FormData.get()

The get() method of the FormData interface returns the first value associated with a given key from within a FormData object. If you expect multiple values and want all of them, use the getAll() method instead.

Note: This method is available in Web Workers.

Syntax

get(name)

Parameters

name

A string representing the name of the key you want to retrieve.

Return value

A value whose key matches the specified name. Otherwise, null.

Examples

If we add two username values to a FormData using append():

formData.append('username', 'Chris');
formData.append('username', 'Bob');

The following get() method will only return the first username value:

formData.get('username'); // Returns "Chris"
