The <EditBase> component is a headless version of <Edit>: it fetches a record based on the URL, prepares a form submit handler, and renders its children.

It does that by calling useEditController, and by putting the result in an EditContext.


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

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

export const BookEdit = () => (
            <Title title="Book Edition" />
                    <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 <EditBase> component using the following props, documented in the <Edit> component:

  • children: the components that renders the form
  • disableAuthentication: disable the authentication check
  • id: the id of the record to edit
  • mutationMode: switch to optimistic or pessimistic mutations (undoable by default)
  • mutationOptions: options for the dataProvider.update() call
  • queryOptions: options for the dataProvider.getOne() call
  • 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.update()
