FieldPropertyMetadata.Metadata properties

I was currently inspecting the properties of a bound multiline field for a PCF control that we are building using the Chrome debugger, and came across the following list of attributes from the control:


multi-line bound string propertiesmulti-line bound string properties


I understand that there's no distinguishing in JS the properties relevant to strings (I can see that the componentframework definition files ensures the correct properties for the property type).


What I noticed was that the type definitions for the property types was missing the property "EntityLogicalName".

I'm assuming this property has been added to the PCF control attributes property bag but the type definitions have yet to be updated to reflect this?

You can always use the : 

let contextInfo = context.mode.contextInfo;

in order to grab the entity logicalName where the PCF is attached.


Yes, I can see that output in the js, but the TS type definitions doesn't contain a contextInfo property on the context.mode interface


You can do something like that:

const contextInfo = <any>context.mode.contextInfo;
const entityTypeName = contextInfo.entityTypeName;
const entityId = contextInfo.entityId;

yes, I've seen that same thing posted in other threads, but also noticed that it's still not yet officially supported by the PCF framework.
