I am trying to create, and assign a task related to an account whose page the user is on.

I am not getting any errors, and I can't make sense of the Debug Log.

The snippet of code I am trying to use is

            Task packTask = new Task();
            packTask.WhatId = thisAccount.Id;
            packTask.ActivityDate = packs.Check_Back__c;
            packTask.Type = 'Follow Up';
            packTask.OwnerId = UserInfo.getUserId();
            packTask.Status = 'Not Started';
            packTask.Priority = 'Normal';
            packTask.Description = 'Please call the person in charge of the training curriculum with '+ thisAccount.Name +' and take some time to speak with them regarding '+packs.Name;
            packTask.Subject = 'Check back regarding '+ packs.Name;

            insert packTask;

In the Send Task function it checks the "Check back date" field of a custom object to see if it has been changed.

I put in a "System.Debug" statement for it but it's not in the Debug log.

Full Apex:

public class packageinformationcontroller {

    public Account thisAccount {get;set;}

    public List<Package_Information__c> accountPackages {get;set;}

    public List<Package_Information__c> accountPackagesClone {get;set;}

    public List<Package__c> totalPackages {get;set;}

    public List<Id> currentPackages {get;set;}

    public packageinformationcontroller(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {
        this.thisAccount = (Account)controller.getRecord();
        totalPackages = [SELECT Id, Name FROM Package__c];
    }

    public void checkCurrentPackages(){
        currentPackages = new List<Id>();
        accountPackages = [SELECT Id, Name, Check_Back__c, Applicable__c, Account__c, Date_Offered__c, Notes__c, Package__c, Status__c FROM Package_Information__c WHERE Account__c = :thisAccount.Id];
        accountPackagesClone = accountPackages.clone();
        for (Package_Information__c pack : accountPackages){
            currentPackages.add(pack.Package__c);
        }
    }

    public void addMissingPackages(){

        checkCurrentPackages();

        List<Package__c> packsToAdd = new List<Package__c>();

        if (currentPackages != null){
            packsToAdd = [SELECT Id, Name FROM Package__c WHERE Id NOT IN :currentPackages];
        }
        else{

    }

                controller.save();

        return null;
    }

        List<Package_Information__c> PacksToSend;

        if (accountPackages.equals(accountPackagesClone)){
            System.Debug('The Clone Equals the Original.');
            return;
        }
        else{

            for (Integer i = 0; i >= accountPackages.size(); i++){
                if (accountPackages[i].Check_Back__c != accountPackagesClone[i].Check_Back__c){
                    PacksToSend.add(accountPackages[i]);
                }
            }
        }

        for (Package_Information__c packs : PacksToSend){
            Task packTask = new Task();
            packTask.WhatId = thisAccount.Id;

  • Not sure about your issue, but avoid your insert in the for a loop, it's not best practice. Create a new list of task, add your new task in your list and insert your list just after the loop. Same with new Packages. – Cloud Ninja Jun 1 '15 at 23:07

First off, to debug this, I would take the VisualForce page out of the equation. That's what unit tests are for. Create a test class that inserts the necessary records (Accounts, Package information records...), exercises your controller and asserts that the tasks are created. Once you know your controller logic is working, creating the VF page is just markup and data binding.

I would also remove some code that, in my opinion, is a bit redundant and just complicates reading the code. Apologies if I sound pedantic (that is not my intention), but in the past I've seen many times how cleaning up your code makes bugs in the code more obvious to see.

For instance, you have a catch block that returns null, when the normal method exit point returns null. You instantiate a standard controller just to save a record... can't that be done with a simple update statement? Your saveChanges method could look like this:

public ApexPages.PageReference saveChanges(){
    for (Package_Information__c packs : accountPackages){
          try {
            sendTask();
            update packs;
          }
          catch(Exception e) {}
    }
    return null;
}

Incidentally, it might be worth adding a debug statement in that catch. Perhaps your code is ending there?

If you do this with all your code, there's fewer lines of code and fewer things to go wrong.

Having said that, my guess is that accountPackages.equals(accountPackagesClone) is evaluating to true and you're exit the statement. Is that funny debug statement (as highlighted by @brovasi) supposed to be the indicator that 'The clone equals the original'?

As I said in my comment, there is a few things you should review absolutely. Never put a SQL or DML statement in a for loop.

Not sure if it's your system debug from the full code but in the apex log, I can see:

  • Well that was part of some old code but it does give me an idea where this is going wrong. Sorry for the crude joke, another developer thought it would be funny and that no one else would see. – Cody Beaner Jun 2 '15 at 14:22
  • Looking into it it seems the List.equals(); method is a superficial comparison, and is not looking into inner values. – Cody Beaner Jun 2 '15 at 14:46
