How can i transform "tableProps" when using "useEditableTable" hook with antd

I have the following hook definition:
const {
tableProps,
formProps,
isEditing,
setId: setEditId,
saveButtonProps,
cancelButtonProps,
editButtonProps,
} = useEditableTable({
resource: 'getusers',
});
const {
tableProps,
formProps,
isEditing,
setId: setEditId,
saveButtonProps,
cancelButtonProps,
editButtonProps,
} = useEditableTable({
resource: 'getusers',
});
and I am trying to format tableProps.dataSource. The reason for that is because the response from getusers returns an object

Hi @biohazard#1521. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- The useEditableTable hook from Refine provides a tableProps object that you can use directly in your Ant Design Table component. However, if you need to transform the dataSource property of tableProps, you can do so by creating a new object and spreading the tableProps into it, then overriding the dataSource property with your transformed data. Here's an example of how you can do this:
const { tableProps, formProps } = useEditableTable<IPost>();

// Transform your data
const transformedData = tableProps.dataSource.map(item => {
// Perform your transformation here
return transformedItem;
});

// Create a new tableProps object with the transformed data
const newTableProps = { ...tableProps, dataSource: transformedData };

// Use newTableProps in your Table component
return (
<List>
<Form {...formProps}>
<Table {...newTableProps} rowKey="id">
<Table.Column dataIndex="id" title="ID" />
<Table.Column dataIndex="title" title="Title" />
</Table>
</Form>
</List>
);
const { tableProps, formProps } = useEditableTable<IPost>();

// Transform your data
const transformedData = tableProps.dataSource.map(item => {
// Perform your transformation here
return transformedItem;
});

// Create a new tableProps object with the transformed data
const newTableProps = { ...tableProps, dataSource: transformedData };

// Use newTableProps in your Table component
return (
<List>
<Form {...formProps}>
<Table {...newTableProps} rowKey="id">
<Table.Column dataIndex="id" title="ID" />
<Table.Column dataIndex="title" title="Title" />
</Table>
</Form>
</List>
);
Please replace the transformation logic with your own. This is just a basic example of how you can transform the dataSource property of tableProps. For more information, you can refer to the Refine documentation on useEditableTable (https://refine.dev/docs/ui-integrations/ant-design/hooks/use-editable-table). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

the problem is that tableProps.dataSource is an object that has items and totalCount keys, and I want to transform tableProps.dataSource to the items field @kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- If the dataSource property of tableProps is an object with items and totalCount keys, and you want to set dataSource to the items field, you can do this by directly accessing the items field from dataSource. Here's how you can do it:
const { tableProps, formProps } = useEditableTable();

// Access the items field from dataSource
const itemsData = tableProps.dataSource.items;

// Create a new tableProps object with the items data
const newTableProps = { ...tableProps, dataSource: itemsData };

// Use newTableProps in your Table component
return (
<List>
<Form {...formProps}>
<Table {...newTableProps} rowKey="id">
<Table.Column dataIndex="id" title="ID" />
<Table.Column dataIndex="title" title="Title" />
</Table>
</Form>
</List>
);
const { tableProps, formProps } = useEditableTable();

// Access the items field from dataSource
const itemsData = tableProps.dataSource.items;

// Create a new tableProps object with the items data
const newTableProps = { ...tableProps, dataSource: itemsData };

// Use newTableProps in your Table component
return (
<List>
<Form {...formProps}>
<Table {...newTableProps} rowKey="id">
<Table.Column dataIndex="id" title="ID" />
<Table.Column dataIndex="title" title="Title" />
</Table>
</Form>
</List>
);
This will set dataSource to the items field from your original dataSource. For more information, you can refer to the Refine documentation on useEditableTable (https://refine.dev/docs/ui-integrations/ant-design/hooks/use-editable-table). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

this works at runtime, but typescript is giving me errors: TS2339: Property items does not exist on type readonly BaseRecord[] @kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The TypeScript error you're encountering is because the dataSource property of tableProps is typed as readonly BaseRecord[], which means TypeScript is expecting an array, not an object with items and totalCount properties. To resolve this, you need to define the type of the data you're expecting from your API. For example, if your API returns data in the following format:
{
"items": [...],
"totalCount": 100
}
{
"items": [...],
"totalCount": 100
}
You can define a type for this response:
type MyApiResponse = {
items: BaseRecord[];
totalCount: number;
};
type MyApiResponse = {
items: BaseRecord[];
totalCount: number;
};
Then, you can use this type when calling useEditableTable:
const { tableProps, formProps } = useEditableTable<MyApiResponse>();

// Access the items field from dataSource
const itemsData = tableProps.dataSource.items;

// Create a new tableProps object with the items data
const newTableProps = { ...tableProps, dataSource: itemsData };

// Use newTableProps in your Table component
return (
<List>
<Form {...formProps}>
<Table {...newTableProps} rowKey="id">
<Table.Column dataIndex="id" title="ID" />
<Table.Column dataIndex="title" title="Title" />
</Table>
</Form>
</List>
);
const { tableProps, formProps } = useEditableTable<MyApiResponse>();

// Access the items field from dataSource
const itemsData = tableProps.dataSource.items;

// Create a new tableProps object with the items data
const newTableProps = { ...tableProps, dataSource: itemsData };

// Use newTableProps in your Table component
return (
<List>
<Form {...formProps}>
<Table {...newTableProps} rowKey="id">
<Table.Column dataIndex="id" title="ID" />
<Table.Column dataIndex="title" title="Title" />
</Table>
</Form>
</List>
);
This tells TypeScript that dataSource is of type MyApiResponse, which has items and totalCount properties. For more information, you can refer to the Refine documentation on useEditableTable (https://refine.dev/docs/ui-integrations/ant-design/hooks/use-editable-table) and the TypeScript documentation on custom types (https://www.typescriptlang.org/docs/handbook/2/objects.html). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

then dataSource converts the type to readonly MyApiResponse[], which is an array and it does not work for me, as that is not the actual response. How can i override the type? @kapa.ai
kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The useEditableTable hook from Refine expects the dataSource to be an array of records. If your API returns an object instead of an array, you might need to create a custom data provider to handle this. A data provider is an object that Refine uses to interact with your API. It has methods like getList, getOne, create, update, etc. You can create a custom data provider and override the getList method to transform the API response into the format that Refine expects. Here's an example of how you can create a custom data provider:
import baseDataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";

const myDataProvider = {
...baseDataProvider,
getList: async (resource, params) => {
const response = await baseDataProvider.getList(resource, params);

// Transform the response into the format that Refine expects
const data = response.data.items;
const total = response.data.totalCount;

return { data, total };
},
};

// Then use myDataProvider in your app
<Refine dataProvider={myDataProvider}>{/* ... */}</Refine>;
import baseDataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";

const myDataProvider = {
...baseDataProvider,
getList: async (resource, params) => {
const response = await baseDataProvider.getList(resource, params);

// Transform the response into the format that Refine expects
const data = response.data.items;
const total = response.data.totalCount;

return { data, total };
},
};

// Then use myDataProvider in your app
<Refine dataProvider={myDataProvider}>{/* ... */}</Refine>;
In this example, baseDataProvider is the data provider that you're currently using. Replace @refinedev/simple-rest with your current data provider. For more information, you can refer to the Refine documentation on customizing data providers (https://refine.dev/docs/data/data-provider#how-can-i-customize-existing-data-providers) and creating a custom data provider (https://refine.dev/docs/data/data-provider#how-can-i-create-a-custom-data-provider). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
