I'm trying to show the value of a custom setting in a Visualforce page using custom controller

Put the controller

public Client__c phone {get;set;} 
  public static Client__c phone =  Client__c.getOrgDefaults();

And Visualforce Page

Phone: {!phone}

But it shows the value of the page

Can anyone help?

  • getorgDefaults will get you default values but if you are looking for specific data from a custom settings please refer the answer below – Mohith Shrivastava Aug 9 '13 at 11:33

At the visualforce page you need to define witch setting you want to show. With getOrgDefaults() method you will get the custom setting data set record for the organization. In this set all the settings are saved. You need to provide the setting API name:

Phone: {!phone.SettingName__c}

You can learn more about it here: Custom Settings Methods, Accessing Custom Settings


If its hierarchical custom setting you can access in visualforce using global variables


Where Field__c is the field from the custom setting you want to access data

Here is the sample page and class that you can refer to get started

<apex:page controller="customsettingcontroller">

 -----------Accessing Hirerachy Custom Setting No Need Of controller------------------------------




  -----------------------------------------Accessing List Custom Setting requires some code in controller-----------------------




Controller class

public class customsettingcontroller{

public String getphone(){

    return Clientlist__c.getInstance('Client').phone__c;
