  • Last Updated : 17 Mar, 2021

The Query.prototype.get() function is used for the update operations, and it returns the value of a path in the update’s $set.

Syntax:  

Query.prototype.get()

Parameters: This function has two parameters, one is path parameter and other is optional val parameter to set the value.
Return Value: This function returns Query Object.
Installing mongoose : 

npm install mongoose

After installing the mongoose module, you can check your mongoose version in command prompt using the command. 

npm mongoose --version

After that, you can just create a folder and add a file for example, index.js as shown below.



Database: The sample database used here is shown below: 
 

Project Structure: The project structure will look like this: 
 

Example 1:

index.js




const mongoose = require('mongoose');
  
// Database connection
    useNewUrlParser: true,
    useCreateIndex: true,
    useUnifiedTopology: true
});
  
// User model
const User = mongoose.model('User', { 
    name: { type: String },
    age: { type: Number }
});
  
const query = User.updateOne({name:"Gourav"},
                             { $set: { name: 'New Gourav' } });
console.log("GET Name:",query.get('name')); 

Run index.js file using below command: 

node index.js

Output: 

GET Name: New Gourav

Example 2:

index.js




const express = require('express');
const mongoose = require('mongoose');
const app = express()
  
// Database connection
    useNewUrlParser: true,
    useCreateIndex: true,
    useUnifiedTopology: true
});
  
// User model
const User = mongoose.model('User', { 
    name: { type: String },
    age: { type: Number }
});
  
const query = User.updateOne({name:"Gourav"}, 
                             { $set: { name: 'Gourav New' } });
console.log("GET Name:",query.get('name')); 
  
app.listen(3000, function(error ) {
    if(error) console.log(error)
    console.log("Server listening on PORT 3000")
});

Run index.js file using below command: 

node index.js

Output: 

Server listening on PORT 3000
GET Name: Gourav New
