Question: Can conditional logic (for a group of fields) be implemented (via UI extension) without re-building the entire entry editor form?
Backstory: I’d like to add conditional logic to a specific Contentful content model. The logic would start from radio buttons, where the user would make a selection, and different form content would appear according to their selection. Something along the lines of:
<bunch of other fields> ... <a selection field (e.g. radio button> If selected A, show fields 1,3,4 If selected B, show fields 3,5,2 If selected C, show fields 6,1,4 ... <bunch of other fields>
From what I understand, a custom UI extension is needed to achieve this.
Works: I have a test entry editor extension working; there’s control over individual fields and functions successfully run when user interacts.
However, as far as I can tell, to keep the rest of the original form appear as-is, I have to re-build all of the fields (and logic) from scratch in my entry editor extension. Is this the case? Is there no way to avoid this?
My original content model (pre-ui extension) is already a long form with many text fields. I simply need conditional logic in one area half way down the page, and would rather not have to re-build the entire form (watering down the value of using Contentful in the first place).
I do see field-level ui extensions are possible, but other fields on the page are not accessible by a field-level extension. It would be nice if there were groupings in the Contentful content model builder, such that you can have a group of fields, and then have a UI extension just for that group. Have I missed something?
