Add custom menu item in ThemedSiderV2

I want to customize my menu item using the Sider.tsx file that generated using Swizzle (ThemedSiderV2) so that: 1. I can include "create" action resource in the sider (which Refine doesn't have) 2. Implement all the existing functionalities of the sider like the template 3. My customization can either achieve by changing the Refine default library to allow "create" "edit" action resource to be included in the menu item in the Sider, or merging my array of custom menu items into menuItems of useMenu so Sider.tsx can perform any modification it's needed

Hi @lukevo.. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- You can customize the Sider component in Refine to include a "create" action resource. This can be achieved by creating a custom Sider component and using the render property of the <Sider> component to customize its content. The render property is a function that receives an object with the items and logout properties. The items property is the list of navigation items and the logout property is the logout button. Here's an example of how you can do it:
import { Layout, Sider } from "@refinedev/antd";

const CustomSider = () => {
return (
<Sider
render={({ items, logout }) => {
return (
<>
{items}
<a href="/orders/create">Create Order</a>
{logout}
</>
);
}}
/>
);
};

const CustomLayout = () => {
return <Layout Sider={CustomSider}>...</Layout>;
};
import { Layout, Sider } from "@refinedev/antd";

const CustomSider = () => {
return (
<Sider
render={({ items, logout }) => {
return (
<>
{items}
<a href="/orders/create">Create Order</a>
{logout}
</>
);
}}
/>
);
};

const CustomLayout = () => {
return <Layout Sider={CustomSider}>...</Layout>;
};
In this example, a new navigation link "Create Order" is added to the Sider. When clicked, it will redirect to the create page of the "orders" resource. You might need to adjust this example according to your needs. For instance, you might want to style the new navigation link to make it look like the other items, or add some logic to only show it to certain users source (https://discord.com/channels/837692625737613362/1141901837738442935). You can also use the swizzle command to export the Sider component from the refine package and customize the rendered items as you like according to some state or anything source (https://discord.com/channels/837692625737613362/1068186486618468352). For role-based menu items, you can use the useCan hook or the <CanAccess /> component to check if the user has the required permissions to view specific menu items source (https://discord.com/channels/837692625737613362/1121423983812812810). For more detailed examples and instructions, you can refer to the Custom Sider example (https://refine.dev/docs/examples/customization/customSider/) in the Refine documentation. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
