This should give you what you need


If you are using this from a collection, make sure the attribute you use is marked as "Used in product listing" and that you rebuilt the indexes.

  • it does not give any output , metal is multiselect dropdown attribute , and using this code on product listing page

  • in this case, it depends on the context. If $_product comes from a product collection, maybe the attribute metal is not added to the collection. You should add more info in your question. Provide the context that uses this.
