I would like to use the ArrayField component inside my custom component. I already found this discussion on Github:

https://github.com/payloadcms/payload/discussions/1729

I tried the way which was used in the linked plugin-seo repo but for the ArrayField I get the error "props.admin is undefined". Has someone maybe already got this working?

    Hey, if you have some time, could you share the code you already have? Optimally like explained here (even if it's not an issue):

    https://github.com/payloadcms/payload/blob/master/.github/reproduction-guide.md

    Would make it super easy for people like me to experiment with it & find a solution ^^

    Hey, thanks for your reply. In the meantime I was able to figure it out.

    I built a wrapper component for the ArrayInput which I imported manually from the dist folder. I am not sure if this is considered the right way but it works for now. To use the ArrayInput in my custom component I can now use it like this: " <CustomArrayField label={'Form 1'} name={'array-custom'} fields={[{ name: 'textfield-array-01', label: 'Text Field 1', type: 'text' }]} /> ". Using the original component directly did not work because it needs the fieldTypes property set (I just imported fieldTypes from the dist folder)



    I am still not sure what the path property is about. Does this influence the key in the database or why is it needed?
