Does anyone know if it is possible to embed in edit mode a standard page layout in a visualforce page (in edit mode)?

I've also tried the opposite, embed a visualforce page into an standard page layout, but it does not show de VF while editing, just in view mode.

Thanks in advance


As an alternative to using standard page layouts, you can use FieldSets. You can create several field sets and have your controller fetch the correct one with similar criteria as the page layouts. You can then use the field set to dynamically render your page. Basically, you will use an <apex:repeat> paired with <apex:pageBlockSecions> in order to simulate a Page Layout. (Not quite the same thing, but the closest I've found so far.)

  • Thanks dphil. But in this particular case, I've tried the approach you suggested, and it doesn't make the treak for me :) – nocovi Feb 17 '14 at 11:23
  • Yea, it is only useful in some cases, but still probably worth knowing as an option. – dphil Mar 17 '14 at 13:27
