On catalog page, I want to display custom attribute (code=inhoud2) near each product. I have tried to fetch it in different ways, it works with other attributes with plain text fields but for attributes by which a value has to be chosen in the backend from a Dropbox it will return a number instead of the chosen option.

Can anyone help me with this? (Option "Used in Product Listing" and show on front end is set to Yes for this attribute).

methods I have used so far in the list.phtml are:

returns nothing

<?php echo $_helper->productAttribute($_product, $_product->getInhoud2(), 'inhoud2') ?>

returns numeric value

<?php echo $_product->getData('inhoud2'); ?>

returns numeric value

<?php echo $_product->getData('inhoud2'); ?>
