Show

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

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

localhost:3000/posts/show/123
import { useShow, useOne } from "@refinedev/core";
import { Show, MarkdownField } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Heading, Text, Spacer } from "@chakra-ui/react";

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
const { queryResult } = useShow<IPost>();
const { data, isLoading } = queryResult;
const record = data?.data;

const { data: categoryData } = useOne<ICategory>({
resource: "categories",
id: record?.category.id || "",
queryOptions: {
enabled: !!record?.category.id,
},
});

return (
<Show isLoading={isLoading}>
<Heading as="h5" size="sm">
Id
</Heading>
<Text mt={2}>{record?.id}</Text>

<Heading as="h5" size="sm" mt={4}>
Title
</Heading>
<Text mt={2}>{record?.title}</Text>

<Heading as="h5" size="sm" mt={4}>
Status
</Heading>
<Text mt={2}>{record?.status}</Text>

<Heading as="h5" size="sm" mt={4}>
Category
</Heading>
<Text mt={2}>{categoryData?.data?.title}</Text>

<Heading as="h5" size="sm" mt={4}>
Content
</Heading>
<Spacer mt={2} />
<MarkdownField value={record?.content} />
</Show>
);
};
Good to know:

You can swizzle this component with the Refine CLI to customize it.

Properties​

title​

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

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

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

resource​

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

localhost:3000/custom/123
import { Show } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";

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

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†’

canDelete and canEdit​

canDelete and canEdit allows us to add the delete and edit buttons inside the <Show> component. If the resource has canDelete or canEdit property Refine adds the buttons by default.

When clicked on, delete button executes the useDelete method provided by the dataProvider and the edit button redirects the user to the record edit page.

Refer to the <DeleteButton> and the <EditButton> documentation for detailed usage.

localhost:3000/posts/show/123
import { Show } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { usePermissions } from "@refinedev/core";

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
const { data: permissionsData } = usePermissions();

return (
<Show
canDelete={permissionsData?.includes("admin")}
canEdit={permissionsData?.includes("admin")}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Show>
);
};

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

recordItemId​

<Show> 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/show/123
import { useModalForm } from "@refinedev/react-hook-form";
import { Show } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import {
Modal,
Button,
ModalOverlay,
ModalContent,
ModalCloseButton,
ModalHeader,
ModalBody,
} from "@chakra-ui/react";

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

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

<ModalBody>
<Show recordItemId={id}>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Show>
</ModalBody>
</ModalContent>
</Modal>
</div>
);
};
Implementation Tips:

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

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 dataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";

import { Show } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";

const PostShow = () => {
return <Show dataProviderName="other">...</Show>;
};

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/show/123
import { Show } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { IconMoodSmile } from "@tabler/icons";

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

isLoading​

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

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

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

To customize or disable the breadcrumb, you can use the breadcrumb property. By default it uses the Breadcrumb component from @refinedev/chakra-ui package.

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

const CustomBreadcrumb: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Box borderColor="blue" borderStyle="dashed" borderWidth="2px">
<Breadcrumb />
</Box>
);
};

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Show
breadcrumb={<CustomBreadcrumb />}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Show>
);
};

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

wrapperProps​

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

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

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

For more information, refer to the Box documentation from Chakra UI #8594

headerProps​

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

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

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

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

contentProps​

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

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

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

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

headerButtons​

By default, the <Show/> component has a <ListButton>, <EditButton>, <DeleteButton>, 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, deleteButtonProps, editButtonProps, listButtonProps, refreshButtonProps }) => React.ReactNode which you can use to keep the existing buttons and add your own.

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

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

  • If canEdit is false, <EditButton> will not render and editButtonProps will be undefined.

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

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Show
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<HStack>
{defaultButtons}
<Button colorScheme="red">Custom Button</Button>
</HStack>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Show>
);
};

Or, instead of using the defaultButtons, you can create your own buttons. If you want, you can use createButtonProps to utilize the default values of the <ListButton>, <EditButton>, <DeleteButton>, and, <RefreshButton> components.

localhost:3000/posts/show/123
import {
Show,
ListButton,
EditButton,
DeleteButton,
RefreshButton,
} from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { Button, HStack, Box } from "@chakra-ui/react";

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

headerButtonProps​

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

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

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Show
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>
</Show>
);
};

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

footerButtons​

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

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

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Show
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>
</Show>
);
};

footerButtonProps​

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

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

const PostShow: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Show
footerButtonProps={{
style: {
float: "right",
borderColor: "blue",
borderStyle: "dashed",
borderWidth: "2px",
padding: "8px",
},
}}
footerButtons={<Button colorScheme="green">Custom Button</Button>}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Show>
);
};
