Visual force Page standard Controller code:

<apex:page standardController="Account">
<apex:commandButton action="{!Cancel}" value="Back"/>
<apex:commandButton action="{!Save}" value="Save" />

The above code is Standard Controller Code, which contains standard commandbutton action such as cancel and save

custom object:

<apex:page standardController="Visit__c">
<apex:commandButton action="{!Cancel}" value="Back"/>
<apex:commandButton action="{!SaveNavigate}" value="Save">

The above code contains save and Navigate Option,how they are adding functionality of action called {!SaveNavigate} Manually in custom object.

  • What is your question, exactly? That second example won't work without a controller extension defined... – Adrian Larson Sep 7 '16 at 12:43
  • cancel and save command button belongs to account object,how save and navigate action is Created customally in that custom object How? – SFDC Sep 7 '16 at 12:44
  • Your examples are invalid. Every StandardController has the same methods, and saveNavigate is not one of them. The second <apex:page> tag should have an extensions attribute. Where are you getting these examples from? – Adrian Larson Sep 7 '16 at 12:46
  • or Save and Navigate is a Variable – SFDC Sep 7 '16 at 12:46

Every StandardController has the same available methods, and SaveNavigate is not one of them. In order to define such a method, you would need to Build a Controller Extension. Without specifying the extensions attribute on your <apex:page>, your included examples should fail to compile.


<apex:page standardController="MyObject__c" extensions="MyExtension">
        <apex:commandButton value="Custom" action="{!saveNavigate}" />


public with sharing class MyExtension
    public MyExtension(ApexPages.StandardController controller)
        // any necessary constructor logic
    public PageReference saveNavigate()
        // do stuff
