    I want to use a picklist in a formula field also I have created a custom object. I want to display this field on my custom object. how to achieve that without using a Formula field since I cannot use a picklist in the way I want. I do not want to override the pages with visualforce I know this is one way to just put an output field of the picklist on the page.

    I am trying to do is: contact__r.Active__c.
