Hi,

You can get to the parent panel by using btn.findParentByType("panel") and then using find("name", "title") on the panel to find the title widget.

Thanks for the post and the above links give the information about how to retrieve in jsp.Actually my intention is retrieve in the js(DamAdmin.Actions.js) itself and manipulate them.Like New File,New Folder in DAM area i have added menu item Open Form.This form has three widgets as said above.

 "title":{

                            "fieldLabel":CQ.I18n.getMessage("Property2"),
                            "fieldSubLabel":CQ.I18n.getMessage("Optional"),
                            "fieldDescription":CQ.I18n.getMessage('It is a value of "property2"'),
                            "name":"title",
                            "allowBlank":false
                        },

"valBtn": {
                             "xtype":"button",
                             "text":"Validate P1",
                             "autoHeight":true,
                             "autoWidth":true,
                             "clickEvent":"click",
                             "scope":this,
                             "handler":function(btn)
                             {
                                //CQ.Ext.Msg.alert("clicked button name:"+btn.getText());
                                var prop1=this.getField("Prop3").getValue();
                                CQ.Ext.Msg.alert("Entered Prop1 Value:"+prop1);     
                             }

                             
                        },
               

can i get the reference of text field and entered value in  handler method of button?
