I hhave field_something which is a select field with multiple options:

key1|Value 1
key2|Value 2

I'm trying to get the value of this field using the Entity metadata wrapper.


This will return the key, not the value as defined in the node's fields.

Any ideas?

    Actually, the key is the value of the field as stored in the database. If you want the value as displayed you'll have to use the Field API to get the settings for the field. I think you'll find it somewhere in what's returned from field_info_field(). Commented Mar 21, 2015 at 14:32
  • Why don't you use devel module to see what are the available options of the $wrapper variable?

You may use $wrapper->field_something->label().


You can try code below:

$wrapper = entity_metadata_wrapper('node', $node);
$list = $wrapper->field_machine_name->optionsList();

I hope it helps you!
