Fields component media field using absolute url instead of relative

Joomla Asked on December 11, 2021

I use the Fields component and I have a field "Media". You can choose an image this way. But this spits out a full tag. This should be no problem but in my case I need it to be a full absolute url instead of relative. Does someone know how to achieve this or should I just use a regex to change the url myself?

I think you are looking for the rawvalue property of the field object

/* Rearrange Fields for use */
foreach($this->item->jcfields as $jcfield){
    $this->item->jcFields[$jcfield->name] = $jcfield;

$absolute_path_to_image = JUri::base() . $this->item->jcFields['your-field-name']->rawvalue;

<?php echo JUri::base() . $yourimagevariable;?>

Which will generate:
