Hi @dreamer9067. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- The useTable hook in Refine is designed to work with the getList method of the data provider, which typically uses a GET request to fetch data. The information provided in the extracts does not include a way to modify useTable to use a POST request instead. However, Refine is highly customizable and it might be possible to create a custom data provider or modify the existing one to use a POST request for fetching list data. This would require a good understanding of both Refine and your backend API. For more information on how to customize data providers in Refine, you can refer to the official documentation (https://refine.dev/docs). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Sure, the useCustomMutation hook in Refine can be used to make a POST request. Here's an example from the official documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/hooks/data/useCustomMutation):
import { useCustomMutation, useApiUrl } from "@refinedev/core";

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

const apiUrl = useApiUrl();

const { mutate } = useCustomMutation<ICategory>();

mutate({
url: `${API_URL}/categories`,
method: "post",
values: {
title: "New Category",
},
});
import { useCustomMutation, useApiUrl } from "@refinedev/core";

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

const apiUrl = useApiUrl();

const { mutate } = useCustomMutation<ICategory>();

mutate({
url: `${API_URL}/categories`,
method: "post",
values: {
title: "New Category",
},
});
In this example, useCustomMutation is used to send a POST request to the /categories endpoint of the API. The mutate method is used to send the request, with the URL, HTTP method, and request body specified as parameters. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai can i swizzle useTable hook??

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Swizzling is a technique to override the default behavior of a function or a method. In the context of Refine, it would mean customizing the behavior of the useTable hook. The extracts provided do not specifically mention the ability to swizzle the useTable hook. However, Refine is built on React and it's generally possible to create custom hooks in React that wrap existing hooks and modify their behavior. Here's a general example of how you might create a custom hook that wraps useTable:
import { useTable as useBaseTable } from "@refinedev/core";

function useCustomTable(...args) {
const table = useBaseTable(...args);

// Modify the table object or add additional logic here

return table;
}
import { useTable as useBaseTable } from "@refinedev/core";

function useCustomTable(...args) {
const table = useBaseTable(...args);

// Modify the table object or add additional logic here

return table;
}
In this example, useCustomTable wraps useBaseTable (which is the original useTable hook from Refine). You can add additional logic inside useCustomTable to modify the behavior of useTable. Please note that this is a general example and might not work out of the box depending on your specific requirements. For more information on customizing hooks in Refine, you can refer to the official documentation (https://refine.dev/docs). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Can you swizzle your dataProvider after that you can send meta to change your http request method. For example you can check out this: https://refine.dev/docs/tutorial/understanding-dataprovider/create-dataprovider/#meta-usage
