I had created a Visualforce page with an Activity History related list but it doesn't pop to a new window, after clicking log a call.

Please let me know how can I make this happen.

My issue is something related to this link

"New" button in a Related List VF page.

Here is the code below

<apex:page standardController="Account" standardstylesheets="true" sidebar="false" showheader="true">


<apex:relatedList list="ActivityHistories"/>


</apex:page>

    To be fair, the button on a standard page layout doesn't do this either. – Mark Pond Nov 18 '15 at 21:33
  • Are you using custom button for log a call? – Santanu Halder Nov 19 '15 at 7:36
  • Would help if you post your relevant code. – Santanu Halder Nov 19 '15 at 7:36
  • It is the standard button for "Log a Call" – DominicSeb Nov 19 '15 at 14:43

As per your example

first create a VF page

<apex:page standardController="Account" standardstylesheets="true" sidebar="false" showheader="true">


<apex:relatedList list="ActivityHistories"/>


</apex:page>

Now goto setup - task - create new button (Ex: - test btn) create a list button(with any behaviour)

now open any account records edit page layout

goto Activity history related list link on icon and add the button in related list

Now open your page with same account reocrd id.

--Create a custom button on object and create a above vf page with related list

in custom button write code

window.open("/apex/myAccountCasepage?id={!Case.Id}","My page","width=550,height=170,0,status=0,");

enter image description here

  • I wasn't talking about adding a button. But is there a way for the related list to open up a new window ?? – DominicSeb Nov 23 '15 at 15:31

  • How can I do it on a standard button like "log a Call" – DominicSeb Nov 24 '15 at 18:22
