Assign picklist values from a global picklist to UI-only picklist

edited June 2019 in Questions
Is there a way to assign picklist entries to a UI-only picklist field in a UI only model from a global picklist? In my case I just have a simple UI-only picklist field that needs to have all the 50 states as its picklist values. Instead of typing in all the 50 states, I was wondering if I could connect it to an already existing global picklist field. I see that it could be populated by "Rows in a model" or "Javascript snippet" but how do I put that to use here?

    Hi Ashwat,

    Salesforce does not give direct access to global picklist value sets. You can certainly use picklist fileds that use a global picklist value set, but I don't think that's what you're after.

    Please give this a try.  I pulled in a model (Contact) with a field (Salutation) that has a pick list that I want to use.  I am creating a Task and I add a UI Only field that is of type Pick List.  I add a custom field render and pull the pick list entries from the Salutation field and use them with the UI Only field.



    <skuidpage unsavedchangeswarning="yes" personalizationmode="server" useviewportmeta="true" showsidebar="true" showheader="true" tabtooverride="Task">

                <jsitem location="inlinesnippet" name="getPicklist" cachelocation="false">var params = arguments[0],

    $ = skuid.$;



    // Get the Running User's Profile Name from a 'RunningUser' model:

    if (params.mode == 'edit') {
    //    pick.push(con.fields[0].picklistEntries);

    // Run the standard picklist renderer for the given mode
