how to get the input value in dialog which create by xmlfragment in fiori

Dear friends,

I used this code in my controller to create a dialog though xmlfragment, now I want to get the input value in the dialog how do I make it ? I try to use the same way to get the value just like this in my controller,but it didn't work.

var iordering = this.getView().byId("ApprovalInput");

SearchHelp: function() {

if (!this._oViewsearchDialog) {

this._oViewsearchDialog = sap.ui.xmlfragment("Demo.view.SearchHelpDialog", this);





some of my xmlfragment code:

<Label design="Bold" id="VSDThemeLabel" text="Approval Status"/>

<Input id="ApprovalInput" placeholder="Enter Product ..." showSuggestion="true" suggestionItems="{/PurchaseOrderCollection}" type="Text">


<core:Item text="{ApprovalStatus}"/>



Thanks for your sincerely answer!

    check Retrieving Control Instances by their ID. The help describes how you can retrieve a control placed on a fragement for the different constellations.

    • Hi,

      because your xml fragment is not embedded into your xml view but is a dialog and you are also not setting the fragment ID of your fragment your coding will not work.

      So either you use sap.ui.getCore().byId("ApprovalInput"); to get your control, or you set an ID for your fragment (this._oViewSearchDialog = sap.ui.xmlfragment("frgSearchHelpDialog", "Demo.view.SearchHelpDialog",this);) and determine the control via sap.ui.core.Fragment.byId("frgSearchHelpDialog", "ApprovalInput");
