My requirement is to create a sidebar component on the account object which will show a few fields that should only show if the program__c picklist field = card. i have done some searching and i am unsure of the best way of doing this. so far i attempted to create a compact layout and add the fields to it but then i am only allowed to assign it based on record type of the account, not a picklist field.

  • I think the problem you are facing is that components aren't currently updated when an object changes. It requires a page refresh for the component to see the change to the object. Either you can wait for the push data cache invalidation feature to be released (Spring '19) or you can add a "Check Again" button that will call a controller to check the current selected value on the object. – Ixalmida Mar 20 '19 at 18:04

  • I was actually able to do this using a related record lightning component and page layout. – Logie C Mar 28 '19 at 21:29
