LWC RecordtType PicklistValue Selector

Lightning Web Component for Salesforce platform allowing front-end selection of an Object Picklist value, restricted by RecordType.


In Salesforce Setup picklist values can be restricted per RecordType. Allowing distinction in business processes and guiding an end-user through that particulr process.

Unfortunately, those restrictions aren't always satisfied by Salesforce, e.g. in:

  • Dynamic Picklist Choices in Lightning Flows (SF Idea)


This Lightning Web Component retrieves and displays the picklist values which are valid for the provided RecordTypeId, independent of Object and Field.

The LWC is enabled for usage in a Flow Screens and Record Pages, but can be easily extended.

Lastly, the component includes a Validation message when no Picklist value was selected (to make it required). The Custom Label should be provided for this one.


Variable Description
objectName API name of Object
fieldName API name of Picklist Field on corresponding Object
recordTypeId Id of RecordType to restrict picklist values with (e.g. retrieve from current record, or retrieved to create new record )
isRequired Whether input field is required
errorMessage Error message to show in front-end when field required and not provided (e.g. retrieve from CustomLabel via Formula)


Variable Description
FieldValue Value returned


Configuration in Flow, configuring input and output variables.

  • The input in the screenshot is purely for documentation purposes to show the correct format;
  • NEVER put hard-coded (RecordType) Ids, always retrieve dynamically from a record {!sObj_Account.RecordTypeId} or from server {!Get_RetrieveRecordType.Id};
  • Likewise it is recommended to fetch a CustomLabel in Flow and provide that into the component.
