  • Hi John,

    Thanks for your response. And you definitly pointed me in the right direction. Using a filter that runs on all fields was the solution I was looking for. I now basically removed the whole filter that had the dynamic part and moved it all to the initialize method. I only had a nesting level issue so I switched to a the ‘afc/prepare_field’ filter instead.

    Just for your reference here’s my adjusted code (I only need to do a minor cleanup). And thanks again!

    add_filter('acf/prepare_field', function($field) {
        $fieldObject = get_field_object($field['key']);
        if(!str_starts_with($fieldObject['name'], 'select')){
            return $field;
        $layouts = acf_get_fields('group_5f33b50973315')[0]['layouts'];
        $blocks = array_filter($layouts, function($layout){
            return in_array('source', array_column($layout['sub_fields'], 'name'));
        foreach ($blocks as $block) {
            if($fieldObject['name'] !== 'select' . ucfirst($block['name'])){
            $field['choices'] = [];
            $groups = get_field($block['name'], 'options');
            foreach($groups as $group){
                $field['choices'][$group['groupID']] = $group['name'];
        return $field;
