Retool 2.80

{{ self }}

Components can now reference themselves in the inspector using the {{ self }} keyword! Access any component properties using {{ self }}, like the component’s value/values, label/labels, settings like disabled, hidden, readOnly, and validation properties such as maxCount.

For example, in a component like Select or Multiselect, you can set the labels to dynamically update to the capitalized values with {{ }} –this will actually be the new default going forward! It also makes dynamic styling much more powerful–for example, you can style the Statistic component’s trend green when {{ self.secondaryValue > 0 }} and red otherwise to indicate upward or downward trends.

{{ self }} is available for all components, and works in their event handlers, too! We’ve updated a bunch of our components to use {{ self }} for better defaults–but we’re excited to see what you configure with it. Drop us a note in the community forum with any examples, feature requests, or feedback! This feature is available to all cloud customers, and will be included in the next on-premise release.
