Hi Bernd,

Can you elaborate your problem? Are you trying to add a VisualForce Component into a VisualForce template?

Can you clarify what you mean by "he/she is added"? Are you planning to implement this via a workflow rule?

Hello, basically I already have a pdf as a component in the production, so all I want to do is creating an event trigger that sends this pdf as an email to a person who has been added to accounts.

Got it. In that case all you would need to do is to create an activate a workflow rule that would use the email template to send out based on your rule requirements. Are you having issues with that?

Hi Bernd,

here use EmailTemplate et=[Select id from EmailTemplate where name=:'EmailTemplatename'];
and use this emailtemplate id to use the template

like mail.setTemplateId(et.id);


choose it as best answer if it has helped you

@Cloud yes, I already tried it but all I'm getting are exceptions, I think I just need the right query to reach out to that pdf, allowing me to send it.
