Is there anyway to use different layouts for different routes?

I am using Refine with Next (app router). I know you can define your own layouts, but is it possible to have multiple routes but under the Refine component each route using its own layout, so I can still be able to use Refine hooks and components wherever I need. I hope someone can point me in the right direction for this. Some of the documentation I read through: https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/routers/nextjs/#app-directory for using app router https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/antd/components/antd-themed-layout/#usage for using themed layouts https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/routers/nextjs/#how-to-use-multiple-layouts for using multiple layouts but I am unsure how to use it inside refine for specific routes.

Hi @thats_rex. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Based on the information provided in the extracts, it is possible to use multiple layouts for different routes while still being able to use Refine hooks and components. However, the specific details on how to achieve this within the Refine component for specific routes are not provided in the extracts. In general, you would define your custom layouts and use them in your routes. For example, you could define a custom layout like this:
const CustomLayout: React.FC = ({ children }) => (
<div style={{ display: "flex", flexDirection: "column" }}>
<div>Custom Layout</div>
<div>{children}</div>
</div>
);
const CustomLayout: React.FC = ({ children }) => (
<div style={{ display: "flex", flexDirection: "column" }}>
<div>Custom Layout</div>
<div>{children}</div>
</div>
);
Then, you would use your custom layout in the Layout prop of the Refine component:
const App: React.FC = () => (
<Refine
...
Layout={({ children }) => (
<CustomLayout>{children}</CustomLayout>
)}
/>
);
const App: React.FC = () => (
<Refine
...
Layout={({ children }) => (
<CustomLayout>{children}</CustomLayout>
)}
/>
);
This will apply your custom layout to all routes in your application. If you want to use a different layout for specific routes, you can do this by defining separate routes with different layouts. However, this would require using a router, such as react-router-dom. For more detailed information, you may want to refer to the official Refine documentation or seek help from the Refine community. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

So, what I am doing right now is, in the RootLayout component, I am conditionally returning based on path name (usePathname). Hence using multiple Refine components. Now I don't know if there's a better/more elegant way to do this, and I am unsure if what I am doing is outright obscene according to more proficient developers lol, so please let me know
