InputfieldWrapper::get() method

Get a child Inputfield having a name attribute matching the given $key.

This method can also get settings, attributes or API variables, so long as they don't collide with an Inputfield name. For that reason, you may prefer to use the Inputfield::getSetting(), Inputfield::attr() or Wire::wire() methods for those other purposes.

If you want a method that can only return a matching Inputfield object, use the InputfieldWrapper::getChildByName() method .

Example

// Retrieve the value of a property
$value = $item->get("some_property");

// Retrieve the value of the first non-empty property:
$value = $item->get("property1|property2|property2");

// Retrieve a value using array access
$value = $item["some_property"];

Usage

$inputfield = $inputfieldWrapper->get(string $key);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
keystring

Name of Inputfield or setting/property to retrieve.

Return value

Inputfield mixed

Value of property or attribute, or NULL if not found.

Exceptions

Method can throw exceptions on error:

  • WireException - Only in core development/debugging, otherwise does not throw exceptions.
