Hi I'm new building Visualforce Pages with Controllers and I'm sure I'm missing something stupid here but I'm getting the following Error:

Error: Unknown constructor 'AuditTeamControllerExtension.AuditTeamControllerExtension(AuditController controller)

This are my custom controllers:

    public class AuditController {

/* Audit__c Object Section Begin*/    

    public Audit__c Audit {get; set;}

    public AuditController() {
        Id id = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id');
        String newID = '\''+id+'\'';
        system.debug('Reference ID: '+newID);
        Audit = (id == null) ? new Audit__c() : 
            Database.query('SELECT ' + String.join(new List<String>(Schema.getGlobalDescribe().get('Audit__c').getDescribe().fields.getMap().keySet()), ',') + ' FROM Audit__c ' + 'WHERE ' + 'Id='+newID);

    public PageReference save() {
        try {
        } catch(system.DmlException e) {
            return null;
        //After sucessful Save, navigate to the custom view page
        PageReference redirectSuccess = ApexPages.currentPage();
        return redirectSuccess;
/* Audit__c Object Section End */



    public class AuditTeamControllerExtension {

    public List<Audit_Team__c> AuditTeam {get; set;}

    public AuditTeamControllerExtension() {
        AuditTeam = [SELECT Id, Name, Audit__c, Auditor_Name__c, CreatedById, Role__c
                                      FROM Audit_Team__c
                                      WHERE Audit__c= :ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id')];

An extension controller needs reference to the "standard controller" to be accepted in its constructor. Update your code to replace the extension controller's constructor with:

public AuditTeamControllerExtension(AuditController controller) {

even if you don't then use that controller. Note that it is from the controller that you would normally obtain the ID of the object for which the page has been requested.


You are missing the constructor required for your Extension.

A controller extension is any Apex class containing a constructor that takes a single argument of type ApexPages.StandardController or CustomControllerName, where CustomControllerName is the name of a custom controller you want to extend.

You will need to define a constructor in your extension as below:

public AuditTeamControllerExtension(ApexPages.StandardController stdController) {
