Thanks for your suggestion John, but that would require me to know all possible field names in advance (so I could hide/show the correct one conditionally). There are infinite possibilities in my case.
What about using acf_update_field to write the field to the database? From includes/api-field.php:
/* * acf_update_field * * This function will update a field into the DB. * The returned field will always contain an ID * * @type function * @date 1/10/13 * @since 5.0.0 * * @param $field (array) * @return $field (array) */ function acf_update_field( $field = false, $specific = false )
I could construct a field object and call this function perhaps?
