Hi , Is there any alternative way, writing some javascript code and fetching the values?

Best way is to use SLing Model and inject the MF into the model and read the values in HTL.

Why would you want to hack this by using Javascript when HTL is very easy to render the values entered into the Multifield?

<div

    data-sly-use.multiItems="aem.community.mf.core.models.Multifield">

    <div data-sly-list.head="${multiItems.products.listChildren}">

        <div style="height:250px;"><img src=${head.pathbr} height=200 width=270 style="padding:4px"/><h2>${head.product}</h2>

                             <p>${head.desc}</p>

                             </div>

                             <hr>

   </div>

</div>

Hi smacdonald2008, I tried using the below sightly code for my multifield component.         

  • ${item.linkText}

    where linkText is my multifiled node name. wont't this be the correct approach?

Follow that article referenced above and you will see exactly how it works.

For a MF - you need to inject the MF node into the SLing MODEL (as shown in the article) - if you do not - it will not work. I recommend following it EXACTLY step by step - and you will see how it works,
