I have a Custom Object called Opportunity_carset.the related list of Opportunity Carset Object is Service.

The Opportunity Carse Object has two fields.

  1. Model
  2. Version

    • The Service object has some Picklist Field called CodeLabel

    • Model and Version values from "Opportunity Carset" are sent as parameter to webservice class to retrieve the "service" Object Custom Picklist values.

My scenario:

Whenever am creating the "Service" record by clicking "New Service" from realted list of "Opportunity carset" Object,the Custom Picklist values should be displayed in Service Object.


I have created a apex class which take the Model and Version values and will give the custom Picklist values.

This class will return the Picklist Options.Using MetaDataApi I can update the picklist field values in"Service" object.But this all to be happen while creating a record from Relatedlist.Give me some Idea!!!

  • Uma.. what you can do.. You can create a batch that will run before creating any records.. May be you can run this batch every sunday then this will create picklist value in every sunday.. Looks like you want this to be run only once ? correct if yes then before giving this app live just run this callout once..

  • @Ratan Everytime the user creates the record from related list the Picklist Values should be displayed for User.Evert time the picklist value may change depending upon the selection of Model and version value

  • Uma.. what is this Model and version.. It is fields on Parent object.. ? If yes then how many Model and version User can select.
    – Ratan Paul

  • Yes.The user select only one model and version in Opportuninty car set object.Depending upon the selection of model and version the PicklistValues may differ.model and version values sent as parameter to webservice and will give the list of PicklistValues

  • Uma.. Total how many picklist value any we have.. IF few example total 20 -30 .. We can create recordType and assign the picklist values ?

So basically you have to use VF page so when you try to create service record picklist option should populated with webservice retured values.

  1. You need to override new button of service related list so onclick of that button user should redirect to VF page.
  2. Pass your Opportunity_carset id in url and get that id in VF page controller.
  3. Based on Opportunity_carset id query Model and Version fields.
  4. Now make callout with Model and Version fields and get all the picklist options.
  5. Pass all options to page picklist.
  6. Now user can save this record..

This way we can make the picklist value based on parent Model and Version fields and callout.
