Tags used to Create VISUALFORCE Pages

1). <Apex:Page>: This is a very important tag of a VF. This says that a single VF page and all the components must be wrapped inside this single page. Attributes of <apex: page> tag are:

  • Action:

This invokes when this page is requested by the server, here we must use a expression language to reference an action method in APEX Action= {! do action} --->  Must be defined in APEX class. EX:-  action= {! int} or action= {!redir} ---> re directions the page to new page referred ---> Initializes

  •  Controller:

It’s a string type and the name given here must be implemented in an Apex class, controller means an custom controller, this cannot be used if we use standard controller. <apex: page Controller="class name implemented in APEX">

  • Extension:

This is used to extend the custom controllers we can have any extension for an custom controller, this is used to add extra functionality. <apex: page controller: “string" extension="string">

  • ID:

It’s a string, gives an identification for tag, we can specify any name, but it should not be a duplicate, it’s generally used to refer this page by other components in the page.

  • Record setvar:

it’s a string; this attribute indicates that the page users a set of records oriented by a standard controller only. Used to handle multiple records, this attribute converts a controller to a list controller.

  • Render As:

it’s a string the name of any supported content converter, we can change the display in to a 'PDF' or another type currently it’s only a 'PDF' format. <apex: page render as='PDF'> displays a page in a pdf format

  • Renderd:

it's a Boolean type, related to the displaying of a page by default it’s a 'TRUE', if we keep it false the page will not be displayed.

  • Setup:

it's a Boolean type; it specifies whether the page should implement standard setup if its true.It will not implement by default if its "FALSE"

  • Show header:

it's a Boolean type, displays or hides the salesforce header if true or false respectively.

  • Sidebar:

it's a Boolean type, displays or hides the sidebar of standard salesforce site.

  • standard controller:

it's the sales force object that's used to control the behaviour of this page, this attribute cannot be specified if custom controller is used. <apex: page standard controller="Account">

  • Standard style sheets:

it's a Boolean type; it decides whether the standard salesforce style sheets are added to the generated page header if the showheader attribute is set false, if it’s set true the standard style sheets are by default, added to the generated page header. The other important tags are tab style title, help URL & help title. 2).Apex.form: A section of a VF page that allows users to enter o/p and then submit it with an <apex: command Button> or <apex :command link> The body of the form determines the data that is displayed and the way it is processed. Attributes of this tag are:

  • Accept:it's a string type, the text to display as a tooltip when the user's mouse pointer hovers over this component.
  • Accept charset: Its a string type, it’s a comma separated list of characters encoding that a server processing this form can handle.
  • Dir: it’s a string type, it specifies the directions such as RTL & LTR (Right to left or left to right), that should display the components in the form of a VF page(position).

Onclick, anddblclick, onkeydown, on keypress, onkeyup, onmousedown, onmouseout, onmousemove, onmouseup, onreset, onsubmit These are the general attributes must be used within the form tag, all related when we use JAVASCRIPT in our design, when this JAVASCRIPT should be invoked either on one click, double click, onkeydown, press, up, down, move.............. On-reset and on submit are important, here the JavaScript is invoked when an event such as reset/submit occurs, if the user clicks on reset/submit buttons. 3).<apex:pageblock>: it's an area of a page that uses styles similar to the appearance of a salesforce detail page, without any default content. In detail page we can see only the components in 2 column's here we can make it to any number of columns using page Block section. And we can create instances rather than full names of objects i.e. <apex:pageblock value="{!account}" var="AC"> </apex:pageBlock> Attributes are:

  • Dir:Direction of display 'RTL/LTR'
  • helptitle: it's a string type, the text in title will be displayed when a user hovers the mouse over the help link for the pageblock. We must use this in relation with helpURL helpURL

it's a string type, the URL of a webpage that provides help for the page block. Here also we can perform the same actions which can be performed using the form tag, the Java script enabled tag attributes are like the following. Onclick, onclick, onkeydown, onkeypress, onkeyup........... 4).<apex.facetname>: This is an tag which is used to mention the column name of the column and this will overrides the attributer properties of the <apex:pageblock> section like JavaScript enabled attributes, title, help text, help URL,....... And the column component can be added in both ways the header and footer.

  • footer: The components that appear at the bottom of the page block.
  • Header: The components that appear as a header of the page block.

5).apex:PageBlock section This tag can be used to create sections within a page block to categorize different fields into different sections. It’s similar to adding a section by using a edit page layout assignment. These sections spans of two cells. One for the field label, and another for its value. Each component found in the body of an <apex: pageblock section> is placed into the next cell in a row until the no. of columns is reached. To add fields, and objects to this <apex: pageblock section> we use <apex:inputfield> or <apex:outputfield> component each of these component automatically displays with the field's associated label. Attributes

  • Clooapsible: it's a Boolean type, it specifies whether the page block section can be expanded and collapsed by a user, by default its "TRUE"
  • Columns: it's an integer type, it specifies the no. of columns that can be included in a single row of a pageblock section, a single column can span two cells-one for field label, and another for its value.
  • Dir: Direction RTL or LTR

6). apex:pageblocksection item A single piece of data in an <apex: pageblocksection> that takes keep up one column in one row. An <apex:pageBlocksection Item> component can include up to two child components, If no content is specified, the content spans both cells of the column. If two child components are specified , the content of the first is rendered in left, "label" cells of the column, while the content of the second is rendered in the right , "data' cell of the column. EX:-  if we include an <apex:outputfield> or an <apex:inputfield>component in an <apex:pageblockitem>, these components do not display with their label or custom help text as they do when they are children of an <apex:pageblockitem> And these components cannot be rendered, rerender the child components instead. Attributes : (DIr, helptext,ID)

  • Labelstyle: Its a string type, these style used to display the content of the left “label" cell of the page block section column and uses all JavaScript enabled tags (discussed above)

7). <Apex:pageblock buttons>: A set of buttons that are styled like standard salesforce buttons the component must be a child component of an <apex: pageblock> This tag creates buttons and places them in the page block title area and footer area. Here we can specify the location of the button's in a section it can be either "Top/Bottom" Attributtes: Dir, Location: it's the area of the page block where the buttons should be rendered.Possible values are "top/bottom" or "both". This can be overridden when we use facet (header/footer) By default it's set to both. 8).apex:command button: A button that is rendered as an HTML o/p element with the type attribute set to "submit" , "rest" or "image" depending on the <apex: command button> tags specified values The button executes an action the child of an <apex: form> component EX:<apex:commandbutton action="{!save}" value="save" id="the button"/> Attributes:

Tags used to invoke Java script using AJAX request (A synchronous Java script and XML). And the tags are

1).<apex:action function>

A component that provides support for invoking controller action method directly from JavaScript code using an AJAX request. An <apex: action function> it must be a child of <apex: from>. difference: <apex: action support>, supports invoking controllers action method from other VF components. (referenced by other components) <apex: action function> defines New JavaScript function which can then be called from within a block of JavaScript code. (within JavaScript )>. Attributes are

  • Action: This is Apex Pages. Action, type, the action method invoked when the action Function is called by a JavaScript event elsewhere in the page markup. We use merge field syntax to reference the method. If an action is not specified, the page simply refreshes.
  • Name: It's a string type, the name of the JavaScript function, that when invoked yes, elsewhere in the page Markup, causes the method specified by the action attribute to execute. When the action method components specified by the rerender attributes will be refreshed.

(don't use this with enhanced listing) <apex :action poller> is ever re-rendered as the request of another action, it resets itself. It should be within the <apex: action region>. Attributes are

  • Action: ApexPage. Action, invoked by the periodic AJAX update request from the component, can use merge field syntax to reference a method.
  • Action: "{!increment counter}" reference the incrementcounter () method in the controller. If action is not mentioned the page simply refreshes.
  • Interval: Time interval between AJAX update request, in seconds here the updation can be done for multiple fields at a time. This can be written in action logic.

3).<Apex:action region>

This tag helps us to create a set of components which can be displayed whenever some Ajax up date is performed on a VF page. An area of a VF page that demonstrates which components should be processed by the server. Only the components inside <apex: action region> are processed by the server during an AJAX request. But it doesn't define the area (s) of the pages (s),( rendered) when the request completes . To controls the behavior, use the rerender attribute on an <apex: action support> <Apex: action Poller > <Apex: Command Button> <apex: Command Link> <apex: tab <apex: tab Pannel>. Attributes are ID: It's a string type, it indentifies that allows the component to be referenced by other component in the page.

  • focus:The id of the component that is in focus after the AJAX request completes.
  • status:It's a string type, the ID of an associated component. That displays the status if AJAX update request.

Visual force scenarios: Visual force Page Scenario 1: Create the Visualforce page called “Opportunity View”with the following code and override with the “New” button on Opportunity Object.Result would be like once we click on the Opportunity tab and click on “New” button

<apex:pagestandardController="Opportunity" sidebar="false" showHeader="true">
 <apex:pageBlock title="Opportunity Detail">
 <apex:commandButton value="Save The Opportunity" action="{!Save}"/>
 <apex:pageBlockSection title="Opportunity Information 1" columns="2"

 <apex:relatedList subject="{!account}" list="OpenActivities" />
 <apex:tab label="Notes and Attachments" name="NotesAndAttachments"
 <apex:relatedList subject="{!account}" list="NotesAndAttachments" />

Create the button called “Tabbed Account” on the Account object. While creating button, select “OnClick Java Script” as the Content Source and write the following code parent.window.location.replace ("/apex/RelatedListAsTabsDisplay?id={!Account.Id}"); Note: RelatedListAsTabsDisplay --> Visualforce Page Nam> Salesforce Training-Tags used to Create VISUALFORCE Pages Once we click on “Tabbed Button”, we will get the following screen.

  • Click on Details tab -->to open Detail page
  • Click on Contacts tab -->tto open the Contacts related list and

same for Opportunities, Open Activities and Notes and Attachments Salesforce Training-Tags used to Create VISUALFORCE Pages   Explanation: In the 1st step starts with pagetag, here it includes standardController=”ACCOUNT”, and the header will be enabled, and tab style will be of account.

  • <Style> is used to include STYLE SHEETS, here we used them to disply the ACTIVE AND INACTIVE tabs. ACTIVE is: BLUE COLRED And INACTIVE: Grey in color.
  • We are taking a tab panel which consists of all the tabs of account
  • SwitchType: The implementation method for switching between tabs specifies the general operation is between CLIENT and Server.
  • SELECTED TAB:The name of the default selected tab when the page loads. <apex:tab> defines the tab name, label and id.
  • <apex;detail/> this is a self sustained tag gives the detail page of each account tab selected and the attribute RELATED list can be a Boolean one.
  • <apex:related list> in this we used SUBJECT and LIST.

The attribute Subject specifies the parent record from which the data or the related list has to be mentioned in your case it’s ACCOUNT. LIST: name of the child that should be appeared on the tab CHILDS of account.. Note: Redirecting the visualforcepage to the listviewpage using single tag.

<apex:page action="{!URLFOR($Action.Account.List,$ObjectType.Account)}"/>

Visualforce Scenario 3: The followingvisualforce page displays the Contacts for particular account in a separate window as the table (format is standard salesforce page) Page Name=”ContactsForAccount”

 <apex:pageBlock title="Hello {!$User.FirstName} {!$User.LastName}!">
 We are viewing the Contacts for this <b>{!}</b> Account.
 <apex:pageBlock title="Contacts">
 <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!account.Contacts}" var="con">
 <apex:column value="{!con.Name}"/>
 <apex:column value="{!con.Lastname}"/>
 <apex:column value="{!con.Phone}"/>
 <apex:column value="{!con.Title}"/>

Create the button called “ContactsForAccount” on Account Object and override above visualforce page with this button. Salesforce Training-Tags used to Create VISUALFORCE Pages Salesforce Training-Tags used to Create VISUALFORCE Pages Salesforce Training-Tags used to Create VISUALFORCE Pages   Explination:

  • Starting tag for a visualforcepage is <apex:page> and this follows standard object ACCOUNT.
  • Forming a new page block which gives the user name and Account holder name.
  • Forming a new page block with title as CONTACTS.
  • And then retrieving the contact fields using account and the field label are shown as column headers.

Visualforce Scenario 4: Create the Visualforce page with the following code. This is the example for custom controller.

Page Name=”PageReference”
 <apex:page controller="MyCustomController" tabStyle="Account">
 <apex:pageBlock title="Account Detail">
 <apex:pageblockSection title="Account Information" >
 <apex:inputField value="{!account.Name}"/>

 <apex:inputField value="{!account.Rating}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!account.Website}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!account.Active__c}"/>
 <apex:pageblockSection title="Account Detail" >
 <apex:inputField value="{!account.BillingCity}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!account.BillingCountry}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!account.Description}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!account.Fax}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!account.ShippingCity}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!account.ShippingCountry}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!account.AnnualRevenue}"/>

My Custom Controller Class:

public class MyCustomController{
 Public Account acc;
 public MyCustomController(){
acc = [select id,Name,Phone,Industry,Website,Active__c,Rating,BillingCity,Description,Fax,
 ShippingCity,AnnualRevenue,BillingCountry,ShippingCountry from Account where
 public Account getAccount() {
 return acc;
 public PageReference saveMethod() {
 update acc;
 PageReference pageRef = new ApexPages.StandardController(acc).view();
 return pageRef;

Create the “Detail Page Link” with the name “PageReference” on Account Object. While creating select “Execute JavaScript” as the behavior and “onClick JavaScript” as the Content Source parent.window.location.replace("/apex/PageReference?id={!}"); Salesforce Training-Tags used to Create VISUALFORCE Pages Add the PageReference link to the Account Layout Salesforce Training-Tags used to Create VISUALFORCE Pages Salesforce Training-Tags used to Create VISUALFORCE Pages Update the field values then click on “Save the Page” button in the above window,we will get the Standard Account detail page Visualforce Senarion 5:

Create the Visualforce page with the following code. This is the example for custom controller.
 Page Name=”WithoutPageReference”
 <apex:page controller="MySecondController" tabStyle="Opportunity">
 <apex:pageBlock title="Opportunity Detail">
 <apex:commandButton value="Save The Opportunity" action="{!saveMethod}"/>
 <apex:pageBlockSection title="Opportunity Information" columns="2"
 <apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity .Name}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity .DeliveryInstallationStatus__c}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity .TrackingNumber__c}"/>
 <apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity .CloseDate}"/>

My second Controller class:

public class MySecondController {
 Public Opportunity opp;
 public MySecondController(){
