Update ACF block data when not selected

  • Hi all,

    Basically, I want to be able to update an ACF block’s attribute (and potentially re-render it) whilst it is not selected, and so the ACF input for that attribute does not currently exist on the page.

    When a block is selected, in the sidebar there would be the input to change the value of the attribute, which would then re-render the block. I want to simulate that change event, so that my block receives the new value, without requiring user input.

    I have looked at the docs but not found anything too useful, the closest was acf.getField(‘field_6058fe03eedf2’).val( ‘myValue’ ) which would change the selected blocks attribute, but I’d need to do this for multiple unselected blocks.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.
