I have Written the Visual Force Page Coding :

<apex:page standardController="Contact">
    <apex:form >
            <apex:pageBlockButtons location="top">
                <apex:commandButton action="{!Cancel}" value="Back"/>
            <apex:pageBlockSection >
                <apex:pageBlockTable id="sampleGrid" value="{!Contact.AccountId}" var="a">
                    <apex:inputfield label="Account"  value="{!Contact.AccountId}" />

output: it is Showing only one Grid line , but it is Not Displaying the lookupField on the Visual Force Page, How to Rectify the Error, Anyone Guide Me for the Answer

  • Your code is messy. Do you want to display one record or a list of records?

  • Just replace your <apex:pageBlockTable> section with a single <apex:inputfield label="Account" value="{!Contact.AccountId}" />. It will be working

The way you use the pageBlockTable is little confusing as I see. You have to add apex:column tag in order to bring the columns of the table. Try below code for the table. This way you can add more columns to your table.

<apex:pageBlockTable id="sampleGrid" value="{!Contact.AccountId}" var="a">
    <apex:column >
        <apex:facet name="header">Account</apex:facet>
        <apex:inputfield label="Account"  value="{!Contact.AccountId}" />

When you use pageBlockTable, the advantage is to bind dynamic values of a list into rows by using the value and var attribute value. Check the documentation linked. This is not being used in the code anyway. Hope you are in a mid of a development.

  • The code will be working. But it doesn't make any sense to use pageBlockTable here.

  • @user36188 : when using Apex:pageblocktable , label will not appear, as it is already comes as header of table.
