How to get the type of pluginViews properties

class Hub implements PluginSpec {

    view(eView) {
        return new LinkPlugin(eView);

    props: EditorProps = {
        handleKeyDown: (view, event) => {
            const {state} = view;
            const {selection} = state;
            const {from, to} = selection;


I took a log of handleKeyDown’s view.

i fond pluginViews properties

Since I am using typescript, I want to use the property, but there is no related information even when I search, so I am using the any type. How can I get the type of pluginviews?

const linkPlugin = ((view as any).pluginViews)[0] as LinkPlugin;

That’s not part of the public interface, so its type is not in the type definitions, and you should not be touching it. (Exploring the interface through devtools is not generally a good idea for JS libraries, since you’ll just end up finding private interfaces that aren’t documented and might change between versions. Rely on the docs instead.)

Thank you for quick response.

Is there a separate way to access the PluginView when hadleKeyDown occurs without using the pluginViews property?

Below is how I currently implement the plugin.

class LinkPlugin implements Plugin {
    spec: PluginSpec<any, any> = {
        view: (view) => new LinkPluginView(view)

    getState(state: EditorState<any>) {
        return state;

    props: EditorProps<Plugin<any, any>, any> = {
        handleKeyDown: (view, event) => {
            const linkPlugin = ((view as any).pluginViews)[0] as LinkPluginView;
            return false

Oh, I solved it by just importing the LinkPluginView contents into the LinkPlugin class.
