multiple choice field in transformation - split | to list

L Younkins asked on August 30, 2022 15:14

I have a news repeater that is using a transformation. I have a multiple choice field that shows the category of the news type. It works, but as it feeds onto the page, it originally was separated by a |. I was able to replace the | with a space, but it still displays the fields together. I need them to be separate. See image. I need Athletics, Featured, and Scholarships to be listed separately. In doing a search here on devnet, I found a script that split the field into a list, but it gives me an error. Here is my code: Image Text

Here is the current output: Image Text

Another way would be creating a custom transformation method. Its input would be the multiple choice field value. In the method's logic you will separate the list according and the output would be your desired format.

Hi L Younkins,

You are getting this result because your code executed gives just one span element with a few words separated with spaces:

<span class='category'>Articles  Featured  Scholarships</span>

You need to modify the code to get the following result instead, to wrap your categories in separate spans:

<span class='category'>Articles</span><span class='category'>Featured</span><span class='category'>Scholarships</span>
