Customize the UI

default

The slot to override the complete DOM output of the widget.

Note that when you implement this slot, none of the other slots will change the output, as the default slot surrounds them.

Scope

  • value: object: the current refinement. It contains name, count and isRefined.
  • canRefine: boolean: whether the refinement can be applied.
  • refine: (value: string) => void: the function to call with the provided value to update the refinement.
  • createURL: (value: string) => void: the function to generate a link from the provided value.
  • sendEvent: (eventType: 'click', facetValue: string) => void: the function to send click events.
    • The view event is automatically sent when the facets are rendered.
    • The click event is automatically sent when refine is called.
