I need to display object label instead of API name in the combobox. How to access label of object dynamically? Below is the scrrenshot and code!

enter image description here


            .then(result => {
                var i;
                for (i = 0; i < result.length; i++) {
                    var item = {
                        label: result[i],
                        value: result[i]
                    console.log('this.customObjectOptions : ' + JSON.stringify(this.customObjectOptions));
            .catch(error => {
                this.error = error;
                console.log('error ===>: ' + error.body.message);


 <template if:true={showCustomComboBox}>
                    <lightning-combobox name="CustomObject" label="Select Custom Object:" aria-setsize="5"
                        options={customObjectOptions} onchange={handleChange}>

You can use the getObjectInfos function of lightning/uiObjectInfoApi module. https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/component-library/documentation/en/lwc/lwc.reference_wire_adapters_object_infos

This will return an array of results where you can get the Label of the objects.

I quickly modified a bit the example of the page to match your requirement but you will need to modify it a bit more still.

To fire the wire you would have to modifty the binded variable with the ApiNames of the objects you want.

import { LightningElement, wire } from 'lwc';
import { getObjectInfos } from 'lightning/uiObjectInfoApi';
import ACCOUNT_OBJECT from '@salesforce/schema/Account';
import OPPORTUNITY_OBJECT from '@salesforce/schema/Opportunity';

export default class WireGetObjectInfo extends LightningElement {

@wire(getObjectInfos, { objectApiNames: '$objectApiNames' })
wireHandler({ data, error }) {
   if (data) {
     for (i = 0; i < data.results.length; i++) {
                var item = {
                    label: data.results[i].label,
                    value: data.results[i].apiName

  • What if I don't want to use @wire method? – Indresh Bhargav Feb 4 at 13:45
  • You can return from the apex a List<Map<String,String> or List<WrapperClass> returning the values builded in apex, for example: [ { 'apiName', 'Account', 'Label', 'Account', }, { 'apiName', 'Custom_Object__c', 'Label', 'Custom Object', } ] This should not being difficult to build as you can use schema class, then in your JS just change the iteration to use: label: result[i].Label, value: result[i].apiName – ivan Feb 5 at 11:37
