Get visible fields in a specific view

Is it possible to get visible fields for a chosen table and view? I checked the Airtable scripting documentation and I cannot find the property to check if a field is visible for that view

Hi @Carmel94 - you can get information about the fields in a table, but not from a view. The fields from the table will be all fields.


for (let field of base.getTable("Table").fields) {
    output.text(`Field "${field.name}" (${field.type}) options:`);
    output.inspect(field.options);
}

Check out the Airtable API documentation, you should be able to improvise a fetch request that will retrieve the data you need. Filtering views is a typical use case for the API. As to why this kind of behavior isn’t more readily available from within the Scripting app, :man_shrugging:
