Linking inputs with different types

I was going through the documentation of Linked Inputs.
I tried to use $ref in String input type to target an OneOf dropdown but the string input is changing to dropdown
Can we populate a string input from a dropdown? also maintaining the sync between them
If string does not exist in dropdown we can make dropdown blank

Hi @RohitChattopadhyay,

there is no “real” linking between controls. What’s happening here is that both controls are bound to the same schema and data, therefore they are also automatically synced.

This is not possible when linking to two different sub-schemas, i.e. one of string type and the other being a oneOf as they’ll also link to different data. To sync between them you need for example custom renderer or need to control the data from the outside.
