Output Product or text value from select

  • Hi! I need some guidance on how to output the selected values from a select on front.

    I have two options, on is a text field with a populated html value, and the second one is a post_object for products where I want to display the thumb and the permalink.

    So either output the the hmtl value or the products thumb and link.

    so something like:

    <div class="select populated">
    choice 1 or choice 2
    </div>

    This is how its setup in ACF:

    Return format on select set to both (array). Display output set to Post object.

                    'ui' => 1,
    				),        

    Tried a bunch of different ways but no luck, so need to start over. Any help would be appreciated!

  • 
    $choice = get_field('menu_item_type');
    if ($choice == 'checkbox') {
       // do something
    } elseif ($choice == 'product') {
       // do something else
    }
    
  • Thanks John. For the first one it would work, I can just add my html in the if statement.

    But the second one – it has Post object set to products, so there I need to call the selected product. (link and thumb)

  • 
    $choice = get_field('menu_item_type');
    if ($choice == 'checkbox') {
       // do something
    } elseif ($choice == 'product') {
       $product = get_field('pdp_product_one');
       // get an acf field from the product
       $some_value = get_field('some_field', $product->ID);
       // get something else from the product
       // see documentation for what you are using for products
    }
    
  • Thanks again, this doesnt work unfortunately. And I dont want an if or else statement, I want to output the data from the selected select fields which already has information (either text field or a post object).
