<CreateBase> is a headless variant of <Create>. It prepares a form submit handler, and renders its children in a CreateContext. Use it to build a custom creation page layout.

Contrary to <Create>, it does not render the page layout, so no title, no actions, and no <Card>.

<CreateBase> relies on the useCreateController hook.


Use <CreateBase> to create a custom Creation view, with exactly the content you add as child and nothing else (no title, Card, or list of actions as in the <Create> component).

import * as React from "react";
import { CreateBase, SimpleForm, TextInput, SelectInput } from "react-admin";
import { Card } from "@mui/material";

export const BookCreate = () => ( 
            <Title title="Book Creation" />
                    <TextInput source="title" />
                    <TextInput source="author" />
                    <SelectInput source="availability" choices={[
                        { id: "in_stock", name: "In stock" },
                        { id: "out_of_stock", name: "Out of stock" },
                        { id: "out_of_print", name: "Out of print" },
                    ]} />


You can customize the <CreateBase> component using the following props, documented in the <Create> component:

  • children: the components that renders the form
  • disableAuthentication: disable the authentication check
  • mutationOptions: options for the dataProvider.create() call
  • record: initialize the form with a record
  • redirect: change the redirect location after successful creation
  • resource: override the name of the resource to create
  • transform: transform the form data before calling dataProvider.create()
