How to delete a row when a button is clicked inside a DataGrid column?



I have a data table with users and I want to make a delete button work on the rows, but it seems that it cannot be done by reactish means.

The DataGrid is used like this:


I have a column with custom renderCell function that shows some action buttons. The column definition is this:

  field: "actions",
  headerName: "",
  width: 120,
  type: "",
  sortable: false,
  renderCell: (
    params: GridCellParams
  ): React.ReactElement<any, string | React.JSXElementConstructor<any>> => {
    return (
        userId={params.getValue(, "id")?.toString()!}

The params object offers a few properties but I do not know how to do something like this: delete the row on which a button was clicked, a button that is defined in the UserRowActions component.

I would also like to find whether it is not possible to do this using the MUI DataGrid component as it is today.

I don’t know what to do since the API does not look reactish to me right now.

I use:

"@material-ui/core": "^4.12.1",
"@material-ui/data-grid": "^4.0.0-alpha.30",
"react": "^16.14.0",


I made a context specially for the data grid action buttons:

export const DataGridContext = React.createContext<{ deleteUser?: (uid: string) => void }>({});

// ...

const { data: users, isLoading, isError } = useGetUsersQuery();

const [usersRows, setUsersRows] = useState<IUser[]>([]);

useEffect(() => {
  if (typeof users !== 'undefined') {
}, [users]);

<DataGridContext.Provider value={{ deleteUser: (uid: string) => {
  const newRows = [...usersRows];
  const idx = newRows.findIndex(u => === uid);

  if (idx > -1) {
    newRows.splice(idx, 1);
    rows={usersRows} // ...

// In the UserRowActions component:

const dataGrid = useContext(DataGridContext);

// ...
