Refreshing via RefreshButton & On an Interval

Hi! I have three questions relating to refreshing data: 1. I've used RefreshButton with an empty string as recordItemId to refetch list data. It's fetching correctly inside the networks tab, but I don't believe this is correct, as the table does not seem to update (no loading buffer appears where it otherwise would). 2. Is it possible to refresh two different tables (one attributed to, say, /customers, and the other to /products) with one RefreshButton? 3. Is there anyway to refetch data on an interval (i.e update the table every 2 minutes?) Any insights appreciated 🙂

Hi @avangeous. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- 1. The recordItemId prop in the RefreshButton component is used to specify which data record is going to be refreshed. If you're using an empty string as the recordItemId, it might not be able to find the specific record to refresh, hence the table not updating. You should provide the specific id of the record you want to refresh. Here's an example:
import { RefreshButton } from "@refinedev/mui";

const MyRefreshComponent = () => {
return (
<RefreshButton
resource="posts"
recordItemId="1"
/>
);
};
import { RefreshButton } from "@refinedev/mui";

const MyRefreshComponent = () => {
return (
<RefreshButton
resource="posts"
recordItemId="1"
/>
);
};
In this example, clicking the button will trigger the useOne method and then fetches the record whose resource is "post" and whose id is "1". source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/components/buttons/refresh-button) 2. The RefreshButton component is designed to refresh a specific resource based on the resource prop. If you want to refresh two different tables (resources), you might need to use two different RefreshButton components, each with the respective resource specified. However, the extracts do not provide a clear answer to this, so you might want to check the official documentation or ask in the community for more specific guidance. 3. The extracts do not provide information on how to refetch data on an interval using the RefreshButton component or any other method in Refine. You might want to check the official documentation or ask in the community for more specific guidance on this. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai Is there a different way I can refresh an entire table, rather than a specific item?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, you can refresh an entire table using the useInvalidate hook provided by Refine. This hook allows you to manually invalidate and refetch data for a specific resource. Here's an example:
import { useInvalidate } from "@refinedev/core";

const invalidate = useInvalidate();

// To invalidate the list and many states of the Posts resource
invalidate({
resource: "posts",
invalidates: ["list", "many"],
});
import { useInvalidate } from "@refinedev/core";

const invalidate = useInvalidate();

// To invalidate the list and many states of the Posts resource
invalidate({
resource: "posts",
invalidates: ["list", "many"],
});
In this example, the invalidate function is used to refresh the list and many states of the "posts" resource, which should refresh your entire table if it's displaying data from this resource. source (https://refine.dev/docs/faq) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai The network tab isn't showing a response when invalidate is called. Does it only invalidate the data, or does it refetch it as well? If not, how can i get the data to be refetched?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The useInvalidate hook in Refine invalidates the state of a particular resource or dataProvider. This means it marks the data as outdated, which should trigger a refetch of the data the next time it's accessed. However, it doesn't directly cause a network request to refetch the data. If you want to manually trigger a refetch of the data, you can use the refetch function provided by the data-related hooks in Refine, such as useTable, useForm, and useShow. Here's an example:
import { useTable, useForm, useShow } from "@refinedev/core";

// All "data" related hooks provided by Refine can use queryResult' refetch function
const { tableQueryResult: { refetch } } = useTable();
const { queryResult: { refetch } } = useForm();
const { queryResult: { refetch } } = useShow();
import { useTable, useForm, useShow } from "@refinedev/core";

// All "data" related hooks provided by Refine can use queryResult' refetch function
const { tableQueryResult: { refetch } } = useTable();
const { queryResult: { refetch } } = useForm();
const { queryResult: { refetch } } = useShow();
In this example, the refetch function is used to manually trigger a refetch of the data from the useTable, useForm, and useShow hooks. This should cause a network request to fetch the new data. source (https://refine.dev/docs/faq) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai Does useList have an equivalent function to tableQueryResult?
kapa.ai
kapa.ai11mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, the useList hook in Refine does return a queryResult object, which is similar to the tableQueryResult returned by the useTable hook. The queryResult object includes the data and some functions to control the query, such as refetch to manually trigger a refetch of the data. Here's an example of how you might use it:
import { useList } from "@refinedev/core";

const { queryResult } = useList({ resource: "posts" });

// You can then use queryResult.refetch to manually refetch the data
queryResult.refetch();
import { useList } from "@refinedev/core";

const { queryResult } = useList({ resource: "posts" });

// You can then use queryResult.refetch to manually refetch the data
queryResult.refetch();
In this example, the useList hook is used to fetch data from the "posts" resource, and the refetch function is used to manually trigger a refetch of the data. source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/hooks/data/useList/) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai I'm getting the issue Property 'queryResult' does not exist on type 'QueryObserverResult'
kapa.ai
kapa.ai11mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The useList hook returns a queryResponse object, not queryResult. The queryResponse object is of type QueryObserverResult, which includes the data and some functions to control the query, such as refetch to manually trigger a refetch of the data. Here's how you can use it:
import { useList } from "@pankod/refine";

const { data, refetch } = useList({ resource: "posts" });

// You can then use refetch to manually refetch the data
refetch();
import { useList } from "@pankod/refine";

const { data, refetch } = useList({ resource: "posts" });

// You can then use refetch to manually refetch the data
refetch();
In this example, the useList hook is used to fetch data from the "posts" resource, and the refetch function is used to manually trigger a refetch of the data. source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/hooks/data/useList/) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Got this solved; for anyone backsearching in the future -- 1. getting that refresh button; get the refetch function as kapa.ai suggested / in documentation here (https://refine.dev/docs/faq/#how-can-i-refetch-data) 2. refreshing multiple tables at once; just call both refetches in onClick's function ex. <Button icon={<RedoOutlined spin={isFetching || isFetchingActivity}/>} onClick={() => {refetch(); refetchActivity()}}>Refresh</Button> 3. useEffect's setInterval, calling refetch inside of it
