I made a 3 page site using visual force. In my 1st page, it has input controlling field called System Size (Product_Brief__c.System_Size_SUB_2013__c). In my second page I have input field called “Product_Brief__c.SUF_BPCs__c”. It has been link in to the same controlling field. I can not put “Product_Brief__c.SUF_BPCs__c” in second page with out above controlling field and it should be in the same page. Otherwise I will get an error. But I don’t want to have it on my second page, and is there any way I can link my controlling field in to second page or pass same value without changing this tag. Your help will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

You can add a hidden input (of the controlling field) in your second page

<apex:inputField style="display:none;" value="{!Product_Brief__c.System_Size_SUB_2013__c}"/>

<apex:inputField value="{!Product_Brief__c.SUF_BPCs__c}"/>

You can pass parameter between pages like here

in your case, it will be something like:

public Pagereference page2()
     PageReference pageRef = Page.page2;
     return PageRef

and in the controller of page2 just put the value of the parameter in your constructor for example

public class page2Controller
Product_Brief__c.SUF_BPCs__c = System.currentPagereference().getParameters().get('System_Size_SUB_2013');
  • Thanks for the answer. But when the customer select the System_Size_SUB_2013__c from the 1st page does that value pass it to second page automatically. because <apex:inputField value="{!Product_Brief__c.SUF_BPCs__c}"/> this field entirely depend on controlling field.

  • you can pass parameters between page and then set the value of the controlling field (see my edited post)
