Create Attribute (Dropdown) in products

The question:

Create Dropdown attribute , if dropdown value is “yes” than image(any image) will display in products page and if dropdown value is “no” than image will not display.

The Solutions:

Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.

Method 1

  • Create a new attribute under Store -> Attributes
  • link the newly created attribute to the Attribute Set (Store-Menu)
  • in your phtml, get value of Attribute with $_item->getData('your_attribute_code'). Example below.

    <?php if($_item->getData('my_attribute') == 1):
    //do something
    endif; ?>

Method 2

please follow the my code to getting exact output..

$productId = 1;
$product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->setStoreId(Mage::app()->getStore()->getId())->load($productId);
$selectedvalue  = $product->getAttributeText('paypal');

$atributeCode = 'paypal';
$attribute = Mage::getModel('eav/config')->getAttribute('catalog_product',$atributeCode);
$options = $attribute->getSource()->getAllOptions();

        foreach($options as $key => $value){

                echo "<pre>";
               // print_r($value); //get Product's selected attribute options Values
                echo "</pre>";  
                //echo "<div id='some'><img src='image.jpg'></div>";
               echo "<img src='' border='0' alt='Now accepting PayPal'>";
