Inputfield::get() method

Get a property or attribute from the Inputfield

  • This can also be accessed directly, i.e. $value = $inputfield->property;.

  • For getting attribute values, this will work but it is preferable to use the Inputfield::attr() method.

  • For getting non-attribute values that have potential name conflicts with attributes (or just as a reliable alternative), use the Inputfield::getSetting() method instead, which excludes the possibility of overlap with attributes.

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

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

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
keystring

Name of property or attribute to retrieve.

Return value

mixed null

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

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
