I am creating a Field Customizer to display a hyperlink in a column in a document library view following this tutorial: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/spfx/extensions/get-started/building-simple-field-customizer

I need the absolute path of the document to create the result link. I tried several things with event.listItem.getValueByName() but I only get values of the columns already in the view. How do I read all columns of the list item?

  • can you check with event.listItem.getValueByName("FileRef") ? Jul 20, 2018 at 13:06
  • Thank you that works! Its the relative URL, but I can use that. Weird enough FileRef is not in the event.listItem.fields array.

You can use event.listItem.getValueByName("FileRef") to get the path of the document in library. This will give you a server relative URL of the file in the document library.

If you want to have an anonymous link, then you can use event.listItem.getValueByName('.spItemUrl'). This will work for anonymous users.
