Includes:
BaseType::ModifiesAnotherType
Defined in:
lib/graphql/list_type.rb

Overview

A list type modifies another type.

List types can be created with the type helper (types[InnerType]) or BaseType#to_list_type (InnerType.to_list_type)

For return types, it says that the returned value will be a list of the modified.

For input types, it says that the incoming value will be a list of the modified type.

Given a list type, you can always get the underlying type with BaseType::ModifiesAnotherType#unwrap.

Examples:

A field which returns a list of items

field :items, types[ItemType]
# or
field :items, ItemType.to_list_type

A field which accepts a list of strings

field :newNames do
  # ...
  argument :values, types[types.String]
  # or
  argument :values, types.String.to_list_type
end
