Validation Rule - Only allow one member in an array.

Last updated: Feb 26, 2021
I have a validation rule set to only allow 1 member in an array.But, the “Add” button still shows in the studio...
Would be nice if this was conditional so it would be hidden (or dimmed) when the validation rule takes effect.


{   title:"Merke", 
    name:"manufacturer", 
    type: "array", of: [
         {type:'reference',
          to: [ {type:"manufacturer"}]
         }
     ],
     validation: Rule => Rule.max(1).error('Du kan bare ha ett Merke per kjøretøy. Velg Chassisprodusent ved tvil.'),   
    fieldset:"main"
},

Hi Johannes, there's no built-in way to do this for now. However, you could consider customising your array functions. Here's an example that hides the Add button when a max of (1) item is reached, based on the native array component.
To implement it, in your 
sanity.json
 file, add:
{
      "implements": "part:@sanity/form-builder/input/array/functions",
      "path": "./components/CustomArrayFunctions.js"
}
This is the relevant component -

Latest version of the native component for comparison:
