I have the following objects:

Object: A

  • Picklist: I
  • Field: 1
  • Field: 2
  • Field: 3

Object: B (This is where I want the visualforce page (table)

Current visualforce page that works in Object B:

<apex:page StandardController="B__c" showHeader="false" sidebar="false">
<apex:pageBlock title="Numbers">
    <apex:pageBlockSection >
        <apex:outputField value="{! B__c.1__c }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! B__c.3__c }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! B__c.2__c }"/>
    </apex:pageBlockSection>
</apex:pageBlock>
</apex:page>

Trying to update it so that I can pull the numbers from the related object. Also trying to change it to a table type. The reason why is because I have a picklist in Object A that I would like to use in the table so I know what numbers belong to what item in the picklist.

<apex:page StandardController="B__c" showHeader="false" sidebar="false">
<apex:pageBlock title="A Fields">
    <apex:pageBlockSection >
        <apex:outputField value="{! A__r.I__c }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! A__r.1__c }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! A__r.2__c }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! A__r.3__c }"/>
    </apex:pageBlockSection>
</apex:pageBlock>
</apex:page>

this obviously does not work. How can I solve this?

You can access parent objects fields like this.

<apex:page StandardController="B__c" showHeader="false" sidebar="false">
<apex:pageBlock title="A Fields">
    <apex:pageBlockSection >
        <apex:outputField value="{! B__c.A__r.I__c }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! B__c.A__r.1__c }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! B__c.A__r.2__c }"/>
        <apex:outputField value="{! B__c.A__r.3__c }"/>
    </apex:pageBlockSection>
</apex:pageBlock>
</apex:page>

Even for standard objects, it works in a similar way.
