Is picklist not supported in lightning data service when using with lightning:input

<lightning:input type="text" label="Description" value="{!v.simpleRecord.Description__c}" />

I need to use Lightning data service but picklist field is not showing? Any inputs?

  • Is there a reason you don't want to use lightning:inputField?

Like others have said, recordEditForm is you best bet. But if you need to get the picklist values separately, you can use the uiAPI to get that without Apex, but you need to provide a Record Type Id - so something like this worked for me to get values for a custom picklist field on Account

//Include Import Reference to Object Info and uiAPI
import { getPicklistValues } from 'lightning/uiObjectInfoApi';
import { getObjectInfo } from 'lightning/uiObjectInfoApi';

//Import object and field references = e.g. custom field for State Values
import ACCOUNT_OBJECT from '@salesforce/schema/Account';
import STATEOFREP_FIELD from '@salesforce/schema/Account.StateOfCoverage__c';

//Get the object info so I can lookup the Record Type Id I want
@wire(getObjectInfo, { objectApiName: ACCOUNT_OBJECT })
    wireObject(result) {
        if (result.data) {
            this.objectInfo = result.data;
            const rtis = this.objectInfo.recordTypeInfos;
            this.accountRTID = Object.keys(rtis).find(rti => rtis[rti].name === 'KW - Member');
          } else if (result.error) {
            this.error = result.error;

//Now look up my Picklist Values
    @wire(getPicklistValues, { recordTypeId: '$accountRTID', fieldApiName: STATEOFREP_FIELD })

Then I have a getter to return those to the page

get stateOptionValues() {
    if (this.stateOptions.data) {
        return this.stateOptions.data.values;

On the page it looks like this:

 <lightning-layout-item padding="around-small" small-device-size="6">
                <lightning-combobox name="State"
                                    label="State of Representation"
