Hi @desithharra. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- In Refine, you can pass data from one component to another during navigation using the resource property of various button components such as ListButton, EditButton, and ShowButton. These components use the useNavigation hook to trigger different methods (list, edit, show) and redirect the app to the corresponding action path of the resource, filling the necessary parameters in the route. Here's an example of how you can use the EditButton component to navigate and pass data:
import { EditButton } from "@refinedev/mui";

const MyEditComponent = () => {
return (
<EditButton
resource="categories"
recordItemId="2"
/>
);
};
import { EditButton } from "@refinedev/mui";

const MyEditComponent = () => {
return (
<EditButton
resource="categories"
recordItemId="2"
/>
);
};
In this example, clicking the EditButton will trigger the edit method of useNavigation and then redirect the app to the edit action path of the resource "categories", with the record item id "2". If you have multiple resources with the same name, you can pass the identifier instead of the name of the resource. It will only be used as the main matching key for the resource, data provider methods will still work with the name of the resource defined in the <Refine/> component. For more information, refer to the identifier section of the <Refine/> component documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/components/refine-config/#identifier). Sources: - EditButton Documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/components/buttons/edit-button/) - ShowButton Documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/components/buttons/show-button/) - ListButton Documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/mui/components/buttons/list-button/) ---------------------- 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: ---------------------- The useGo hook in Refine allows you to perform navigation operations. While it doesn't directly support passing data between components, you can use it to navigate to different paths and pass query parameters in the URL. These query parameters can then be read by the component you navigate to. Here's an example of how you can use the useGo hook to navigate and pass query parameters:
import { useGo } from "@refinedev/core";

const MyComponent = () => {
const go = useGo();

return (
<Button
onClick={() => {
go({
to: "/posts",
query: {
filters: [
{
field: "title",
operator: "contains",
value: "Refine",
},
],
},
type: "push",
});
}}
>
Go Posts With Default Filters
</Button>
);
};
import { useGo } from "@refinedev/core";

const MyComponent = () => {
const go = useGo();

return (
<Button
onClick={() => {
go({
to: "/posts",
query: {
filters: [
{
field: "title",
operator: "contains",
value: "Refine",
},
],
},
type: "push",
});
}}
>
Go Posts With Default Filters
</Button>
);
};
In this example, clicking the button will navigate to the "/posts" path and pass a "filters" query parameter in the URL. The component at the "/posts" path can then read this query parameter and use the data as needed. For more information, refer to the useGo hook documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/hooks/navigation/useGo/). ---------------------- 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: ---------------------- If you want to pass data from one component to another during navigation without using query parameters, you can use the React Context API. The Context API allows you to share data across components without using props. Here's a basic example of how you can use the Context API:
import React, { createContext, useContext } from 'react';

// Create a Context
const MyContext = createContext(null);

// Component that provides the data
const ProviderComponent = ({ children }) => {
const dataToPass = "Data to pass";

return (
<MyContext.Provider value={dataToPass}>
{children}
</MyContext.Provider>
);
};

// Component that consumes the data
const ConsumerComponent = () => {
const receivedData = useContext(MyContext);

return (
<div>
Received data: {receivedData}
</div>
);
};
import React, { createContext, useContext } from 'react';

// Create a Context
const MyContext = createContext(null);

// Component that provides the data
const ProviderComponent = ({ children }) => {
const dataToPass = "Data to pass";

return (
<MyContext.Provider value={dataToPass}>
{children}
</MyContext.Provider>
);
};

// Component that consumes the data
const ConsumerComponent = () => {
const receivedData = useContext(MyContext);

return (
<div>
Received data: {receivedData}
</div>
);
};
In this example, ProviderComponent provides the data using the MyContext.Provider component. ConsumerComponent then consumes this data using the useContext hook. You can wrap your components with the ProviderComponent to make the data available to them. Then, in the components where you need the data, you can use the useContext hook to access it. For more information, refer to the React Context API guide on the Refine blog (https://refine.dev/blog/usecontext-and-react-context/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
