useDataGrid & React Query Stale Time

Hello, I am running into an issue with useDataGrid (Material UI) and React Query. I am specifying the stale time as 5 minutes as given below. However every time I navigate to the page containing grid component, I can see React Query firing a query to refresh the cache. It does not wait for 5 minutes which is what I was expecting. const { dataGridProps, filters, setFilters, setCurrent } = useDataGrid<DataType>({ sorters: { initial: initialSorters, }, filters: { initial: initialFilters, }, queryOptions: { staleTime: 60000, } }); According to the docs, useDataGrid is using useTable which internally is using useList which uses useQuery from Tanstack React Query. So the staleTime should be honored. Let me know what am I missing here?

Hi @Pankaj. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- The behavior you're experiencing is actually the default behavior of TanStack's React Query, not Refine. When you use useQuery, it sends a request regardless of the situation. However, if the cache time has not expired, it first shows the available data and then revalidates it. If the cache time has expired, it shows the result directly from the request. In your case, you've set the staleTime to 60000 milliseconds (1 minute), not 5 minutes. If you want the data to be considered fresh for 5 minutes and not to make requests within this interval, you should set the staleTime to 300000 milliseconds (5 minutes). Here's how you can do it:
const { dataGridProps, filters, setFilters, setCurrent } = useDataGrid<DataType>({
sorters: {
initial: initialSorters,
},
filters: {
initial: initialFilters,
},
queryOptions: {
staleTime: 300000, // 5 minutes
}
});
const { dataGridProps, filters, setFilters, setCurrent } = useDataGrid<DataType>({
sorters: {
initial: initialSorters,
},
filters: {
initial: initialFilters,
},
queryOptions: {
staleTime: 300000, // 5 minutes
}
});
You can set staleTime globally or individually for each hook with queryOptions. For more information about caching, you can refer to the React Query Caching Guide (https://tanstack.com/query/latest/docs/react/guides/caching). To understand how to use queryClient in Refine, you can refer to the Refine Component Documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/core/refine-component/#clientconfig).

@kapa.ai That's correct that for 5 minutes, the value should be 300000. However, TanStack React Query should not send any requests till 5 minutes are over after the initial query. Isn't it? In my case the query fires every time I navigate to the page containing the component using useDataGrid.

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Yes, you're correct. If you've set staleTime to 5 minutes (300000 milliseconds), React Query should consider the data fresh for that duration and not make any additional requests during this time. However, React Query's behavior can be influenced by various factors. For instance, if you're navigating away from the page and then coming back, React Query might be refetching the data due to the way your React components are unmounting and remounting. Also, keep in mind that staleTime only determines when the data becomes stale and needs revalidation. It doesn't prevent a new request if the component using the data is unmounted and then remounted. If you want to ensure that the data stays in the cache for a certain period of time, even if the component unmounts, you might want to look into setting a cacheTime. By default, Refine uses 5 minutes for cacheTime. Here's how you can set it:
const {{ dataGridProps, filters, setFilters, setCurrent }} = useDataGrid<DataType>({{
sorters: {{
initial: initialSorters,
}},
filters: {{
initial: initialFilters,
}},
queryOptions: {{
staleTime: 300000, // 5 minutes
cacheTime: 300000, // 5 minutes
}}
}});
const {{ dataGridProps, filters, setFilters, setCurrent }} = useDataGrid<DataType>({{
sorters: {{
initial: initialSorters,
}},
filters: {{
initial: initialFilters,
}},
queryOptions: {{
staleTime: 300000, // 5 minutes
cacheTime: 300000, // 5 minutes
}}
}});

@kapa.ai - I don't think component mounting or unmounting has anything to do with React Query refetching a fresh query. Can you share documentation for the same?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- You're correct. React Query's staleTime and cacheTime configurations are not directly related to component mounting or unmounting. The staleTime configuration determines how long fetched data is considered fresh, and cacheTime determines how long unused (not actively subscribed to) data stays in the cache before being garbage collected. However, React Query's behavior can be influenced by how you use it in your components. For example, if a component that uses a specific query unmounts, and then later remounts, React Query will run the query again if the data is stale. This is because React Query's main goal is to keep your data fresh and synchronized. If you're seeing the query run more often than you expect, it could be due to other factors. For example, if you're using the refetchOnWindowFocus or refetchOnReconnect options, React Query will refetch data whenever the window is refocused or the internet connection is restored, respectively. For more detailed information, you can refer to the React Query documentation (https://react-query.tanstack.com/guides/important-defaults) and the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/guides-concepts/general-concepts#state-management).

@kapa.ai - I am simply navigating to the page containing the component that uses useDataGrid hook. Everytime, I navigate React Query is making a call. I think useDataGrid hook is buggy in Refine causing this to happen.

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- I understand your concern. However, based on the information provided in the knowledge sources, there's no direct indication of a bug in the useDataGrid hook causing unnecessary requests. The useDataGrid hook in Refine is designed to work with React Query's caching and fetching strategies. If you're seeing unexpected behavior, it might be due to the specific configuration or usage in your application. Here are a few things you can check: 1. Make sure you're using the latest version of Refine and React Query. There might have been bug fixes or improvements that could affect this behavior. 2. Check your React Query configuration. If you're using options like refetchOnWindowFocus or refetchOnReconnect, React Query will refetch data under certain conditions. 3. Check how you're using the useDataGrid hook. If you're using it in multiple components or in a way that causes it to unmount and remount, it could lead to additional requests. If you're still experiencing issues, it would be helpful to provide a minimal reproduction of the issue. This could help identify if there's a bug in Refine or if it's related to the specific usage in your application. For more information, you can refer to the React Query documentation (https://react-query.tanstack.com/guides/important-defaults) and the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/guides-concepts/general-concepts#state-management).
