Typescript Support

List of exported Typescript Types.

Important: Typescript ^4.3 above is the recommended version to work with react hook form.

NestedValue

import React from 'react';
import { useForm, NestedValue } from 'react-hook-form';
import { Autocomplete, TextField, Select } from '@material-ui/core';
import { Autocomplete } from '@material-ui/lab';

type Option = {
  label: string;
  value: string;
};

const options = [
  { label: 'Chocolate', value: 'chocolate' },
  { label: 'Strawberry', value: 'strawberry' },
  { label: 'Vanilla', value: 'vanilla' },
];

export default function App() {
  const { register, handleSubmit, watch, setValue, formState: { errors } } = useForm<{
    autocomplete: NestedValue<Option[]>;
    select: NestedValue<number[]>;
  }>({
    defaultValues: { autocomplete: [], select: [] },
  });
  const onSubmit = handleSubmit((data) => console.log(data));

  React.useEffect(() => {
    register('autocomplete', {
      validate: (value) => value.length || 'This is required.',
    });
