MapProperty <T>





Field?: ComponentType<FieldProps<T, any, any>>

If you need to render a custom field, you can create a component that takes FieldProps as props. You receive the value, a function to update the value and additional utility props such as if there is an error. You can customize it by passing custom props that are received in the component.


Preview?: ComponentType<PropertyPreviewProps<T, any>>

Configure how a property is displayed as a preview, e.g. in the collection view. You can customize it by passing custom props that are received in the component.


columnWidth?: number

Width in pixels of this column in the collection view. If not set the width is inferred based on the other configurations


customProps?: any

Additional props that are passed to the components defined in field or in preview.


dataType: map

Datatype of the property


defaultValue?: null | T

This value will be set by default for new entities.


description?: string

Property description, always displayed under the field


disabled?: boolean | PropertyDisabledConfig

Is this field disabled. When set to true, it gets rendered as a disabled field. You can also specify a configuration for defining the behaviour of disabled properties (including custom messages, clear value on disabled or hide the field completely)


editable?: boolean

Should this property be editable. If set to true, the user will be able to modify the property and save the new config. The saved config will then become the source of truth.


expanded?: boolean

Should the field be initially expanded. Defaults to true


hideFromCollection?: boolean

Do not show this property in the collection view


keyValue?: boolean

Render this map as a key-value table that allows to use arbitrary keys. You don't need to define the properties in this case.


longDescription?: string

Longer description of a field, displayed under a popover


name?: string

Property name (e.g. Product)


pickOnlySomeKeys?: boolean

Allow the user to add only some keys in this map. By default, all properties of the map have the corresponding field in the form view. Setting this flag to true allows to pick only some. Useful for map that can have a lot of sub-properties that may not be needed


previewProperties?: Partial<Extract<keyof T, string>>[]

Properties that are displayed when rendered as a preview


properties?: PropertiesOrBuilders<T>

Record of properties included in this map.


propertiesOrder?: Extract<keyof T, string>[]

Order in which the properties are displayed. If you are specifying your collection as code, the order is the same as the one you define in properties, and you don't need to specify this prop.


propertyConfig?: string

You can use this prop to reuse a property that has been defined in the top level of the CMS in the prop fields. All the configuration will be taken from the inherited config, and overwritten by the current property config.


readOnly?: boolean

Is this a read only property. When set to true, it gets rendered as a preview.


spreadChildren?: boolean

Display the child properties as independent columns in the collection view
