Hi @tarang._. 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 seems like you're experiencing an issue with boolean values in a form, where the value changes to "error" from true/false when the form renders. In refine, the useForm hook is typically used to manage form data. If you're using a checkbox or a switch for boolean values, you might need to set the valuePropName to "checked" in the Form.Item component. Here's an example:
<Form.Item
label="Active"
name="Active"
valuePropName="checked"
>
<Checkbox />
</Form.Item>
<Form.Item
label="Active"
name="Active"
valuePropName="checked"
>
<Checkbox />
</Form.Item>
If the checkbox is not checked and the form is submitted, no value is submitted for the field. To handle this, you can set initialValues in the form to false for the checkbox field. Here's an example:
<Form
{...formProps}
initialValues={{
active: false
}}
>
<Form
{...formProps}
initialValues={{
active: false
}}
>
If you're still experiencing issues, it would be helpful to have a reproducible code example to better understand and debug the issue. For more information, you can refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs) and the Github issue (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/issues/1779) related to this topic. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

const editModalFormProps = useModalForm({
values: linkedPublishersList.find(
(e: any) => e._id === editRowLinkedPublisherId
),
refineCoreProps: {
redirect: false,
onMutationSuccess: () => refetch(),
},
defaultValues: {
status: false,
},
});

const {
modal: { show: showEditModal },
} = editModalFormProps;
const editModalFormProps = useModalForm({
values: linkedPublishersList.find(
(e: any) => e._id === editRowLinkedPublisherId
),
refineCoreProps: {
redirect: false,
onMutationSuccess: () => refetch(),
},
defaultValues: {
status: false,
},
});

const {
modal: { show: showEditModal },
} = editModalFormProps;
this is my modal props
<EditPost
{...editModalFormProps}
editRowLinkedPublisherId={editRowLinkedPublisherId}
/>
<EditPost
{...editModalFormProps}
editRowLinkedPublisherId={editRowLinkedPublisherId}
/>
this is where my modal as component is placed where do i add form.Item you mentioned i doubt its relevant @kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The Form.Item component is part of Ant Design's Form component, which is used by refine for form management. It's used to wrap each individual form field. In your case, if EditPost is a form, you would use Form.Item inside it to wrap each input field. Here's a simplified example:
import { Form, Input } from "antd";

const EditPost = ({ formProps, saveButtonProps, editRowLinkedPublisherId }) => {
return (
<Form {...formProps} layout="vertical">
<Form.Item
label="Status"
name="status"
valuePropName="checked"
>
<Checkbox />
</Form.Item>
{/* Other form fields go here */}
</Form>
);
};
import { Form, Input } from "antd";

const EditPost = ({ formProps, saveButtonProps, editRowLinkedPublisherId }) => {
return (
<Form {...formProps} layout="vertical">
<Form.Item
label="Status"
name="status"
valuePropName="checked"
>
<Checkbox />
</Form.Item>
{/* Other form fields go here */}
</Form>
);
};
In this example, Form.Item is used to wrap a checkbox input for a "status" field. The valuePropName prop is set to "checked", which is necessary for boolean values when using a checkbox or switch. If you're still having issues, it would be helpful to see the full code for the EditPost component to better understand how it's structured and where the issue might be. For more information, you can refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs) and the Ant Design Form documentation (https://ant.design/components/form/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai i am using mui for forms

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- I see, you're using Material UI for forms in your refine application. In this case, you would use Material UI's form components instead of Ant Design's Form.Item. If you're using a Checkbox for boolean values, you should be able to directly control its checked prop with the value from your form. Here's a simplified example:
import { Checkbox, FormControlLabel } from "@mui/material";
import { useForm } from "@refinedev/react-hook-form";

const EditPost = ({ formProps, saveButtonProps, editRowLinkedPublisherId }) => {
const { register } = useForm();

return (
<form {...formProps}>
<FormControlLabel
control={
<Checkbox
{...register("status")}
/>
}
label="Status"
/>
{/* Other form fields go here */}
</form>
);
};
import { Checkbox, FormControlLabel } from "@mui/material";
import { useForm } from "@refinedev/react-hook-form";

const EditPost = ({ formProps, saveButtonProps, editRowLinkedPublisherId }) => {
const { register } = useForm();

return (
<form {...formProps}>
<FormControlLabel
control={
<Checkbox
{...register("status")}
/>
}
label="Status"
/>
{/* Other form fields go here */}
</form>
);
};
In this example, register is a function from the useForm hook that you can use to register an input in the form. You spread it into the Checkbox component to connect the checkbox to the form. If you're still having issues, it would be helpful to see the full code for the EditPost component to better understand how it's structured and where the issue might be. For more information, you can refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs) and the Material UI Checkbox documentation (https://mui.com/components/checkboxes/). ---------------------- 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: ---------------------- From the code you've shared, it seems like you're using React Hook Form's Controller to wrap a checkbox input for the "status" field. The Controller component is used to integrate non-standard inputs like Material UI's Checkbox with React Hook Form. Here's a simplified version of your code:
import { Controller } from "react-hook-form";
import { Checkbox, FormControlLabel } from "@mui/material";

const EditPost = ({ control }) => (
<Controller
control={control}
name="status"
render={({ field }) => (
<FormControlLabel
label="isActive?"
control={
<Checkbox
{...field}
checked={field.value}
/>
}
/>
)}
/>
);
import { Controller } from "react-hook-form";
import { Checkbox, FormControlLabel } from "@mui/material";

const EditPost = ({ control }) => (
<Controller
control={control}
name="status"
render={({ field }) => (
<FormControlLabel
label="isActive?"
control={
<Checkbox
{...field}
checked={field.value}
/>
}
/>
)}
/>
);
In this example, Controller is used to wrap a Checkbox input. The field object provided by Controller's render prop is spread into the Checkbox to connect it to the form. The checked prop of the Checkbox is set to field.value to control its checked state with the form value. If you're still having issues, it would be helpful to know more about the specific problem you're experiencing. Are you seeing any error messages? What's the expected behavior and how does the actual behavior differ? For more information, you can refer to the React Hook Form documentation (https://react-hook-form.com/api/usecontroller/controller) and the Material UI Checkbox documentation (https://mui.com/components/checkboxes/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
