I have a very simple VF page (below) but it does not really support Inline Editing. When I double-click a field that should accept editing (with a pencil icon), the Save/Cancel buttons show up but the text-box does not show up. Picklists, Lookups, check-boxes also do not work.

Beyond that, when I press Save, nothing happens. The Save button goes light-grey but no actions take place. The Cancel button works.

Is there a step I am missing that will actually activate inline editing or have I found a bug?

Note: The standard view page on the same Opportunity works as expected.

Note: Within the JS console, these two errors are displayed:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'Tab' of undefined main.js:1002 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'Icons' of undefined

<apex:page standardController="Opportunity">
   <apex:detail subject="{!Opportunity}" inlineEdit="true" /> 
  • Where are you viewing the page? Standard UI? Service Console? Portal?

    I created the exact page you present above, and it works perfectly. Is there any other code in your version? Feb 1, 2014 at 13:41
  • The code is posted is exactly what I am testing with. It was more complex before but I stripped it down to its bare bones to try to troubleshoot it. Feb 1, 2014 at 14:13

    Try clearing cache ("Clear browsing data...", "Empty the cache" in Chrome) and logging in to a fresh session. Feb 1, 2014 at 17:08
