Description

It is often useful to be able to get the value of a field, or multiple fields, for example in client-side validation, or data manipulation. This method provides that ability.

When used wile multi-row editing, the values returned for each field are governed by the following rules:

  • If all items being edited have the same value for the field, that value is returned
  • If the items being edited have different values for the field, undefined is returned. multiGet() or 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.
