Selected picklist item label


I would like to get label of stored picklist value. Is there any straight forward way of doing that or I have to loop through all picklist values?

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

You may Use Custom settings to store the Labels if you think looping may bring issues.Have a custom Setting with api name and label and you may use custom setting methods to retrieve only for those you want.

Map mapCodes = ISO_Country__c.getAll();
// display the ISO code for Afghanistan
System.debug(‘ISO Code: ‘+mapCodes.get(‘AFGHANISTAN’).ISO_Code__c);

Possible Suggestion/Solution #2

For picklist values you can use the toLabel() function in soql to retreive the label, e.g.

select select id,name, toLabel(Industry) from account

Otherwise you can call describeSobject and get the label from the returned picklistValue structure.
