We want to display custom menu buttons in a document set. We haven't found a solution, through SPFx, which gives us information that the user is inside a document set. Neither Url or _sppageContextInfo object contains this information.

If there any way to get this information through SPFx?

Looks like Anita has a viable suggestion described in her article. It's not the prettiest, but it seems to be working.

Basically you check:

  • if your current list contains a specific content type. In your case it's Document set
  • check if the currently selected document has a specific content type. In your case it's a document.

The full article is here: SPFx associate listview command set to a content type.
