use the default data provider. If you have multiple data providers, you can use the dataProviderName property to specify which one you want to use:

import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import dataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";

import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";

const PostEdit = () => {
return <Edit dataProviderName="other">...</Edit>;
};

export const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Refine
dataProvider={{
default: dataProvider("https://api.fake-rest.refine.dev/"),
other: dataProvider("https://other-api.fake-rest.refine.dev/"),
}}
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
);
};

goBack​

To customize the back button or to disable it, you can use the goBack property:

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const BackButton = () => <Button>←</Button>;
return (
<Edit goBack={<BackButton />}>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};
CAUTION

If your route has no :action parameter or your action is list, the back button will not be shown even if you pass a goBack property. You can override this behavior by using the headerProps property:

import { useBack } from "@refinedev/core";
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const back = useBack();
const BackButton = () => <Button>←</Button>;

return (
<Edit goBack={<BackButton />} headerProps={{ onBack: back }}>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

isLoading​

To toggle the loading state of the <Edit/> component, you can use the isLoading property:

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit isLoading={true}>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

To customize or disable the breadcrumb, you can use the breadcrumb property. By default the Breadcrumb component from the @refinedev/antd package is used for breadcrumbs.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit, Breadcrumb } from "@refinedev/antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
breadcrumb={
<div
style={{
padding: "3px 6px",
border: "2px dashed cornflowerblue",
}}
>
<Breadcrumb />
</div>
}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};
TIP

This feature can be managed globally via the <Refine> component's options

For more information, refer to the Breadcrumb documentation β†’

wrapperProps​

You can use the wrapperProps property if you want to customize the wrapper of the <Edit/> component. The @refinedev/antd wrapper elements are simply <div/>s and wrapperProps and can get every attribute that <div/> can get.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
wrapperProps={{
style: {
backgroundColor: "cornflowerblue",
padding: "16px",
},
}}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

headerProps​

You can use the headerProps property to customize the header of the <Edit/> component:

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
headerProps={{
subTitle: "This is a subtitle",
style: {
backgroundColor: "cornflowerblue",
padding: "16px",
},
}}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the PageHeader documentation β†’

contentProps​

You can use the contentProps property to customize the content of the <Edit/> component:

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
contentProps={{
style: {
backgroundColor: "cornflowerblue",
padding: "16px",
},
}}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the Card documentation β†’

headerButtons​

By default, the <Edit/> component has a <ListButton> and a <RefreshButton> at the header.

You can customize the buttons at the header by using the headerButtons property. It accepts React.ReactNode or a render function ({ defaultButtons, refreshButtonProps, listButtonProps }) => React.ReactNode which you can use to keep the existing buttons and add your own.

CAUTION

If the "list" resource is not defined, the <ListButton> will not render and listButtonProps will be undefined.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

Or, instead of using the defaultButtons, you can create your own buttons. If you want, you can use refreshButtonProps and listButtonProps to utilize the default values of the <ListButton>list-button and <RefreshButton>refresh-button components.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit, ListButton, RefreshButton } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
headerButtons={({ refreshButtonProps, listButtonProps }) => (
<>
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
<RefreshButton {...refreshButtonProps} meta={{ foo: "bar" }} />
{listButtonProps && <ListButton {...listButtonProps} meta={{ foo: "bar" }} />}
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

headerButtonProps​

You can use the headerButtonProps property to customize the wrapper element of the buttons at the header:

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
headerButtonProps={{
style: {
backgroundColor: "cornflowerblue",
padding: "16px",
},
}}
headerButtons={<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the Space documentation β†’

footerButtons​

By default, the <Edit/> component has a <SaveButton> and a <DeleteButton> at the footer.

You can customize the buttons at the footer by using the footerButtons property. It accepts React.ReactNode or a render function ({ defaultButtons, saveButtonProps, deleteButtonProps }) => React.ReactNode which you can use to keep the existing buttons and add your own.

CAUTION

If canDelete is false, the <DeleteButton> will not render and deleteButtonProps will be undefined.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
footerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

Or, instead of using the defaultButtons, you can create your own buttons. If you want, you can use saveButtonProps and deleteButtonProps to utilize the default values of the <SaveButton> and <DeleteButton> components.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit, SaveButton, DeleteButton } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
footerButtons={({ saveButtonProps, deleteButtonProps }) => (
<>
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
<SaveButton {...saveButtonProps} hideText />
{deleteButtonProps && <DeleteButton {...deleteButtonProps} hideText />}
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

footerButtonProps​

You can customize the wrapper element of the buttons at the footer by using the footerButtonProps property.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/2
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
footerButtonProps={{
style: {
float: "right",
marginRight: 24,
backgroundColor: "cornflowerblue",
padding: "16px",
},
}}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the Space documentation β†’

autoSaveProps​

You can use the auto save feature of the <Edit/> component by using the autoSaveProps property.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const {
formProps,
saveButtonProps,
queryResult,
autoSaveProps,
} = useForm<IPost>({
warnWhenUnsavedChanges: true,
autoSave: {
enabled: true,
},
});

const postData = queryResult?.data?.data;
const { selectProps: categorySelectProps } = useSelect<ICategory>({
resource: "categories",
defaultValue: postData?.category.id,
});

return (
<Edit
saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}
autoSaveProps={autoSaveProps}
>
<Form {...formProps} layout="vertical">
<Form.Item
label="Title"
name="title"
rules={[
{
required: true,
},
]}
>
<Input />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item
label="Category"
name={["category", "id"]}
rules={[
{
required: true,
},
]}
>
<Select {...categorySelectProps} />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item
label="Status"
name="status"
rules={[
{
required: true,
},
]}
>
<Select
options={[
{
label: "Published",
value: "published",
},
{
label: "Draft",
value: "draft",
},
{
label: "Rejected",
value: "rejected",
},
]}
/>
</Form.Item>
</Form>
</Edit>
);
};
