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.
