I have Custom Controller I want to call with a Custom Button on the Opportunity Page. The Custom Controller will get the Opportunity Id from the Opportunity page.

I getting this errors: 1.Unknown property 'OpportunityStandardController.opportunities' 2.Constructor not defined: [ApexPages.StandardController].(List)

Apex class:

public class updateoppty {
    List<Opportunity> opportunities = new List<Opportunity>();
    public updateoppty(ApexPages.StandardController sc){
        opportunities = [SELECT Id,Name,Account.Name,StageName FROM opportunity WHERE Id = :ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id')];

public List<Opportunity> getOpptyDetail(){
    return opportunities;

public PageReference save() {
    catch(System.DmlException e){
         return null;
Pagereference view = new ApexPages.StandardController(opportunities).view();
return (view);

VS Code:

<apex:page standardController="Opportunity" extensions="updateoppty" tabStyle="Opportunity">
    <apex:form id="opptyForm">
        <apex:pageBlock title="Opportunity_list">
            <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!opportunities}" var = "opporty">
                <apex:inputField value = "{!opporty.Name}"/>
                <apex:inputField value = "{!opporty.Account.Name}"/>
                  <apex:inputField value = "{!opporty.StageName}"/>    
            <apex:commandButton action="{!Save}" value="Save"/>

Please anyone help me to solve this error.

    The opportunities does not have a public getter in your code.

The opportunities does not have a public getter in your code. So you can either create a method of just do

public List<Opportunity> opportunities {get;set;}

  • Now It doesn't throw error but it didn't show any fields in opportunity.It only show save button .When I click the save button it throws some message Could not resolve the entity from <apex:inputField> value binding '{!opporty.Name}'. <apex:inputField> can only be used with SObjects, or objects that are Visualforce field component resolvable. and one more point I want to update my opportunity using custom button.Please help me to solve this issue.

  • You cannot put apex:inputfield as a direct child of apex:pageBlockTable, you need to put it inside apex:column. Jun 28, 2020 at 13:18
