Error when editing field in local studio, resolved by starting over.

Last updated: Mar 23, 2022
hello, i’m trying to follow this tutorial on Creating a custom input component. I make it to this point (https://youtu.be/Sg-H5CKc6Dk?t=686 ) — but whenever I edit the field in my local studio, i get an error I can’t figure out:
Uncaught TypeError: _formBuilder.default is undefined

the error goes back to line 22:
onChange(PatchEvent.from(inputValue ? … )

not sure what i’m doing wrong here i think i’ve copied the example exactly

Jimmy, can you please paste your component's code somewhere and send it here?

& in my `schema.js`:

        {
          title: 'Shape',
          name: 'shape',
          type: 'url',
          inputComponent: ShapeInput
        }

Hey Jimmy, thanks for your question. Out of curiosity maybe try rebuilding the studio after these changes are made and refreshing it in the browser. Also if possible can you re-post your
gist
it seems to be out of date or not working when attempting to visit it to look over your code

import React, { useEffect, useState } from "react";
import PatchEvent, { set, unset } from "@sanity/form-builder";
import { FormField } from "@sanity/base/components";
import { TextInput } from '@sanity/ui';

const ShapeInput = React.forwardRef((props, ref) => {
  const {
    type,
    value,
    readOnly,
    placeholder,
    markers,
    presence,
    compareValue,
    onFocus,
    onBlur,
    onChange
  } = props;

  const handleChange = React.useCallback((event) => {
    const inputValue = event.currentTarget.value
    onChange(PatchEvent.from(inputValue ? set(inputValue) : unset()))
  }, [onChange]);

  return (
    <FormField
      description={type.description} // Creates description from schema
      title={type.title} // Creates label from schema title
      __unstable_markers={markers} // Handles all markers including validation
      __unstable_presence={presence} // Handles presence avatars
      compareValue={compareValue}
    >
      <TextInput 
        value={value}
        readOnly={readOnly}
        placeholder={placeholder}
        onFocus={onFocus}
        onBlur={onBlur}
        onChange={handleChange}
      />
    </FormField>
  );
});

export default ShapeInput;

again); refreshed; still getting the same error
