  • Abir, can you please provide some additional details.

    1. Page Type.

    Record List Page. For Record List page, where there is no single record in context you will need to use a select query API variant like rbf_selectValue and add a where clause to ensure a single record is available in result set.

    Record View/Details page: You can directly use a token here such as {!status#code} or {!status#value} where status is integration name of picklist field

    Record Edit/New/Status Change Form Pages: For form pages to retreive value of a form control consider using client-side api rbf_getPicklistCode(). Else use tokens as state above to retreive  currently set value.

    2. For Picklist are you trying to retrieve integration code/id/value?

    3. If you are still seeing errors, please share error details. Also, if you could create a sample app demonstrating the issue and share in this forum thread it will help in resolving the issue quickly and steadfastly.

  • hi , thank you Mohammed Siraj for replying.

    so , I need to display on alert or console.log the value selected of the picklist (type :status workflow) .

    you can find a simple exemple attached. in the object person , exactly the record : leika TH ; need to get the status (see the script on the design page of Vue Person ) .

    is it clear ? if not please ask for more detail .

    tkx .         


  • Abir, have reviewed the app you have shared. It required a very minor correction in the script component.

    For tokens that evalute to string literals, we need to include them in quotes as follows:

    console.log('{!status#value}') ;

    Have also attached the corrected app for your reference.


  • it is working , thank you :)
