I have this below lightning-record-edit-form. I want to get the value from Name lightning-input-field so that i can do some manipulation at javascript end.

Currenlty i am getting null on load of the form.

How to get the value.


<lightning-record-edit-form record-id={recordId} object-api-name="Test__c" onload={handleOnLoad}>
<lightning-input-field variant="label-stacked" class="name" field-name="Name"></lightning-input-field>

JS -

  handleOnLoad() {
        let name= this.template.querySelector('.name');
handleOnLoad() {
    let name = this.template.querySelector('.name').value;

This will work.

BUT above approach is not good. You can get all the values based on recordId as below

handleOnLoad(event) {
    var record = event.detail.records;
    var fields = record[this.recordId].fields; // record['0010K000026Y******'].fields;
    const accName = fields.Name.value;      
    //const myfieldVal = fields.myfield__c.value;
