I have added a new drop-down attribute called features to products.

It is basically a list of options that I want to show on the front end. I have used this code to my list.phtml file for get option values:

<?php echo $_product->getfeatures() ?>

But it will display as number instead of text on fronted.

How I can display drop down option value as text ?

The below picture shows 2 features but instead of text it shows as numbers. Can anyone help?

  • <?php echo $_product->getfeatures() ?> – DevAnd Oct 7 '16 at 19:42

if you use:

<?php echo $_product->getFeatures();?> 

it will return option value of attribute like 18,19

if you use:

<?php $_product->getAttributeText('features');?> 

it will return an Array

so first get an Array and convert it to String

<?php $features = $_product->getAttributeText('features');?> 
<?php echo implode(",", $features) ;?>

It will display your Text


Within either catalog/product/view.phtml or catalog/product/list.html you can use this to output the attribute text:

echo $_product->getAttributeText('features');

If you want to display attribute option value then you should write code like this

<?php $_product->getAttributeText('features');?> 

insted of

<?php echo $_product->getFeatures();?>

You can get your selected options like:

$x = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('your_attribute_code');

and then get the values of your selected options:
