How to Access EntityReference?

Hi,

I have created a component which I have bound to a field on a form within Dynamics 365. I was trying to get the current record id and found documentation on the EntityReference object here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/developer/component-framework/reference/entityreference

 

However, I'm struggling to find samples of how to pass this into my component so that I can access the record id? Has anyone got the steps necessary to get this implemented?

Hello,

You can use following code:

let entityId = (<any>context.mode).contextInfo.entityId;
let entityTypeName = (<any>context.mode).contextInfo.entityTypeName;
