Discussion

If the UX component has been bound to tables, it gets the primary key value for the specified table alias. If a row is not specified, the alias is a top level alias. Otherwise, a row indicates the row in a Repeating Section. Returns false if no key was found (which indicates that you are editing a new record, rather than an existing record).

Example 

Get the primary key for the INVOICE_ITEMS alias in row 3 of the Repeating Section:

{dialog.Object}.getKey('INVOICE_ITEMS',3);
