In SugarCRM 7.x PDF Template created using PDF Manager i want to retrieve the key of a dropdown field for checking some conditions. What is the best way to retrieve this key?

Let's consider that I have a dropdown field named 'my_field' which have a custom options list named 'my_options' attached to it.

The options list 'my_options' attached with 'my_field' is defined like this:

$app_list_strings['my_options']=array (   'a' => 'Option Alpha',   'b' => 'Option Bravo',   'c' => 'Option Charlie', );

Lets also consider that in my module 'my_field' has a value of 'b' saved in database and in my pdf template i want to retrieve this value 'b' so in pdf template i use

{$fields.my_field}

and it returns 'Option Bravo'

Is it possible to retrieve its key value i.e. 'b' in some way ?
