I have a custom object that has various record types. How would I construct URLFOR statement to take me to the new action for a particular record type?


The RecordType I want to go to is called AccountAccountRelationship in the Record Type Name field

Also I feel like I should mention that this is part of an outputLink and the value is being set to this URLFOR


I believe you would need to use the p3 parameter for that.

{!URLFOR($Action.Relationship_Detail__c.New, null, [p3="Id of your record type",save=1])}

Please check the syntax though.

  • When I do that it goes to the new relationship page but it only prepopulates the dropdown box with the correct record type and then I have to push continue. Any way to skip the pushing continue and just go straight to the correct record type page? – Louis Pujol Jun 19 '14 at 16:44
  • try adding save=1, I edited my answer – Richard N Jun 19 '14 at 16:46
  • No that hasn't changed anything. – Louis Pujol Jun 19 '14 at 16:49
  • Sorry the save=1 actually saves the record. What id are you using for the p3 param? Is it the 15 digit or 18 digit number? – Richard N Jun 19 '14 at 16:56
  • The 15 digit one – Louis Pujol Jun 19 '14 at 16:57
