I have a page of field images which are coming out quite weirdly when I kint their values. I can't seem to get the image url and the alt tag.

The code in the twig file looks like this:


{% for item in items %}
    {{ kint(item) }}
{% endfor %}

It's output looks like this: enter image description here

Now I can easily get to the url by doing:

{% for item in items %}
    {{ file_url(item.content['#markup']) }}
{% endfor %}

So how can I get the alt tag?

You can get the alt of image with:

  • as you can see from the output above I don't seem to have the #item output on this field

  • In the field twig there is two foreach one for multiple and other for no multiple fields, and also check your field display settings from admin/structure/types/manage/YourContentType/display i have Image as formatter not url to image, what you have ?

  • The single field #item is only added by the image field formatter, but the field items element['#items'] are added for all field formatters. For a single value field it doesn't matter and you can use both, for a multi value field you need to add a key to the loop to access each item.
