    Hi,

    I created a Post field and set the Conditional Logic in Advanced as below.

    • Visible All
    • post_type = page

    However, when Gutenberg is enabled, conditional logic does not work.
    This field has been displayed for all post types.

    add_filter( 'rwmb_meta_boxes', 'your_prefix_register_meta_boxes' );
    
    function your_prefix_register_meta_boxes( $meta_boxes ) {
        $prefix = '';
    
        $meta_boxes[] = array (
            'title' => esc_html__( 'test', 'text-domain' ),
            'id' => 'test',
            'post_types' => array(
                0 => 'post',
                1 => 'general',
            ),
            'context' => 'normal',
            'priority' => 'high',
            'fields' => array(
                array (
                    'id' => $prefix . 'post_vw01o0dnsbe',
                    'type' => 'post',
                    'name' => esc_html__( 'Post', 'text-domain' ),
                    'post_type' => array(
                        0 => 'post',
                    ),
                    'field_type' => 'select_advanced',
                    'visible' => array(
                        'when' => array(
                            array (
                                0 => 'post_type',
                                1 => '=',
                                2 => 'page',
                            ),
                        ),
                        'relation' => 'and',
                    ),
                ),
            ),
        );
    
        return $meta_boxes;
    }

    Hi Yumikom,

    I see you set a condition to show a field based on post_type. Unfortunately, the plugin doesn’t support that kind of condition. You can change the visibility of a field or a meta box based on a value of another field or another input.

    Hi,

    I’m using Metabox for many years. A license is also bought every client.

    This condition was used so far, and it was no problem. It can’t be used in Gutenberg.
    Please support post_type as a field condition even for posts using Gutenberg.
    I’m having trouble getting Metabox in the classic editor I’ve used up to now to be able to migrate to Gutenberg.

    Regards,
    Yumiko

    Hi Yumiko,

    Thanks a lot for being our customer for years! I really appreciate that and your support!

    Regarding this issue: a problem here is you set the meta box to appear to only 2 post types post and general. So, when you set the conditional logic for post type = page, it can’t work (because the meta box is not loaded for that post type). Can you please change the post_types parameter of the meta box to include page and try again? I’ve checked and seen that it supports post_type rule.

    Hi Anh,

    I’m always thankful for your support.
    I was relieved to support post_type rule.
    I use this condition a lot.

    As you suggested, I tried with simple settings.
    But again, the condition is not working in Gutenberg, which is fine in the classic editor.

    With the following settings, I want this field to be displayed only when post_type is ‘page’, but it will be displayed in ‘post’, ‘page’ and ‘general’.

    
    add_filter( 'rwmb_meta_boxes', 'your_prefix_register_meta_boxes' );
    
    function your_prefix_register_meta_boxes( $meta_boxes ) {
        $prefix = '';
    
        $meta_boxes[] = array (
            'title' => esc_html__( 'test', 'text-domain' ),
            'id' => 'test',
            'post_types' => array(
                0 => 'post',
                1 => 'page',
                2 => 'general',
            ),
            'context' => 'normal',
            'priority' => 'high',
            'fields' => array(
                array (
                    'id' => $prefix . 'post_mnfi92e2ko',
                    'type' => 'post',
                    'name' => esc_html__( 'Post', 'text-domain' ),
                    'post_type' => array(
                        0 => 'page',
                    ),
                    'field_type' => 'select_advanced',
                    'visible' => array(
                        'when' => array(
                            array (
                                0 => 'post_type',
                                1 => '=',
                                2 => 'page',
                            ),
                        ),
                        'relation' => 'and',
                    ),
                ),
            ),
        );
    
        return $meta_boxes;
    }
    

    Thanks and Regards,
    Yumiko

    Hi Yumiko,

    I found the problem. The post_type is not a Meta Box field, so using it the normal way doesn’t work. You need to use outside conditions.

    Change your code to:

    add_filter( 'rwmb_meta_boxes', function ( $meta_boxes ) {
        $prefix = '';
    
        $meta_boxes[] = array (
            'title' => esc_html__( 'test', 'text-domain' ),
            'id' => 'test',
            'post_types' => array(
                0 => 'post',
                1 => 'page',
                2 => 'general',
            ),
            'context' => 'normal',
            'priority' => 'high',
            'fields' => array(
                array (
                    'id' => $prefix . 'post_mnfi92e2ko',
                    'type' => 'post',
                    'name' => esc_html__( 'Post', 'text-domain' ),
                    'post_type' => 'page',
                    'field_type' => 'select_advanced',
                    'class' => 'your-custom-class',
                ),
            ),
        );
    
        return $meta_boxes;
    } );
    

    Note that I added a your-custom-class to set a CSS class for your field. And then add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file (or using a functionality/Code Snippet plugin):

    add_filter( 'rwmb_outside_conditions', function( $conditions ) {
        $conditions['.your-custom-class'] = [
            'visible' => ['post_type', 'page'],
        ];
        return $conditions;
    } );

    Hi Anh,

    Thank you for your teaching about Outside condition.
    I solved what I wanted to do!

    Thanks!
