Take the following "car" product: Volkswagen Golf.

It has a multiselect attribute car_options with the following possible options and their ids:

  • Airco (id=123) selected
  • Radio (id=124) selected
  • Bluetooth (id=125)
  • Navigation (id=126)

Radio and Airco are selected for this product. How can I get those two values (radio, airco) and display them? $_product is given.


Try this:

echo $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('car_options')->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);

  • I get no output! This is not a dropdown, but a multiselect attribute! – SPRBRN Jun 27 '14 at 11:48
  • It should still work with a multiselect, I just tried it myself. Try var_dump($_product->getData('car_options'); and check the output. It should be a comma separated string, if it's not then I can only imagine a 3rd party module is interfering. – Mayers Jun 27 '14 at 12:41
  • Still no output. We use several modules, but I don't know of any that messes with the attributes. – SPRBRN Jun 27 '14 at 13:07
  • If $_product->getData('car_options') returns NULL, it means it's not added to your product collection. We will need to know more about where you are trying to access this attribute – Mayers Jun 27 '14 at 13:36
  • I've found a solution - see my answer. – SPRBRN Jun 27 '14 at 13:48

$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance(); $product = $objectManager->get('Magento\Catalog\Model\Product')->load($product_id);

$attributevalues= $product->getResource()->getAttributeRawValue($product_id,'my_custom_attribute_code',$storeid);

it works.. Hope it help you..

The following code

  1. returns the value ids of the selected options for this product: 123,124
  2. turns that into an array: array(123,124)
  3. then finds the label of those options: 123=>Airco and 124=>Radio
  4. and returns the values in a text string: Airco, Radio
$_attribute_code = 'car_options';
$car_options_csv = Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/product')->getAttributeRawValue($productId, $_attribute_code, $storeId); // returns: 123,124
$car_options = explode(',', $car_options_csv);
$attributeId = Mage::getResourceModel('eav/entity_attribute')->getIdByCode('catalog_product',$_attribute_code);
$attribute = Mage::getModel('catalog/resource_eav_attribute')->load($attributeId);
$attributeOptions = $attribute ->getSource()->getAllOptions();

$res = '';
foreach($attributeOptions as $a)
    $l = $a['label'];
    $m = $a['value'];
    if (strlen(trim($l))>0 && in_array($m, $car_options))
        $res .= trim($l) . ', ';
echo substr($res, 0, -2);;

  • Ouch - you don't usually wanna go down that road. Especially since Mayer's answer above works fine. I'm also not sure if you're not bypassing Magento's translation system this way - haven't checked though. – workflow Oct 1 '14 at 21:46

Thanks @Mayers, his solution is too good not to override the native getAttributeText:

 public function getAttributeText($attributeCode)  
    return $this->getResource()

and to add to the customer model as well.
