Usage Of getRecord wire adapter

Let us discuss here how to use lightning/uiRecordApi module adaptors. This module includes wire adapters to record data and get default values to create records. It also includes JavaScript APIs to create, delete, update, and refresh records. Let’s discuss here how to use the getRecord wire adapter to get the Salesforce data without writing the apex class.

Syntax :


  • recordId—(Required) The ID of a record from a supported object.
  • fields—(Required) An array of fields to return. If the context user doesn’t have access to a field, an error is returned. If you’re not sure whether the context user has access to a field and you don’t want the request to fail if they don’t, use the optionalFields parameter.
  • optionalFields— (Optional) An array of optional field names. If a field is accessible to the context user, it’s included in the response. If a field isn’t accessible to the context user, it isn’t included in the response, but it doesn’t cause an error.
  • propertyOrFunction—A private property or function that receives the stream of data from the wire service. If a property is decorated with @wire, the results are returned to the property’s data property or error property. If a function is decorated with @wire, the results are returned in an object with a data property and an error property. For both the fields and optionalFields parameters, specify field names in the format ObjectApiName.FieldName or ObjectApiName.JunctionIdListName.


Error Handling

Use a Promise with then() and catch() blocks. You can display errors using toasts provided by the lightning/platformShowToastEvent module.
