Content Blocks - Is it Possible to Conditionally Hide Array Types?

Last updated: Jun 28, 2022
Hey, all! I have an array of various object types and I want to conditionally hide some of those array types based on the value of another field. I've tried a bunch of different things and nothing seems to work. Would appreciate any advice! Here's an example of what I'm trying to do (for the last item):
  name: 'blocks',
  title: 'Content Blocks',
  type: 'array',
  of: [
    { type: 'introBlock' },
    { type: 'subscriptionBlock' },
    { type: 'pressMentionsBlock' },
    { type: 'videoBlock' },
    { type: 'recirculationBlock' },
    { type: 'profileBlock' },
    { type: 'eventBlock' },
    { type: 'blogFeedBlock' },
    { type: 'imagesBlock' },
    { type: 'preFooterBlock' },
      type: 'blogListingBlock',
      hidden: ({ document }) => document.pageType !== 'blogListing',

There currently isn't a way of conditionally showing options inside of an array. You could use conditional fields to return an entirely different array depending on another field though.

Thanks for the response! I ended up having some more complex requirements for singleton pages, so I just used a different document altogether that has a different set of blocks, but what you're suggesting was the next thing I tried and it worked well. Appreciate it!
