lightning-record-form - render with sections

The new "lightning-record-form" Lightning Web Component is great, but it doesn't fully replicate layouts. For instance, layout sections aren't replicated. Is there any way to do this? Or plans for the sections to be supported in future?

Hi,

Greetings to you!

Yes, in LWC, Lightning Record Form doesn't support sections as of now. Please refer to below link from salesforce stack exchange exactly with a similar issue.

You can use lightning/ui*Api to retrieve sections in LWC.

Khan,

Thank you - I thought that was the case, but was hoping I wouldn't have to!

The RecordUI call for "getRecordCreateDefaults" returns the info. Looks like I might try to use that for now....
