StateProvider

StateProvider component allows you to access the current state of your components along with the search results. For instance, you can use this component to create results/no results or query/no query pages.

Usage

Basic Usage

<StateProvider render={({ searchState }) => (
	<div>
		Search State: ${JSON.stringify(searchState)}
	</div>
)}/>

or

<StateProvider>
	{({ searchState }) => (
		<div>
			Search State: ${JSON.stringify(searchState)}
		</div>
	)}
</StateProvider>

Props

  • componentIds string|string[] [optional] By default StateProvider watches the state of all the components, you can restrict this behavior by defining the component id(ids) for which you want to listen for.

Note

You can avoid the unnecessary re-renders of StateProvider component by defining the componentIds.

  • strict boolean [optional] (defaults to true) StateProvider uses the shouldComponentUpdate internally to avoid the extra re-renders, you can always by pass it by setting the value of strict prop as false.

Note

This props is important when someone is using the React state inside the StateProvider.

  • render [optional] A function returning the UI you want to render based on your results. This function receives a list of parameters and expects to return a JSX.

It accepts an object with these properties:

searchState: object
It returns an object with component id as key and state as value.
For example:

 {
	   	BooksSearch: {
				value: 'A song of Ice and Fire',
				hits: [],
				error: null,
	   	},
	   	RatingsFilter: {
				value: {
					start: 4,
					end: 5,
					label: "★★★★ & up"
				},
				aggregations: [],
				hits: [],
				error: null
	   	}
 }
  • includeKeys string[] [optional] defaults set to ['value', 'hits', 'aggregations', 'error'] which means that by default your search state for a particular component will only contains these keys. Although the default search state fulfills most of your common use cases but you can also control it by defining your custom keys with the help of includeKeys prop.

    For example:

    	<StateProvider
    		includeKeys={['value']}
    		render={({ searchState }) => {
    			console.log(searchState);
    			return null;
    		}}
    	/>
    

    Returned State:

    {
    		BooksSearch: {
    				value: 'A song of Ice and Fire',
    		},
    		RatingsFilter: {
    				value: {
    					start: 4,
    					end: 5,
    					label: "★★★★ & up"
    				},
    		}
    }
    

    Here is a list of all the valid keys:

    • isLoading true if the component’s query is in executing mode
    • error returns the error
    • hits An array of hits obtained from the applied query.
    • aggregations An array of aggregations obtained from the applied query.
    • query returns the component’s query in Elaticsearch Query DSL format.
    • react returns the react property of the components
    • componentType string constant to tell the type of the reactivesearch component is being used.
    • dataField data field to be connected to the component’s UI view.
    • includeFields query option
    • excludeFields query option
    • size query option
    • sortBy query option
    • sortOptions query option
    • pagination true means result components are using pagination in UI
    • autoFocus property of search components
    • autosuggest property of search components
    • debounce property of search components
    • defaultValue default value of components
    • defaultSuggestions default suggestions set by user
    • fieldWeights property of search components
    • filterLabel filter label set for components
    • fuzziness property of search components
    • highlight property of search components
    • highlightField property of search components
    • nestedField returns the nestedField prop set by user
    • placeholder placeholder set for search components
    • queryFormat returns the queryFormat set for the components
    • categoryField property of search components
    • strictSelection property of search components
    • selectAllLabel property of list components
    • showCheckbox property of list components
    • showFilter property of list components
    • showSearch property of list components
    • showCount property of list components
    • showLoadMore property of list components
    • loadMoreLabel property of list components
    • showMissing property of list components
    • missingLabel property of list components
    • data property of list components
    • showRadio property of list components
    • multiSelect property of list components
    • interval property of range components
    • showHistogram property of range components
    • snap property of range components
    • stepValue property of range components
    • range property of range components
    • showSlider property of range components

Note

The existence of a key in component’s search state depends on the type of component is being used.

  • onChange function [optional] is a callback function called when the search state changes and accepts the previous and next search state as arguments.

    For example:

    	<StateProvider
    		onChange={(prevState, nextState) => {
    			console.log("Old State", prevState);
    			console.log("New State", nextState);
    		}}
    	/>
