50 LWC Lightning Web Component Interview Questions Part 1

    Lightning record form is used by Salesforce Lightning Data Service by which we can create/edit/view the single record.

    Below is the example for the same:
  1. When to use force:recordData and when not to?
    1. force:recordData is used as a Constructor for Salesforce Aura Component which is used to either get or create a record. 
    2. force:recordData is useful when we are working with a single record and not useful for bulk records.
    3. Below is simple syntax
  1. Below is simple syntax

<aura:attribute name=”record” type=”Object” />

<aura:attribute name=”simpleRecord” type=”Object” />

  1. Is LWC Replacing the Aura Component?
    Ans: No, it’s not.
  2. What are bound expressions and what are unbound expressions?
    1. {#expression} (Unbound Expressions)
    2. {!expression} (Bound Expressions)
    3. <c:child childAttr=”{!v.parentAttr}” />
    4. <c:child childAttr=”{#v.parentAttr}” />
    5. {#v.parentAttr} is an unbound expression. Any change to the value of the childAttr attribute in c:child doesn’t affect the parentAttr attribute in c:parent and vice versa.
    6. {!expression} (Bound Expressions) Data updates in either component are reflected through bidirectional data binding in both components. Similarly, change handlers are triggered in both the parent and child components.

<design:attribute name="greeting" label="Greeting" />
  1. What is the use of renderer in Aura?

<aura:component implements="flexipage:availableForRecordHome,force:hasRecordId,lightning:actionOverride" access="global" >

  1. How to extend one Aura Component to another?
  1. To extend the component we need to add 2 attributes to component which are extensible and abstract below is the example
  2. <aura:component extensible=”true” abstract=”true” >
  3. Code for Parent Component

   <aura:component extensible=”true” abstract=”true” controller=”ObjectPanelController”>

   <aura:attribute name=”sObjectType” type=”String” required=”true” />

   <aura:attribute name=”records” type=”Object[]” />

   <aura:attribute name=”sObjectInfo” type=”Object” />

<aura:component extends=“c:objectPanel”>

   <aura:attribute name=”showAccountWarning” type=”Boolean” default=”true” />

   <aura:set attribute=”sObjectType” value=”Account” />

   <aura:set attribute=”fields” value=”AccountNumber,Website” />

   <aura:iteration items=”{!v.records}” var=”rec”>


           <a onclick=”{!c.deleteRecord}”>Del</a> |

           <a onclick=”{!c.navigateToRecord}”><ui:outputText value=”{!rec.Name}”/></a>

           <ui:outputText value=”{!rec.AccountNumber}” />

           <ui:outputURL value=”{!rec.Website}” />
