I put a "new " button inside a vf page and after I inserted that vf page inside a section on the Account page layout. When a user click new, has to be redirected on the custom Object Referente Interno's edit page. The problem is when a user click "new" the "onclick" JavaScript doesn't work. This is my vf page:

<apex:page standardController="account" extensions="referentixpartner">

<style type="text/css">
    padding: 0 10px;

   backgroud-color: grey;

function new(){
   if ( (typeof window.sforce != 'undefined') && (window.sforce!=null) ) {
    else {     
<apex:form >
<apex:pageBlock >
<h3>Referenti Interni </h3>
<apex:commandButton value="New Referente Interno" immediate="true" onclick="new()"/>
<apex:pageBlockTable value="{!lista}" var="l" styleClass="tabella" title="Referenti interni"  >
<apex:column headerValue="Action">
<apex:outputLink value="/{!l.Referente_int__r.Id}" style="color:blue; padding:2px; text-decoration: none" target="_blanck" >View</apex:outputLink>

<apex:column value="{!l.Referente_int__r.Name}" headerValue="Nome"/>
<apex:column value="{!l.Referente_int__r.Cognome__c}" headerValue="Cognome"/>
<apex:column value="{!l.Referente_int__r.Ruolo__c}" headerValue="Ruolo"/>
<apex:column value="{!l.Referente_int__r.Cellulare__c}" headerValue="Tel"/>
<apex:column value="{!l.Partner__c}" headerValue="PartnerShip"/>
<apex:column value="{!l.Azienda_gruppo_ADS__c}" headerValue="Azienda"/>

"/a04/e?retURL=%2Fa04%2Fo " is the URL where the user has to be redirected. Help me please

  • When you say "doesn't work", what do you mean? Do you get an error in the js console? What is your debugging showing you? Do you have any useful information that might help us?

Change your javascript function name from new() to something else say new_method() as new is a keyword. It will work.
