I created a custom module which adds an input in shipping method for all products in the checkout page. I want to hide and show this input as per specific category products and replaced this old to new inputs on the checkout page. Does anyone knows this? Thanks in advanced.


<item name="shippingAdditional" xsi:type="array">
 <item name="component" xsi:type="string">uiComponent</item>
  <item name="displayArea" xsi:type="string">shippingAdditional</item>
     <item name="children" xsi:type="array">
        <item name="delivery_date" xsi:type="array">
           <item name="component" xsi:type="string">Module_name/js/view/delivery-date-block</item>

If your extension has a block to render the phtml (I hope it does) you could create a plugin and set a method as follows:

public function afterToHtml($subject, $result) { if (condition to show is true) { return $result; } else { return ""; } }

You can see how to create a plugin in http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/extension-dev-guide/plugins.html


To handle this in the javascript you are going to need to do a few steps:

  • Create a configuration for setting which categories you want to hide/show.
  • Create a config provider an set your business logic there
  • Load the data from your custom config provider at Module_name/js/view/delivery-date-block and set if the template should be visible or not.
  • At your template you could use a if binding http://knockoutjs.com/documentation/if-binding.html
  • @ Thiago Thanks for reply.. Actually I am showing custom input defining in checkout_index_index layout file and setting html template using knockout js file. Can you give me more details on which class I extends with "after" in plugin or how can I hide custom block. sorry for trouble, i am beginner in magento.
