Do overriding standard buttons work in mobile?



In our project, we have overridden some of the standard object's new & edit buttons with visualforce pages. Now we have decided to include salesforce mobile into our project scope. And we are testing the app's behaviour in blackberry simulator. But it seems like the overriding feature does not work in mobile (i.e. even though i ve overridden the account's new button with a vf page, in mobile the vf page is not showing up. Instead it is just showing the mobile version of standard account's new page). So, I am wondering whether the "Overridding standard buttons with VF pages" feature is available for mobile or am I missing some configuration setup. Can anyone help me through this?


Thanks in advance,



Hi, did you ever find a workaround to this issue?


From my research I found that the overrides will not work in mobiles. Even Salesforce advices to implement the logic in a trigger instead of overrides. If you could not use triggers, then you have to create a mobile vf page. Search for "VisualForce mobile" ot learn how to develop a vf page in mobile.
