getting record type based picklist values

Hi all,

I have four record types on order object. I have overridden them with the visualforce pages,but i am not able to see the picklist values based on the selected record types. Can you please guide me?
--This is my controller--
public class OrderRedirectExtensionController{
public String strRecordTypeId{get;set;}
public Order orderObj{get;set;}
public RecordType recordType{get;set;}
List<RecordType> lstred{get;set;}
public OrderRedirectExtensionController(ApexPages.StandardController controller ){
strRecordTypeId= apexpages.currentpage().getparameters().get('RecordType');

Order orderObj = new Order();
orderObj.RecordTypeId = strRecordTypeId;

lstred=[select id,Name from RecordType where id=:strRecordTypeId];

public PageReference saveOrder(){
 insert orderObj ;
 PageReference pageRef = new PageReference('/'+orderObj.id);
 return pageRef ;


--This is my page---
<apex:page standardController="Order" showHeader="true">
<apex:form >
<apex:messages />
 .activeTab {background-color: #236FBD; color:white;
 .inactiveTab { background-color: lightgrey; color:black;

Hi Amita,
Where is the controller used in your VF Page?
First You need to use extension in <apex:page> tag.
<apex:page standardController="Order" extensions="OrderRedirectExtensionController" showHeader="true" >

Best regards,

Hi Sourav,
i have done that but while loading the page it shows invalid record type id error

Use with sharing keyword.
public with sharing class OrderRedirectExtensionController{

Validation Errors While Saving Record(s)
There were custom validation error(s) encountered while saving the affected record(s). The first validation error encountered was "Record Type ID: id value of incorrect type: ". 

Click here to return to the previous page.

This is the error thrown

Check the Validation rules in Order
Hi Amita ,
Can you please check the debug log and what value you are getting in the log statement you put in the constructor .
Amita TatarAmita Tatar
Okay i will check that. 
I also want to add a pop up message in this code on selection of record from look up

I want you to check the constructor. You have already declared the property on Order and again instantiated it in the constructor. 
Instead of
Order orderObj = new Order();

 in the constructor, change it to
orderObj = new Order();

 This is the reason for the invalid record type id 
@Amita Tatar
check this snippet try to modify according your requirement.
contactObject = null;
contactObject = (Contact)Contact.sObjectType.newSObject(RecordTypeId,true);
//you will get the Default values, only if you have set the default values, for each picklist field under each recordType.
