It is often useful to be able to programmatically set the value of a field, or multiple fields. This method provides that ability.

When used while multi-row editing, for each individual field specified in the fieldNames parameter, this method will set the field value for all items being edited to be the same value (that passed in). If you need the ability to set item values individually, please refer to the multiSet() or field().multiSet() methods.

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.
