GetItem Method (getItemRequest)

Retrieves a set of Attributes for an item that matches the primary key.

The GetItem operation provides an eventually-consistent read by default. If eventually-consistent reads are not acceptable for your application, use ConsistentRead . Although this operation might take longer than a standard read, it always returns the last updated value.

	GetItemRequest getItemRequest
)
Parameters

Container for the necessary parameters to execute the GetItem service method on AmazonDynamoDB.

CopyGetItem sample
// Create a client
AmazonDynamoDBClient client = new AmazonDynamoDBClient();

// Define item key
//  Hash-key of the target item is string value "Mark Twain"
//  Range-key of the target item is string value "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer"
Key key = new Key
{
    HashKeyElement = new AttributeValue { S = "Mark Twain" },
    RangeKeyElement = new AttributeValue { S = "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" }
};

// Create GetItem request
GetItemRequest request = new GetItemRequest
{
    TableName = "SampleTable",
    Key = key,                    
};

// Issue request
GetItemResult result = client.GetItem(request).GetItemResult;

// View response
Console.WriteLine("Item:");
Dictionary<string, AttributeValue> item = result.Item;
foreach (var keyValuePair in item)
{
    Console.WriteLine("{0} : S={1}, N={2}, SS=[{3}], NS=[{4}]",
        keyValuePair.Key,
        keyValuePair.Value.S,
        keyValuePair.Value.N,
        string.Join(", ", keyValuePair.Value.SS.ToArray()),
