Hi @yaztoosleepy. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- The if (render) block in the renderSider function checks if a custom render function is provided for the <Sider> component. If a custom render function is provided, it will be called with an object containing dashboard, items, logout, and collapsed properties. The custom render function allows you to customize the rendering of the <Sider> component without needing to swizzle the whole component. In this specific code snippet, dashboard is set to null. This means that the custom render function will not receive a dashboard component to render. Instead, it will only receive the items (navigation items), logout (logout button), and collapsed (boolean indicating if the sider is collapsed) properties. Here's an example of using the render prop with the <Sider> component:
import { Sider } from "@refinedev/antd";

const CustomSider = () => {
return (
<Sider
render={({ items, logout, collapsed }) => {
return (
<>
<div>My Custom Element</div>
{items}
{logout}
</>
);
}}
/>
);
};
import { Sider } from "@refinedev/antd";

const CustomSider = () => {
return (
<Sider
render={({ items, logout, collapsed }) => {
return (
<>
<div>My Custom Element</div>
{items}
{logout}
</>
);
}}
/>
);
};
In this example, the custom render function is used to add a custom element to the <Sider> component while still rendering the navigation items and the logout button. The dashboard property is not used in this example, as it is set to null in the original code snippet. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

---------------------- To customize the look of the elements in {items} and {logout} in the collapsible sidebar, you can use the render prop of the <Sider> component. The render prop is a function that receives an object with the items and logout properties. You can then apply custom styles or wrap the elements with additional components as needed. Here's an example using Ant Design:
import { Layout, Sider } from "@refinedev/antd";

const CustomSider = () => {
return (
<Sider
render={({ items, logout }) => {
return (
<>
<div style={{ color: "red" }}>Customized Items:</div>
<div style={{ paddingLeft: "10px" }}>{items}</div>
<div style={{ borderTop: "1px solid #ccc", paddingTop: "10px" }}>
{logout}
</div>
</>
);
}}
/>
);
};

const CustomLayout = () => {
return <Layout Sider={CustomSider}>...</Layout>;
};
import { Layout, Sider } from "@refinedev/antd";

const CustomSider = () => {
return (
<Sider
render={({ items, logout }) => {
return (
<>
<div style={{ color: "red" }}>Customized Items:</div>
<div style={{ paddingLeft: "10px" }}>{items}</div>
<div style={{ borderTop: "1px solid #ccc", paddingTop: "10px" }}>
{logout}
</div>
</>
);
}}
/>
);
};

const CustomLayout = () => {
return <Layout Sider={CustomSider}>...</Layout>;
};
In this example, we've added custom styles to the items and logout elements. You can modify the styles or add additional components as needed to achieve the desired look for your collapsible sidebar. Refer to the Custom Sider example (https://refine.dev/docs/examples/customization/customSider/) for more information on customizing the Sider component. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
Custom Sider | refine

How do I override antd styles when I use css modules How do I override antd styles when I use css modules for antd v5^ @kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To override Ant Design styles when using CSS modules for Ant Design v5, you can create a separate CSS file with your custom styles and import it into your component. Make sure to import your custom CSS file after importing the Ant Design styles to ensure your custom styles take precedence. Here's an example: 1. Create a custom CSS file, e.g., custom-styles.css:
/* Override Ant Design Button styles */
.ant-btn {
background-color: #f00;
border-color: #f00;
}
/* Override Ant Design Button styles */
.ant-btn {
background-color: #f00;
border-color: #f00;
}
2. Import the Ant Design styles and your custom CSS file in your component:
import "@refinedev/antd/dist/reset.css";
import "./custom-styles.css";
import "@refinedev/antd/dist/reset.css";
import "./custom-styles.css";
In this example, we've overridden the background color and border color of the Ant Design Button component. You can add more custom styles to the custom-styles.css file as needed. Keep in mind that Refine uses Ant Design v4, and the migration guide from v4 to v5 is for Ant Design itself, not for Refine. Refine still uses Ant Design v4, so the process of overriding styles remains the same as in Ant Design v4. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
