How should get the object context on child component. We have LWC as parent child on record page. I can able to read the record context this.ObjectApiName in parent component but not in child component.

Is there a way to pass from parent to child as this.objectAPiName can be initiliazed in connected call back or in any event call only.

In the child, you use:

@api objectApiName;

And in the parent, you set the value:

<c-child object-api-name={objectApiName}

These values should be available in the connectedCallback.

  • Thanks sfdcfox. Appreciate your answer. i tried this little differently. I think what you r mentioning is pass objectApiName itself to child objectApiName.I will try it out. I was passing parent objectApiName to a variable on child...
