Hey all, how can i get a reference value of another field within the
hidden
property? For example, I want to show/hide a field based on the value of a reference field.
 defineField({
  name: 'industry',
  title: 'Industry',
  type: 'reference',
  to: [{type: 'industries'}],
}),
defineField({
  name: 'industryCustom',
  title: 'Industry (Custom)',
  type: 'string',
  hidden: ({ parent }) => {
    // need to get value of `industry` field above.
    // `parent` only holds `_ref` but not actual value
  }
}),

The hidden field can’t handle promises, so you won’t be able to get any values from the resolved
industries
reference. You’ll need to use a custom component to get access to the client and conditional rendering to handle it.
