Hi @Matt. 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 provided knowledge sources, it's not explicitly mentioned how to change the text or use a custom SVG icon for the <CreateButton> component in Refine. However, Refine does provide a way to customize components using the swizzle command of the Refine CLI. This command allows you to export the components of the UI integrations and use them in your application, enabling you to change the components at a granular level. Here's an example of how to use the swizzle command:
> npm run refine swizzle

Which package do you want to swizzle? (Use arrow keys or type to search)

Data Provider
@refinedev/simple-rest
UI Framework
@refinedev/antd

Which component do you want to swizzle?

Buttons
CreateButton
ShowButton
❯◉ EditButton
Pages
ErrorPage
AuthPage

> npm run refine swizzle

Which package do you want to swizzle? (Use arrow keys or type to search)

Data Provider
@refinedev/simple-rest
UI Framework
@refinedev/antd

Which component do you want to swizzle?

Buttons
CreateButton
ShowButton
❯◉ EditButton
Pages
ErrorPage
AuthPage

(Move up and down to reveal more choices)
Please note that while swizzle provides a way to customize the components, it's a one-time operation and it may be hard to maintain the changes and keep track of the new features in the future. Swizzling a component will detach it from the related package and it will be your responsibility to keep it up to date. For more information about the swizzle command, you can check out the CLI documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/list-of-packages/). If you want to hide the text of the button, you can use the hideText property. When hideText is true, only the button icon is visible. Here's an example:
import { CreateButton } from "@refinedev/antd";

const MyCreateComponent = () => {
return (
<CreateButton
hideText={true}
/>
);
};
import { CreateButton } from "@refinedev/antd";

const MyCreateComponent = () => {
return (
<CreateButton
hideText={true}
/>
);
};
However, this doesn't change the text or the icon of the button. For more advanced customization like changing the text to "Add" or using a custom SVG icon, you might need to use the swizzle command or create a custom button 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: ---------------------- While CSS can be used to style elements, it cannot be used to change the text of a button or replace an icon with a custom SVG. CSS is a stylesheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in HTML. It is designed to enable the separation of document content from document presentation, including elements such as the layout, colors, and fonts. To change the text of a button or replace an icon with a custom SVG, you would typically need to modify the HTML (or JSX in the case of React) directly. As mentioned in the previous response, you might need to use the swizzle command or create a custom button component for more advanced customization in Refine. If you only want to change the style of the button (like color, padding, etc.), you can do that with CSS. For example, in Refine, you can use the createButtonProps property to customize the style of the create button in the <List> component:
import { List } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { usePermissions } from "@refinedev/core";

const PostList: React.FC = () => {
const { data: permissionsData } = usePermissions();
return (
<List
canCreate={permissionsData?.includes("admin")}
createButtonProps={{ colorScheme: "red", variant: "solid" }}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</List>
);
};
import { List } from "@refinedev/chakra-ui";
import { usePermissions } from "@refinedev/core";

const PostList: React.FC = () => {
const { data: permissionsData } = usePermissions();
return (
<List
canCreate={permissionsData?.includes("admin")}
createButtonProps={{ colorScheme: "red", variant: "solid" }}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</List>
);
};
In this example, the colorScheme and variant properties are used to customize the color and style of the button. However, please note that the available properties might vary depending on the UI library you are using. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai as the button is just a link could I remove the button from the list screen and add my own in the same place?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, you can customize the buttons at the header of the <List> component by using the headerButtons property. This property accepts React.ReactNode or a render function which you can use to keep the existing buttons and add your own. Here's an example of how you can add a custom button to the header of the <List> component:
import { List } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostList: React.FC = () => {
return (
<List
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</List>
);
};
import { List } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostList: React.FC = () => {
return (
<List
headerButtons={({ defaultButtons }) => (
<>
{defaultButtons}
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
</>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</List>
);
};
In this example, the headerButtons property is used to add a custom button to the header of the <List> component. The defaultButtons are kept and a new button with the text "Custom Button" is added. If you want to remove the default buttons and only use your own, you can do so by not including {defaultButtons} in the render function:
import { List } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostList: React.FC = () => {
return (
<List
headerButtons={() => (
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</List>
);
};
import { List } from "@refinedev/antd";
import { Button } from "antd";

const PostList: React.FC = () => {
return (
<List
headerButtons={() => (
<Button type="primary">Custom Button</Button>
)}
>
<p>Rest of your page here</p>
</List>
);
};
In this example, only the custom button is rendered in the header of the <List> component. The default buttons are not included. Please note that the available properties and components might vary depending on the UI library you are using. The examples above are using the Ant Design library. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
