Get Record Id in Lightning Web Component

Getting current record id in lightning web component(lwc) is very easy.

If a component with a recordId property is used on a Lightning record page, the page sets the property to the ID of the current record. In the component’s JavaScript class, use the @api decorator to create a public recordId property. Here is example of javascript class.

import { LightningElement, api } from 'lwc';
export default class LWCExample extends LightningElement {
    @api recordId;

To get current record id in lightning component(aura component), we had to implement force:hasRecordId to get record id in lightning aura component. But in lightning we component its very simple, we only need to use recordId property with @api decorator.

Lets create simple lightning web component to get account detail.

Create recordIdExampleLWC lightning web component from Visual studio code. Use Control shift P and type SFDX: Create Lightning Web Component.


In html file, we are using lightning-record-view-form to show account detail using recorid. We can also use recordid to query Account record or some other details related to account.

    <div class="acc-container">
        <lightning-record-view-form record-id={recordId} object-api-name="Account">
            <div class="slds-grid">
                <div class="slds-col slds-size_1-of-2">
                    <lightning-output-field field-name="Name"></lightning-output-field>
                    <lightning-output-field field-name="Website"></lightning-output-field>
                <div class="slds-col slds-size_1-of-2">
                    <lightning-output-field field-name="Industry"></lightning-output-field>
                    <lightning-output-field field-name="AnnualRevenue"></lightning-output-field>


import { LightningElement,api } from 'lwc';

export default class RecordIdExampleLWC extends LightningElement {
    @api recordId;


Lets apply some styles to our component

.acc-container {
    background: white !important;
    border: 1px solid black !important;


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<LightningComponentBundle xmlns="">

No we can add this lwc component on account detail page.

  • Go to Account tab.
  • Open any record.
  • Click Setup (Gear Icon) and select Edit Page.
  • Under Custom Components, find your recordIdExampleLWC component and drag it on right hand side top.
  • Click Save and activate.

We will have following output.

    Hi Ankush – thank you for the walkthru. I’m just beginning my journey in to Dev & LWCs. Regarding the example above what if I want to display a record w/ a certain criteria instead of the specific record I’m already on?
    I see line 3 on the recordIdExampleLWC.html code is:

    How would I write the code if I wanted to only display records where Status = Active & Checkbox__c = TRUE?

    Hi Ankur,

    I did the copy paste same code above. But it’s not able to get the recordId in the markup file from JavaScript.
    If in markup i just hardcode some account id, then it shows the value for that record.

    Please help
