I have written the following code in salesforce

<apex:page Controller="Publication_Tab_Controller" showHeader="true" tabStyle="Publication__c">

<!-- Include meta tag to ensure proper rendering and touch zooming -->
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"></meta>

<!-- Include jQuery Mobile stylesheets -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css"></link>

<!-- Include the jQuery library -->
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>

<!-- Include the jQuery Mobile library -->
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

<apex:form >
<apex:tabPanel switchType="client" id="AccountTabPanel" value="{!tabOpt}">
<apex:tab label="Invitation" name="Invitation" id="tabInvitation">
<apex:pageBlock title="Publication">  
    <apex:pageblockTable value="{!pub}" var="a">  
     <apex:column headerValue="Pub-ID">  
      <apex:outputlink value="/{!a.id}">{!a.Name}</apex:outputlink>  
     <apex:column value="{!a.id}" headerValue="Publication SFDC Id"/> 
     <apex:column >

         <a href="#myPopup" data-rel="popup" class="ui-btn ui-btn-inline ui-corner-all">Accept invitation</a>

            <div data-role="popup" id="myPopup">
                  <p>These are the terms and conditions of viewing the publication.
                      <label><input type="checkbox" name="checkbox"> I agree</input></label>

                        <input type="button" id="Submit" value="Submit"></input>

                        <input type="reset" value="Cancel"></input>
         <!--apex:commandButton value="Accpet Invitaion" action="{!switch}" reRender="AccountTabPanel"/-->


<apex:tab label="View Publication" name="ViewPublication" id="tabViewPublication">
<apex:tab label="Approve" name="Approve" id="tabApprove">
                      <script name='Name'>
                             var j$ = jQuery.noConflict();




Along with the controller

public class Publication_Tab_Controller{
    public list <publication__c> pub {get;set;}
    public Publication_Tab_Controller() {

    String searchquery='select name,id from publication__c';  
    pub= Database.query(searchquery); 
    public Publication_Tab_Controller(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {
    public String tabOpt {get;set;}

    public void switch()
    public static void update_publication(publication__c publication)
        update publication;


But I am not being able to access the update_publication(publication__c publication) from the script. I just started learning salesforce and any help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance


According to the documentation https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.pages.meta/pages/pages_js_remoting_configuring_request.htm the correct JavaScript syntax for calling your Remote Action is:


Where a is your Account object and handleResult is the name of a JavaScript callback function that will run when the RemoteAction has completed, like this:

function handleResult(result, event) { ... }
  • I have a question regarding this . Here the 'a' was actually for <apex:pageblockTable value="{!pub}" var="a"> where pub is of type publication and is being accessed from the controller. Can I directly pass it to the Controller method update_publication? @dominic

  • No, the a is a visualforce variable tgat doesn't exist in the rendered html page. You will need to use a javascript variable that references the value.

  • Hi @dominic I am still having problems with passing the value of the 'a' variable back to the update_publication method. I would be really grateful if you show me a syntax for that. The variable 'a' is actually supposed to contain the value of the publication, the corresponding button of which is being clicked and the popup is being showed
