I am trying to get the Picklist values of the Type field in the Account type. When I do this in my Visualforce page:

<apex:inputField value="{!acct.Type}"></apex:inputField>

The only possible value is Individual, but when I look at the Account object, I see several other possible values. Does anyone know how I can populate a selectList with all the values? This seems like it should be very simple.

    do you have any record type on Account object or do you see those value on Account detail page ?

    ... as picklist value subsets can be defined per record-type.

  • Yep, its all about record type Mar 31, 2016 at 5:09
  • I'm seeing them if I go into the admin area and look at Account details on any account. And it's only applicable on a specific record type. I just don't know how to get all those possible values to display in the type dropdown box for a new Account.
