My SPFX contains extension that adds two commands in Document List:

Elements.xml:

<CustomAction
      Title="My Commands"
      RegistrationId="101"
      RegistrationType="List"
      Location="ClientSideExtension.ListViewCommandSet"
      ClientSideComponentId="887c888e-abd4-4552-ad51-7ff1d526e3ba">
  </CustomAction>

MyCommandsSet.manifest.json

{
  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/spfx/command-set-extension-manifest.schema.json",

  "id": "4d7c888e-abd4-4552-ad51-7ff1d526e3ba",
  "alias": "MyCommandsSet",
  "componentType": "Extension",
  "extensionType": "ListViewCommandSet",

  "version": "*",
  "manifestVersion": 2,

  "requiresCustomScript": false,

  "items": {
    "COMMAND_1": {
      "title": { "default": "My Command 1" },
      "type": "command"
    },
    "COMMAND_2": {
      "title": { "default": "My Command 2" },
      "type": "command"
    }
  }
}

These two commands are placed in both Command Bar and Context Menu. But it's not that I want. How can I add one command like submenu with these two commands in it? So I want to have one command (e.g. "My Commands") that will work as menu and show two sub-commands: "My Command 1" and "My Command 2".

Example: Something like this

How to group the list command using SPFx ListView Command Set extension?

As a workaround, we can use PnP PowerShell to achieve it.

Example:

  • thank you for github link. I've voted up for this feature. You solution is interesting but can't be done in SPFX scope :( – 23W Nov 6 '19 at 11:59
  • Using PnP PowerShell just as a workaround. – LZ_MSFT Nov 7 '19 at 1:46
  • Is it possible to customize at runtime whether "custom tab" is visible or not? For example if I want it be visible for some type of items in list (e.g. by file extension in documents list) and invisible for others. – 23W Nov 7 '19 at 4:47
