Can a Visualforce Page be built so it displays the actual picklist values and dependencies for fields which incorporate State and Country Picklists? I tried using Field Sets as well as hard-coded field references, and either way it just displays a text input.

MVR Markup

<apex:page standardController="Account">
                <apex:inputField value="{!Account.BillingStreet}" />
                <apex:inputField value="{!Account.BillingCity}" />
                <apex:inputField value="{!Account.BillingState}" />
                <apex:inputField value="{!Account.BillingPostalCode}" />
                <apex:inputField value="{!Account.BillingCountry}" />


BillingAddress inputFields

The edit page displays the picklist as expected:

BillingAddress detail

  • Bold formatting seems to have disappeared...

    Try using the corresponding code field e.g. {!Account.BillingStateCode} - I think that presents the picklist values.

  • @Keith The field labels on the edit page hint as much. Good idea, and it worked. Post as an answer and I will accept.

  • Done. Couldn't find any mention of that in the docs though.

Using the corresponding code field in the Visualforce e.g. {!Account.BillingStateCode} instead of {!Account.BillingState}will present the picklist values.
