I am trying to generate a PDF with Entity Print. Until then all is well.

In my Twig page, I try to make conditional displays. But I can’t get the conditions to work.

I render my fields using {{ content.field_custom }} and that also works fine.

But the condition don't work , when I do something like :

{% if content.field_custom == 'John' %} ...


{% set field = content.field_custom %}
{% if field == 'John' %}
{% endif %}

I need to do this in the fields twig template, can someone help me?

Many thanks

  • Your condition not working because content.field_custom value not equal Jonh. variable content.field_name is render array. So all values is includes string of template field render. Examples "<div>Jone</div>". You have to use strip tags for that. or using node.field_name.value for condition. – MrD Jun 15 at 1:09
  • Thank you for your quick reply. {% if (content.field_custom|striptags) == 'John' %} That didn't work for me though unfortunately. How to use it ? – Monster971 Jun 15 at 1:17
  • Because it is not a string, it is a render array. It will never just equal John. – Kevin Jun 15 at 1:36
  • try with content.field_custom|render|striptag or just node.field_custom.value – MrD Jun 15 at 1:39
  • Thank you again for your answer. It seems to be working but I'm still having a problem that I hadn't anticipated. My field is fed one by one token so, node.field_custom.value returns me the token ([current-user: field_custom: value]) and not the value of the token. How to solve this? – Monster971 Jun 15 at 13:34

I recommend the Twig Field Value module, which provides a field_value filter that you can apply directly to a field:

{{ content.field_name|field_value }}

Also, while this doesn't specifically answer your question, I would be remiss not to mention the handy and useful Twig Tweak module. It rocks! :)
