Generic Class to get Dependency of Dependent Pick-list In Apex

                    if((val & 8) == 8){controllingInfo.get(controllingValues[baseCount + 0].getValue()).add(currDependentValue.getLabel().toLowerCase());}/
                if((val & 4) == 4){controllingInfo.get(controllingValues[baseCount + 1].getValue()).add(currDependentValue.getLabel().toLowerCase());}
                if((val & 2) == 2){controllingInfo.get(controllingValues[baseCount + 2].getValue()).add(currDependentValue.getLabel().toLowerCase());}
                if((val & 1) == 1){controllingInfo.get(controllingValues[baseCount + 3].getValue()).add(currDependentValue.getLabel().toLowerCase());}
                baseCount += 4;
        return controllingInfo;
    public class MyPickListInfo{
        public String validFor;


How to Use:
Syntax :
Map<String, Set<String>> STATES_BY_COUNTRYCODE= DependencyForPicklistApex.getFieldDependencies('ObjectName', 'ControllingFieldAPIName','DependentFieldAPIName');

Example : 
static final Map<String, Set<String>> STATES_BY_COUNTRYCODE= DependencyForPicklistApex.getFieldDependencies('Account', 'BillingCountryCode','BillingStateCode');

Note : In Account Object BillingCountry is the Controlling Field for BillingState.

With the little modification this code can work for BillingCountry instead of  BillingCountryCode.

Custom Table In LWC

I'm assuming you've Basic understanding of Lightning Web Component, I'll be explaining you the syntax that will be generic.

LWC js-meta.xml Configuration File Tags

Each Lightning web component folder must include a configuration file named <componentName>.js-meta.xml. The configuration file defines the metadata values for the component, including the design configuration for the Lightning App Builder and Community Builder. Some Standard Key metadata values: apiVersion : A double value that binds the component to a Salesforce API version. isExposed : If isExposed is false, the component is not exposed to Lightning App Builder or Community Builder. To allow the component to be used in Lightning App Builder or Community Builder, set isExposed to true and define at least one <target>, which is a type of Lightning page. Some Standard Optional metadata values: description : A short description of the component, usually a single sentence. masterLabel : The title of the component. Appears in list views, like the list of Lightning Components in Setup, and in the Lightning App Builder and in Community Builder. targets : Specifies wher
