I am trying to add some default values for some field for lightning-record-form in lightning web component in salesforce.

I have search through the web and found something like this.


Where fields are represented in the controller like this,|



fields = [
    { fieldApiName: 'Name', objectApiName: 'Custom_Object__c' },
    { fieldApiName: 'Account__c', objectApiName: 'Custom_Object__c'}

both works fine if I don't need any predefined value. I am trying to add predefined value using the fields representation syntax like,

fields = [
    { fieldApiName: 'Name', objectApiName: 'Custom_Object__c', value: 'Sample Name' },
    { fieldApiName: 'Account__c', objectApiName: 'Custom_Object__c', value: '0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXQAF'}

Default value is not setting.I don't know if I am using the proper way or not, or there could be another way. Please someone help me with this?

Note: I know that I can use lightning-record-edit-form and lightning-input-field to full fill my requirements. In this way I have to add every field using lightning-input-field which I don't want.

Thanks in advance.

As per the documentation,

Prepopulating Field Values

lightning-record-form does not support prepopulating of field values when the form loads. To create a form that displays custom field values, use the lightning-record-edit-form component.

  • I know about lightning-record-edit-form, was looking solutions for lightning-record-form. Thanks for the reply.
