FocusManager

The FocusManager manages the focus state within TanStack Query.

It can be used to change the default event listeners or to manually change the focus state.

Its available methods are:

focusManager.setEventListener

setEventListener can be used to set a custom event listener:

tsx
import { focusManager } from '@tanstack/react-query'

focusManager.setEventListener(handleFocus => {
  // Listen to visibilitychange and focus
  if (typeof window !== 'undefined' && window.addEventListener) {
    window.addEventListener('visibilitychange', handleFocus, false)
    window.addEventListener('focus', handleFocus, false)
  }

  return () => {
    // Be sure to unsubscribe if a new handler is set
    window.removeEventListener('visibilitychange', handleFocus)
    window.removeEventListener('focus', handleFocus)
  }
})
import { focusManager } from '@tanstack/react-query'

focusManager.setEventListener(handleFocus => {
  // Listen to visibilitychange and focus
  if (typeof window !== 'undefined' && window.addEventListener) {
    window.addEventListener('visibilitychange', handleFocus, false)
    window.addEventListener('focus', handleFocus, false)
  }

  return () => {
    // Be sure to unsubscribe if a new handler is set
    window.removeEventListener('visibilitychange', handleFocus)
    window.removeEventListener('focus', handleFocus)
  }
})

focusManager.setFocused

setFocused can be used to manually set the focus state. Set undefined to fall back to the default focus check.

tsx
import { focusManager } from '@tanstack/react-query'

// Set focused
focusManager.setFocused(true)

// Set unfocused
focusManager.setFocused(false)

// Fallback to the default focus check
focusManager.setFocused(undefined)
import { focusManager } from '@tanstack/react-query'

// Set focused
focusManager.setFocused(true)

// Set unfocused
focusManager.setFocused(false)

// Fallback to the default focus check
focusManager.setFocused(undefined)

Options

- focused: boolean | undefined

focusManager.isFocused

isFocused can be used to get the current focus state.

tsx
const isFocused = focusManager.isFocused()
const isFocused = focusManager.isFocused()
