I am trying to display all search results in a wrapper class, but there's this error showing up every time I save the controller:

Error: Compile Error: Constructor not defined: [CustomSettingController.ObjWrapper].(Object__c)

The error points to this line of code: oWrapper.add(new ObjWrapper(o));

Please take note that I omitted the search button from the visualforce page as I am trying to get rid of the error for now...

Apex Class:

public class CustomSettingController {

    public CustomSetting custSet {get; set;}
    public List<Object__c> objList {get;set;}
    public Integer rowToRemove {get;set;}
    public List<ObjWrapper> oWrapper {get;set;}
    String userinput; 

    public CustomSettingController() {
        String custSetId = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get( 'id' );

        if (custSetId != null ) {
            custSet = new CustomSetting([SELECT Id, Name, Role_Name__c FROM Setting1__c WHERE Id = :custSetId]);
        } else {
            custSet = new CustomSetting();

    public String getuserinput(){return userinput;}
    public void setuserinput(String userinp){this.userinput=userinp;}

    public List<SelectOption> getUserRoleList() {
        List<UserRole> userRoleList = [SELECT Id, Name FROM UserRole];
        List<SelectOption> uRoleOptionList = new List<SelectOption>();
        uRoleOptionList.add(new SelectOption(' ',' '));

        for(UserRole ur : userRoleList) {
            uRoleOptionList.add(new SelectOption(ur.Name, ur.Name));    

        return uRoleOptionList;

    public void search() {

        List<ObjWrapper> oWrapper = new List<ObjWrapper>();
        for(Object__c o : [SELECT Id, Name, Field1__c, Field1__r.Name FROM Object__c WHERE Field1__r.Name LIKE :userinput+'%']) {
            oWrapper.add(new ObjWrapper(o));    

        return null;


    public List<ObjWrapper> getResults() {

        return oWrapper; 


    public void addNewRowToObjList() {

        List<ObjWrapper> temp_objWrapper = new List<ObjWrapper>();
        ObjWrapper newObjWrap = new ObjWrapper();
        Object__c newO = new Object__c();
        newObjWrap.obj = newO;
        newObjWrap.index = temp_objWrapper.size();

        for(ObjWrapper owrap : temp_objWrapper) {


    public void removeRowFromObjList() {

        List<ObjWrapper> rem_objWrapper = new List<ObjWrapper>();

        for(ObjWrapper owrap : oWrapper) {


        for(ObjWrappe owrap2 : rem_objWrapper) {


    public class CustomSetting {
        public Id Id {get;set;}
        public String Name {get;set;}
        public String selectedRole {get;set;}

        public CustomSetting(Setting1__c s1) {
            this.Id = s1.Id;
            this.Name = s1.Name;
            this.selectedRole = s1.Role_Name__c;

        public CustomSetting() {}

        public Setting1__c getSetting1() {
            return new Setting1__c(
                Id = this.Id,
                Name = this.Name,
                Role_Name__c = this.selectedRole



    public class ObjWrapper {

        public Integer index {get;set;}
        public Object__c obj {get;set;}

You are passing the Object__c variable directly, but the wrapper class is not having any constructor to assign variable o to obj in wrapper class.

Try setting the variable like this,

oWrapper.add(new ObjWrapper(obj=o));


Add a constructor in wrapper class like this,

public class ObjWrapper {

   public Integer index {get;set;}
   public Object__c obj {get;set;}

   public ObjWrapper(Object__c o) {
      this.obj = o;

In this way it will know variable o needs to be assigned where.

Note: Default constructor is not a parameterized constructor.

  • I put the constructor in the wrapper class. The error on the line I have provided disappeared, but it got transferred to another line which is this line: ObjWrapper newObjWrap = new ObjWrapper(); from the addNewRowToObjList method

    Try adding a constructor without parameter too. public ObjWrapper() { } Means try having both the constructors Feb 17, 2018 at 9:42
  • Error's gone! Now I understand. Thanks for your help :)
