Multilist in Sitecore JSS App

For the list data, Sitecore JSS offering "ContentList" as a field datatype. When you deploy it in Sitecore, it converts into "Treelist".

But what to do if you need "Multilist" instead of Treelist at Sitecore side?

Solution:
 

You have to specify "MultiList" as a string type when you define the Sitecore field definition for the component as

name: 'content'type: CommonFieldTypes.RichText },
name: 'articleList'type: 'MultiList'},

As you can notice here I defined "ArticleList" field as a "MultiList" datatype.

You can also set the datasource or query with this Multilist field definition as


name: 'articleList'type: 'MultiList'source: `query:./Articles/*`, },

Here I have set the datasource as a child folder "articles" of current Sitecore context item.

I hope this quick tip help you in Sitecore JSS App development.
