useSimpleList

By using useSimpleList, you can get properties that are compatible with the Ant Design's <List> component. All features such as sorting, filtering, and pagination come out of the box. useSimpleList uses useTable under the hood for the fetch.

For all the other features, you can refer to the Ant Design's <List> documentation.

Usage​

In the following example, we will show how to use useSimpleList to list the products.

It returns listProps which is compatible with the Ant Design's <List> component. By default, it reads the resource from the current URL.

localhost:3000/products
import { useSimpleList } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Typography, List } from "antd";

const { Text } = Typography;

interface IProduct {
id: number;
name: string;
description: string;
price: string;
}

const ProductList: React.FC = () => {
const { listProps } = useSimpleList<IProduct>();

return <List {...listProps} renderItem={renderItem} />;
};

const renderItem = (item: IProduct) => {
const { id, name, description, price } = item;

return (
<List.Item actions={[<Text key={id}>{price}</Text>]}>
<List.Item.Meta title={name} description={description} />
</List.Item>
);
};

Pagination​

This feature comes out of the box with the listProps.pagination. It generates the pagination links for the <List> component instead of react state and overrides <List>'s pagination.itemRender value.

It also syncs the pagination state with the URL if you enable the syncWithLocation.

If you want to make a change in the pagination of the <List>. You should pass the pagination object of the listProps to the pagination property of the <List> as below. You can override the values of the pagination object as your need.

// ...
const { listProps } = useSimpleList<IProduct>();

// ...

return (
<AntdList
{...listProps}
renderItem={renderItem}
pagination={{
...listProps.pagination,
position: "top",
size: "small",
}}
/>
);
Implementation Tips:

By default, pagination happens on the server side. If you want to do pagination handling on the client side, you can pass the pagination.mode property and set it to "client". You can also disable the pagination by setting it to "off".

Sorting​

The useSimpleList hook supports the sorting feature. You can pass the sorters property to the hook to set the initial and permanent sorting state.

It also syncs the sorting state with the URL if you enable the syncWithLocation.

localhost:3000/products
import { useSimpleList } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Typography, List } from "antd";

const { Text } = Typography;

interface IProduct {
id: number;
name: string;
description: string;
price: string;
}

const ProductList: React.FC = () => {
const { listProps } = useSimpleList<IProduct>({
sorters: {
initial: [
{
field: "name",
order: "desc",
},
],
},
});

return <List {...listProps} renderItem={renderItem} />;
};

const renderItem = (item: IProduct) => {
const { id, name, description, price } = item;

return (
<List.Item actions={[<Text key={id}>{price}</Text>]}>
<List.Item.Meta title={name} description={description} />
</List.Item>
);
};

Filtering​

The useSimpleList hook supports the filtering feature. You can pass the filters property to the hook to set the initial and permanent filtering state and you change the filtering state by using the setFilter function.

It also syncs the filtering state with the URL if you enable the syncWithLocation.

localhost:3000/products
import { useSimpleList } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Typography, List, Input } from "antd";

const { Text } = Typography;

interface IProduct {
id: number;
name: string;
description: string;
price: string;
}

const ProductList: React.FC = () => {
const { listProps, setFilters } = useSimpleList<IProduct>({
filters: {
initial: [
{
field: "name",
operator: "contains",
value: "Awesome",
},
],
},
});

return (
<div>
<Input.Search
placeholder="Search by name"
onChange={(e) => {
setFilters([
{
field: "name",
operator: "contains",
value: e.target.value,
},
]);
}}
/>
<List {...listProps} renderItem={renderItem} />
</div>
);
};

const renderItem = (item: IProduct) => {
const { id, name, description, price } = item;

return (
<List.Item actions={[<Text key={id}>{price}</Text>]}>
<List.Item.Meta title={name} description={description} />
</List.Item>
);
};

We can use the onSearch property and the searchFormProps return value to make a custom filter form. onSearch is a function that is called when the form is submitted. searchFormProps is a property that is passed to the <Form> component.

localhost:3000/products
import { useSimpleList } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Typography, List, Form, Input, Button } from "antd";
import { HttpError } from "@refinedev/core";

const { Text } = Typography;

interface IProduct {
id: number;
name: string;
description: string;
price: string;
}

interface ISearch {
name: string;
description: string;
}

const ProductList: React.FC = () => {
const { listProps, searchFormProps } = useSimpleList<IProduct, HttpError, ISearch>({
onSearch: (values) => {
return [
{
field: "name",
operator: "contains",
value: values.name,
},
{
field: "description",
operator: "contains",
value: values.description,
},
];
},
});

return (
<div>
<Form {...searchFormProps} layout="inline">
<Form.Item name="name">
<Input placeholder="Search by name" />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item name="description">
<Input placeholder="Search by description" />
</Form.Item>
<Button type="primary" onClick={searchFormProps.form?.submit}>
Search
</Button>
</Form>
<List {...listProps} renderItem={renderItem} />
</div>
);
};

const renderItem = (item: IProduct) => {
const { id, name, description, price } = item;

return (
<List.Item actions={[<Text key={id}>{price}</Text>]}>
<List.Item.Meta title={name} description={description} />
</List.Item>
);
};

Realtime Updates​

LiveProvider is required for this prop to work.

When the useSimpleList hook is mounted, it will call the subscribe method from the liveProvider with some parameters such as channel, resource etc. It is useful when you want to subscribe to live updates.

Properties​

resource​

The useSimpleList passes the resource to the dataProvider as a param. This parameter is usually used as an API endpoint path. It all depends on how to handle the resources in your dataProvider.

Refer to the creating a data provider documentation for an example of how resources are handled.

The resource value is inferred from the current route where the component or the hook is used. It can be overridden by passing the resource prop.

The use case for overriding the resource prop:

  • We can list a category from the <ProductList> page.
import React from "react";
import { HttpError } from "@refinedev/core";
import { useSimpleList } from "@refinedev/antd";

interface IProduct {
id: number;
name: string;
description: string;
price: string;
}

interface ICategory {
id: number;
name: string;
}

export const ProductList: React.FC = () => {
const { tableQueryResult: productsQueryResult } = useSimpleList<IProduct, HttpError>();

const { tableQueryResult: categoriesQueryResult } = useSimpleList<ICategory, HttpError>({
resource: "categories",
});

return <div>{/* ... */}</div>;
};

Also, you can give a URL path to the resource prop.

useSimpleList({
resource: "categories/subcategory", // <BASE_URL_FROM_DATA_PROVIDER>/categories/subcategory
});

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 of the <Refine/> component documentation β†’

pagination.current​

Sets the initial value of the page index. It is 1 by default.

useSimpleList({
pagination: {
current: 2,
},
});

pagination.pageSize​

Sets the initial value of the page size. It is 10 by default.

useSimpleList({
pagination: {
pageSize: 20,
},
});

pagination.mode​

It can be "off", "server" or "client". It is "server" by default.

  • "off": Pagination is disabled. All records will be fetched.
  • "client": Pagination is done on the client side. All records will be fetched and then the records will be paginated on the client side.
  • "server":: Pagination is done on the server side. Records will be fetched by using the current and pageSize values.
useSimpleList({
pagination: {
mode: "client",
},
});

sorters.initial​

Sets the initial value of the sorter. The initial is not permanent. It will be cleared when the user changes the sorter. If you want to set a permanent value, use the sorters.permanent prop.

For more information, refer to the CrudSorting interface documentation β†’

useSimpleList({
sorters: {
initial: [
{
field: "name",
order: "asc",
},
],
},
});

sorters.permanent​

Sets the permanent value of the sorter. The permanent is permanent and unchangeable. It will not be cleared when the user changes the sorter. If you want to set a temporary value, use the sorters.initial prop.

For more information, refer to the CrudSorting interface documentation β†’

useSimpleList({
sorters: {
permanent: [
{
field: "name",
order: "asc",
},
],
},
});

filters.initial​

Sets the initial value of the filter. The initial is not permanent. It will be cleared when the user changes the filter. If you want to set a permanent value, use the filters.permanent prop.

For more information, refer to the CrudFilters β†’

useSimpleList({
filters: {
initial: [
{
field: "name",
operator: "contains",
value: "Foo",
},
],
},
});

filters.permanent​

Sets the permanent value of the filter. The permanent is permanent and unchangeable. It will not be cleared when the user changes the filter. If you want to set a temporary value, use the filters.initial prop.

For more information, refer to the CrudFilters β†’

useSimpleList({
filters: {
permanent: [
{
field: "name",
operator: "contains",
value: "Foo",
},
],
},
});

filters.defaultBehavior​

The filtering behavior can be set to either "merge" or "replace". It is merge by default.

  • When the filter behavior is set to "merge", it will merge the new filter with the existing filters. This means that if the new filter has the same column as an existing filter, the new filter will replace the existing filter for that column. If the new filter has a different column than the existing filters, it will be added to the existing filters.

  • When the filter behavior is set to "replace", it will replace all existing filters with the new filter. This means that any existing filters will be removed and only the new filter will be applied to the table.

You can also override the default value by using the second parameter of the setFilters function.

useSimpleList({
filters: {
defaultBehavior: "replace",
},
});

syncWithLocation
Globally Configurable
This value can be configured globally. Click to see the guide for more information.
​

When you use the syncWithLocation feature, the useSimpleList's state (e.g. sort order, filters, pagination) is automatically encoded in the query parameters of the URL, and when the URL changes, the useSimpleList state is automatically updated to match. This makes it easy to share list states across different routes or pages and allows users to bookmark or share links to specific table views. syncWithLocation is set to false by default.

useSimpleList({
syncWithLocation: true,
});

queryOptions​

useSimpleList uses the useTable hook to fetch data. You can pass the queryOptions to it like this:

useSimpleList({
queryOptions: {
retry: 3,
},
});

meta​

meta is a special property that can be used to pass additional information to data provider methods for the following purposes:

  • Customizing the data provider methods for specific use cases.
  • Generating GraphQL queries using plain JavaScript Objects (JSON).

For more information, refer to the meta section of the General Concepts documentation for more information β†’

In the following example, we pass the headers property in the meta object to the create method. With similar logic, you can pass any properties to specifically handle the data provider methods.

useSimpleList({
meta: {
headers: { "x-meta-data": "true" },
},
});

const myDataProvider = {
//...
getList: async ({
resource,
pagination,
sorters,
filters,
meta,
}) => {
const headers = meta?.headers ?? {};
const url = `${apiUrl}/${resource}`;

//...
//...

const { data, headers } = await httpClient.get(`${url}`, { headers });

return {
data,
};
},
//...
};

dataProviderName​

If there is more than one dataProvider, you can specify which one to use by passing the dataProviderName prop. This is useful when you have a different data provider for different resources.

useSimpleList({
dataProviderName: "second-data-provider",
});

successNotification​

NotificationProvider is required for this prop to work.

After data is fetched successfully, useSimpleList can call the open function from NotificationProvider to show a success notification. With this prop, you can customize the success notification.

useSimpleList({
successNotification: (data, values, resource) => {
return {
message: `${data.title} Successfully fetched.`,
description: "Success with no errors",
type: "success",
};
},
});

errorNotification​

NotificationProvider is required for this prop to work.

After data fetching is failed, useSimpleList will call the open function from NotificationProvider to show an error notification. With this prop, you can customize the error notification.

useSimpleList({
errorNotification: (data, values, resource) => {
return {
message: `Something went wrong when getting ${data.id}`,
description: "Error",
type: "error",
};
},
});

liveMode​

LiveProvider is required for this prop to work.

Determines whether to update data automatically ("auto") or not ("manual") if a related live event is received. It can be used to update and show data in Realtime throughout your app.

For more information, refer to the Live / Realtime documentation β†’

useSimpleList({
liveMode: "auto",
});

onLiveEvent​

LiveProvider is required for this prop to work.

The callback function is executed when new events from a subscription have arrived.

useSimpleList({
onLiveEvent: (event) => {
console.log(event);
},
});

liveParams​

LiveProvider is required for this prop to work.

Params to pass to liveProvider's subscribe method.

onSearch​

When searchFormProps.onFinish is called, the onSearch function is called with the values of the form. The onSearch function should return CrudFilters | Promise<CrudFilters>. When the onSearch function is called, the current page will be set to 1.

onSearch is useful when you want to filter the data with multiple fields by using the <Form> component.

// ...

const { searchFormProps, listProps } = useSimpleList({
onSearch: (values) => {
return [
{
field: "name",
operator: "contains",
value: values.name,
},
{
field: "description",
operator: "contains",
value: values.description,
},
];
},
});

// ...

return (
<div>
<Form {...searchFormProps} layout="inline">
<Form.Item name="name">
<Input placeholder="Search by name" />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item name="description">
<Input placeholder="Search by description" />
</Form.Item>
<Button type="primary" onClick={searchFormProps.form?.submit}>
Search
</Button>
</Form>
<AntdList {...listProps} renderItem={renderItem} />
</div>
);

overtimeOptions​

If you want the loading overtime for the request, you can pass the overtimeOptions prop to the this hook. It is useful if you want to show a loading indicator when the request takes too long. interval is the time interval in milliseconds while onInterval is the function that will be called on each interval.

Return overtime object from this hook. elapsedTime is the elapsed time in milliseconds. It becomes undefined when the request is completed.

const { overtime } = useSimpleList({
//...
overtimeOptions: {
interval: 1000,
onInterval(elapsedInterval) {
console.log(elapsedInterval);
},
},
});

console.log(overtime.elapsedTime); // undefined, 1000, 2000, 3000 4000, ...

// You can use it like this:
{
elapsedTime >= 4000 && <div>this takes a bit longer than expected</div>;
}

Return Values​

// ...

const { searchFormProps, listProps } = useSimpleList({
onSearch: (values) => {
return [
{
field: "name",
operator: "contains",
