Below is my code

<aura:attribute name="newModule" type="Module__c" default="{'sobjectType' : 'Module__c',
                                                                   'EndDate__c' : '',
                                                                   'Name' : ''}"/>
    <aura:attribute name="ProgramId" type="Id" />

    <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}" />
    <aura:method name="ResetChild" action="{!c.handleReset}"/>

    <lightning:recordEditForm aura:id="NewModulePopUp" objectApiName="Module__c" onsubmit="{!c.createNewController}" 
                              onsuccess="{!c.showSuccess}" onerror="{!c.showError}">
    <lightning:messages />

        <lightning:inputField aura:id="namefield" fieldName="Name" value="{!v.newModule.Name}" />
        <lightning:inputField fieldName="ModuleType__c" value="{!v.newModule.ModuleType__c}"/>
        <lightning:inputField fieldName="ModuleStatus__c" value="{!v.newModule.ModuleStatus__c}"/>

        <lightning:button label="Create Module"  variant="brand" type="submit" name="createmodule"/>

Below is my Controller

 createNewController : function(component, event, helper){

            var action = component.get("c.createNewModule");
            console.log('MName' +component.get("v.newModule").Name); --> THIS IS BLANK

why is object binding not working here? Is something wrong? Request to help.

Thanks in advance!


You cannot use lightning:recordEditForm as you are trying to do.

First of all you have to enter recordId attribute in it, for editing a record, (without recordId for a new record), try reading the docs for understanding how to write this.

Second - you do not need to set the value attribute for each lightning:inputField - the values will auto-populate after you add the recordId attribute to the lightning:recordEditForm component.

Third - in your controller, if you want to get a value or set a value from code, you should do like this:

doInit : function(component, event, helper){
    // get value
    var nameValue = component.find("v.namefield").get("v.value");
    // set value
    component.find("namefield").set("v.value", "new value to set");

  • I have a similar requirement but I want to set the field every time user clicks a button. With this code the button works fine as long as the user has not updated the field manually, else it doesn't works – Monalisa Das Nov 5 '18 at 12:49
  • please post a different question about that – Itai Shmida Nov 5 '18 at 12:52
