Can anyone help me with the test class for below controller. I am trying to get the values of the vf page on save of a new record. standard controller will be null at that point but i need to access the values so I can save it.

public CA_SamsAccountController(ApexPages.StandardController std) {
  samsid = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id');
   accid = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('AccountId');
    cont =  (CA_SamsAccount__c)std.getRecord();  --- this line gives me error whenever I try to run the test class if i remove the above if condition

    public PageReference save() { 
        string acctype = bc.getSamsAccountTypes();
        cont.CA_Sams_Account_Name__c = str;
        cont.CA_Account__c = acc.id;
        cont.CA_Account_name__c = accname;
        cont.CA_ApiLastName__c = '.api';
        cont.CA_Country__c = selectedCountry;
        cont.CA_contract__c = contractid;
        cont.CA_Parent_ID__c = selectedParent;
        cont.CA_MisPassword__c = temp1;
        cont.CA_ApiPassword__c = temp;
        cont.CA_AccountTypeId__c = acctype;
        con = [select lastname,firstname,phone,email from contact where id=: cont.CA_Contact__c limit 1];   --- I always have cont as null and hence not able to fetch contact
        cont.CA_First_Name__c = con.firstname;
        cont.CA_Last_Name__c = con.lastname;
        cont.CA_Telephone__c = con.phone;
        cont.CA_Email__c = con.email;
        insert cont;

     public string getApiorgname()
   string apiorgname = '';
   string api = cont.CA_Sams_Account_Name__c;  --- same issues goes here as well
   list<CA_SamsAccount__c> clist = [select CA_ApiFirstName__c from CA_SamsAccount__c where CA_ApiFirstName__c=: api];
       for(CA_SamsAccount__c c : clist)
   apiorgname = checkpattern(api);
   apiorgname = apiorgname + '.api';
   system.debug('api==='+ apiorgname);
   return apiorgname;

Test class

static testmethod void mytest(){
        Account a = new account(name = 'test');
        insert a;
        contact c = new contact (lastname='abc', firstname = 'ABC', phone ='987656');
        insert c;
         System.currentPageReference().getParameters().put('AccountId', a.id);
         //get your page reference here. PageReference pageRef = Page.YourPageName;
        //pageRef.getParameters().put('Id', null );

       //pageRef.getParameters().put('AccountId', a.id);
        CA_SamsAccountController cs = new CA_SamsAccountController(null);
       list<SelectOption> testoptions = cs.getParent();
        list<SelectOption> testoptions1 = cs.getCountry();
        cs.selectedCountry = 'none';
        cs.selectedParent = 'none';
     static testmethod void mytest1(){
        Account a = new account(name = 'test');
        insert a;
         string samsacc = a.name.replace(' ','_').tolowercase();
        contact c = new contact (lastname='abc', firstname = 'ABC', phone ='987656');
        insert c;
        CA_SamsAccount__c sacc= new CA_SamsAccount__c(CA_Account__c = a.id, CA_Contact__c = c.id, CA_Country__c = 'test', CA_Parent_ID__c = 'test', CA_Sams_Account_Name__c = samsacc );
        insert sacc;
        System.currentPageReference().getParameters().put('id', sacc.id);
         System.currentPageReference().getParameters().put('AccountId', a.id);

        apexPages.standardController newCntr=new apexPages.standardController(sacc);
        CA_SamsAccountController cs = new CA_SamsAccountController(newCntr);
       list<SelectOption> testoptions = cs.getParent();
        list<SelectOption> testoptions1 = cs.getCountry();
        cs.selectedCountry = 'none';
        cs.selectedParent = 'none';
         cs.con = c;

1.)You need to get the page reference for the page first as below:

PageReference pageRef = Page.YourPageName;

2.) Set the current page in test class first as below :


3.)Then set the parameters as below :

pageRef.getParameters().put('Id', samsid );

pageRef.getParameters().put('AccountId', accid );

4.)Then instantiate standard controller and its extension:

ApexPages.StandardController sc = new ApexPages.StandardController (obj);    
CA_SamsAccountController caSams = new CA_SamsAccountController (sc); 
  • @Priya It would be better if you could post your test class.As community will get a better idea of your problem.

  • @Priya, Set page reference first and then set its parameters. In your test class , you haven't set the page reference and hence it is unable to find the parameters . Just follow the mentioned steps in my answer and see if it works.

  • I tried the same code.. no luck still it has null value. not sure where am i missing it. Apr 5 '17 at 6:17

Try to use below piece of code where is shows how to test the Standard Controller extension and how to setCurrentPage reference and add url parameter.

Contact cObj = new Contact(LastName='TestContact#123')
insert cObj;
ApexPages.StandardController sc = new ApexPages.StandardController(cObj);
NewContactCntrl testAccPlan = new NewContactCntrl(sc);

PageReference pageRef = Page.ContactPage;    //set the Page 
pageRef.getParameters().put('id', String.valueOf(cObj.Id)); //Add URL parameter
  • Hi, I have tried this but still it has null value. I have posted my test class as well Apr 5 '17 at 6:19
