Get Picklist Values on a Lightning Component

In this example we will fetch Picklist field “Industry” values from “Account” object and set in ui:inputSelect on lightning Component.

Apex Class:

public class AccountAuraController {
    @AuraEnabled
    public static List<String> getIndustry(){
        List<String> options = new List<String>();
        Schema.DescribeFieldResult fieldResult = Account.Industry.getDescribe();
        List<Schema.PicklistEntry> pList = fieldResult.getPicklistValues();
        for (Schema.PicklistEntry p: pList) {
            options.add(p.getLabel());
        }
        return options;
    }
}

Component:

<!--TestComponent-->
<aura:component controller="AccountAuraController" access="global" implements="force:appHostable">
    <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}"/>    
    <div class="slds-form-element">
        <label class="slds-form-element__label" for="select-01">Select Industry</label>
        <div class="slds-select_container">
            <ui:inputSelect label="Industry" class="dynamic" aura:id="InputAccountIndustry" change="{!c.onPicklistChange}"/> 
        </div>
    </div>
</aura:component>

Component Controller:

({
    doInit: function(component, event, helper) {
        var action = component.get("c.getIndustry");
        var inputIndustry = component.find("InputAccountIndustry");
        var opts=[];
        action.setCallback(this, function(a) {
            opts.push({
                class: "optionClass",
                label: "--- None ---",
                value: ""
            });
            for(var i=0;i< a.getReturnValue().length;i++){
                opts.push({"class": "optionClass", label: a.getReturnValue()[i], value: a.getReturnValue()[i]});
            }
            inputIndustry.set("v.options", opts);
            
        });
        $A.enqueueAction(action); 
    },
    onPicklistChange: function(component, event, helper) {
        //get the value of select option
        var selectedIndustry = component.find("InputAccountIndustry");
        alert(selectedIndustry.get("v.value"));
    },
})

Lightning App:

<!--TestApp-->
<aura:application extends="ltng:outApp" access="global">
    <c:TestComponent />
</aura:application>

Output:

Call Multiple Apex Methods in Lightning Controller

Apex Controller:

public with sharing class AccountController {

    @AuraEnabled
    public static Account getAccount(Id accountId) {
        Account acc = new Account();
        acc = [SELECT Id, Name, Description FROM Account WHERE Id=:accountId];
        return acc;
    }
    
    @AuraEnabled
    public static List<Attachment> getAttachments(Id parentId) {                            
        List<Attachment> listAttachment = new List<Attachment>();
        listAttachment = [SELECT Id, Name FROM Attachment WHERE ParentId = :parentId];
        return listAttachment;
    }
}

Lightning Component:

<aura:component controller="AccountController" implements="force:appHostable,flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes,force:hasRecordId" access="global">
    <aura:attribute name="recordId" type="Id" />
    <aura:attribute name="acc" type="Account"/>
    <aura:attribute name="attachments" type="Attachment[]"/>
    <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}" />
    
    <div>
        <div>{!v.acc.Name}</div>
        <div>{!v.acc.Description}</div>
        
        <ul>
            <aura:iteration items="{!v.attachments}" var="a">
                <li>
                    <a target="_blank" href="{! '/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=' + a.Id }">{!a.Name}</a>
                </li>
            </aura:iteration>
        </ul>
    </div>

Lightning Controller:

({
    doInit : function (component) {
    var action = component.get('c.getAccount');
    action.setParams({
        "accountId": component.get("v.recordId")
    });
        
	action.setCallback(this, function(response) {
        var state = response.getState();
        if (state == "SUCCESS") {
            var account = response.getReturnValue();
            component.set("v.acc", account);
        }
    });
        
    var action2 = component.get('c.getAttachments');
    action2.setParams({
        "parentId": component.get("v.recordId")
    });
        
	action2.setCallback(this, function(response) {
        var state = response.getState();
        if (state == "SUCCESS") {
            var attachments = response.getReturnValue();
            component.set("v.attachments", attachments);
        }
    });
    $A.enqueueAction(action);
    $A.enqueueAction(action2);
}
})
