    Create a dependant field in admin configuration in magento 2

    Updated 26 March 2024

    Let’s create a dependant field in admin configuration in magento 2.

    In this article we will learn how to create a dependant field in admin configuration in magento 2.

    So, the file which is used to define configurations in admin is system.xml. I  suppose that you know where this file is located in a custom module.

    So, here is the code in which, on select a option with value “1” from a drop-down list a text field (dependson) will appear :

    <!-- this is a drop-down field which contains options -->
    <field id="custom" translate="label comment" sortOrder="1" type="select" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
        <label>Please Select a Value : </label>
        <!-- source file contains the array of options of drop-down list -->
    <!-- this is a text field which depends on the option value -->
    <field id="dependson" translate="label comment" sortOrder="2" type="text" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
        <label>Enter the Name : </label>
            <field id="custom">1</field>

    And if you want to create a field dependant on two or more values, use the below code :

        <field id="custom" separator=",">0,1</field>

    In above code if you select options with values “0” or “1” from drop-down list then the text- field will be appeared in the admin configuration.

    That’s all in this article, hope it will help you to add a dependant field in admin configuration. Try the above code and if you have any issue just comment below. 🙂
