import React from 'react';
import algoliasearch from 'algoliasearch/lite';
import { InstantSearch, ClearRefinements } from 'react-instantsearch-hooks-web';

const searchClient = algoliasearch('YourApplicationID', 'YourSearchOnlyAPIKey');

function App() {
  return (
    <InstantSearch indexName="instant_search" searchClient={searchClient}>
      <ClearRefinements />
    </InstantSearch>
  );
}

Props

includedAttributes
type: string[]
default: []

The attributes to include in the refinements to clear (all by default). Can’t be used with excludedAttributes. In the example below, only the categories attribute is included in the refinements to clear.

1
<ClearRefinements includedAttributes={['categories']} />
excludedAttributes
type: string[]
default: ["query"]

The attributes to exclude from the refinements to clear. Can’t be used with includedAttributes. In the example below, the attribute brand is excluded from the refinements to clear.

1
<CurrentRefinements excludedAttributes={['brand']} />
transformItems
type: (items: object[], metadata: { results: SearchResults }) => object[]
Optional

Function which receives the items to clear, which is called before clearing them. Should return a new array with the same shape as the original array. Useful for filtering items.

In addition, the full results data is available, which includes all regular response parameters, as well as parameters from the helper (for example disjunctiveFacetsRefinements).

const transformItems = (items) => {

};

function Search() {
  return (
    <ClearRefinements
      // ...
      transformItems={transformItems}
    />
  );
}
classNames
type: Partial<ClearRefinementsClassNames>
Optional

CSS classes to pass to the widget’s elements. This is useful to style widgets with class-based CSS frameworks like Bootstrap or Tailwind CSS.

  • root: The root element of the widget.
  • button: The button element.
  • disabledButton: The button element when there are no refinements to clear.

Hook

React InstantSearch Hooks let you create your own UI for the <ClearRefinements> widget with useClearRefinements(). Hooks provide APIs to access the widget state and interact with InstantSearch.

The useClearRefinements() Hook accepts parameters and returns APIs.

Usage

First, create your React component:

import { useClearRefinements } from 'react-instantsearch-hooks-web';

function CustomClearRefinements(props) {
  const { refine, canRefine, createURL } = useClearRefinements(props);

  return <>{/* Your JSX */}</>;
}

Then, render the widget:

<CustomClearRefinements {...props} />

Parameters

Hooks accept parameters. You can pass them manually, or forward the props from your custom component.

When you provide a function to Hooks, make sure to pass a stable reference to avoid rendering endlessly (for example, with useCallback()). Objects and arrays are memoized; you don’t need to stabilize them.

includedAttributes
type: string[]
default: []

The attributes to include in the refinements to clear (all by default). Can’t be used with excludedAttributes. In the example below, only the categories attribute is included in the refinements to clear.

APIs

Hooks return APIs, such as state and functions. You can use them to build your UI and interact with React InstantSearch.

refine
type: () => void

Clears all the currently refined values and triggers a new search.

canRefine
type: boolean

Indicates if search state can be refined.

createURL
type: () => string

Generates a URL of the next state.
