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: ---------------------- The warnWhenUnsavedChanges property in the useForm hook is used to show a warning when the user tries to leave the page with unsaved changes. However, for this feature to work, it requires the onValuesChange function. If you want to override the form's onValuesChange, keep this in mind. Here is the example usage of useForm with warnWhenUnsavedChanges:
useForm({
warnWhenUnsavedChanges: true,
});
useForm({
warnWhenUnsavedChanges: true,
});
Also, this feature requires the UnsavedChangesNotifier component to be mounted. You can import this component from your router package. If you have done all these and it's still not working, there might be other issues in your code. For more information, you can refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/components/refine-config/#warnwhenunsavedchanges). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai how to do that and make it work

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To make the warnWhenUnsavedChanges property work, you need to ensure that the onValuesChange function is properly set up in your form. This function is required for the warnWhenUnsavedChanges feature to work. Here is an example of how you can use it:
useForm({
warnWhenUnsavedChanges: true,
onValuesChange: (changedValues, allValues) => {
console.log(changedValues, allValues);
},
});
useForm({
warnWhenUnsavedChanges: true,
onValuesChange: (changedValues, allValues) => {
console.log(changedValues, allValues);
},
});
In the onValuesChange function, changedValues is an object that contains the changed fields and their values, and allValues is the current form field values. Additionally, you need to ensure that the UnsavedChangesNotifier component is mounted. This component is required for the warnWhenUnsavedChanges feature to work. You can import this component from your router package. If you have done all these and it's still not working, there might be other issues in your code. For more information, you can refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/components/refine-config/#warnwhenunsavedchanges). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai how to import UnsavedChangesNotifier and make it work

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To use the UnsavedChangesNotifier component, you need to import it from your router package and place it inside the <Refine> component's children. Here's an example of how to do this in a Next.js application:
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import { UnsavedChangesNotifier } from "@refinedev/nextjs-router";

function App({ Component, pageProps }: AppProps): JSX.Element {
return (
<Refine
/* ... */
>
<Component {...pageProps} />
<UnsavedChangesNotifier />
</Refine>
);
}
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import { UnsavedChangesNotifier } from "@refinedev/nextjs-router";

function App({ Component, pageProps }: AppProps): JSX.Element {
return (
<Refine
/* ... */
>
<Component {...pageProps} />
<UnsavedChangesNotifier />
</Refine>
);
}
In this example, UnsavedChangesNotifier is imported from @refinedev/nextjs-router and placed as a child of the <Refine> component. This enables the warnWhenUnsavedChanges feature of refine, which shows a warning message when a user tries to navigate away from the current page without saving changes. Please note that the UnsavedChangesNotifier component also has optional properties translationKey and message that you can use to customize the warning message. For more information, you can refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/routers/nextjs). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai is it necessary to import it from @refinedev/nextjs-router
kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The package from which you import UnsavedChangesNotifier depends on the router you're using in your project. If you're using Next.js as your router, you should import it from @refinedev/nextjs-router as shown:
import { UnsavedChangesNotifier } from "@refinedev/nextjs-router";
import { UnsavedChangesNotifier } from "@refinedev/nextjs-router";
If you're using Remix as your router, you should import it from @refinedev/remix-router:
import { UnsavedChangesNotifier } from "@refinedev/remix-router";
import { UnsavedChangesNotifier } from "@refinedev/remix-router";
And if you're using React Router v6, you should import it from @refinedev/react-router-v6:
import { UnsavedChangesNotifier } from "@refinedev/react-router-v6";
import { UnsavedChangesNotifier } from "@refinedev/react-router-v6";
You can find more information in the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/routers/nextjs). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai I have imported but still not working when I change only my TeztFields

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The warnWhenUnsavedChanges feature in Refine should work with any form field, including TextField. If it's not working, there might be other issues in your code. Here are some steps to troubleshoot: 1. Ensure that you have set warnWhenUnsavedChanges: true in your useForm or useModalForm hook:
useForm({
warnWhenUnsavedChanges: true,
});
useForm({
warnWhenUnsavedChanges: true,
});
2. Make sure that the UnsavedChangesNotifier component is correctly imported and placed inside the <Refine> component's children:
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import { UnsavedChangesNotifier } from "@refinedev/nextjs-router"; // or your specific router package

function App({ Component, pageProps }: AppProps): JSX.Element {
return (
<Refine
/* ... */
>
<Component {...pageProps} />
<UnsavedChangesNotifier />
</Refine>
);
}
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import { UnsavedChangesNotifier } from "@refinedev/nextjs-router"; // or your specific router package

function App({ Component, pageProps }: AppProps): JSX.Element {
return (
<Refine
/* ... */
>
<Component {...pageProps} />
<UnsavedChangesNotifier />
</Refine>
);
}
3. Check if there are any errors in the console that might indicate what's going wrong. If you've done all these and it's still not working, you might want to check the rest of your code for issues or consider seeking help from the Refine community or support. For more information, you can refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/components/refine-config/#warnwhenunsavedchanges). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
