I have created a custom visual force page to override the standard page for edit a custom object "Influencer__c".

This is my page:

apex:page Standardcontroller="Influencer__c" id="Page" tabstyle="Contact">

script type="text/javascript"> 

 <apex:page Standardcontroller="Influencer__c" id="Page"  tabstyle="Contact">

  <script type="text/javascript"> 
  function openLookup(baseURL, width, modified, searchParam){
    var originalbaseURL = baseURL;
    var originalwidth = width;
    var originalmodified = modified;
    var originalsearchParam = searchParam;

    var lookupType = baseURL.substr(baseURL.length-3, 3);
    if (modified == '1') baseURL = baseURL + searchParam;

    var isCustomLookup = false;

    // Following "001" is the lookup type for Account object so change this as per your standard or custom object
    if(lookupType == "003"){

      var urlArr = baseURL.split("&");
      var txtId = '';
      if(urlArr.length > 2) {
        urlArr = urlArr[1].split('=');
        txtId = urlArr[1];

      // Following is the url of Custom Lookup page. 
      baseURL = "/apex/CustomInfluencerLookup?accplanid={!Influencer__c.Account_Plan__c}&txt=" + txtId;

      // Following is the id of apex:form control "myForm". 
      baseURL = baseURL + "&frm=" + escapeUTF("{!$Component.myForm}");
      if (modified == '1') {
        baseURL = baseURL + "&lksearch=" + searchParam;

      // Following is the ID of inputField that is the lookup to be customized as custom lookup
      if(txtId.indexOf('mycontact') > -1 ){
        isCustomLookup = true;

    if(isCustomLookup == true){
      openPopup(baseURL, "lookup", 350, 480, "width="+width+",height=480,toolbar=no,status=no,directories=no,menubar=no,resizable=yes,scrollable=no", true);
    else {
      if (modified == '1') originalbaseURL = originalbaseURL + originalsearchParam;
      openPopup(originalbaseURL, "lookup", 350, 480, "width="+originalwidth+",height=480,toolbar=no,status=no,directories=no,menubar=no,resizable=yes,scrollable=no", true);

When I press the button SAVE the new informations are not saved.

Where am I wrong?

Any problem with code problem in the code's page or is it because i have overridden the button?

Please help me.

Thank you very much.



I see above following has been used.

instead __c must be appended

Influencer__c.Account_Plan__c must be used in this case.

  • Please can you helpme again? When i press the button SAVE the new informations are not saved. Where am i wrong? have i a problem in the code's page or is it because i have overridden the button? I have updated my code in the question. Thank you very much. – Enry Jun 1 '13 at 13:17
