Is it possible somehow, maybe with filters or relationship between select type and media type to connect them in a way that when I select one element from the dropdown list, then in the media field the image changes.
E.g. i select the word 'Cat' in the Select field then in the media field I get an image of a cat, that is already uploaded
you can probably use field hooks
I'll give it a try,thanks
I cant really get hold of the concept of using hooks.
Is it possible to read data from one field inside of a hook of another field?
Yes you can access the full document data from a hook, here is a list of the properties you can use:https://payloadcms.com/docs/hooks/fields#arguments-and-return-values
Here is one way you can achieve this (screenshot), using a relationship field and hook that returns a different media based on the select field and the tags on the media item. I've used an
hook here but you could use a different hook. Also the relationship field won't display the image, but you could add a custom component to this field that renders the image.
Thank you @jesschow, i will try it out soon, i'm sure that it will work this way. Thank you enormously.
Also, sorry about being such a noob, I still have to understand Payload, to put the puzzle pieces together.
Looks like a great opportunity as well to exercise writing custom components. Sweet. 🙌🙌🙌
By the way, can I use something like Next's Image component to render the image inside Payload?
It's working as expected, I changed the hook to afterChange and it changes the Media right after I hit the Save button. Neat. Thank you so much
