Dynamic Picklist values based on Record Type in VF

Is it possible to have picklists on a custom VF page respect the recordtype (with regards to their available choices) without elaborate if/else coding? Stock pages do this automatically with Page layoputs but once you cross over to a custom page it seems you lose this completely.

Not supported today.  Many people wish it was, including me!
There is an idea on the idea exchange you can and should vote for!

Here's the thread that explains the bug: Re: Picklist InputField does not respect RecordType?

 

Sam Arjmandi has a custom component that may be a workaround: A Picklist Component For Your Visualforce Pages

Technically it's not a bug, it's just not currently supported.

Point taken. I stand (actually sitting at my desk) corrected.

But I do see how it could bug you that it's not supported. Lame, I know, but I couldn't resist. :smileyvery-happy:

There is no out of the box way to do this - you will have to write some javascript to do this.
