getting the value of a MultiSelectCFType custom field


i use:

$customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Activity Type").getValue($issue)

but the shown value is in brackets: [value] how did i get the value without the brackets ?

Thanks Fredy

Hey Fred,

You need to access the option and display the options value.

Hi Bhushan, I'm sure, that you are right, but I don't know how ,-(

haha sorry try this. Havent tested it but should give you an idea.

CustomField field = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("Activity Type");
if(field.getCustomFieldType() instanceof MultiSelectCFType){
      Option option = (Option)field.getValue(issue);
      String value = (String)option.getValue();

ok, an in the velocity template :

$customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Activity Type").getValue($issue).getValue()

?? I'll try this as sonn I've time.
