As in the above pic shows, I don't want to display the System error message which i rounded in pic. How can i make disable it? I want to display only the message what we used generally in ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.message(ApexPages.severity.error,'Error Message'));. I can make this possible by using if - else condition (Please see the code which i used made it). but i want get it through using try - catch blocks only. And also please tell me that how we are getting Required fields are missing: [Account Name] message. Is that system validation rule or any other error message?

You can also see the code which i have used.

    public void comittedResult() {
        aOne=[select id,name,phone,Industry from Account where ID=:accid];
       /* if (String.isBlank(accName)){
            ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.message(ApexPages.severity.error,'Please enter account name'));
        else if(!(pattern.matches('[0-9]+',accPhone))){
            ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.message(ApexPages.severity.error,'Please enter correct phone number'));
        else  {*/
        aOne.name = accName;
        aOne.phone = accPhone;
        update aOne;
        displayPopup = false;
   //   }
     }catch(DMLException e){
         ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.message(ApexPages.severity.error,'Please enter Name'));
  • @Kumaar, if you're using an apex:inputField element you can simply add required="true" attribute to it, and it will not allow name to be blank and it will save unnecessary server operation. Aug 8 '16 at 7:21
  • KS Kumaar.. Can you please closed this question by accepting that answer which you used as your solution.

If you want to have this field not blank you can achieve this using the visualforce required='true' attribute.

So if you have:

<apex:inputText value='{!a.Name}'/>

just change it to:

<apex:inputText value='{!a.Name)' required='true'/>

And it should validate that the name won't be blank, and won't send an unnecessary server-call and won't do an unnecessary DML operation.


instead of adding the add error in the catch block. first, check the name is null or not

if(accName == null)
    ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.message(ApexPages.severity.error,'Please enter Name'));

OR another way to show only one error message in page

catch(DMLException e){
    ApexPages.Message msg = new ApexPages.Message(Apexpages.Severity.ERROR, e.getdmlMessage(0) );
  • Hi Ratan, The same two messages are coming even by using e.getdmlMessage(0)

  • @KSKumaar with e.getdmlMessage(0) are you using (ApexPages.severity.error,'Please enter Name') this as well?

  • Yeah @Ratan. I am using it.
    – KS Kumaar

  • @KSKumaar dont' use both only use only one i.e. e.getdmlMessage(0)

  • I used only e.getdmlMessage(0). But it is giving Required fields are missing: [Account Name]. This is system error message. right?

if(accName == null || accName == '') {
    ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.message(ApexPages.severity.error,'Please enter Name'));


catch(DMLException e){
    if(e.getMessage().contains('Required fields are missing')){
        ApexPages.Message myMsg = new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.Severity.ERROR,'Please Enter Account Name');
