Edit

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

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

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { FormControl, FormErrorMessage, FormLabel, Input, Select } from "@chakra-ui/react";
import { useSelect } from "@refinedev/core";
import { useForm } from "@refinedev/react-hook-form";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const {
refineCore: { formLoading, queryResult },
saveButtonProps,
register,
formState: { errors },
resetField,
} = useForm<IPost>();

const { options } = useSelect({
resource: "categories",

defaultValue: queryResult?.data?.data.category.id,
queryOptions: { enabled: !!queryResult?.data?.data.category.id },
});

useEffect(() => {
resetField("category.id");
}, [options]);

return (
<Edit isLoading={formLoading} saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}>
<FormControl mb="3" isInvalid={!!errors?.title}>
<FormLabel>Title</FormLabel>
<Input id="title" type="text" {...register("title", { required: "Title is required" })} />
<FormErrorMessage>{`${errors.title?.message}`}</FormErrorMessage>
</FormControl>
<FormControl mb="3" isInvalid={!!errors?.status}>
<FormLabel>Status</FormLabel>
<Select
id="content"
placeholder="Select Post Status"
{...register("status", {
required: "Status is required",
})}
>
<option>published</option>
<option>draft</option>
<option>rejected</option>
</Select>
<FormErrorMessage>{`${errors.status?.message}`}</FormErrorMessage>
</FormControl>
<FormControl mb="3" isInvalid={!!errors?.categoryId}>
<FormLabel>Category</FormLabel>
<Select
id="ca"
placeholder="Select Category"
{...register("category.id", {
required: true,
})}
>
{options?.map((option) => (
<option value={option.value} key={option.value}>
{option.label}
</option>
))}
</Select>
<FormErrorMessage>{`${errors.categoryId?.message}`}</FormErrorMessage>
</FormControl>
</Edit>
);
};
Swizzle

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

Properties​

title​

title allows the addition of titles inside the <Edit> component. if you don't pass title props it uses the "Edit" prefix and singular resource name by default. For example, for the "posts" resource, it would be "Edit post".

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Heading } from "@chakra-ui/react";

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

saveButtonProps​

saveButtonProps can be used to customize the default button of the <Edit> component that submits the form:

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";

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

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

canDelete and deleteButtonProps​

canDelete allows us to add the delete button inside the <Edit> component that executes the useDelete method provided by the dataProvider when clicked on.

If the resource has the canDelete property, refine adds the delete button by default. 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/chakra-ui";
import { usePermissions } from "@refinedev/core";

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

For more information, refer to the <DeleteButton> β†’ and usePermission β†’ documentations

resource​

<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/23
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";

const CustomPage: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit resource="categories">
<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. recordItemId is used when it cannot read from the URL(when used on a custom page, modal or drawer).

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { useModalForm } from "@refinedev/react-hook-form";
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Modal, Button, ModalOverlay, ModalContent, ModalCloseButton, ModalHeader, ModalBody } from "@chakra-ui/react";

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

return (
<div>
<Button onClick={() => show()}>Edit Button</Button>
<Modal isOpen={visible} onClose={close} size="xl">
<ModalOverlay />
<ModalContent>
<ModalCloseButton />
<ModalHeader>Edit</ModalHeader>

<ModalBody>
<Edit recordItemId={id}>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
</ModalBody>
</ModalContent>
</Modal>
</div>
);
};
NOTE

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

mutationMode​

mutationMode determines which mode the mutation will have while executing <DeleteButton>.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Input, FormControl, FormLabel, FormErrorMessage } from "@chakra-ui/react";
import { useForm } from "@refinedev/react-hook-form";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const {
saveButtonProps,
register,
formState: { errors },
} = useForm<IPost>();

return (
<Edit
mutationMode="undoable"
canDelete
saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}
>
<FormControl mb="3" isInvalid={!!errors?.title}>
<FormLabel>Title</FormLabel>
<Input id="title" type="text" {...register("title", { required: "Title is required" })} />
<FormErrorMessage>{`${errors.title?.message}`}</FormErrorMessage>
</FormControl>
</Edit>
);
};

dataProviderName​

If not specified, refine will use the default data provider. If you have multiple data providers and want to use a different one, you can use the dataProviderName property.

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

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. You can pass false or null to hide the back button.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { IconMoodSmile } from "@tabler/icons";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit goBack={<IconMoodSmile />}>
<p>Rest of your page here 2</p>
</Edit>
);
};

isLoading​

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

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";

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 it uses the Breadcrumb component from @refinedev/chakra-ui package.

TIP

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

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit, Breadcrumb } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Box } from "@chakra-ui/react";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
breadcrumb={
<Box borderColor="blue" borderStyle="dashed" borderWidth="2px">
<Breadcrumb />
</Box>
}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

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

wrapperProps​

If you want to customize the wrapper of the <Edit/> component, you can use the wrapperProps property. For @refinedev/chakra-ui wrapper element is <Card>s and wrapperProps can get every attribute that <Card> can get.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
wrapperProps={{
borderColor: "blue",
borderStyle: "dashed",
borderWidth: "2px",
p: "2",
}}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the Box documentation from Chakra UI β†’

headerProps​

If you want to customize the header of the <Edit/> component, you can use the headerProps property.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
headerProps={{
borderColor: "blue",
borderStyle: "dashed",
borderWidth: "2px",
}}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the Box documentation from Chakra UI β†’

contentProps​

If you want to customize the content of the <Edit/> component, you can use the contentProps property.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
contentProps={{
borderColor: "blue",
borderStyle: "dashed",
borderWidth: "2px",
p: "2",
}}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the Box documentation from Chakra UI 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/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Button, HStack, Box } from "@chakra-ui/react";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<HStack>
{defaultButtons}
<Button colorScheme="red">Custom Button</Button>
</HStack>
)}
>
<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> and <RefreshButton> components.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Button, HStack, Box } from "@chakra-ui/react";

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

headerButtonProps​

You can customize the wrapper element of the buttons at the header by using the headerButtonProps property.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Button } from "@chakra-ui/react";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
headerButtonProps={{
borderColor: "blue",
borderStyle: "dashed",
borderWidth: "2px",
p: "2",
}}
headerButtons={
<Button variant="outline" colorScheme="green">
Custom Button
</Button>
}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the Box documentation from Chakra UI 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/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Button, HStack } from "@chakra-ui/react";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
footerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<HStack borderColor="blue" borderStyle="dashed" borderWidth="2px" p="2">
{defaultButtons}
<Button colorScheme="red" variant="solid">
Custom Button
</Button>
</HStack>
)}
>
<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/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Button, HStack } from "@chakra-ui/react";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
footerButtons={({ saveButtonProps, deleteButtonProps }) => (
<HStack borderColor="blue" borderStyle="dashed" borderWidth="2px" p="2">
<SaveButton {...saveButtonProps} hideText />
{deleteButtonProps && <DeleteButton {...deleteButtonProps} hideText />}
<Button colorScheme="red" variant="solid">
Custom Button
</Button>
</HStack>
)}
>
<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/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
footerButtonProps={{
float: "right",
borderColor: "blue",
borderStyle: "dashed",
borderWidth: "2px",
p: "2",
}}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the Box documentation from Chakra UI 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 {
refineCore: {
formLoading,
queryResult,
autoSaveProps,
},
saveButtonProps,
register,
formState: { errors },
resetField,
} = useForm<IPost>({
refineCoreProps: {
autoSave: {
enabled: true,
},
},
});

const { options } = useSelect({
resource: "categories",

defaultValue: queryResult?.data?.data.category.id,
queryOptions: { enabled: !!queryResult?.data?.data.category.id },
});

useEffect(() => {
resetField("category.id");
}, [options]);

return (
<Edit
isLoading={formLoading}
saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}
autoSaveProps={autoSaveProps}
>
<FormControl mb="3" isInvalid={!!errors?.title}>
<FormLabel>Title</FormLabel>
<Input id="title" type="text" {...register("title", { required: "Title is required" })} />
<FormErrorMessage>{`${errors.title?.message}`}</FormErrorMessage>
</FormControl>
<FormControl mb="3" isInvalid={!!errors?.status}>
<FormLabel>Status</FormLabel>
<Select
id="content"
placeholder="Select Post Status"
{...register("status", {
required: "Status is required",
})}
>
<option>published</option>
<option>draft</option>
<option>rejected</option>
</Select>
<FormErrorMessage>{`${errors.status?.message}`}</FormErrorMessage>
</FormControl>
<FormControl mb="3" isInvalid={!!errors?.categoryId}>
<FormLabel>Category</FormLabel>
<Select
id="ca"
placeholder="Select Category"
{...register("category.id", {
required: true,
})}
>
{options?.map((option) => (
<option value={option.value} key={option.value}>
{option.label}
</option>
))}
</Select>
<FormErrorMessage>{`${errors.categoryId?.message}`}</FormErrorMessage>
</FormControl>
</Edit>
);
};
