I guess you use PropertyFieldListPicker. In your scenario I think the only convenient option is to go with custom property pane control implementation.

You should build a component, which allows users to select a list, then dynamically populates fields from this list as checkbox element. Wrap this component as a custom property pane. You can store settings (selected list and fields) in json format as a string property of a webpart.

Check out this tutorial on how to build a custom property pane.

  • Technically it's possible, however, it's a way more difficult than with react. What's even worse, you will not find any good tutorials (except for react of course). Jan 14, 2019 at 6:29
