I’ve got this ‘key:: value’ which I use for referencing videos. So in this case
Now I’d like to get the filepath for this specific video.
But I’m struggling with the sequence I need to get the info for the key ‘Video’.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
The syntax you’re looking for is
dv.current().Video, or the normalised variant of
dv.current().video. The latter one is lowercasing the field, and replaces space with dashes (if needed). For more information on field names, see Adding Metadata - Dataview
Also note that if you actually want to get the filepath of a link, you’ll need to use either something like
dv.current().video.path or in a DQL query something like
meta(file.video).path ). And you then got access to the following parts of the link:
display – The alias, or displayed portion of the link
embed – A boolean indicating whether this is an embed or not
path – The full path of the file including extensions
subpath – The subpath, like when linking to a header or section
type – The type of the link… Most are
file, and some are
