Last updated: Dec 7, 2022
Hello, I am returning an object from sanity that contains a list. The list contains title and value options. When the data is fetched, only the value is returned. How do I return both the title and value?

Schema:

{
name: ‘type’,
title: ‘Type:’,
type: ‘string’,
options: {
list: [
{
title: “Plant Seeds”,
value: “plant-seeds”
},
{
title: “Initial Tower Setup”,
value: “initial-tower-setup”
},
{
title: “Complete Tower Setup”,
value: “complete-tower-setup”
},
{
title: “Transplant”,
value: “transplant”
},
{
title: “Maintenance”,
value: “maintenance”
},
{
title: “Harvest”,
value: “harvest”
},
{
title: “Teardown”,
value: “teardown”
},
]
},
validation: (Rule) => Rule.required(),
},

Query:
`const query = `*[_type=='gardenEvent' && references('${getActiveProgram()._id}')]``

Only returns the value, not the title

Can you take a screenshot of what you get in vision with that query?

The “type” for each object comes back as just the value. I’d like to return both the value and title.
Dec 7, 2022, 12:24 PM
Dont think you can do that (if i remember correctly)
Dec 7, 2022, 12:32 PM
The title you're specifying in your schema does not get written to your actual data when you're using a string field. If you want to make the title and the value available, you'll need to use an object instead.
