I am using jsonforms with Angular and can’t find an easy way to set values of all controls afer re-rendering the form. I tried using setData method of jsonformsService and when, after initializing it, I take a look at state - data is updated, but controls seem empty, no values are shown. Refreshing the form after did not help. Is there something I’m missing?
are you using the latest versions of JSON Forms (i.e. one of the
3.0.0-beta.X versions)? If yes, then you should be invoking JSON Forms via its root component which offers an
@Input data. So all you need to do is to hand over a new
data prop there.
Note that it actually needs to be a new object instance as we otherwise bail out of performance reasons. A convenient way to create such a new instance automatically if you only want to update a single deeply nested attribute is to use lodash’s
