I have a content type (Actuality) with an entity reference field to another content type (Event). In the referenced content type, I have a field_date field I want to print in the node--actuality.html.twig template file. I tried using {{ node.field_event_associated.field_date }}, but it doesn't work.

How can I print the field value of a referenced entity?

With a field_event_associated node field, you can get its value with {{ node.field_event_associated.value }}. That doesn't work for entity reference fields, for which you need to use {{ node.field_event_associated.entity.field_date.value }}.

  • Hi and thanks for your answer. I don't manage to access my values like this, the only thing i can do is : {{ content.field_evenement_associe[0]['#url'].options['entity'].field_date_event.value }} but i find it very complicated. Do i miss something ?

    If you apply the example from this answer you get a shorter version: {{ node.field_event_associated.entity.field_date.value }}.

If you want to render a properly formatted single field of a referenced entity you'll simply have to use the |view filter on the desired field of the referenced node.

Let's say the field_customer on my parent node references a customer content type entity that holds the customer's address in field_address.

{{ node.field_customer.entity.field_address|view }}

Use the referenced entity's display settings to define the format of the field you want to render.

Example on drupal.org


The value you're mostly looking for would be the title value:

{{ node.field_organisation_reference.entity.title.value }}

Output entity reference field value and create url on twig.

entity reference value : {{ node.field_name.entity.title.value }}

entity reference url : {{ url('entity.node.canonical', {'node': node.field_name.target_id}) }}
