I am trying to figure out how to render a Visualforce component containing inputfields conditionally, depending on a stage field outside of the visualforce page. I would like to render a different visualforce component depending on the stage. Here's what I have so far. When I run as-is, I can't get anything to display within my visualforce page.

VF Page:

<apex:form >
   <c:StageFields record="{!opportunity}"  rendered="{!opportunity.StageName == 'Received'}" /> 



    <apex:attribute name="record" type="Opportunity" description="Opportunity"/>
    <apex:inputField value="{!record.Rep_Name__c}"/>


You'll want to pass the correct opportunity to the component so that your page's save method will work correctly. Usually, I pass the standard controller and/or record directly to the component. This requires some cooperation at the page level, like this:

public class StandardControllerExtension {
    public SObject record { get; set; }
    public ApexPages.StandardController standardController { get; set; }

    public StandardControllerExtension(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {
        record = controller.getRecord();
        standardController = controller;

Which you can then add to your page:

<apex:page standardController="Opportunity" extensions="StandardControllerExtension">
    <apex:form >
         <c:StageFields record="{!record}" rendered="{!opportunity.StageName = 'Received'}" />

And to your component:

    <apex:attribute name="record" type="Opportunity" description="Opportunity"/>
    <apex:inputField value="{!record.Name}"/>

Edit: The attribute wasn't formatted as a proper merge field, so it would cause the component to never render. I updated the code in this answer to correct that problem.

  • Thanks! I'm still unable to render the fields. My new code is update above. Using your public class as well. – Erik Eitel Apr 11 '16 at 16:38
  • @ErikEitel I'm working on a mock-up. Give me a few minutes. – sfdcfox Apr 11 '16 at 16:56
  • @ErikEitel Your rendered attribute is incorrect. Merge fields always start with {!, but you started it with {(!, so it doesn't get evaluated, and therefore doesn't equal true, which therefore causes the element to not render. Change the attribute to {!Opportunity.StageName='Received'}. – sfdcfox Apr 11 '16 at 17:00
  • Awesome. Worked like a charm! Thanks a ton! Updated code above to reflect changes. – Erik Eitel Apr 11 '16 at 17:03
  • Related... Any idea why this code wouldn't process an inline edit? Switched inputfields to all output fields and added apex:inlineeditsupport, but still no go. I click save and it stores the value, but then is gone on page refresh. – Erik Eitel Apr 11 '16 at 20:18

First you need to make your component parameter ready by passing Opportunity id so that you can query that and display opportunity details inside component or with your current implementation pass all required value from your visualforce page which you are displaying using your component in following way

<c:Stagefields opportunity="oppname"/>
  • Thanks. I just updated the code above to include your edit. Still getting the same result. Did I do that right/what am I missing? – Erik Eitel Apr 11 '16 at 16:26
  • Pass value in rep_name__c field as opportunity.rep_name__c – Himanshu Apr 11 '16 at 16:30
  • I am on mobile so can't post exact solution. You can go for sfdcfox solution i am suggesting the same. – Himanshu Apr 11 '16 at 16:34
