Hi @Joe Gaffney. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Hmm, I don't know enough to give you a confident answer yet. The knowledge sources provided do not contain specific information on how to set the responseType to 'arraybuffer' when using useCustom in refine. However, you can refer to the useCustom documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/data/hooks/use-custom/) for more details on how to use this hook. You might also find it useful to check the custom method in the dataProvider (https://refine.dev/docs/data/data-provider#custom), which is used by useCustom. Remember, useCustom is a hook provided by refine for making custom requests. It's possible that the responseType can be set in the config object or in the custom method of your dataProvider, but without specific information, I can't provide a definitive answer. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai do you have any information about responseType options

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- I'm sorry, but the provided knowledge sources do not contain specific information about responseType options in the context of refine. However, responseType is a common configuration option in HTTP client libraries like axios and fetch. It's used to indicate the type of data that the server will respond with options like 'arraybuffer', 'blob', 'json', etc. In the context of refine, such configurations would typically be made in the dataProvider or in a custom hook like useCustom. But without specific examples or documentation in the provided sources, I can't provide a definitive answer. For more information, you might find it useful to refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/), particularly the sections on data providers (https://refine.dev/docs/data/data-provider) and hooks (https://refine.dev/docs/data/hooks). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai I got this to work by piggy backing on to the headers and then overiding the responseType in the data provider
let responseType: ResponseType = "json";
if (headers && "responseType" in headers) {
responseType = (headers["responseType"] as ResponseType) || "json"; // Assert as axios.ResponseType
}

let axiosResponse;
switch (method) {
case "put":
case "post":
case "patch":
axiosResponse = await httpClient[method](url, payload, {
headers: headers,
responseType: responseType,
});
break;
let responseType: ResponseType = "json";
if (headers && "responseType" in headers) {
responseType = (headers["responseType"] as ResponseType) || "json"; // Assert as axios.ResponseType
}

let axiosResponse;
switch (method) {
case "put":
case "post":
case "patch":
axiosResponse = await httpClient[method](url, payload, {
headers: headers,
responseType: responseType,
});
break;

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Great! You've managed to override the responseType in the data provider by checking if it's provided in the headers. Here's your solution formatted:
let responseType: ResponseType = "json";
if (headers && "responseType" in headers) {
responseType = (headers["responseType"] as ResponseType) || "json"; // Assert as axios.ResponseType
}

let axiosResponse;
switch (method) {
case "put":
case "post":
case "patch":
axiosResponse = await httpClient[method](url, payload, {
headers: headers,
responseType: responseType,
});
break;
}
let responseType: ResponseType = "json";
if (headers && "responseType" in headers) {
responseType = (headers["responseType"] as ResponseType) || "json"; // Assert as axios.ResponseType
}

let axiosResponse;
switch (method) {
case "put":
case "post":
case "patch":
axiosResponse = await httpClient[method](url, payload, {
headers: headers,
responseType: responseType,
});
break;
}
In this code, you first set a default responseType of "json". Then, if responseType is provided in the headers, you override the default value with the provided one. Finally, you pass this responseType to the axios request configuration. This is a clever way to customize the responseType for individual requests. Just remember that this relies on the responseType being passed in the headers, which is not a standard use of HTTP headers. It's more of a workaround for passing extra configuration to your data provider. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai is there any way to pass the responsType into the dataprovider methods
custom: async ({ url, method, filters, sorters, payload, query, headers }) => {
custom: async ({ url, method, filters, sorters, payload, query, headers }) => {

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Based on the provided knowledge sources, there's no direct way to pass responseType into the custom method of the data provider in refine. The parameters that the custom method accepts are url, method, filters, sorters, payload, query, headers, and meta as shown in the documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/data/data-provider#custom). However, you've found a workaround by passing responseType in the headers object, and then using it in your data provider. This is a clever solution, but it's important to note that this is not a standard use of HTTP headers. Another possible approach could be to use the meta parameter, which is designed to pass additional information to data provider methods. You could pass responseType in the meta object, similar to how you're currently passing it in headers. Here's an example:
custom: async ({ url, method, filters, sorters, payload, query, headers, meta }) => {
let responseType = meta?.responseType || "json";

// Rest of your code...
}
custom: async ({ url, method, filters, sorters, payload, query, headers, meta }) => {
let responseType = meta?.responseType || "json";

// Rest of your code...
}
In this code, responseType is extracted from the meta object, with a default value of "json" if it's not provided. You would then use responseType in your axios request configuration, similar to how you're currently using it. Remember, this is just a suggestion based on the information available in the provided sources. Always refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/) for the most accurate and up-to-date information. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai that works extending with meta

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- I'm glad to hear that the solution worked for you! Using the meta parameter to pass additional information like responseType to your data provider methods is a flexible and powerful feature of refine. Here's the code snippet for reference:
custom: async ({ url, method, filters, sorters, payload, query, headers, meta }) => {
let responseType = meta?.responseType || "json";

// Rest of your code...
}
custom: async ({ url, method, filters, sorters, payload, query, headers, meta }) => {
let responseType = meta?.responseType || "json";

// Rest of your code...
}
In this code, responseType is extracted from the meta object, with a default value of "json" if it's not provided. You would then use responseType in your axios request configuration. Remember, always refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/) for the most accurate and up-to-date information. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
