I'm looking for a way to hide a button depending on the field value.

My goal here is that the button will be hidden IF Product_Family__c is EQUAL to "Services".


public Opportunity currentOpportunity {get; set;}
public void getOppty(){
        Opportunity opp = [SELECT Id, Product_Family__c FROM Opportunity WHERE Id=: currentOpportunity.Id];  



            <apex:commandButton styleClass="slds-button slds-button_neutral slds-m-top_large"
                                value="Add Item" action="{!addItemRow}" reRender="tableId" status="status" render="{!getOppty}">

I'm still missing the criteria for the APEX, any ideas?

Any kind of help is much appreciated!

  • What does the rest of your VF page look like? Is it using the opportunity standard controller? – Nick Cook Aug 21 '19 at 6:53
  • @NickCook Yes, it's using the opportunity standard controller – Naofumi Kun Aug 21 '19 at 6:55

You just need to use the rendered parameter on the apex:commanButton element.


<apex:commandButton rendered="{!Opportunity.Product_Family__c != 'Services'}" value="Add Item" action="{!addItemRow}" reRender="tableId" status="status" />

You don't need any apex code if all you want to do is control whether the buttons is displayed on page load.
