When loading a collection how can I get the attribute value text (and not just the option number) when its a dropdown attribute.
$collection = Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/product'); $collection->addAttributeToSelect('color'); // color is a dropdown attribute
When using this code the option id's are displaying for
color such as: 123, 117 etc. and not the text values (like: red, green etc.)
Usually we iterate through each product and get the text for the attribute but since this is being used in the Catalog->Manage products page I'm looking for an alternate solution.
