};

function useMention()

A hook that provides the state for social mentions that responds to keybindings and key-presses from the user.

This is used by the SocialMentionDropdown component and can be used by you for a customized component.

The only prop required is the list of data in order to support keybinding and properly selecting the index for you. The data must have a label and id key. The label is the text that should be shown inside the mention and the id is whatever unique identifier that can be used.

You can also add other supported attributes which will be added to the mention node, like href and whatever you decide.

Signature:

export declare function useMention<Data extends MentionExtensionAttributes = MentionExtensionAttributes>(props: UseMentionProps<Data>): UseMentionReturn<Data>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
propsUseMentionProps<Data>

Returns:

UseMentionReturn<Data>

function useMentionAtom()

A hook that provides the state for social mention atoms that responds to keybindings and key-presses from the user.

The difference between this and the useMention is that useMention creates editable mentions that can be changed over an over again. This creates atom mention which are inserted into the editor as non editable nodes. Backspacing into this node will delete the whole mention.

In order to properly support keybindings you will need to provide a list of data that is to be shown to the user. This allows for the user to press the arrow up and arrow down key.

You can also add other supported attributes which will be added to the mention node, like href and whatever you decide upon.

Signature:

export declare function useMentionAtom<Data extends MentionAtomNodeAttributes = MentionAtomNodeAttributes>(props: UseMentionAtomProps<Data>): UseMentionAtomReturn<Data>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
propsUseMentionAtomProps<Data>the props that can be passed through to the mention atom.

Returns:

UseMentionAtomReturn<Data>

function useMenuNavigation()

This hook provides the primitives for rendering a dropdown menu within

Signature:

export declare function useMenuNavigation<Item = any>(props: MenuNavigationProps): UseMenuNavigationReturn<Item>;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
propsMenuNavigationProps

Returns:

UseMenuNavigationReturn<Item>

function useMultiPositioner()

A positioner for your editor. This returns an array of active positions and is useful for tracking the positions of multiple items in the editor.

import { Positioner } from 'remirror/extensions';
import { useMultiPositioner } from '@remirror/react';

const positioner = Positioner.create({
...config, // custom config
})

const MenuComponent: FC = () => {
const positions = usePositioner(positioner, []);

return (
<>
{
positions.map(({ ref, bottom, left, key }) => (
<div style={{ bottom, left }} ref={ref} key={key}>
<MenuIcon {...options} />
</div>
)
}
</>
)
};

Signature:

export declare function useMultiPositioner(positioner: PositionerParam, deps: unknown[]): UseMultiPositionerReturn[];

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
positionerPositionerParamthe positioner which will be used
depsunknown[]an array of dependencies which will cause the hook to rerender with an updated positioner. This is the only way to update the positioner.

Returns:

UseMultiPositionerReturn[]

function usePositioner()

A hook for creating a positioner with the PositionerExtension. When an active position exists for the provided positioner it will return an object with the ref, top, left, bottom, right properties.

Signature:

export declare function usePositioner(positioner: StringPositioner, isActive?: boolean): UsePositionerReturn;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
positionerStringPositionerthe positioner to use which can be a string or a Positioner instance.
isActiveboolean

(Optional) Set this to a boolean to override whether the positioner is active. true leaves the behaviour unchanged.

In a recent update, the positioner is now automatically memoized for you.

Returns:

UsePositionerReturn

Remarks:

Must apply the ref to the component when called.

import { usePositioner } from '@remirror/react';

const MenuComponent: FC = () => {
const positions = usePositioner('bubble');

return (
<div style={{ bottom, left }} ref={ref}>
<MenuIcon {...options} />
</div>
);
}

const Wrapper = () => (
<Remirror extensions={[]}>
<MenuComponent />
</Remirror>
)

function usePositioner()

Signature:

export declare function usePositioner(positioner: Positioner | CallbackPositioner, deps: unknown[]): UsePositionerReturn;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
positionerPositioner | CallbackPositioner
depsunknown[]

Returns:

UsePositionerReturn

function useSuggest()

This hook allows you to dynamically create a suggester which can respond to user input of activation characters or regex patterns.

By adding a suggester it is possible to keep track of what the user has typed and receive meaningful information in return.

This includes

  • The range of the matching text - The matching text value - The query value, which excludes the matching character (or character regex). - The matching capture groups [FULL_MATCH, MATCHING_CHARACTER, CUSTOM_GROUPS]

The return value has two keys, exit and change which can both be undefined. The reason for including both the exit and change return values is that it's possible for both to occur at the the same time during a **jump** from one [[Suggester]] _match_ to another suggester match.

The cursor has exited and entered (changed) at the same time.

Signature:

export declare function useSuggest(props: UseSuggesterProps): UseSuggestReturn;

Parameters:

ParameterTypeDescription
propsUseSuggesterProps

Returns:

UseSuggestReturn
