  • Add rerender to your appropriate command button's

You can use the rerender attribute as you can see here.

You just have to specify an id to the section that you want to update on the button click. Here's the "Record details" pageBlock. Like this:

<apex:pageblock id="recordDetails" title="Record Details" >

Then, specify this id on the commandbutton:

 <apex:commandButton action="{!quickUpdat}" value="UpdateRecord" rerender="recordDetails" />
