I am trying to write a visual force page with extension to show the Parent records on a child record. In this situation, many cases (custom child object) are associated with Products(parent lookup). Also, many parent products may have the same cases associated with them.

I can display the cases associated to products in the related list. But the use case requires the parent products to be visible at the child level.

controller code:

public class CaseParentExt {

    public List<L1dlF0rm0rg__ICIX_Product__c> prods {get;set;}

    public static L1dlF0rm0rg__Case__c.Id caseId;

    public CaseParentExt()
        //line 9:           
        prods = [ SELECT Id, Name FROM L1dlF0rm0rg__ICIX_Product__c where  Id = :caseId];
    return prods.Id

Error I am receiving:

Line 9: sObject type 'L1dlF0rm0rg__ICIX_Product__c' is not supported. If you are attempting to use a custom object, be sure to append the '__c' after the entity name. Please reference your WSDL or the describe call for the appropriate names.

  • What package uses the namespace L1dlF0rm0rg? Are you sure the ICIX_Product__c object exists in that namespace? Also, the type for caseId should just be Id, not L1dlF0rm0rg__Case__c.Id. Also, your return statement isn't contained within the scope of a function. Also, you don't have a semicolon terminating the line with the return statement.

  • @AdrianLarson Ok, I have fixed a few things, the namespace issue, the sObject.Id issue, and the return terminating issue.

If it is a lookup you can query the fields required directly:

[Select L1dlF0rm0rg__ICIX_Product__c, L1dlF0rm0rg__ICIX_Product__r.Name From Case Where Id = :caseId]

this gets you the ID and the Name.

Lookup fields from the parent are singular and not queried like related lists.

  • I have revised the select statement to reflect yours. Now I am getting the error Initial term of field expression must be a concrete SObject: List<ICIX_V1__ICIX_Product__c> on line 9: prods = [ SELECT L1dlF0rm0rg__ICIX_Product__c, L1dlF0rm0rg__ICIX_Product__r.Name FROM L1dlF0rm0rg__Case__c where Id = :prods.Id]; I am going to take a stab and say its because its a list and I need to just put it as public?

  • @Jason most likely because you are doing prods.id when prods is a list

  • I changed out the prods.Id to just prods, now I am getting an Invalid Bind expression? Invalid bind expression type of ICIX_V1__ICIX_Product__c for column of type Id Line 7 (Select Statement.)
