Get User Sub-Field Select Options

  • I am attempting to get a list of all of the options available for a particular select field. That select field is within a repeater field, and is associated with user profiles, rather than posts.

    I have tried using get_field_objects() to get the full list of fields, but, unless I specify a User ID that actually has data associated with my custom fields, the get_field_objects() function returns false.

    So, if I try get_field_objects() all by itself, I get false.

    If I try get_field_objects( 'user_1' ), I also get false, because the user with an ID of 1 hasn’t added any of the ACF field information to their profile.

    I am finding that I have to know ahead of time which user(s) has added extra information to their profile before I can even get the list of fields.

    Then, of course, I have to loop through the sub-fields until I find the one I’m looking for, and return its choices.

    Is there any easier way to just get all field/sub-field objects that are assigned to the User Profile form; or do I have to know a specific user ID in order to get them? Thanks.

  • Are you trying to get the choice of the select field?

    Or all of the choices that have been selected?
