About this widget

<RangeInput> is a widget to let users select a numeric range using minimum and maximum inputs.

You need to specify the attribute prop in attributes for faceting, either on the dashboard or using attributesForFaceting with the API. The attribute values must be numbers, not strings.

You can also create your own UI with useRange().

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

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

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

Hook

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

The useRange() Hook accepts parameters and returns APIs.

Usage

First, create your React component:

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

function CustomRangeInput(props) {
  const {
    start,
    range,
    canRefine,
    refine,
    sendEvent,
  } = useRange(props);

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

Then, render the widget:

<CustomRangeInput {...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 with useCallback() to avoid rendering endlessly. Objects and arrays are memoized so you don’t have to stabilize them.

attribute
type: string
Required

The name of the attribute in the records.

const rangeApi = useRange({

});

APIs

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

start
type: RangeBoundaries

The current value for the refinement, with start[0] as the minimum value and start[1] as the maximum value.

type RangeBoundaries = [
  number | undefined,
  number | undefined,
];
range
type: Range

The current available value for the range.

type Range = {
  min: number | undefined;
  max: number | undefined;
};
canRefine
type: boolean

Whether the user can further refine.

refine
type: (rangeValue: RangeBoundaries) => void

Sets a range to filter the results on. Both values are optional, and default to the higher and lower bounds. You can use undefined to remove a previously set bound or to set an infinite bound.

const { refine } = useRange(props);

// ...

const onRangeSubmit = (min, max) => {
  refine([
    Number.isFinite(min) ? min : undefined,
    Number.isFinite(max) ? max: undefined,
  ]);
};
sendEvent
type: (eventType: string, facetValue: string, eventName?: string) => void

Sends an event to the Insights middleware.
