How to get data out of formdata by fieldName [message #1278725] Thu, 27 March 2014 19:18 Go to next message

On the server I load formData. Now I have to get a particular value from this formdata but I only have the fieldname of the field I need. For example fieldname = "lastname"

If I call formdata.getFieldById(fieldname) I get an AbstractFormFieldData. Although with the debugger I can see it holds the value I need, I cannot get it.

Is there a way to get this value?

Regards Bertin

Your problem comes from the difference between AbstractFormFieldData and its subclass AbstractValueFieldData.

Here a possible snippet:

private Object getSingleValueFromFormData(AbstractFormData formData, String id) {
  AbstractFormFieldData fieldData = formData.getFieldById(id);
  if (fieldData instanceof AbstractValueFieldData) {
    return ((AbstractValueFieldData) fieldData).getValue();
  throw new IllegalArgumentException("the FormFieldData is not a ValueFieldData");
