Hi @sarsar55.. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To customize the sider buttons in the sidebar using MUI and Express API, you can use the render property of the <Sider> component. 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 is an example of how to customize the sider buttons:
import { Layout, Sider } from "@refinedev/mui";

const CustomSider = () => {
return (
<Sider
render={({ items, logout }) => {
return (
<>
<a href="<https://refine.dev/">👋> Navigation Link</a>
{items}
{logout}
</>
);
}}
/>
);
};

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

const CustomSider = () => {
return (
<Sider
render={({ items, logout }) => {
return (
<>
<a href="<https://refine.dev/">👋> Navigation Link</a>
{items}
{logout}
</>
);
}}
/>
);
};

const CustomLayout = () => {
return <Layout Sider={CustomSider}>...</Layout>;
};
In this example, a custom navigation link is added to the sidebar along with the existing items and the logout button. You can modify this example to add nested buttons under a bulk button as per your requirements. For more details, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/guides-concepts/faq#using-render-property-of-sider-component). ---------------------- 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: ---------------------- You should write the provided code in the file where you are defining your main application layout. This is typically where you are using the <Refine> component. Here is an example of how you might structure it:
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import { ThemedLayoutV2 } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { CustomSider } from "./CustomSider"; // Ensure this file exports your custom sider component

const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Refine
// ...
>
<ThemedLayoutV2
Sider={() => <CustomSider />}
>
{/* ... */}
</ThemedLayoutV2>
</Refine>
);
};
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import { ThemedLayoutV2 } from "@refinedev/mui";
import { CustomSider } from "./CustomSider"; // Ensure this file exports your custom sider component

const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<Refine
// ...
>
<ThemedLayoutV2
Sider={() => <CustomSider />}
>
{/* ... */}
</ThemedLayoutV2>
</Refine>
);
};
In this example, CustomSider is your custom component that you've defined elsewhere and imported into this file. You can replace CustomSider with the name of your custom sider component. For more details, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/ui-integrations/mantine/components/themed-layout#sider). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
