How can I pass the var attribute from my <apex:repeat> tag to a controller variable? Here var contains API name of object field. From that I need to get label for that particular field to display it in table column. I am using facet to display column label.

<apex:repeat value="{!SelectedFields}" var="FieldLable"  id="xyz">  
    <apex:column id="clm" >                   
        <apex:outputfield value="{!ab.con[FieldLable]}" />
        <apex:facet name="header">{!Lable}</apex:facet>

You don't need to pass it to Apex. Just use the $ObjectType global variable. Here I will rename your variables to be less confusing and conform to your description. Please also note it's label, not lable.

<apex:repeat value="{!selectedFields}" var="fieldName">
    <apex:facet name="header">
  • thanks adrain . It helped , this is what i used <apex:facet name="header">{!$ObjectType[selectedObject].fields[FieldLable].Label}</apex:facet>
