I am trying to build a custom input component. I tried to use the path to get the correct value from the field. But in my group, all inputs are receiving the same path/value. What i am missing here?



Simple range slider component:


import React from 'react';
import { useField } from 'payload/components/forms';
import { Label } from 'payload/components/forms';
import { Props } from 'payload/components/fields/Number';

const RangeSelect: React.FC<Props> = (props) => {
    const { path, label, required } = props;
    const { value = 0.5, setValue } = useField({ path });
    return (
        <div>
            <Label htmlFor={path} label={label} required={required} />
            {value} // Changes for all inputs
            <input
                type='range'
                min='0'
                max='1'
                step='0.01'
                onChange={e => setValue(e.currentTarget.value)}
            />
        </div>
    );
};

export default RangeSelect;


import { Field } from 'payload/types';
import RangeSelect from '../components/RangeSelect';

const Classification: Field = {
    name: 'classification',
    type: 'group',
    label: 'Classification',
    fields: [
        {
            name: 'option1',
            type: 'ui',
            label: 'Option1',
            admin: {
                components: {
                    Field: RangeSelect
                }
            },
        },
        {
            name: 'option2',
            type: 'ui',
            label: 'Option2',
            admin: {
                components: {
                    Field: RangeSelect
                }
            },
        }
    ]
};

export default Classification;

    Hi! Sorry to answer late, but better late than never



    Change the type of both fields to number



    UI type is strictly for presentational purposes, therefore it doesn't have any path



    And because both of your fields don't have any path, they act as a one, as path is an empty string for UI fields
