How to determine the button that has been clicked ?

Hi all,


I have 2 customized buttons on a layout that called 2 different VF Pages. However these 2 VF Pages only have few differences.


I would like to use only a single VF Page and hide some elements depending from which button the VF Page has been called.


What I'm missing : how can I determine from my VF Page which button has been clicked ?


Thank you very much.

You could specify your buttons as URLs instead of VF references - then pass along a variable in the GET string such as "/apex/pageName?id=something&whichPage=2".


Take that variable into your controller and perform your IF/ELSE logic in there...set some flags, whatever needs to happen.
