It is often useful to be able to get the value of a field, for example in client-side validation, or data manipulation. This method provides that ability for individual fields.
When used while multi-row editing, this method has the following behaviour:
- If all items being edited have the same value for this field, that value is returned
- If the items being edited have different values for this field,
field().multiGet()should be used to access individual values if this is the case.
In addition to this method, Editor provides a number of other methods that can be used to get and set field values - each with their own speciality. Please refer to the Related selection below for links to these methods.
