Hi @viveksingh0143. 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 add custom buttons to the header of the Create, Edit, or List pages using the headerButtons property. This property accepts React.ReactNode or a render function, which you can use to keep the existing buttons and add your own. Here's how you can do it: For Create Page:
import { Create } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostCreate: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Create
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Create>
);
};
import { Create } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostCreate: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Create
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Create>
);
};
Source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/antd/components/basic-views/create/) For Edit Page:
import { Edit, ListButton, RefreshButton } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
headerButtons={({ refreshButtonProps, listButtonProps }) => (
<>
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
<RefreshButton
{...refreshButtonProps}
meta={{ foo: "bar" }}
/>
{listButtonProps && (
<ListButton
{...listButtonProps}
meta={{ foo: "bar" }}
/>
)}
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};
import { Edit, ListButton, RefreshButton } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostEdit: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Edit
headerButtons={({ refreshButtonProps, listButtonProps }) => (
<>
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
<RefreshButton
{...refreshButtonProps}
meta={{ foo: "bar" }}
/>
{listButtonProps && (
<ListButton
{...listButtonProps}
meta={{ foo: "bar" }}
/>
)}
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</Edit>
);
};
Source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/antd/components/basic-views/edit/) For List Page:
import { List } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostList: React.FC = () => {
return (
<List
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</List>
);
};
import { List } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostList: React.FC = () => {
return (
<List
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</List>
);
};
Source (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/antd/components/basic-views/list/) Please note that if the "list" resource is not defined, the ListButton will not render and listButtonProps will be undefined. Similarly, if the "create" resource is not defined or if canCreate is false, the CreateButton will not render and createButtonProps will be undefined. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai can we extend the List component as the create button will render when we mention canCreate at meta tag, similarly can we define export functionality to every list page using something similar like canExport

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, you can extend the List component to include an export button. You can use the useExport hook provided by refine to add export functionality to your application. This hook can be used to turn any button into an export button. Here's an example of how you can add an export button to your list page:
import { useExport } from "@refinedev/core";

export const PostList: React.FC = () => {
const { triggerExport } = useExport<IPost>();

return (
<div>
<button onClick={triggerExport}>Export Button</button>
...
</div>
);
};
import { useExport } from "@refinedev/core";

export const PostList: React.FC = () => {
const { triggerExport } = useExport<IPost>();

return (
<div>
<button onClick={triggerExport}>Export Button</button>
...
</div>
);
};
In this example, when the user clicks the button, the download process will initialize. You can also manually run the triggerExport function. useExport returns two properties: isLoading: boolean and triggerExport: async () => void. You can use these properties to create your own export button or pass them to the ExportButton component. However, there's no built-in canExport functionality similar to canCreate in refine. If you want to conditionally render the export button based on some criteria, you would need to implement that logic yourself. For more detailed information and export settings, you can refer to the useExport docs (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/hooks/import-export/useExport/).
