How can I have readonly fields in VisualForce Page?


I have a requirement to create a summary page which contains all the data related to a custom object or rather all the fields in that object but those values should appear as read-only. There will be a 'Edit' button on the page and on click of it all the fields should become editable.

How do I go about achieving this?

Hi Jina,

If you're just looking to create a standard summary page the following code should help you out.


If it looks simple, well it is.  To test it you'll need the ID of one of your custom objects.  If you open one the url will look something like this:

copy the 18 character id and append it to the url for your apex page, for example:

Is this what you were looking to accomplish Jina?
