The <CreateBase> component is a headless version of <Create>: it prepares a form submit handler, and renders its children.

It does that by calling useCreateController, and by putting the result in an CreateContext.


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()
