I am fairly new to Visualforce and I have been trying to create a Related List in VF on object Employee__c to show all of the devices with an ‘Active’ status (Status__c field on Device__c object). There is a master-detail relationship on Device__c to Employee__c. The child relationship name is Relatedemployees.

I also tried to make sure the edit and delete buttons on the Related List do not appear.

Here are my codes:


<apex:page standardController="Employee__c" extensions="ActiveDevices">
     <apex:detail relatedList="true">
         <apex:relatedList id="CustomList" list="Relatedemployees" title="Active Devices" 

         <style type="text/css">
                .actionColumn {display:none; visibility:hidden}


   public class ActiveDevices {
       public List<Device__c> getactDevices() {
           List<Device__c> actDevices = 
              [SELECT Name__c, Type__c, Serial_Number__c, Status__c,  
                 FROM Device__c WHERE  Status__c == 'Active' ];
           return actDevices;

    did you try: .actionColumn {display:none !important; visibility:hidden !important}

  • Jacob, can you explain what the issue you are facing ? are you not able to hide the action buttons ? or the list of records not being displayed as you expected ? Aug 31, 2014 at 10:17

This worked for me:

<style type="text/css">
            th.actionColumn {display:none !important; visibility:hidden !important} 
            td.actionColumn {display:none !important; visibility:hidden !important}
