List

<List> provides us a layout to display the page. It does not contain any logic and just adds extra functionalities like a create button or giving the page titles.

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

localhost:3000/posts
import React from "react";
import { useMany } from "@refinedev/core";
import { List, useDataGrid, DateField } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { DataGrid, GridColDef } from "@mui/x-data-grid";

const SampleList = () => {
const { dataGridProps } = useDataGrid();

const { data: categoryData, isLoading: categoryIsLoading } = useMany({
resource: "categories",
ids: dataGridProps?.rows?.map((item: any) => item?.category?.id) ?? [],
queryOptions: {
enabled: !!dataGridProps?.rows,
},
});

const columns = React.useMemo<GridColDef<any>[]>(
() => [
{
field: "id",
headerName: "Id",
type: "number",
minWidth: 50,
},
{
field: "title",
headerName: "Title",
minWidth: 200,
},
{
field: "category",
headerName: "Category",
valueGetter: ({ row }) => {
const value = row?.category?.id;

return value;
},
minWidth: 300,
renderCell: function render({ value }) {
return categoryIsLoading ? (
<>Loading...</>
) : (
categoryData?.data?.find((item) => item.id === value)?.title
);
},
},
{
field: "createdAt",
headerName: "Created At",
minWidth: 250,
renderCell: function render({ value }) {
return <DateField value={value} />;
},
},
],
[categoryData?.data],
);

return (
<List>
<DataGrid {...dataGridProps} columns={columns} autoHeight />
</List>
);
};
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 <List> component. If you don't pass title props it uses the plural resource name by default. For example, for the /posts resource, it will be "Posts".

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

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

resource​

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

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

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

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†’

canCreate and createButtonProps​

canCreate allows us to add the create button inside the <List> component. If resource is passed a create component, Refine adds the create button by default. If you want to customize this button you can use createButtonProps property like the code below.

Create button redirects to the create page of the resource according to the value it reads from the URL.

localhost:3000/posts
import { List } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { usePermissions } from "@refinedev/core";

const PostList: React.FC = () => {
const { data: permissionsData } = usePermissions();
return (
<List
canCreate={permissionsData?.includes("admin")}
createButtonProps={{ size: "small" }}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</List>
);
};

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

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
import { List, Breadcrumb } from "@refinedev/mui";

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

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

wrapperProps​

If you want to customize the wrapper of the <List/> component, you can use the wrapperProps property.

localhost:3000/posts
import { List } from "@refinedev/mui";

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

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

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

headerProps​

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

localhost:3000/posts
import { List } from "@refinedev/mui";

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

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

For more information, refer to the CardHeader documentation from Material UI β†’

contentProps​

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

localhost:3000/posts
import { List } from "@refinedev/mui";

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

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

For more information, refer to the CardContent documentation from Material UI β†’

headerButtons​

By default, the <List/> component has a <CreateButton> 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, createButtonProps }) => React.ReactNode which you can use to keep the existing buttons and add your own.

If "create" resource is not defined or canCreate is false, the <CreateButton> will not render and createButtonProps will be undefined.

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

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

return (
<List
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</List>
);
};

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 <CreateButton> component.

localhost:3000/posts
import { List, CreateButton } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { Button } from "@mui/material";

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

return (
<List
headerButtons={({ createButtonProps }) => (
<>
{createButtonProps && (
<CreateButton {...createButtonProps} meta={{ foo: "bar" }} />
)}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<span>Rest of your page here</span>
</List>
);
};

headerButtonProps​

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

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

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

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