Get Selected Record Type Id in Standard Button Overrides Lightning Component

Implementing lightning:hasPageReference interface, we can access the recordTypeId in lightning JS controller. lightning:hasPageReference provides access to the pageReference attribute.

The pageReference attribute can be populated only for the following page types:

  • standard__component
  • standard__navItemPage (for Lightning component tab only)
  • standard__recordPage
  • standard__objectPage


Lightning Component:

<aura:component implements="force:hasRecordId,lightning:actionOverride,lightning:hasPageReference">
    <!--Declare Attributes-->
    <aura:attribute name="selectedRecordId" type="Id" />
    <!--Declare Handler-->
    <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}"/>  
    <!--Component Start-->
    <div class="slds-m-around--xx-large">
        Selected Record Type Id : {!v.selectedRecordId}
    <!--Component End-->

Lightning JS Controller:

    doInit: function(component, event, helper) {
        //get record type Id
        var recordTypeId = component.get("v.pageReference").state.recordTypeId;
        component.set("v.selectedRecordId", recordTypeId);
        //get action name edit/new
        var actionName = component.get("v.pageReference").attributes.actionName;
        console.log('actionName-' + actionName);
        //get object API name
        var objectApiName = component.get("v.pageReference").attributes.objectApiName;
        console.log('objectApiName-' + objectApiName);
