I am not sure if I am missing the point here, so here it goes. When I validate the "edit" screen of a row of my datasource with the fields (not a grid), should I use api_component.getvaluetx or api_datasource.getvaluecolumntx to retrieve the entered value? Both work.

Or should I only use api_component.xxxx on non datasource fields/columns?

Hi Raymond,

You can use both APIs to retrieve value of a datasource bound field. But ideally, we recommend api_datasource.getColumnValueXX for datasource bound fields and api_component.getValueXX for non datasource fields.

Best Regards,
