I’m creating a UI Extension for field type “Entries”. On initialization I fetch the links with field.getValue(), although this only gives me the links. What would be the recommended way to resolve the actual entries?
Would you be able to provide us the actual snippet of code that you’re using for this?
Here’s the script: https://glitch.com/edit/#!/upbeat-windscreen?path=script.js:20:2
On line 20: “var references = api.field.getValue() || ;” I get the field value but this only gives me the link objects. I would like to have the actual entries in the references variable instead.
I can’t seem to find any real documentation or samples around working with the “Entries” field type in UI Extensions. Can you please point me to where it is?
I have the same issue here. Would appreciate some help.
The Extension SDK exposes a method
space.getEntry() that takes the entry’s ID as a parameter. You have to extract the ID from the link object and then call
space.getEntry() with said ID. This will return the full entry, allowing you to generate a preview to display.
