Autocomplete return id

Iam using a lot of Autocomplete component in the form I made a custom component for that and reusing everywhere. but in every field, I want to submit the id of the object that are passed as options to it. so instead of modifying submit function in every form is the any way to handle this in the Autocomplete component itself

Hi @alfaz_muhammed. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Yes, you can handle this in the Autocomplete component itself by using the useAutocomplete hook provided by Refine. This hook allows you to define the resource and the default value for the Autocomplete component. Here is an example of how you can use it:
import { useAutocomplete } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { Autocomplete, TextField } from "@mui/material";

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

const PostCreate: React.FC = () => {
const { autocompleteProps } = useAutocomplete<ICategory>({
resource: "categories",
defaultValue: 11,
});

return (
<Autocomplete
{...autocompleteProps}
getOptionLabel={(item) => item.title}
isOptionEqualToValue={(option, value) =>
value === undefined || option?.id?.toString() === (value?.id ?? value)?.toString()
}
placeholder="Select a category"
renderInput={(params) => (
<TextField
{...params}
label="Category"
margin="normal"
variant="outlined"
required
/>
)}
/>
);
};
import { useAutocomplete } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { Autocomplete, TextField } from "@mui/material";

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

const PostCreate: React.FC = () => {
const { autocompleteProps } = useAutocomplete<ICategory>({
resource: "categories",
defaultValue: 11,
});

return (
<Autocomplete
{...autocompleteProps}
getOptionLabel={(item) => item.title}
isOptionEqualToValue={(option, value) =>
value === undefined || option?.id?.toString() === (value?.id ?? value)?.toString()
}
placeholder="Select a category"
renderInput={(params) => (
<TextField
{...params}
label="Category"
margin="normal"
variant="outlined"
required
/>
)}
/>
);
};
In this example, the useAutocomplete hook is used to fetch the data from the "categories" resource and set the default value to 11. The getOptionLabel prop is used to display the title of each option, and the isOptionEqualToValue prop is used to determine if an option is selected based on its id. This way, you can reuse this Autocomplete component in different parts of your application and it will always submit the id of the selected option. For more information, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/hooks/useAutocomplete). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai which part is handling always submit the id of the selected option here

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The part that ensures the id of the selected option is always submitted is handled by the useAutocomplete hook and the isOptionEqualToValue prop in the Autocomplete component. The useAutocomplete hook fetches the data from the specified resource and provides the necessary props for the Autocomplete component:
const { autocompleteProps } = useAutocomplete<ICategory>({
resource: "categories",
defaultValue: 11,
});
const { autocompleteProps } = useAutocomplete<ICategory>({
resource: "categories",
defaultValue: 11,
});
The isOptionEqualToValue prop in the Autocomplete component is used to determine if an option is selected based on its id:
isOptionEqualToValue={(option, value) =>
value === undefined || option?.id?.toString() === (value?.id ?? value)?.toString()
}
isOptionEqualToValue={(option, value) =>
value === undefined || option?.id?.toString() === (value?.id ?? value)?.toString()
}
This function compares the id of each option with the current value. If they are equal, it means that the option is selected and its id will be submitted when the form is submitted. For more information, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/hooks/useAutocomplete). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai I checked isOptionEqualToValue={(option, value) =>
value === undefined || option?.id?.toString() === (value?.id ?? value)?.toString()
}
this code checking if it is true based on this but doesn't seem to submit the data with id

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The isOptionEqualToValue prop is used to determine if an option is selected based on its id. However, it doesn't handle the submission of the id. It's used to check if the option is equal to the value for the purpose of highlighting the selected option in the UI. To submit the id of the selected option, you would typically handle this in the form submission logic. When the form is submitted, you would extract the id from the selected option and include it in the form data. If you want to handle this within the Autocomplete component itself, you could consider using the onChange prop of the Autocomplete component to update a state variable or form field with the id of the selected option. Here's a basic example:
const [selectedId, setSelectedId] = useState(null);

<Autocomplete
{...autocompleteProps}
onChange={(event, value) => setSelectedId(value?.id)}
// other props...
/>
const [selectedId, setSelectedId] = useState(null);

<Autocomplete
{...autocompleteProps}
onChange={(event, value) => setSelectedId(value?.id)}
// other props...
/>
In this example, whenever an option is selected, the onChange handler is called, and it updates the selectedId state variable with the id of the selected option. You can then include selectedId in the form data when the form is submitted. Please note that this is a general approach and might need to be adjusted based on your specific use case and form handling logic. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
