                    <item name="formElement" xsi:type="string">select</item>
                    <item name="visible" xsi:type="boolean">true</item>
                    <item name="dataScope" xsi:type="string">slider_location</item>
  • i think your datatype must be select – Rk Rathod Jun 10 '19 at 9:35
  • i added <item name="formElement" xsi:type="string">select</item> – Waqar Ali Jun 10 '19 at 9:47

You can simply get it with the select name attribute


Note: general → is the fieldset name, change it accordingly.

You can bind the it on change event:

    alert( this.value );
  • i added jQuery('select[name=slider_details[slider_location]]').val(); got a console error syntax error, unrecognized expression: select[name=slider_details[slider_location]] – Waqar Ali Jun 10 '19 at 9:57
