You can get the fields from an InfoTable using .dataShape.fields, like below.  It will print the field name and the table's first row field value in the scriptlog.

 

let infoTableFields = infotable.dataShape.fields; // where "infotable" is the variable containing your InfoTable.

for (let fieldName in infoTableFields) {

    logger.info(fieldName + ": " + infotable[fieldName]);

}

 

To just get the number of fields, infotable.dataShape.fields.length should work (assuming the InfoTable exists and has data).

hi @DanWolf ,

In this situation, the input infotable is not having the data shape, it is created manually and fields were added dynamically based on the criteria's, when this dynamically added, need the length of the Field Names such that to proceed further Logic.

Hi @psp316r.

 

We're a little confused.  You indicated in your initial post that you needed the count of the number of fields in the infotable.  In your last response, you indicated you needed the length of the field names.

 

To clarify the request, please provide details of the use case so we can get a better understanding of what is needed.  How are you dynamically passing the fields?

 

Regards.

Hi @slangley ,

Apologies for the confusion, the use case is, the service generate/AddFields Dynamically based on the requirement. Once Dynamically generated, based on the Fields Count need to do some other operation !!

hope you understand !!

Hello, 

the getFieldCount() method returns the number of fields in the DataShape of this InfoTable as int.
