I have created a custom attribute (color_materials) in Magento admin, which input type is set to dropdown. I'm trying to get this attribute value programatically, and I have the following code.
$product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->loadByAttribute('sku',$this->getSku($_item)); $productOption = $product->getData('color_materials');
The output i got is a number, which is stored in catalog_product_entity_int. But I want to get it's associated text, not a number. How can I achieve this?
