tried to deploy a a change set from 1 sandbox to another and it gives the error

"MyVisualForcePage does not exist or is not a valid override for action View"

. I included the VF page so I'm guessing it has to do with the way I overrided the View of the custom object with my VF page. Any clues? Here's MyVisualForcePage just in case I missed something(though its working fine even after tests). Any help appreciated, still a newbie at all this. Thanks in advance

<apex:page sidebar="false" showHeader="true" cache="false"     controller="GoogleMap_Meeting_Controller">

            <div id="map_canvas" style="width:100%; height:300px"></div>
        <div id="textDiv"></div>

Here is my controller class

public with sharing class GoogleMap_Meeting_Controller {

public List<Meeting__c> MeetingsList {get;set;}
public List<Meeting__c> MeetingsList2 {get;set;}

public GoogleMap_Meeting_Controller() {

    Id id = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('id');
    MeetingsList = [SELECT Name, Group__r.Id, Business_Value__c, Meeting_Date__c, GPS_Meeting_Location__Latitude__s, GPS_Meeting_Location__Longitude__s FROM Meeting__c WHERE Group__r.Id =:id ORDER BY Meeting_Date__c DESC LIMIT 10 OFFSET 1];
    MeetingsList2 =[SELECT Name, Group__r.Id, Business_Value__c, Meeting_Date__c, GPS_Meeting_Location__Latitude__s, GPS_Meeting_Location__Longitude__s FROM Meeting__c WHERE Group__r.Id =:id ORDER BY Meeting_Date__c DESC LIMIT 1];

} // end constructor

} // end class

One problem is that (from Overriding Standard Buttons and Tab Home Pages):

When overriding buttons with a Visualforce page, only Visualforce pages that use the standard controller for the object on which the button appears can be selected

This means that your page needs to look like this (change "Account" to the type you want to override the view for):

<apex:page sidebar="false" showHeader="true" cache="false"

and your controller must have this constructor:

public GoogleMap_Meeting_Controller(ApexPages.StandardController sc) {

Though that wouldn't explain why the problem only occurs in the org you are deploying to.

  • My guess is that the VF page was originally using a standard controller, then Kollo changed it to use a custom controller, so now it can't be used as an override. Commented Oct 16, 2014 at 11:51
  • @JeremyNottingham In the custom object the VF page was intended for, I had changed the view in Buttons, Links, and Actions to The VF page, but through a hack way of doing it. using an extension instead solved the problem
