Combining ReactInstant Search Widgets with React Hook Form Version
TLDR Uma asks if they can combine ReactInstant Search widgets with React Hook Form version widgets. Jason suggests asking in the Instantsearch github repo, but suspects they'd need to switch all widgets to the hooks version.

- How can we convert the widgets that are only available on the React Hook Form version? Can they be used interchangeably?
-Also, how do we stop the search results from populating in the background while they are checking off filtering criteria? We want it to only show the search results after clicking the show results button at the bottom of our filtering form.
Unfortunately this is not possible:

You would have to build a custom widget to do this, similar to what’s described here: https://www.algolia.com/doc/guides/building-search-ui/going-further/improve-performance/react-hooks/#turn-off-search-as-you-type

• What can we do if we need some UI widgets that are currently only provided as being available in the React Hook form version?
• Can we have some widgets that are on React Instantsearch and others with React Hook form and run them together at the same time within one filtering form?
But my hunch is that if you want to use widgets from the hooks version of instantsearch, you would have to switch all widgets to the hooks version.
