Auto fill filter form in Table Filter

When using filter form to filter data in table it does work. How can I make sure that the filter form is auto filled when page is refreshed. It is causing a bad user experience as filtering applies even if page is refreshed but the form become empty. Is there a builtin way to fix this?

Hi @srest.nishant. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Yes, refine provides a built-in way to sync the filter form with the URL, which ensures that the filter form is auto-filled when the page is refreshed. You can achieve this by setting the syncWithLocation property to true in the options prop. However, keep in mind that when syncWithLocation is enabled, filter values will be of type string since they will be parsed from the URL. This might produce some incompatibility if data for filter input comes from an API and it's not of type string source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/antd/components/filter-dropdown). To enable syncWithLocation, you can update your code like this:
// src/App.tsx or any other file where you have your <Refine> component

function App() {
return (
// ...
<Refine
// ...
options={{ syncWithLocation: true }}
/>
// ...
);
}
// src/App.tsx or any other file where you have your <Refine> component

function App() {
return (
// ...
<Refine
// ...
options={{ syncWithLocation: true }}
/>
// ...
);
}
By setting syncWithLocation to true, the filter form will be auto-filled when the page is refreshed, and the filtering state will be synced with the URL source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/antd/hooks/table/useTable). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai I don't find it working, I am using a custom data provider. Does that matter?

---------------------- Using a custom data provider should not affect the syncWithLocation functionality directly. However, it's possible that your custom data provider implementation might not be handling the filter values correctly when they are passed from the URL. To ensure that your custom data provider handles the filter values correctly, you can check how the filters parameter is being used in your data provider methods, such as getList. Make sure that the filters are being applied to the data fetching logic as expected. If you still face issues, you can share more details about your custom data provider implementation or refer to the refine Data Provider documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/providers/data-provider) for more information on how to implement data providers correctly. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
Data Provider | refine
Data provider acts as a data layer for your app, making HTTP requests and encapsulating how the data is retrieved. The methods of these requests are then consumed by refine via data hooks.

---------------------- If you're handling filters in a custom way, you need to ensure that your custom data provider implementation is correctly processing the filter values passed from the URL when syncWithLocation is enabled. To do this, you should: 1. Check how the filters parameter is being used in your custom data provider methods, such as getList. 2. Make sure that the filters are being applied to the data fetching logic as expected. 3. Ensure that your custom filter handling logic is compatible with the filter values being passed as strings when syncWithLocation is enabled. If you still face issues, you can share more details about your custom data provider implementation or refer to the refine Data Provider documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/providers/data-provider) for more information on how to implement data providers correctly. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai Is there a way to reset filter?

---------------------- Yes, you can reset the filter by using the onReset function provided by the searchFormProps in the useTable or useSimpleList hooks. You can pass this function to a button or any other UI element that triggers the reset action. Here's an example using the useTable hook with Ant Design:
import { Button } from "antd";
import { useTable } from "@pankod/refine";

const MyTable = () => {
const { tableProps, searchFormProps } = useTable();

return (
<>
<Button onClick={searchFormProps.onReset}>Reset Filters</Button>
{/* Your filter form and table components */}
</>
);
};
import { Button } from "antd";
import { useTable } from "@pankod/refine";

const MyTable = () => {
const { tableProps, searchFormProps } = useTable();

return (
<>
<Button onClick={searchFormProps.onReset}>Reset Filters</Button>
{/* Your filter form and table components */}
</>
);
};
This example assumes you're using Ant Design, but the same approach can be applied to other UI libraries as well. Just make sure to import the appropriate components and hooks from the respective library. For more information, you can refer to the following sources: - useTable hook with Ant Design (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/antd/hooks/table/useTable) - useSimpleList hook with Ant Design (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/antd/hooks/list/useSimpleList) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
useTable | refine
By using useTable, you can get properties that are compatible with Ant Design component. All features such as sorting, filtering, and pagination come out of the box. Under the hood it uses useList for the fetch.

By using useSimpleList, you can get properties that are compatible with Ant Design component. All features such as sorting, filtering, and pagination come out of the box. Under the hood it uses useTable for the fetch.
