I have a custom fieldtype (used within Neo block) and I need to know the ID/content of entry it belongs to, when editing the entry.

I need to both populate field values based on value in other field (if present) and also perform validation on save by comparing with other fields in same entry.

So I need to know the entry content (or at least entry ID so I could fetch those) within getInputHtml and validate functions.

I know I could use $this->model and $this->element but those don't seem to provide any data related to entry


Found out that entry can be accessed with $this->element->owner
