Cannot Read Only Property 'ListingElements' of Object '#<Object>'

Hello everyone!Hope someone can help me with an issue. I have 2 fields in object. I’d like to choose something from the array of “reference” at the first field. And depends on it make a request and fill the next field automatically. I’m working with it in a custom validation Rule at the first field, but I have an error “`Error validating value: Cannot assign to read only property 'listingElements' of object '#&lt;Object&gt;`’”

It’s appears on line “`doc.parent.listingElements = productRefs;`”
Is it posible to do what I want? Please contact me in case you know what I’m talking about.

You should be able to achieve this by creating a custom Input component - one that renders the standard select menu for the references, and, after it is updated, patches the document to set the value for the second field.
You can't use the validator to set field values, but you can use
to validate it based on the reference. I.e.:

validation: Rule =&gt; Rule.custom((value, context) =&gt; {
   // get the parent object
   const parent = context.parent;
   // If there is a reference in the first field,
   // make this one required
   if (parent.referencesField.length &gt; 0) {
      return Rule.required()(value);
   // Otherwise, return true (field is valid)
   return true;
