I am looking to extract the multilist , dropdown list field value of an item using PowerShell query.

    $item = Get-Item -Path master -ID "{110D559F-DEA5-42EA-9C1C-8A5DF7E70EF9}"

$rawIds = [Sitecore.Data.Fields.MultilistField]$item.Fields["My checklist field name"]

$selectedItems = $rawIds.GetItems()

foreach($selectedItem in $selectedItems){
    $selectedItem.DisplayName
}

Error I am getting is You cannot call a method on a null valued expression

  • What have you tried? There is nothing special about getting a field value from either of these

Cast $item.Fields["FieldName"} to Sitecore.Data.Fields.MultilistField:

$multilistField = [Sitecore.Data.Fields.MultilistField]$item.Fields["FieldName"]

$multilistItems = $multilistField.GetItems()

foreach($multilistItem in $multilistItems){
    # do whatever you want with item from multilist
}

EDIT AFTER OP CHANGED THEIR QUESTION

The error you get means that one of your variables is null.

Check which one is that. It can be either

  • $item itself
  • or $item.Fields["My checklist field name"]
