I am working on a visualforce page which is embedded on (its) custom object's page layout. The problem I am running into is as follows:
The visualforce page contains custom input fields with text describing each input box, which means we are unable to use the drag and drop functionality on the page layout. I added a save button to the visualforce page, which worked fine, but the producers are not satisfied with having to save one individual section, as well as saving the entire page at the end. Simply clicking the standard save button on the page layout will not save the fields in the visualforce page. Hence, I need a way to override the save button, to save the visualforce page's fields and then proceed as usual, by calling the save method on the object. Any ideas would be appreciated.
