Hi @Griyan. 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 see the form fields value that has been filled before submitting. You can use the handleSubmit method from the useForm hook to create a function that logs the form data to the console. Here's an example:
const {
control,
handleSubmit,
watch,
formState: { errors },
} = useForm <IFormValue>
{
mode: "onChange",
defaultValues,
resolver: yupResolver(schema),
};

const handleSubmission = (data: IFormValue) => console.log(data);
const {
control,
handleSubmit,
watch,
formState: { errors },
} = useForm <IFormValue>
{
mode: "onChange",
defaultValues,
resolver: yupResolver(schema),
};

const handleSubmission = (data: IFormValue) => console.log(data);
Then, you can add an onSubmit event handler to the form and pass the handleSubmit method and handleSubmission function to it:
<form
onSubmit={handleSubmit(handleSubmission)}
style={{ display: "flex", flexDirection: "column" }}
>
...
</form>
<form
onSubmit={handleSubmit(handleSubmission)}
style={{ display: "flex", flexDirection: "column" }}
>
...
</form>
Now, when you fill in the fields and submit the form, you should get a logged object of the form’s data in your console. For more information, you can refer to the React Hook Form Validation with Complete Examples (https://refine.dev/blog/react-hook-form-validation-examples/) blog post. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

im using useForm from this package @refinedev/antd @kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- In the @refinedev/antd package, the useForm hook doesn't directly provide a way to log the form data before submission. However, you can use the onValuesChange prop of the Ant Design Form component to log the form data whenever a field value changes. Here's an example:
import { Edit, useForm } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Form, Input, Select } from "antd";

export const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const { formProps, saveButtonProps } = useForm<IPost>();

return (
<Edit saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}>
<Form {...formProps} layout="vertical" onValuesChange={(changedValues, allValues) => console.log(allValues)}>
<Form.Item label="Title" name="title">
<Input />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item label="Status" name="status">
<Select
options={[
{
label: "Published",
value: "published",
},
{
label: "Draft",
value: "draft",
},
{
label: "Rejected",
value: "rejected",
},
]}
/>
</Form.Item>
</Form>
</Edit>
);
};

interface IPost {
id: number;
title: string;
status: "published" | "draft" | "rejected";
}
import { Edit, useForm } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Form, Input, Select } from "antd";

export const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
const { formProps, saveButtonProps } = useForm<IPost>();

return (
<Edit saveButtonProps={saveButtonProps}>
<Form {...formProps} layout="vertical" onValuesChange={(changedValues, allValues) => console.log(allValues)}>
<Form.Item label="Title" name="title">
<Input />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item label="Status" name="status">
<Select
options={[
{
label: "Published",
value: "published",
},
{
label: "Draft",
value: "draft",
},
{
label: "Rejected",
value: "rejected",
},
]}
/>
</Form.Item>
</Form>
</Edit>
);
};

interface IPost {
id: number;
title: string;
status: "published" | "draft" | "rejected";
}
In this example, the onValuesChange prop is used to log the form data whenever a field value changes. The allValues parameter contains all the current form data. For more information, you can refer to the useForm documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/antd/hooks/form/useForm/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

how to get fields value if the data is inside an object of an object how to get fields value if the data is inside an object of an object @kapa.ai
kapa.ai
kapa.ai8mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- If the data is nested within an object of an object, you can access it using dot notation or bracket notation. For example, if you have a data object like this:
const data = {
user: {
name: "John Doe",
address: {
street: "123 Main St",
city: "Springfield",
country: "USA"
}
}
}
const data = {
user: {
name: "John Doe",
address: {
street: "123 Main St",
city: "Springfield",
country: "USA"
}
}
}
You can access the street field like this:
console.log(data.user.address.street); // Outputs: 123 Main St
console.log(data.user.address.street); // Outputs: 123 Main St
Or like this:
console.log(data["user"]["address"]["street"]); // Outputs: 123 Main St
console.log(data["user"]["address"]["street"]); // Outputs: 123 Main St
If you're dealing with form data, you can use the same approach to get the value of a specific field. For example, if you're using the onValuesChange prop of the Ant Design Form component to log the form data, you can get the value of a specific field like this:
<Form {...formProps} layout="vertical" onValuesChange={(changedValues, allValues) => console.log(allValues.user.address.street)}>
<Form {...formProps} layout="vertical" onValuesChange={(changedValues, allValues) => console.log(allValues.user.address.street)}>
This will log the value of the street field whenever it changes. For more information, you can refer to the JavaScript object documentation (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Guide/Working_with_Objects) on MDN. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

can it be like getFieldsValue(user.address.street) can it be like getFieldsValue(user.address.street) @kapa.ai
kapa.ai
kapa.ai8mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- In Ant Design's Form, the getFieldsValue method can be used to get the values of all fields or specified fields. However, it doesn't support dot notation for nested fields. If you want to get the value of a nested field, you need to get the value of the parent field first, and then access the nested field from the returned object. Here's an example:
const { getFieldsValue } = formProps;
const userData = getFieldsValue(['user']);
console.log(userData.user.address.street);
const { getFieldsValue } = formProps;
const userData = getFieldsValue(['user']);
console.log(userData.user.address.street);
In this example, getFieldsValue(['user']) is used to get the value of the user field, which is an object that includes the address field. Then, userData.user.address.street is used to access the street field from the returned object. For more information, you can refer to the getFieldsValue documentation (https://ant.design/components/form/#FormInstance) on the Ant Design website. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

is there any way to validate for an input to be filled if the input before it is already filled first? @kapa.ai
kapa.ai
kapa.ai8mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, you can achieve this by using conditional validation with Yup, which is a JavaScript schema builder for value parsing and validation. In the validation schema, you can use the when method to add a condition to a field. The when method allows you to change the validation schema of a field based on the value of another field. Here's an example:
const schema = Yup.object().shape({
field1: Yup.string()
.required('This field is required'),
field2: Yup.string().when(
"field1",
(field1: string, schema: Yup.StringSchema) => {
return field1 ? schema.required('This field is required') : schema
}
),
});
const schema = Yup.object().shape({
field1: Yup.string()
.required('This field is required'),
field2: Yup.string().when(
"field1",
(field1: string, schema: Yup.StringSchema) => {
return field1 ? schema.required('This field is required') : schema
}
),
});
In this example, field2 is required only if field1 is filled. If field1 is not filled, field2 is not required. For more information, you can refer to the React Hook Form Validation with Complete Examples (https://refine.dev/blog/react-hook-form-validation-examples/) blog post. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
