I have a custom button on Quote standard detail page which on Click opens up a Jquery dialogue box containing an iframe with src as a visualforce page(rendered as pdf) and contains two Button "save" and "Save and Email". a)Is it possible call a Apex class method when we click on these button, if yes how can we achieve this. b)If No, how can we achieve this with any other approach.

Here is the code for the javascript Custom button :-


var j$ = jQuery.noConflict();
var iframe_url = '/apex/CustomVisualforcePageRenderedAsPdf';

var j$modalDialog = j$('<div></div>') 
.html('<iframe id="iframeContentId" src="' + iframe_url + '" frameborder="0" scrolling="auto" height="100%" width="100%" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" />') 
    autoOpen: false, 
    title: 'Support Merge Fields', 
    resizable: false, 
    width: 700, 
    height: 300, 
    autoResize: true, 
    modal: true, 
    draggable: false,
buttons: [
            text: "Save",
            click: j$.noop,
            type: "submit"
            text: "Save And Email",
            click: function() {
                j$( this ).dialog( "close" );

  • @NITHESHK, this script is not present on a visualforce page and is present on a custom javascript button. Sep 15, 2017 at 13:08

Yes, you can. See Apex in AJAX for details, but basically, you'll bind some functions to call more functions.



click: function() {
    var result = sforce.apex.execute('ClassName','Method',{ params ... })
