Edit

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

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

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import React from "react";
import { Edit, useAutocomplete } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { TextField, Autocomplete, Box } from "@mui/material";
import { useForm } from "@refinedev/react-hook-form";
import { Controller } from "react-hook-form";

const SampleEdit = () => {
const {
saveButtonProps,
refineCore: { queryResult },
register,
control,
formState: { errors },
} = useForm();

const samplesData = queryResult?.data?.data;

const { autocompleteProps: categoryAutocompleteProps } = useAutocomplete({
resource: "categories",
defaultValue: samplesData?.category?.id,
});

return (
<Edit saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}>
<Box
component="form"
sx={{ display: "flex", flexDirection: "column" }}
autoComplete="off"
>
<TextField
{...register("id", {
required: "This field is required",
})}
error={!!(errors as any)?.id}
helperText={(errors as any)?.id?.message}
margin="normal"
fullWidth
InputLabelProps={{ shrink: true }}
type="number"
label="Id"
name="id"
disabled
/>
<TextField
{...register("title", {
required: "This field is required",
})}
error={!!(errors as any)?.title}
helperText={(errors as any)?.title?.message}
margin="normal"
fullWidth
InputLabelProps={{ shrink: true }}
type="text"
label="Title"
name="title"
/>
<Controller
control={control}
name="category"
rules={{ required: "This field is required" }}
// eslint-disable-next-line
defaultValue={null as any}
render={({ field }) => (
<Autocomplete
{...categoryAutocompleteProps}
{...field}
onChange={(_, value) => {
field.onChange(value);
}}
getOptionLabel={(item) => {
return (
categoryAutocompleteProps?.options?.find(
(p) => p?.id?.toString() === item?.id?.toString(),
)?.title ?? ""
);
}}
isOptionEqualToValue={(option, value) =>
value === undefined ||
option?.id?.toString() === (value?.id ?? value)?.toString()
}
renderInput={(params) => (
<TextField
{...params}
label="Category"
margin="normal"
variant="outlined"
error={!!(errors as any)?.category?.id}
helperText={(errors as any)?.category?.id?.message}
required
/>
)}
/>
)}
/>
</Box>
</Edit>
);
};
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 <Edit> component. If you don't pass title props it uses "Edit" prefix and singular resource name by default. For example, for the /posts/edit resource, it will be "Edit post".

localhost:3000/posts/create
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { Typography } from "@mui/material";

const EditPage: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
title={<Typography variant="h5">Custom Title</Typography>}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</Edit>
);
};

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

const CustomPage: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit resource="posts" recordItemId={123}>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</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†’

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 like the code below:

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

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

When clicked on, the delete button executes the useDelete method provided by the dataProvider.

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit } from "@refinedev/mui";
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> β†’ and usePermission β†’ documentations

recordItemId​

The <Edit> component reads the id information from the route by default. recordItemId is used when it cannot read from the URL, like when its used on a custom page, modal or drawer.

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

const CustomPage: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit resource="posts" recordItemId={123}>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</Edit>
);
};

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/123
import React from "react";
import { Edit, useAutocomplete } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { TextField, Autocomplete, Box } from "@mui/material";

import { useForm } from "@refinedev/react-hook-form";
import { Controller } from "react-hook-form";

const SampleEdit = () => {
const {
saveButtonProps,
refineCore: { queryResult },
register,
control,
formState: { errors },
} = useForm();

const samplesData = queryResult?.data?.data;

const { autocompleteProps: categoryAutocompleteProps } = useAutocomplete({
resource: "categories",
defaultValue: samplesData?.category?.id,
});

return (
<Edit
saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}
canDelete
mutationMode="undoable"
>
<Box
component="form"
sx={{ display: "flex", flexDirection: "column" }}
autoComplete="off"
>
<TextField
{...register("id", {
required: "This field is required",
})}
error={!!(errors as any)?.id}
helperText={(errors as any)?.id?.message}
margin="normal"
fullWidth
InputLabelProps={{ shrink: true }}
type="number"
label="Id"
name="id"
disabled
/>
<TextField
{...register("title", {
required: "This field is required",
})}
error={!!(errors as any)?.title}
helperText={(errors as any)?.title?.message}
margin="normal"
fullWidth
InputLabelProps={{ shrink: true }}
type="text"
label="Title"
name="title"
/>
<Controller
control={control}
name="category"
rules={{ required: "This field is required" }}
// eslint-disable-next-line
defaultValue={null as any}
render={({ field }) => (
<Autocomplete
{...categoryAutocompleteProps}
{...field}
onChange={(_, value) => {
field.onChange(value);
}}
getOptionLabel={(item) => {
return (
categoryAutocompleteProps?.options?.find(
(p) => p?.id?.toString() === item?.id?.toString(),
)?.title ?? ""
);
}}
isOptionEqualToValue={(option, value) =>
value === undefined ||
option?.id?.toString() === (value?.id ?? value)?.toString()
}
renderInput={(params) => (
<TextField
{...params}
label="Category"
margin="normal"
variant="outlined"
error={!!(errors as any)?.category?.id}
helperText={(errors as any)?.category?.id?.message}
required
/>
)}
/>
)}
/>
</Box>
</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 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 { Edit } from "@refinedev/mui";

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/mui";
import { Button } from "@mui/material";
import { useBack } from "@refinedev/core";

const BackButton = () => {
const goBack = useBack();

return <Button onClick={goBack}>BACK!</Button>;
};

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
goBack={<BackButton />}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</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/mui";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);

return (
<Edit
isLoading={loading}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</Edit>
);
};

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

localhost:3000/posts/edit/123
import { Edit, Breadcrumb } from "@refinedev/mui";

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

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

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);

return (
<Edit
wrapperProps={{
sx: {
backgroundColor: "lightsteelblue",
},
}}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the Card documentation from Material 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/mui";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);

return (
<Edit
headerProps={{
sx: {
backgroundColor: "lightsteelblue",
},
}}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the CardHeader documentation from Material 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/mui";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);

return (
<Edit
contentProps={{
sx: {
backgroundColor: "lightsteelblue",
},
}}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the CardContent documentation from Material 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.

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

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

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);

return (
<Edit
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</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, ListButton, RefreshButton } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { Button } from "@mui/material";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);

return (
<Edit
headerButtons={({ refreshButtonProps, listButtonProps }) => (
<>
<RefreshButton {...refreshButtonProps} meta={{ foo: "bar" }} />
{listButtonProps && (
<ListButton {...listButtonProps} meta={{ foo: "bar" }} />
)}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</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/mui";
import { Button } from "@mui/material";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);

return (
<Edit
headerButtonProps={{
sx: {
backgroundColor: "lightsteelblue",
},
}}
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the Box documentation from Material 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.

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

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

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);

return (
<Edit
footerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</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, SaveButton, DeleteButton } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { Button } from "@mui/material";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);

return (
<Edit
footerButtons={({ saveButtonProps, deleteButtonProps }) => (
<>
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
<SaveButton {...saveButtonProps} hideText />
{deleteButtonProps && (
<DeleteButton {...deleteButtonProps} hideText />
)}
</>
)}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</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/mui";
import { Button } from "@mui/material";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);

return (
<Edit
footerButtonProps={{
sx: {
backgroundColor: "lightsteelblue",
},
}}
footerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</Edit>
);
};

For more information, refer to the CardActions documentation from Material 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 SampleEdit = () => {
const {
saveButtonProps,
refineCore: {
queryResult,
autoSaveProps,
},
register,
control,
formState: { errors },
} = useForm({
refineCoreProps: {
autoSave: {
enabled: true,
},
},
});

const samplesData = queryResult?.data?.data;

const { autocompleteProps: categoryAutocompleteProps } = useAutocomplete({
resource: "categories",
defaultValue: samplesData?.category?.id,
});

return (
<Edit
saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}
autoSaveProps={autoSaveProps}
>
<Box
component="form"
sx={{ display: "flex", flexDirection: "column" }}
autoComplete="off"
>
<TextField
{...register("id", {
required: "This field is required",
})}
error={!!(errors as any)?.id}
helperText={(errors as any)?.id?.message}
margin="normal"
fullWidth
InputLabelProps={{ shrink: true }}
type="number"
label="Id"
name="id"
disabled
/>
<TextField
{...register("title", {
required: "This field is required",
})}
error={!!(errors as any)?.title}
helperText={(errors as any)?.title?.message}
margin="normal"
fullWidth
InputLabelProps={{ shrink: true }}
type="text"
label="Title"

rules={{ required: "This field is required" }}
// eslint-disable-next-line
defaultValue={null as any}
render={({ field }) => (
<Autocomplete
{...categoryAutocompleteProps}
{...field}
onChange={(_, value) => {
field.onChange(value);
}}
getOptionLabel={(item) => {
return (
categoryAutocompleteProps?.options?.find(
(p) => p?.id?.toString() === item?.id?.toString(),
)?.title ?? ""
);
}}
isOptionEqualToValue={(option, value) =>
value === undefined ||
option?.id?.toString() === (value?.id ?? value)?.toString()
}
renderInput={(params) => (
<TextField
{...params}
label="Category"
margin="normal"
variant="outlined"
error={!!(errors as any)?.category?.id}
helperText={(errors as any)?.category?.id?.message}
required
/>
)}
/>
)}
/>
</Box>
</Edit>
);
};
