Cancel Command Button not working because of required fields


I have a VF page associated with a controller extension with the "cancel" method, using PageReference. When I call the cancel method in the VF page, it works well.

However, I get an error message "you must enter a value" when I click on the Cancel button, because some fields on the page are required. If I fill in those fields, I can then cancel without problems.

Does anybody have any idea how to work around that?

Thanks a lot

Thanks very much Jill!

I have another quick question. Do you happen to know if dependent picklists are supported by VF?

Not currently.  It is on the roadmap though.
Ok, thanks for the quick answers.

I don't seem to need to specify immediate="true" for Cancel button.


PageReference setRedirect works fine with required fields blanked out.


Visualforce has updated this behaviour?
