I'm using Cobalt with Cobalt types as comments. In Cobalt types as comments I custom added another comments (for replies). So I have "comments" and "replies".

Now I would like to show "comment" in "replies" form with modifiying one of the input fields (textarea). Can I get parent fields (comment fields) in this reply form with API?

OK. In form template you can get parent.

$parent_id = JFactory::getApplication()->input->get('parent_id');
echo CobaltApi::renderField($parent_id, 12, 'full');

Where 12 is ID of the field and 'full' is how to show field as in article list template or in article full view.
