  • If Online_Courses__c is a picklist field, then <apex:inputField value="{!A.Online_Courses__c}" /> should work. – Keith C Dec 14 '14 at 14:11

If you change your Visualforce code from a apex:selectList to an apex:inputField the Visualforce engine will take care of rendering the correct picklist values.


<apex:selectlist value="{!A.Online_Courses__c}" />


<apex:inputField value="{!A.Online_Courses__c}" />

Alternatively, if you still need to use an apex:selectList, you can use Apex Describe to get the values.

In the controller:

public List<SelectOptions> courseOptions { get; set; }
public String selectedCourse { get; set; }

public OnlineAdmission() {
    Schema.DescribeFieldResult dfr = Obj_A__c.Online_Courses__c.getDescribe();
    List<Schema.PicklistEntry> entries = dfr.getPicklistValues();

    List<SelectOption> coursesOptions = new List<SelectOption>();
    for (Schema.PicklistEntry entry : entries) {
        coursesOptions.add( new SelectOption(entry.getValue(), entry.getLabel()) );

In the page:

<apex:selectList value="{!selectedCourse}" multiselect="false" size="1">
    <apex:selectOptions value="{!courseOptions"}/>
