I can get the value of the field from the view object like this:

foreach ($view['#view']->result as $row){
      $field_slide_banner = $row->_entity->get('field_slider_banner')->getValue();     

However, in this case I get the target_id of the referenced image file, but I need to get the full rendered output data, which depends on format that I set for this field at the view display, for example, that should be the URL of the image in my case.

In other words, I want to be able to get final output data or HTML markup programmatically for any view field from the given row of executed view object.

Use the following code.

foreach ($view->result as $row) {
  // Change the full view with your view mode.
  $render_array = $row->_entity->field_slider_banner->view('full');
  $field_slider_banner_markup = \Drupal::service('renderer')->renderRoot($render_array);

Alternatively, you can use the following code.

foreach ($view->result as $id => $row) {
  $my_field_value = $view->style_plugin->getFieldValue($id, 'field_name');

    Thanks, it works and I can see the full output of the field. Also, I have found other solution, where it is possible to get field value without surrounding markup like this: $result = $view->style_plugin->getFieldValue($id, $field); where id is the row number and field is the name of the field.

  • Pretty sure this is not the answer; this is how to get a field from the primary views entity. i.e. an entity field; not a views field.
