Swizzle Ready

Create

<CreateButton> uses Material UI's <Button> component. It uses the create method from useNavigation under the hood. It can be useful to redirect the app to the create page route of resource.

Good to know:

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

Usage​

localhost:3000/posts
import {
useDataGrid,
List,
CreateButton,
} from "@refinedev/mui";
import { DataGrid, GridColDef } from "@mui/x-data-grid";

const columns: GridColDef[] = [
{ field: "id", headerName: "ID", type: "number" },
{ field: "title", headerName: "Title", minWidth: 400, flex: 1 },
];

const PostsList: React.FC = () => {
const { dataGridProps } = useDataGrid<IPost>();

return (
<List headerButtons={<CreateButton />}>
<DataGrid {...dataGridProps} columns={columns} autoHeight />
</List>
);
};

interface IPost {
id: number;
title: string;
}

Properties​

resource​

It is used to redirect the app to the create action path of the given resource name. By default, the app redirects to the inferred resource's create action path.

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

const MyCreateComponent = () => {
return (
<CreateButton
resource="categories"
/>
);
};

Clicking the button will trigger the create method of useNavigation and then redirect the app to the create action path of the resource, filling the necessary parameters in the route.

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†’

meta​

It is used to pass additional parameters to the create method of useNavigation. By default, existing parameters in the route are used by the create method. You can pass additional parameters or override the existing ones using the meta prop.

If the create action route is defined by the pattern: /posts/:authorId/create, the meta prop can be used as follows:

const MyComponent = () => {
return <CreateButton meta={{ authorId: "10" }} />;
};

hideText​

hideText is used to show or hide the text of the button. When true, only the button icon is visible.

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

const MyCreateComponent = () => {
return (
<CreateButton
hideText={true}
/>
);
};

accessControl​

The accessControl prop can be used to skip access control check with its enabled property or to hide the button when the user does not have the permission to access the resource with hideIfUnauthorized property. This is relevant only when an accessControlProvider is provided to <Refine/>

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

export const MyListComponent = () => {
return (
<CreateButton accessControl={{ enabled: true, hideIfUnauthorized: true }} />
);
};

resourceNameOrRouteName
deprecated

Use resource prop instead.
