The following code works when I pass in the field name as a string to the get function. It doesnt when I use the field id. I want to use field id. The code is taken from the API sample for javascript

	await page(records, fetchNextPage) {
		// This function (`page`) will get called for each page of records.

		records.forEach(function (record) {
			console.log('Retrieved', record.get('my-field-name') );

How can I do it using field id instead of ‘my-field-name’?

I think he wants to get field values by specifying the field ID instead of the field name. Getting the record ID won’t help in that case.

I indeed want to get the field values by specifying the field id, not the field name.

Any news on this? As @David_Joyce mentioned I would like to get field values by id. I want to avoid field names in case those are updated so I'm using fieldIds to filter fields when selecting records but is not of much use if I cannot use the record.get() with the field Id.
