Localize datetime from Strapi data

Hello, i used the tool online downloading an example for my project next.js + strapiv4+materialui I could connect refine to my strapi environment, i added a page related to a strapi table. I also added the it (italian) language to refine and i selected it. Now i expect to see date/datetime field formatted in Italian way so dd/MM/yyyy or something like that, instead of this i see Date like MM/dd/yyyy How should I solve this?

Hi @atti_effe. 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. The provided extracts do not contain specific information about date/datetime field formatting in refine, especially in relation to localization or language settings. However, refine does support internationalization (i18n), which might be related to your issue. You might need to check the documentation or community resources for more specific information on how to format date/datetime fields according to a specific locale in refine. Here are some useful links: - Refine's data provider documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/core/providers/data-provider/) - Refine's Strapi V4 support documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/data-providers/strapi-v4) - Refine's official page (https://refine.dev/) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai can i ask about i18n?
kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Of course, you can ask about i18n (internationalization) in refine. Refine provides an i18nProvider that allows you to add multiple language choices to your web application. The default language of refine is English, but you can include and use your own translation in the project for different language preferences. An i18nProvider must have the following properties:
const i18nProvider = {
translate: (key: string, params: object) => string,
changeLocale: (lang: string) => Promise,
getLocale: () => string,
};
const i18nProvider = {
translate: (key: string, params: object) => string,
changeLocale: (lang: string) => Promise,
getLocale: () => string,
};
Refine uses these methods via translation hooks (https://refine.dev/docs/core/hooks/translate/useTranslate/). After creating an i18nProvider, you can pass it to the <Refine> component:
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import i18nProvider from "./i18nProvider";

const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Refine
i18nProvider={i18nProvider}
/* ... */
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
);
};
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import i18nProvider from "./i18nProvider";

const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Refine
i18nProvider={i18nProvider}
/* ... */
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
);
};
This will allow you to put translation features to the following hooks: - useTranslate (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/hooks/translate/useTranslate/) shows translation between different languages. - useSetLocale (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/hooks/translate/useSetLocale/) changes locale at runtime. - useGetLocale (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/hooks/translate/useGetLocale/) getting the current locale. For more details, you can refer to the Refine i18nProvider documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/core/providers/i18n-provider/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai i need to understand why when taking data from strapi v4 my Date field are not formatted following my locale settings
kapa.ai
kapa.ai10mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Based on the provided extracts, refine supports the features that come with Strapi-v4, including locale settings. However, the extracts do not provide specific information on how date fields are formatted according to locale settings when data is fetched from Strapi-v4. The meta feature in refine allows you to fetch data according to the parameters you want, including locale. However, it's not clear from the extracts whether this includes date formatting. Here's an example of how meta is used with locale:
const { tableProps, sorter } = useTable<IPost>({
meta: {
fields: ["id", "title", "publishedAt", "locale"],
populate: ["category"],
locale,
publicationState,
},
});
const { tableProps, sorter } = useTable<IPost>({
meta: {
fields: ["id", "title", "publishedAt", "locale"],
populate: ["category"],
locale,
publicationState,
},
});
In this example, locale is used as a parameter in the meta object. However, it's not specified how this affects date formatting. For more specific information on how to format date fields according to a specific locale in refine with Strapi-v4, you might need to check the documentation or community resources. Here are some useful links: - Refine's data provider documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/core/providers/data-provider/) - Refine's Strapi V4 support documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/data-providers/strapi-v4) - Refine's official page (https://refine.dev/) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

is it possible tu specify date format using DateField? @kapa.ai is it possible tu specify date format using DateField?
kapa.ai
kapa.ai10mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, it is possible to specify the date format using the DateField component in refine. The DateField component uses the Day.js library to display dates and you can specify the format you want by passing a format prop to the DateField component. Here's an example of how to use it:
<DateField format="LLL" value={row.createdAt} />
<DateField format="LLL" value={row.createdAt} />
In this example, the format prop is set to "LLL", which is a format string recognized by Day.js. You can replace "LLL" with any format string that Day.js recognizes to display the date in the format you want. For more information on the DateField component and the Day.js library, you can refer to the following links: - Refine's DateField documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/components/fields/date) - Day.js's format documentation (https://day.js.org/docs/en/display/format) ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai how to include dayjs on my project?
kapa.ai
kapa.ai10mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To include Day.js in your project, you can install it via npm or yarn. Here are the commands you need to run in your terminal: Using npm:
npm install dayjs
npm install dayjs
Using yarn:
yarn add dayjs
yarn add dayjs
After installing, you can import it in your JavaScript or TypeScript file like this:
import dayjs from 'dayjs';
import dayjs from 'dayjs';
Now you can use dayjs to manipulate and format dates in your project. For more information on how to use Day.js, you can refer to the Day.js documentation (https://day.js.org/docs/en/display/format). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Hello @atti_effe you can format MUI date pickers like this https://mui.com/x/react-date-pickers/date-field/#customize-the-date-format
React Date Field component - MUI X
The Date Field component lets the user select a date with the keyboard.
