I have a method in my Controller that is defined as:

global static Chart getChartObject( String chartName, String patient ){..}

The return value is a class defined inside the controller. When I attempt to call the method from the JavaScript using the following call;

Visualforce.remoting.Manager.invokeAction( '{!$RemoteAction.ChartController.getChartObject}', p, handleResult, handleFailure );

it fails. The error returned is that the method ChartController.getChartObject could not be found.

Any ideas of what to look for?

From what I can see in the documentation, this should work. I had a similar callback that returned a List of objects that were defined in the database. The one I'm attempting to return here is an Apex class but the documents state that it should be able to do that.

Thanks in advance.

    Make sure that ChartController is the controller or extension for the page. Only the controller or extension's remote actions are available to a Visualforce page.

It looks like you aren't passing the right number of parameters to the controller class. You getChartObject method needs a chartname and a patient. In your JS, it looks like you are only passing in one parameter, p.

  • That would be an incorrect parameters error, not a method not found error. JavaScript isn't "compiled" in the sense that parameters matter.

  • I was passing null for the Patient parameter. I removed it and I'm back to working. I didn't try setting it to an empty string yet. That will be my next thing. Now I've run into other issues. Jul 19, 2013 at 15:22
