In Drupal 7 you can use field_info_field(), while in Drupal 6 you can use content_field_instance_read(), which is defined in the CCK module.

You can also use list_allowed_values().

$field = field_info_field('field_name');
$allowed_values = list_allowed_values($field);
  • is not working, i tried this class but it the same problem

  • the only errors that it show for me is :"Warning : Invalid argument supplied for foreach()", and when i use dsm($form); i found only those result $form['field_name']['#type'], $form['field_name']['#attributes'] $form['field_name']['#default_value]

  • <div class="form-item form-type-textfield form-item-field-r-t-tid shs-wrapper-processed"> <input class="element-invisible shs-enabled form-text shs-processed" type="text" id="edit-field-r-t-tid" name="field_r_t_tid" value="All" size="60" maxlength="128"> <select id="edit-field-r-t-tid-select-1" class="shs-select form-select shs-select-level-1" style="display: inline-block;"><option value="0">- Aucun(e) -</option> <option value="526">Kebili (0)</option><option value="523">Mahdia (0)</option> </select></div>
