Updating a related property using useUpdate hook

I'm currently working on a project and I want to use Refine's powerful useUpdate hook. Specifically, I'm facing a challenge where I need to update a specific property in a related table called let's say "related-things." I'm using PostgreSQL as my database and Prisma as the ORM. I am also using the default data provider (I did not create my own data provider) Here's the scenario: I have a table named let's say "things" and within that, I need to update a property in the related "related-things" table. My aim is to leverage the useUpdate hook to accomplish this, but I'm unsure about the best approach. I would greatly appreciate your guidance on how to effectively utilize the useUpdate hook in this context. If you could provide me with code examples, step-by-step instructions, or recommended resources, it would be immensely helpful in overcoming this challenge. Thank you in advance for your support

Hi @darshan_sandhu. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- The useUpdate hook in Refine is a powerful tool for updating records in your application. It is an extended version of TanStack Query's useMutation that supports all of its features and adds some more. It uses the update method as the mutation function from the dataProvider which is passed to <Refine>. Here's a basic usage example of the useUpdate hook:
import { useUpdate } from "@refinedev/core";

const { mutate } = useUpdate();

mutate({
resource: "products",
values: {
name: "New Product",
material: "Wood",
},
id: 1,
});
import { useUpdate } from "@refinedev/core";

const { mutate } = useUpdate();

mutate({
resource: "products",
values: {
name: "New Product",
material: "Wood",
},
id: 1,
});
In this example, mutate is a method returned by useUpdate which expects values, resource, and id as parameters. These parameters will be passed to the update method from the dataProvider as parameters. In your case, you want to update a property in a related table "related-things". You would need to pass "related-things" as the resource parameter and the values you want to update in the values parameter. The id parameter would be the id of the record you want to update in the "related-things" table. However, it's important to note that the actual implementation of the update method depends on your dataProvider. If you're using the default data provider, you might need to customize it to handle updates on related tables. For more information on creating a data provider, you can refer to the creating a data provider tutorial (https://refine.dev/docs/tutorial/understanding-dataprovider/create-dataprovider/). Please note that the information provided is based on the extracts given and might not cover all aspects of your specific use case. For more detailed information, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai so the best approach would be to create a resource for "related-things" and access that directly as a resource for the useUpdate hook? Also, can you show me how to hide a resource from the sidebar

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, creating a resource for "related-things" and using that directly with the useUpdate hook would be a good approach. This way, you can directly update the properties of the "related-things" table. As for hiding a resource from the sidebar, unfortunately, the provided extracts do not contain specific information on how to hide a resource from the sidebar in Refine. However, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs) for more detailed information and instructions. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai Just to clarify, is it recommended to create the "related-things" resource? Am I unable to access the related data directly from the "things" table? Adding more context, I have a DatagridPro component that utilizes the "things" table. It also includes a getDetailPanelContent function that displays the related table in another DataGridPro. What I want to achieve is the ability to press a button within this related content, trigger a property change, and have the "things" table automatically refetch and display the updated data.

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Based on the provided extracts, creating a separate resource for "related-things" could be beneficial if you need to perform CRUD operations directly on that resource. However, it's not explicitly stated that you can't access related data directly from the "things" table. The actual implementation would depend on your data provider and how it handles related data. As for your scenario with the DatagridPro component, you can use the useUpdate hook to trigger a property change when a button is clicked. After the update, you can use the useQuery hook to refetch the "things" table and display the updated data. Here's a basic example:
import { useUpdate, useQuery } from "@refinedev/core";

const { mutate } = useUpdate();
const { refetch } = useQuery();

const handleButtonClick = async () => {
await mutate({
resource: "related-things",
values: {
// your updated values
},
id: 1, // the id of the record you want to update
});

refetch();
};
import { useUpdate, useQuery } from "@refinedev/core";

const { mutate } = useUpdate();
const { refetch } = useQuery();

const handleButtonClick = async () => {
await mutate({
resource: "related-things",
values: {
// your updated values
},
id: 1, // the id of the record you want to update
});

refetch();
};
In this example, handleButtonClick is a function that is called when the button is clicked. It first calls mutate to update the "related-things" resource, then calls refetch to refetch the "things" table. Please note that this is a simplified example and might not cover all aspects of your specific use case. For more detailed information, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai I am using the default data provider, so maybe I'm only limted to creating a new resource? Is there a way to access related data with useUpdate using the default data provider? Also, I'm using useDataGrid for the parent DataGridPro, is there something in there that I can use to refetch?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Based on the provided extracts, the useUpdate hook in Refine uses the update method from the dataProvider to update a record. The update method updates the record with the resource, id, and variables parameters.
const { mutate } = useUpdate();

mutate({
resource: "categories",
});
const { mutate } = useUpdate();

mutate({
resource: "categories",
});
In this example, "categories" is the resource parameter which is usually used as an API endpoint path. This suggests that you can pass the name of the related table ("related-things") as the resource parameter to update a record in the related table. However, the actual implementation of the update method depends on your dataProvider. If you're using the default data provider, it might not support updating related data directly from the "things" table. You might need to create a separate resource for "related-things" and use that as the resource parameter. As for refetching data in the DataGridPro component, the provided extracts do not contain specific information on how to do this.

@kapa.ai in order to use the useUpdate hook for my purposes, do i only need to create the list:'/related-things' endpoint and the edit:'/related-things/edit/:id endpoints in my resource?
