I am trying to create a VF Page with more than 10 dependent Picklist fields. I am getting the below error :

Visualforce pages may not display more than 10 dependent picklists together with their controlling fields. This includes any picklists in components or inline pages.

After going through few blogs, i see that salesforce limits only 10 dependent picklist fields on VF Page. Is there any work around to display more than 10 dependent picklist. Please need help here.

  • Did you get solution for the same?

Limits for Custom Picklists

Custom single-select picklists can have:

  • Up to 1,000 values
  • Up to 255 characters per value
  • Note: These limits apply to custom restricted and unrestricted picklists.

Custom multi-select picklists can have:

  • Up to 500 values
  • Up to 255 characters per value

Users can select up to 100 values at a time on a record. You can have up to 500 global picklists (or picklist value sets) in an org. Each global value set can contain up to 500 values. These limits don’t apply to custom picklists that use global picklist value sets.

    Thanks for your reply. But my question is regarding the number of fields and not the number of values or characters in the picklist field.

  • Wlcm, You can create up to 500 global picklists. There is no limit mentioned in salesforce for dependent pick-list.
