How can I populate a resource before passing to Inferencer?

Ppassive-yellow3/14/2024
Strapi v4 data by default doesn't even show relations/nested fields at all. When passing into inferencer, how can I have inferencer populate the resource before "inferencing?" I am using AntDesign

Hi @LoadedDie. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To populate a resource before passing it to the Inferencer, you can use the meta option to use relational population for Strapi v4 API. This is useful when you want to fetch related fields of the main resource. Here is an example of how you can do it:
const { dataGridProps } = useDataGrid<IPost>({
meta: {
populate: ["category"],
},
});
const { dataGridProps } = useDataGrid<IPost>({
meta: {
populate: ["category"],
},
});
In the above example, the populate parameter is set to define which fields will be populated. In this case, it's the "category" field. You can also populate multiple related collections. Here is an example from the Refine Invoices Page:
const { tableProps } = useTable<IInvoice>({
meta: {
populate: {
contact: { populate: ["client"] },
company: { populate: ["logo"] },
missions: "*",
},
},
});
const { tableProps } = useTable<IInvoice>({
meta: {
populate: {
contact: { populate: ["client"] },
company: { populate: ["logo"] },
missions: "*",
},
},
});
In this example, the contacts, companies, and missions related to the Invoice collection are populated in meta. After populating the resource, you can then pass it to the Inferencer.

@kapa.ai Does useDataGrid work with Antd?
Kkapa.ai3/14/2024
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- No, the useDataGrid hook is specifically designed for Material UI's DataGrid component. For Ant Design, Refine provides the useTable hook to work with Ant Design's Table component. Here is an example of how you can use the useTable hook with Ant Design:
import React from "react";
import { useTable, FilterDropdown } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Table, Input } from "antd";

export const ProductTable: React.FC = () => {
const { tableProps } = useTable<IProduct>({
resource: "products",
filters: {
initial: [
{
field: "name",
operator: "contains",
value: "",
},
],
},
});
return (
<div style={{ padding: "4px" }}>
<h2>Products</h2>
<Table {...tableProps} rowKey="id">
<Table.Column
dataIndex="id"
title="ID"
sorter={{ multiple: 2 }}
/>
<Table.Column
dataIndex="name"
title="Name"
filterDropdown={(props) => (
<FilterDropdown {...props}>
<Input placeholder="Search by name" />
</FilterDropdown>
)}
/>
<Table.Column
dataIndex="price"
title="Price"
sorter={{ multiple: 1 }}
/>
</Table>
</div>
);
};
interface IProduct {
id: number;
name: string;
price: string;
material: string;
}
import React from "react";
import { useTable, FilterDropdown } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Table, Input } from "antd";

export const ProductTable: React.FC = () => {
const { tableProps } = useTable<IProduct>({
resource: "products",
filters: {
initial: [
{
field: "name",
operator: "contains",
value: "",
},
],
},
});
return (
<div style={{ padding: "4px" }}>
<h2>Products</h2>
<Table {...tableProps} rowKey="id">
<Table.Column
dataIndex="id"
title="ID"
sorter={{ multiple: 2 }}
/>
<Table.Column
dataIndex="name"
title="Name"
filterDropdown={(props) => (
<FilterDropdown {...props}>
<Input placeholder="Search by name" />
</FilterDropdown>
)}
/>
<Table.Column
dataIndex="price"
title="Price"
sorter={{ multiple: 1 }}
/>
</Table>
</div>
);
};
interface IProduct {
id: number;
name: string;
price: string;
material: string;
}
In this example, the useTable hook is used to fetch data and provide props for the Ant Design Table component.

@kapa.ai how can i populate strapi v4 resources for AntdInferencer?
Kkapa.ai3/14/2024
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To populate Strapi v4 resources for AntdInferencer, you can use the metaData prop in your resource definition. The metaData prop allows you to specify additional parameters for your API requests, including the populate parameter for Strapi v4. Here's an example of how you can do it:
import { AntdInferencer } from "@refinedev/inferencer/antd";

const SampleList = () => {
return (
<AntdInferencer
resource="samples"
action="list"
metaData={{ populate: ["relatedField"] }}
/>
);
};
import { AntdInferencer } from "@refinedev/inferencer/antd";

const SampleList = () => {
return (
<AntdInferencer
resource="samples"
action="list"
metaData={{ populate: ["relatedField"] }}
/>
);
};
In this example, the populate parameter is set to ["relatedField"], which means the relatedField of the samples resource will be populated. Please note that the populate parameter should be an array of the related fields you want to populate.

@kapa.ai That didn't work. I don't think metaData is an allowed prop for AntdInferencer. This is the error: Type '{ resource: string; action: "list"; metaData: { populate: string[]; }; }' is not assignable to type 'IntrinsicAttributes & InferencerComponentProps'. Property 'metaData' does not exist on type 'IntrinsicAttributes & InferencerComponentProps'.ts(232
Kkapa.ai3/14/2024
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- I apologize for the confusion. You're correct, the metaData prop is not available for the AntdInferencer component. The AntdInferencer component uses the meta prop to define meta values for your resources and methods in a single prop and uses it when generating the code and inferring the fields. Here's an example of how you can define the meta values in AntdInferencer components:
<AntdListInferencer
meta={{
[resourceNameOrIdentifier: string]: {
[methodName: "default" | "getList" | "getMany" | "getOne" | "update"]: Record<string, unknown>,
}
}}
/>
<AntdListInferencer
meta={{
[resourceNameOrIdentifier: string]: {
[methodName: "default" | "getList" | "getMany" | "getOne" | "update"]: Record<string, unknown>,
}
}}
/>
In this example, default is the default meta value for all the methods. In the absence of a specific meta value for a method for a resource, the default value will be used. However, the meta prop in AntdInferencer does not support the populate parameter for Strapi v4. The AntdInferencer component is designed to infer the fields and generate the code based on the data it receives, and it does not have the capability to modify the API request parameters. If you need to populate the related fields in Strapi v4, you might need to do it manually in your data provider or in your API server.
