DataGridPro filtering issue

Hello, I'm using DataGridPro with server side pagination, sorting, and filtering,
<DataGridPro
{...dataGridProps}
slotProps={{
filterPanel: {
logicOperators: [GridLogicOperator.And]
}
}}
filterModel={undefined}
pagination
pageSizeOptions={[25, 50, 100]}
columns={columns}
autoHeight
/>
<DataGridPro
{...dataGridProps}
slotProps={{
filterPanel: {
logicOperators: [GridLogicOperator.And]
}
}}
filterModel={undefined}
pagination
pageSizeOptions={[25, 50, 100]}
columns={columns}
autoHeight
/>
I haven't created my own data provider, I'm using the default, and I'm noticing peculiar behavior when I'm trying to use the DataGidPro filter. When I try to filter using the "equals" operator, the url looks like this:
http://localhost:3000/test?pageSize=25&current=1&filters[0][field]=transactionId&filters[0][value]=IJ8956&filters[0][operator]=eq
http://localhost:3000/test?pageSize=25&current=1&filters[0][field]=transactionId&filters[0][value]=IJ8956&filters[0][operator]=eq
But in my backend REST server, my req.query looks like this
{ _end: '25', _start: '0', transactionId: 'IJ8956' }
{ _end: '25', _start: '0', transactionId: 'IJ8956' }
If I use the "contains" operator, I get this in the URL:
http://localhost:3000/test?pageSize=25&current=1&filters[0][field]=transactionId&filters[0][value]=IJ8956&filters[0][operator]=contains
http://localhost:3000/test?pageSize=25&current=1&filters[0][field]=transactionId&filters[0][value]=IJ8956&filters[0][operator]=contains
I get this in my req.query:
{ _end: '25', _start: '0', transactionId_like: 'IJ8956' }
{ _end: '25', _start: '0', transactionId_like: 'IJ8956' }
Also, if i try to use the "is empty" operator, my URL looks like this:
http://localhost:3000/test?pageSize=25&current=1
http://localhost:3000/test?pageSize=25&current=1
and my req.query:
{ _end: '25', _start: '0' }
{ _end: '25', _start: '0' }
here is what the column looks like for the specific example:
{
field: "transactionId",
headerName: "Invoice ID",
headerAlign: "center",
align: "center",
minWidth: 80,
},
{
field: "transactionId",
headerName: "Invoice ID",
headerAlign: "center",
align: "center",
minWidth: 80,
},

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: ---------------------- Hmm, I don't know enough to give you a confident answer yet. However, I can tell you that the behavior you're observing might be due to how the default data provider in Refine handles filtering. The default data provider might be translating the "equals" operator into a direct query parameter and the "contains" operator into a "_like" query parameter. For the "is empty" operator, it seems like the data provider might not be adding any query parameters, which could explain why you're not seeing any in your req.query. You might want to consider creating a custom data provider that handles these operators in a way that's more suitable for your backend REST server. You can refer to the Refine documentation on data providers (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/providers/data-provider) for more information on how to do this. Please note that this is just a hypothesis based on the information provided in the extracts. For a more accurate answer, you might want to refer to the Refine community (https://refine.dev/docs/community/) or Refine GitHub (https://github.com/pankod/refine) for help. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai is there a way I can manipulate the URL and filters with refine? Maybe I can create custom filters with DataGridPro using the filterOperators property on columns with a custom getApplyFilterFn? I would just need to know if there are any functions with refine that can help
kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, you can manipulate the URL and filters with Refine. Refine provides a useDataGrid hook that you can use to control the filtering behavior of your DataGrid component. This hook provides a setFilters function that you can use to set a filter state. The function accepts three properties to filter the table: field, operator, and value (source (https://refine.dev/blog/mui-datagrid-refine)). Here's an example of how you can use the setFilters function:
const { dataGridProps, setFilters } = useDataGrid();

const handleFilter = (
e: React.ChangeEvent<HTMLInputElement>,
checked: boolean
) => {
setFilters([
{
field: 'role',
value: checked ? 'Recruiter' : undefined,
operator: 'eq',
},
]);
};
const { dataGridProps, setFilters } = useDataGrid();

const handleFilter = (
e: React.ChangeEvent<HTMLInputElement>,
checked: boolean
) => {
setFilters([
{
field: 'role',
value: checked ? 'Recruiter' : undefined,
operator: 'eq',
},
]);
};
You can also control the default behavior of the setFilters function by using the filters.defaultBehavior property of the useDataGrid hook. This property can be set to either "merge" or "replace", which determines whether the new filter will be merged with or replace the existing filters (source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/hooks/useDataGrid)).
useDataGrid({
filters: {
defaultBehavior: "replace",
},
});
useDataGrid({
filters: {
defaultBehavior: "replace",
},
});
As for creating custom filters with DataGridPro, you might want to refer to the DataGridPro documentation (https://mui.com/components/data-grid/filtering/#creating-custom-filters) for more information. The filterOperators property on columns and the getApplyFilterFn function could potentially be used to create custom filters, but this would likely involve extending the functionality of DataGridPro rather than Refine. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai Actually I'm not sure if this is a decent solution, it seems rather involved. Do you have any other suggestions?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, Refine provides a syncWithLocation property that allows you to edit query parameters manually and share the current page, items count per page, sort, and filter parameters easily with others. This property can be used to sync the filtering state with the URL (source (https://refine.dev/blog/build-admin-panel-with-material-ui-and-strapi)). Here's an example of how you can use the syncWithLocation property:
function App() {
return (
<ThemeProvider theme={LightTheme}>
<CssBaseline />
<GlobalStyles styles={{ html: { WebkitFontSmoothing: "auto" } }} />
<RefineSnackbarProvider>
<Refine
...
options={{
mutationMode: "undoable",
syncWithLocation: true
}}
/>
</RefineSnackbarProvider>
</ThemeProvider>
);
}

export default App;
function App() {
return (
<ThemeProvider theme={LightTheme}>
<CssBaseline />
<GlobalStyles styles={{ html: { WebkitFontSmoothing: "auto" } }} />
<RefineSnackbarProvider>
<Refine
...
options={{
mutationMode: "undoable",
syncWithLocation: true
}}
/>
</RefineSnackbarProvider>
</ThemeProvider>
);
}

export default App;
With syncWithLocation enabled, you can get the current information from the URL as query parameters. You can either use this link to share with others or define filter, pagination, and sorting parameters manually by changing the URL parameters. However, please note that if syncWithLocation is enabled, on page refresh filter values will be of type string since they will be parsed from the URL. This might produce some incompatibility if data for the filter input comes from an API and it's not of type string (source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/antd/components/filter-dropdown)). If you need more control over the URL and query parameters, you might want to consider using the useParsed hook provided by Refine. This hook leverages the parse method of the routerProvider to access the URL and query parameters along with the inferred resource, action, and id from the URL (source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/hooks/navigation/useParsed)). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai can you point me to the source code for the default data provider so I can see what it's doing with the queries? Can I find it in the repo somewhere?
kapa.ai
kapa.ai10mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, you can find the source code for the default data provider in the Refine GitHub repository. The default data provider is called refine-simple-rest and its source code can be found here (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/tree/next/packages/simple-rest). This will give you a detailed view of how the default data provider handles queries, including how it translates filter operators into query parameters. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai it's here in refine/packages/simple-rest/src/utils/mapOperator.ts
import { CrudOperators } from "@refinedev/core";

export const mapOperator = (operator: CrudOperators): string => {
switch (operator) {
case "ne":
case "gte":
case "lte":
return `_${operator}`;
case "contains":
return "_like";
case "eq":
default:
return "";
}
};
import { CrudOperators } from "@refinedev/core";

export const mapOperator = (operator: CrudOperators): string => {
switch (operator) {
case "ne":
case "gte":
case "lte":
return `_${operator}`;
case "contains":
return "_like";
case "eq":
default:
return "";
}
};
kapa.ai
kapa.ai10mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, you've found the correct file. This mapOperator function is used by the refine-simple-rest data provider to map the filter operators used in Refine to the corresponding query parameters used by the REST API. Here's how it works: - If the operator is "ne", "gte", or "lte", it prepends an underscore to the operator. This translates to "_ne", "_gte", and "_lte" respectively in the query parameters. - If the operator is "contains", it translates to "_like" in the query parameters. - If the operator is "eq" or any other operator not listed in the switch statement, it doesn't add anything to the query parameters. This function is used when constructing the query parameters for the API request. If you want to change how the operators are translated, you can modify this function in your own custom data provider. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai okay so for strings filters, all that's available is contains and eq (parse that in the backend) and number operators ne, gte, lte, got it. Thank you
