Issue with string previews not rendering when options are defined in Sanity.io

17 replies
Last updated: Aug 11, 2021
I’ve recently run into an issue where
string
previews don’t render when a list of options is defined. Once the options are removed, opening this
string
type to any value, the Preview works as expected. Previously this was not an issue, so I’m wondering if the latest Sanity update introduced this bug.
Thanks for any help! Schema code attached in thread.

export default {

      name: "size",
      type: "string",

Interesting. Your preview works for me both with and without
options.list
.

You mentioned that you recently ran into the issue. Was this same code working before but now isn’t? Or is this the first time you’ve tried it?

Currently running
@sanity/cli version 2.13.0
Jul 22, 2021, 6:36 PM
You caught a regression. It worked when I was on 2.13.0. Just upgraded to 2.13.1 and now get the same behaviour. I’m just working out which plugin causes it.

I appreciate your help with this, User!
Jul 22, 2021, 6:50 PM
My pleasure! It was @sanity/base. Rolling back to 2.13.0 worked for me. The way I did it was to delete node_modules, change the line in package.json to
"@sanity/base": "2.13.0",
, and then run
sanity install
. I’m just checking into what caused the regression.

Thanks again, User! I’ll roll back a version now and will keep a lookout for future updates. 👍
Jul 22, 2021, 6:59 PM
Thanks for reporting this, User. I’ve logged the issue here . I’ll mark this thread as completed as that issue will be the best place to track this, but I’ll try to follow up if I get word of a fix.
Jul 22, 2021, 7:28 PM
Hi User. 2.14.0 was released and resolves this issue. Please follow up if you notice any concerns. Thanks for reporting and for your patience! 🙌
