Hi @BlackBearFTW. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To use the translate method from the i18n provider inside the accessControlProvider to translate error messages, you can follow these steps. The translate method can be accessed using the useTranslation hook provided by refine. Here is an example of how you can integrate the translate method within your accessControlProvider: 1. Set up the i18n provider: Ensure you have your i18n provider set up correctly. You can refer to the i18n Provider documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/i18n/i18n-provider/#translate) for more details. 2. Use the useTranslation hook: Import and use the useTranslation hook to access the translate method. 3. Translate error messages: Use the translate method to translate your error messages within the accessControlProvider. Here is a code example demonstrating these steps:
import { I18nProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import { useTranslation } from "react-i18next";

// Set up your i18n provider
const { t } = useTranslation();

const i18nProvider: I18nProvider = {
translate: (key: string, options?: any, defaultMessage?: string) =>
t(key, defaultMessage, options),
// other i18n provider methods...
};

// Example accessControlProvider
const accessControlProvider = {
can: async ({ resource, action, params }) => {
// Your access control logic here...

// Example of translating an error message
if (someErrorCondition) {
const errorMessage = i18nProvider.translate(
"errors.accessDenied",
{ resource, action },
"Access denied"
);
return Promise.reject(new Error(errorMessage));
}

return Promise.resolve({ can: true });
},
// other access control provider methods...
};

export default accessControlProvider;
import { I18nProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import { useTranslation } from "react-i18next";

// Set up your i18n provider
const { t } = useTranslation();

const i18nProvider: I18nProvider = {
translate: (key: string, options?: any, defaultMessage?: string) =>
t(key, defaultMessage, options),
// other i18n provider methods...
};

// Example accessControlProvider
const accessControlProvider = {
can: async ({ resource, action, params }) => {
// Your access control logic here...

// Example of translating an error message
if (someErrorCondition) {
const errorMessage = i18nProvider.translate(
"errors.accessDenied",
{ resource, action },
"Access denied"
);
return Promise.reject(new Error(errorMessage));
}

return Promise.resolve({ can: true });
},
// other access control provider methods...
};

export default accessControlProvider;
In this example: - The i18nProvider is set up with a translate method that uses the useTranslation hook from react-i18next. - Inside the accessControlProvider, the translate method is used to translate an error message when a certain error condition is met. For more details on the translate method and its usage, you can refer to the i18n Provider documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/i18n/i18n-provider/#translate). If you need further customization or have specific requirements, you can adjust the code accordingly. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai those hooks wont work outside a react component

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- You're correct that hooks like useTranslation won't work outside of a React component. To address this, you can create a custom function that wraps the translate method and use it within your accessControlProvider. Here's how you can achieve this: 1. Create a translation function: Create a function that uses the translate method from the i18n provider. 2. Use the translation function in the accessControlProvider: Use this function to translate error messages within your accessControlProvider. Here is an example:
import { I18nProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import i18n from "i18next";

// Set up your i18n provider
const i18nProvider: I18nProvider = {
translate: (key: string, options?: any, defaultMessage?: string) =>
i18n.t(key, { ...options, defaultMessage }),
// other i18n provider methods...
};

// Custom translation function
const translate = (key: string, options?: any, defaultMessage?: string) => {
return i18nProvider.translate(key, options, defaultMessage);
};

// Example accessControlProvider
const accessControlProvider = {
can: async ({ resource, action, params }) => {
// Your access control logic here...

// Example of translating an error message
if (someErrorCondition) {
const errorMessage = translate(
"errors.accessDenied",
{ resource, action },
"Access denied"
);
return Promise.reject(new Error(errorMessage));
}

return Promise.resolve({ can: true });
},
// other access control provider methods...
};

export default accessControlProvider;
import { I18nProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import i18n from "i18next";

// Set up your i18n provider
const i18nProvider: I18nProvider = {
translate: (key: string, options?: any, defaultMessage?: string) =>
i18n.t(key, { ...options, defaultMessage }),
// other i18n provider methods...
};

// Custom translation function
const translate = (key: string, options?: any, defaultMessage?: string) => {
return i18nProvider.translate(key, options, defaultMessage);
};

// Example accessControlProvider
const accessControlProvider = {
can: async ({ resource, action, params }) => {
// Your access control logic here...

// Example of translating an error message
if (someErrorCondition) {
const errorMessage = translate(
"errors.accessDenied",
{ resource, action },
"Access denied"
);
return Promise.reject(new Error(errorMessage));
}

return Promise.resolve({ can: true });
},
// other access control provider methods...
};

export default accessControlProvider;
In this example: - The i18nProvider is set up with a translate method that uses i18next. - A custom translate function is created to wrap the translate method from the i18nProvider. - The custom translate function is used within the accessControlProvider to translate error messages. This approach ensures that you can use the translation functionality within the accessControlProvider without directly using hooks outside of a React component. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
