I created an Attribute of type dropdown. I assigned two values of "Yes" & "No". While printing those attributes values, while comparing products i get the values like "133" / "134" . Is it because of systems predefined value or what it is ? How can i get the same value as i assigned for options "Yes" or "No" get printed as attribute value?

Note : I tried attribute type 'yes/no' , this prints '1' and ' ' (this will not be clear to visitors/customers).

The code below prints the numeric value for only dropdown attribute type where as its working nicely for input field attribute type

$valueattr = Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/product')->getAttributeRawValue($_item->getId(), $_attribute->getAttributeCode(), $storeId);
  • please write the code you have tried which prints the numeric value..

getAttributeRawValue prints the actual value stored in the db. And yes/no attributes are kept as 0 and 1.
Try using:

$valueLabel = $_item->setStoreId($storeId)->getAttributeText($_attribute->getAttributeCode());

use getAttributeText('attributecode') method to get the frontend value for any attribute.
