I have a situation where I was querying standard pricebook with SeeAlldata=true in test class.

Pricebook2 pb2 = [select Id, Name, IsActive from PriceBook2 where IsStandard=True LIMIT 1];

Later I changed SeeAlldata=false and getting the id like this:

Id pricebookId = Test.getStandardPricebookId();

Now I'm executing a method from test class in which I'm querying standard pridebook. I cannot use the Test.getStandardPricebookId(); in apex class.

How can I fix this issue without setting SeeAlldata=true.

    in that method put a condition like if(Test.isrunningtest()) { Id pricebookId = Test.getStandardPricebookId();//Return getStandardPricebookId } else { Pricebook2 pb2 = [select Id, Name, IsActive from PriceBook2 where IsStandard=True LIMIT 1]; //return query id }

    Test.isrunningtest() is not the perfect solution as it will skip the query part. Check Ben's answer in this post developer.salesforce.com/forums/?id=906F0000000BIGWIA4

From my Util.cls library ...use a consistent entry point for fetching the StandardPricebookId across testmethods and PROD code

private static Pricebook2 stdPriceBook;  // Singleton, remember when first referenced

//  ------------------------------------------------------
//  getStdPricebookId : as of V31, testmethods can locate std pricebook wo seeAlldata=true
//  ------------------------------------------------------
public static ID getStdPricebookId() {
    if (Test.isRunningTest())   return Test.getStandardPricebookId();
    return getStdPricebook().id;    

//  -------------------------------------------------------
//  getStdPriceBook: Singleton
//  -------------------------------------------------------
public static Pricebook2    getStdPriceBook () {
    if (stdPriceBook == null) 
        stdPriceBook    = [select id, name from Pricebook2 where isStandard = true limit 1];
    return stdPriceBook;
