I have Written Apex Class:

public class one{
   public PageReference method() {
      return null;
   public string acName{set;get;}
   public integer acPhone{set;get;}
   public List<Account> accs{set;get;}
   public string accid {set;get;}
   public pagereference save(){
       //accid = apexpages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id');
       accs = [select id,name,phone,type from account limit 10];
       return null;

VisualForce Page:

<apex:page controller="one" action="{!save}">
    <apex:form >
        <apex:pageBlock id="one">
            <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!accs}" var="a">
                <apex:column value="{!a.id}"/>
                <apex:column value="{!a.name}"/>
                <apex:column >
                <apex:commandButton value="click" action="{!save}" reRender="two">
                <apex:param name="accountName" value="{!a.name}" assignTo="{!acName}"/>
        <apex:pageBlock id="two">
            <apex:pageBlockSection >
                <apex:pageBlockSectionItem >

what is the use of this Line:

<apex:param name="accountName" value="{!a.name}" assignTo="{!acName}"/>

if I Remove this Line also it is Not showing any Effect in the output,anyone explains the Logic for <apex:param> tag

In general term, the <apex:param> tag is used to pass values from JavaScript to an Apex controller, it can be used with the following parent tags.








<apex:commandButton value="click" action="{!save}" reRender="two">
    <apex:param name="accountName" value="{!a.name}" assignTo="{!acName}"/>

In general word, when you click on this button. apex:param will assign the a.name value to controller acName variable. This way you can get the Account name in controller

  • when i click the command button No action is Performed in the output, how to identify for the apex param value, shall i set any Debug log for this apex class
