Can somebody help me with this code I am trying to change the value if the Validated__c field to true whenever the button is clicked.

Class Code:

global class checkbox{
    webservice static void check(Id localId) { 
        Account acc = new Account();
        acc.Id = localId ;
        acc.Validated__c = true;
        update acc;

Button Code:

alert("This is it!");
    alert("This is it!");

  • And when I am trying to run this class via developer console like this: checkbox.check(00128000002kYzm); (Passing some account's ID) It is showing error: Line: 1, Column: 26 expecting a right parentheses, found 'kYzm' – happy Sep 3 '15 at 19:09
  • If I've understood correctly then you want to mark Validated__c to true on click of button, right? Then why are you checking Account.Validated__c = true ?? (BTW, condition is also wrong, there should be one extra = if you want to check) – Abbas Sep 3 '15 at 19:16
  • Yeah you got it right. – happy Sep 3 '15 at 19:17
  • And btw if I am trying like: acc.Validated__c == true; Error: Compile Error: Expression cannot be a statement at line 7 column 17 – happy Sep 3 '15 at 19:17

I think the syntax around the execute statement is incorrect, I think you need to use single quotes here as it is being interpreted by Salesforce still and not JavaScript:

var retStr; // good to catch a return value, if any (I dont remember)
sforce.apex.execute("checkbox","check",{localId:'{!Account.Id}'}); //note single quotes, not double quotes in final parameter

Instead of calling a apex class from javacscript using AJAX toolkit, you could do the update in AJAX toolkit itself like below

var newRecords = [];
var A = new sforce.SObject("Account"); 
A.id ="{!Account.Id}"; 
A.Validated__c = 'true';
var result = sforce.connection.update(newRecords);

Hope it helps.
