I have a views-view-unformatted.html.twig template working fine where I can print fields from a view of nodes.

Example: having i = 3, print row number 3 title

{{ rows[i]['content']['#row']._entity.title.0.value }}

This view has also a working relationship with flag. I see it working in the view preview.

How can I print the flag link inside views-view-unformatted.html.twig?

  • Have you tried {{ rows[i]['content']['#row']._entity.flag_field_name.value }}? Replace flag_field_name with the actual field name of the flag field. Commented Oct 29, 2019 at 23:02
  • @RickBergmann, View > Devel gives a "link_flag" field. {{ rows[i]['content']['#row']._entity.link_flag.value }} is not producing anything.

  • It's difficult to tell without seeing the render array. Try to use {{ dump( rows[i]['content']['#row']._entity) }} that should list all the fields in the render array, then you can drill into the fields, and the link_flag should be listed there. Fields are usually prefixed with field_. Maybe paste the output of the dump in the question if it's not too long. Commented Oct 30, 2019 at 14:08
  • Edit: I see that flag does not prefix with field_. I am using the flag module in 1 of my projects. I will try to replicate this case in my project and post when I find something. Commented Oct 30, 2019 at 14:24

    Looks like there could be something renderable in the values array protected values -> array(10). I tried to reproduce this but I also find it more difficult to get flag values. Usually I make view blocks and render them in twig instead of using the view-unformatted template, and I use twig block template overrides to render the fields / content in the view. I can also suggest asking for a support request in the flag project page on Drupal.org, maybe someone can suggest another option there. Commented Nov 12, 2019 at 23:41

Not being able to find better solution nor documetation, I built this working hack:

  1. add a fake text field entity. IE: for articles: http://yoursite/admin/structure/types/manage/article/fields > Add field > Add text plain field

  2. hook the view in a custom module:

    function MYMODULE_views_pre_render(ViewExecutable &$view){
      if( $view->id() == 'VIEWID' ){
        foreach($view->result as $r) {
        // from https://www.drupal.org/comment/reply/295383/12504094
        $node = $r->_entity;
        $flag_link = [
          '#lazy_builder' => ['flag.link_builder:build', [
        '#create_placeholder' => TRUE,
      $flag_link = render($flag_link);
      $r->_entity->set('field_fake_flag_field', $flag_link); //.
  3. print (finally) your flag link in the twig template:

    {{ rows[i]['content']['#row']._entity.field_fake_flag_field.0.value }}

Twig is cool. It takes a while, sometimes.


I used {{ fields.link_flag.content }} in a views-view-fields--some_view_name.html.twig and that worked for me


I have found this

{{ view.style_plugin.getField(KEY, 'FIELD_NAME') }}
