So I was trying to create a VF page which on clicking Save will re-direct the page to google form and following is the code I am using. This is currently loading the page back to VF on edit mode.

<script type="text/javascript">
   function navigate(){
      var desc=document.getElementById('{!$Component.thepage.theform.thepgblk.VF_buttons.thepgsection.desc}');
      var url='https://docs.google.com/a/forms/d/112GYhKbx5Ux833UDI_dEA1yL2eHuW0pr5blOymLoRsg/viewform?entry.399734918=&entry.571044671='+desc+'&entry.488162040&entry.1220858109=TEST+SALES&entry.449060360&entry.776835233&entry.754748200&entry.1408822280&entry.315413522&entry.1366373962=Just+a+Test&entry.1716955237=Step+1+%0AStep+2%0AStep+3';
      return url;

  <apex:form id="theform"> 
        <apex:pageBlock id="thepgblk">
        <apex:pageBlockButtons id="VF_buttons" location="top"> 
        <apex:commandButton onclick="navigate();" value="Save"/>
        <apex:commandButton onclick="window.close();" value="Close" />

        <apex:pageBlockSection id="thepgsection">
          <apex:inputfield id="desc" value="{!escalation.Problem_Description__c}"/>
  • What part isn't working? Where are you stuck? How can we help? Dumping code with no description of the problem is not likely to elicit much help from the community. – Mark Pond May 20 '15 at 21:50
  • Ya I guess I was unclear ! this is my first Post here in the community will keep that in mind ! Thanks Mark and I got helped btw. – Sanjay May 20 '15 at 22:09
  • If you got helped, perhaps update the question and answer it so we can all learn, or delete the question. Thanks! – DavidSchach May 20 '15 at 22:33

When you click on the save button it just sends the form data/reloads the current page so try to replace the save command button with below element:

<input onclick="navigate();" value="Save" class="btn" title="Save" name="save" type="button" />

Hope this will help you.

  • Great! One more thing, I don't see any sense using apex:form there so remove it and replace all other buttons with pure html buttons. – Ruslan Vekua May 20 '15 at 22:05
