Hey there! How to add a rich text block inside an array of structured content?I have this object for the content:


{
      title: "Content",
      name: "content",
      type: "array",
      group: "countryInfo",
      of: [
        // { type: "block" },
        { type: "textBlock" },
        { type: "image" },
        { type: "speedTest" },
        { type: "thePricingTable" },
      ],
    },
the `textBlock`object is this:

export default {
  name: "textBlock",
  title: "Text Block",
  type: "array",

  of: [{ type: "block" }],
};
but i get this error:

hey, did you add the textBlock to the /schema/ index.js(ts) file ?
you have to register all schemas there for sanity to find them

Hey, yes i did. I think the issue is that
textBlock
is an array and
content
is also an array. So it means array within an array, so maybe its not possible. I thought maybe there is another way how to approach this.

the error here indicates that what ever you are trying to map is not an array. Make sure you are mapping the right thing

textBlock
should be an object instead of an array

export default {
  name: "textBlock",
  title: "Text Block",
  type: "object",
  fields: [
    {
      name: "textBody",
      title: "TextBody",
      type: "array",

      of: [{ type: "block" }],
    },
  ],
};

cool, good you worked it out..
yeah 2D arrays are not supported, the workaround is using and object/array combo..
