I have a visual force page and a button called that is supposed to take the user to another visual force page.

A problem however is this page is completely blank or just isn't loading it seems.


   <table width="100%">
            <td width="20%"><apex:commandButton action="{!createQuote}" value="Create Quote" /></td>

Apex Controller

public PageReference createQuote()
    PageReference pr = new PageReference('/apex/UDQuote');
    return pr;


    hello world
  • can you try instead of PageReference pr = new PageReference('/apex/UDQuote'); the following line: PageReference pr = Page.UDQuote; ? – Oleksandr Berehovskyi Oct 19 '18 at 11:12

This should be sufficient and avoids typos in the page name and to ensure that the page is present:

public PageReference createQuote()
    return Page.UDQuote;

though you would get the error of "Page UDQuote does not exist" if it wasn't.

I'd update the text in the page to be sure something is there in case a blank version of the page is in the org.


In response to the comment question about adding parameters, the expression Page.UDQuote is really a factory method that creates a new PageReference instance so you can pass parameters like this:

public PageReference createQuote()
    PageReference pr = Page.UDQuote;
    pr.getParameters().put('myKey', 'myValue');
    return pr;
  • Is there a way to also pass a parameter to that page or its own apex controller, for example an Id or list? – Alexander Atkinsoon Oct 19 '18 at 12:19
  • @AlexanderAtkinsoon See the PS. – Keith C Oct 19 '18 at 12:25
