When calling an apex method from any of the following

Should it always be a PageReference type rather than a void?
I found some references to displaying report data in Lightning but have got stuck.
I'm using a simple Account Visit report which has a group but I don't find it with the code I have. Basically, I see the results in a JSON but can't interpret them into my chart.
Here's my class:
public class ReportViaApexController {
    public static string getReportPlanned(String AccId){
        //Report repRec = [SELECT Id, Name, DeveloperName FROM Report WHERE DeveloperName LIKE 'Catalogue_Summary%'];
        Report repRec = [SELECT Id, Name, DeveloperName FROM Report WHERE DeveloperName LIKE 'Visit_Reports_by_accounts%'];
        string reportPlannedId=repRec.Id;
        string filterId=String.valueOf(AccId).substring(0, 15);
        // Retrieves report metadata
        Reports.ReportDescribeResult describe = Reports.ReportManager.describeReport(reportPlannedId);
        Reports.ReportMetadata reportMd = describe.getReportMetadata();
        // Add/Override filters
        Reports.ReportFilter filterlist = reportMd.getReportFilters()[0];
        filterlist .setValue(filterId);
        //filterlist .setValue('In Progress');
        //and Run report
        Reports.ReportResults reportResult = Reports.ReportManager.runReport(reportPlannedId,reportMd);
        system.debug('ReportResultsJSON '+JSON.serialize(reportResult));
        MAP<String,Reports.ReportFact> summarizedRows=reportResult.getFactMap();
        System.debug('summarizedRows: ' + summarizedRows);
        // Get the first down-grouping in the report
        Reports.Dimension dim = reportResult.getGroupingsDown();
        System.debug('dim: ' + dim);
        Reports.GroupingValue groupingVal = dim.getGroupings()[0];
        System.debug('Key: ' + groupingVal.getKey());
        System.debug('Label: ' + groupingVal.getLabel());
        System.debug('Value: ' + groupingVal.getValue());
        // Construct a fact map key, using the grouping key value
        String factMapKey = groupingVal.getKey() + '!T';
        // Get the fact map from the report results
        Reports.ReportFactWithDetails factDetails =
        // Get the first summary amount from the fact map
        Reports.SummaryValue sumVal = factDetails.getAggregates()[0];
        System.debug('Summary Value: ' + sumVal.getLabel());
        // Get the field value from the first data cell of the first row of the report
        Reports.ReportDetailRow detailRow = factDetails.getRows()[0];
        return JSON.serialize(reportResult);


My component from the bundle ReportViaApex:

I am overriding "new event" from calendar in an aura component. How do I get the date from the selected cell? It defaults to today.
I have system.debug statements at the start of and throughout my method and they all report as expected.
I create a new list of a wrapper class. .
When I add a newly created wrapper object to the list, it causes any debug statements before the call to disappear.
Any suggestions?
I can create a file using:
String strDebug = 'some debug information \n';
        //SELECT title,  LatestPublishedVersionId FROM ContentDocument where title = 'debuglog.txt'
        ContentVersion file = new ContentVersion(
            title = 'debuglog.txt',
            versionData = Blob.valueOf( strDebug ),
            pathOnClient = '/debuglog.txt'
        insert file;

but how do I overwrite it (add a new version) so I don't get multiple 'debuglog.txt' files?
Is there a 'Who' lookup or do I need to have both a Contact and a User field with a check that only one of these is used?
What, if any, are the pitfalls?
A Trailblazer Community posting (https://success.salesforce.com/_ui/core/userprofile/UserProfilePage?u=00530000001sMqZ&tab=sfdc.ProfilePlatformFeed&fId=0D53A00004Y1vM9&s1oid=00D300000000iTz&emkind=chatterGroupDigest&s1nid=0DB30000000072L&emtm=1566722973622&s1uid=0053A00000DGqXQ&fromEmail=1&s1ext=0)led me to develop this handy solution for exporting the Country and State codes. Knowledge article 338321  (https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000338321&type=1&mode=1) was the starting point.
Here's the Visualforce Page:
<apex:page controller="ExportToExcelController" readOnly="true" 
    action="{!fetchListOfCountryCodes}" contentType="application/vnd.ms-excel#{!fileName}.xls">
  <!-- https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000338321&type=1&mode=1 -->  
        <apex:repeat value="{!Countries}" var="cos">
        <apex:repeat value="{!States}" var="st">

and the controller:
public class ExportToExcelController {
    public String fileName {get; set;}
    public List<List<String>> Countries {get; set;}
    public List<List<String>> States {get; set;}

    public void fetchListOfCountryCodes() {
        List<Schema.PicklistEntry> ple;
        fileName = 'countryandstatecodes';
        Countries = new List<List<String>>();
        Schema.DescribeFieldResult fieldResult = User.Countrycode.getDescribe();
        ple = fieldResult.getPicklistValues();
        for( Schema.PicklistEntry f : ple){
            List<String> aCountry = new List<String>();
        	//System.debug(f.getLabel() +'::'+ f.getValue());
        States = new List<List<String>>();
        fieldResult = User.statecode.getDescribe();
        ple = fieldResult.getPicklistValues();
        for( Schema.PicklistEntry f : ple){
            List<String> aState = new List<String>();
        	//System.debug(f.getLabel() +'::'+ f.getValue());

The "Search in Files" feature is particularly irritating because it doesn't search components.
Also, the debug logs won't show the last few lines without jumping back up the list.
The "Search"  box overlays the horizontal scroll bar.
I'm currently hardcoding an input value into a vf page.
When testing, I want a different value.

<!-- Normal Run-->
<apex:input value="runtime" name="status"/>
<!-- Test-->
<apex:input value="testing" name="status"/>

Does a vf page have the equivalent of the apex isTest() function?

or is there another method of forcing a different value to be used during testing?
I'm using force.com IDE Eclipse to develop apex and Lightning components.
The test results shows a list of classes/components with their code coverage.
Ideally, selecting one shows the lines of code not covered.

However, sometimes I get the message "unable to find the apex source" and a number of dialogues pop up saying that.

What is the correct procedure to resolve this?

​Any pointers greatly appreciated.
I have a custom object for territories holding postcode and manager of that area.
I want to search for a postcode/zip match and update the page with the result.
I'm using a command button to initiate the search.
My search is returning the correct result but not refreshing the other fields.
I guess I'm not using rerender correctly but can't get it to work.
Please help.

I have a page that gets criteria including current location using javascript.
I then construct a url with parameters and launch another page using apex redirect to show a map - but it doesn't draw the map.
Yet, when I launch the page directly using the constructed URL, the map appears.
When sandbox laucnches it, a complex URL is displayed.
What is happenning and how can I remedy it?
I have festooned my code with console logs and system logs but can't see why it fails.
Please help.
I struggled to create a simple Lightning Component that I could add to an account page, so thought I'd share my result.
The presentation of the information isn't tidy yet...that's my next learning excercise!
This can also be used as an action via an action button on the page.
It was based on the article

Hope this helps others.

public with sharing class accountSummaryController {

    public static Account getAccount(Id accountId) {

Could someone explain the query syntax in
which uses
results = (List<Account>)[FIND :searchText RETURNING account(Name, billingpostalcode, Phone)][0];
For a start, I don't know what the [0] is doing.
Also, what are search criteria. It isn't returning every account I'd expect.

An alternative would be:
        results = [SELECT  Name, Phone, billingpostalcode FROM Account where name like :searchText];
although I'd add a '%' to the search text.

Hope someone can explain.
I've been trying to add the attendees as a related list on my custom controlled apex page but can't find a syntax that works.
I get errors like: "'EventRelations' is not a valid child relationship name for entity Event "

<apex:relatedList subject="{!anEvent}" list="EventRelations">
        <apex:facet name="header">Attendees</apex:facet>

where "anEvent" is my event record (public Event in controller) which succesfully returns all the fields of the event in a pageBlock.

​Any ideas?
I'm trying to "Build a mapping application for iPhone" following the instructions at
but, as far as I'm concerned, there are some missing instructions.
I'm new to this so, although it may seem obvious, I just don't know how to make it work.

There are two parts that don't make sense to me and I'd be grateful for any assistance.

I'm not sure what to do with the
"The following markup defines the iuivf page used as the template:"
Where do I save the code and as what?

Similarly, what do I do with
" Visualforce page that displays the phone number and rating of the account the user selected from the list view."
What do I call it? Is this the main page that is called to make this work?

Many thanks, Dave.

I'm having great difficulty assigning and testing account ids that I've created in a custom object.

I want to compare accounts
if (thisAc == thatAc){
} //endif

and tried
if (thisAc.id == thatAc.id){
​} //endif

My custom object has an account field: MyCustomObject__c has referenceCompany__c
I can't seem to copy it to another custom object - even a temporary Account

starting from MyCustomObject my1...

MyOtherCustomObject myOco = new(MyOtherCustomObject);
myOco.copiedCompany__c = my1.referenceCompany__c;

I've tried:
Account thisAc = .my1.referenceCompany__c;
Account thatAc= .my1.referenceCompany__r; (which seems close to the answer).

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I am trying to achieve the following:
I have accounts:
There is a custom object “Licence” consisting of:
Licence holder (an account e.g. RetailerY) with other licence details.
An account may have multiple licences.
I have a custom object “Retailer of” consisting of:
Manufacturer (account)
Retailer (account)
For example;
RetailerX is a retailer of ManufacturerA
RetailerY is a retailer of ManufacturerA
I want to report the licence data of retailers of a manufacturer.
Manufacturer: ManufacturerA:
               Retailer: RetailerX
                              Licence 001 …other details
   Licence 005 …other details
               Retailer: RetailerY
                              Licence 8097 …other details
                              Licence 8098 …other details
                              Licence 8099 …other details
                              Licence 8100 …other details

I have tried joined reports but haven't found a way to achieve it.
Please can anyone tell me how?
(I'm assuming I have structured the data in the only way possible using custom objects).

Does it require a VisualForce page?

Any suggestions and examples would be much appreciated.

The following code throws an exeption at the callout request
CALLOUT_REQUEST [35]|System.HttpRequest[Endpoint=http//:www.virtualworlds.co.uk/getParams.php, Method=POST]
and genearates the error,
"no protocol: http//:www.virtualworlds.co.uk/getParams.php".

I generate the list from custom objects and have verified that the list has entries.

Can you tell me what is wrong?

The "Search in Files" feature is particularly irritating because it doesn't search components.
Also, the debug logs won't show the last few lines without jumping back up the list.
The "Search"  box overlays the horizontal scroll bar.

Hey all, I have a flow that I am kicking off when an email message is recevied by the system.  When I try to debug since it's not working right, I cannot do so as I cannot for the life of me figure out how to pick an email in the system to test from!  This is the screen and what it's looking for.  What does it want here.  The ID of an icoming email preveiously recieved did not do the trick.  I'm having an issue with this flow not working and I really want to run in debug mode to figure out where it's stopping in the process!  I've searched google and can't find anything on how to pass this flow an email message!

Hi there,

I am gettinhg the following warning in my flow, where I have a send email action, which has a no reply email address as the sender address:

xxxxxx (Action) - Because the Automated Process User’s email address isn’t valid, this flow can’t send emails for actions or errors. On the Process Automation Settings page in Setup, the Automated Process User Email Address must specify an organization-wide email address for the system administrator profile.

The proccess automation settings and the organization-wide email addresses are already set up correctly, though.

Hello all,

We have orders with associated accounts being created as part of an integration with eCommerce and ERP.

It is essentially creating person accounts since these are consumers. Instead of enabling person accounts, I would like to create a new contact record using the data from the account where Account.Person__c = true (custom field created to designate consumer accounts). 

This would be an easy PB but I'm having trouble setting values with the name fields. Any shared experience on how to "reverse-concatenate" Account.Name into Contact first name & last name?

Thanks in advance

How do yo navigate to the Calendar tab or to the Event list in Salesforce Mobile? Do we use the force:navigateToComponent? or lightning:navigation?  Any example is greatly appreciated.
All examples that I have seen so far show how to add a custom button/action on Leads List View. I am looking for a way to launch a flow from a custom buttom/action from Account List View.

The Flow is to create account and related contact records and it needs to happen only through a flow, as the customer wants point and click customization.

User-added image

So far, I have only been able to launch the flow from within a record- by adding the action on the account page layout. However, my requirement is to launch the flow from the Account List View itself and not requiring the user to first have to select any other record. I have also tried creating a VF page to launch the flow from.

The issue that I am running into is

1- I do NOT see 'List View' as an option when I navigate to 'Search Layouts' on the Account Object and the 'Default Layout' does not have the custom button that I created

User-added image

Default Layout- supports only buttons that create or update a record

User-added image

2- I do see 'List View' listed when I navigate TO 'Search Layouts for Salesforce Classic' on the Account Object, however, the button to launch flow still does not show up under custom buttons and the only buttons that show up are related to either creating/updating a record. Also, I am sure if seeing the button to launch a flow under Search Layouts for Salesforce Classic would do me any good as I am working in Lightning

Direction on how to proceed ahead is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
As of Spring 20 release, we can again prepopulate field values using a URL - aka URL hacking (see release note here (https://releasenotes.docs.salesforce.com/en-us/spring20/release-notes/rn_general_lex_navigate_to_record_dfv.htm)).

I, for one, am so happy for this feature. However, there is one minor problem. When the URL is invoked, the new record modal pops up, and if the user chooses to Cancel, a blank page is displayed instead of returning to the page where the URL was called.

Below is the URL that I'm using. It is invoked with a custom list button located in a related list of an Opportunity.


I've tried including a retunURL parameter - in different places in the URL. But no luck.
Hello community,

We are experiencing an issue with a Lightning Component since the Spring 20 release.
This LC component contains a lightning:datatable on which we can perform actions on a specific row.
For that, on the controller side we use (as specified in official documentation) event.getParam('row'); to retrieve the selected row.
To make sure the issue is not related to my actual code, I recreated a very basic Lighning app with a LC that contains a ligthning:datatable.

When I launch an action from first row, I get "rowIndex is -1" instead of "rowIndex is 0".
When I launch an action from second row, I get "rowIndex is -1" instead of "rowIndex is 1".

To make sure the issue is related to Spring 20, I deployed this Lightning app to our Production org which is still in Winter 20 and I get successful results :
When I launch an action from first row, I get "rowIndex is 0" as expected
When I launch an action from second row, I get "rowIndex is 1" as expected

So I really believe this is a bug related to Spring 20 as we did not change our code at all and it was working perfectly in Winter 20 release.

I am wondering if anybody is expecting the same issue as us, and most importantly if anybody has a workaround for this.

Hello all,

I'm building my first flow, which is now in flow builder. My first major hurdle is that I can't seem to send a string to an apex action, query some records using that string as a soql criterion, then return the list. 

My Apex action looks like this:

global class Flow_ChecklistTemplateItemGetter{
	@invocableMethod(label = 'Get Template Items' description = 'gets all Checklist Template Items whose "Applies_To" field contains the provided machine model')
	global static List<Checklist_Template_Item__c> getRelevantTemplateItems(List<String> modelList){
		String searchModel;
		// this will only be a single value
		for(String s : modelList){
			searchModel = s;
		System.debug('SearchModel = '+searchModel);

		String queryString = 'Select Id, Checkbox_Options__c, Checklist_Template_Section__c, Objective__c, Required__c, Sort_Order__c From Checklist_Template_Item__c Where Applies_To__c Includes(:searchModel)';
		List<Checklist_Template_Item__c> itemList = Database.query(queryString);
	 	for(Checklist_Template_Item__c cti : itemList){
	 		System.debug('checklist template item = '+cti);
	 	return itemList;
"modelList" is only ever going to be a single value, which is why I assign it to its own string for querying. 

I get the error "The number of results does not match the number of interviews that were executed in a single bulk execution request". 
Well...no kidding. I don't want to only return one record just because I only had one string input. 

What I thought might be the reason was that my output variable was not a collection variable, but the collection variable I created in followup to that is un-selectable from my Apex action. 

I can only select variables that accept a single record. 
User-added image

Following query results in 17000+ records. How do I save this result to csv/excel file? I tried SDFC Dev Console Data Exporter  but is saves only about 1000 rows. 
    CreatedDate,Id, Owner.Name,Inquiry_Type__c,
(SELECT id FROM EmailMessages 
WHERE Incoming = true)
FROM Case WHERE Sales_Department__c='Sales' AND Response_Indicator__c=TRUE
Can anyone review the codes quickly and check why the component is not showing on the list of available components on the lightning app builder although it has force:appHostable? Thanks!

Is there a way to access public calendar and resources from APEX? 


Here is what I trying to do:


Given a event, I want to find the name of the public calendar and also find the name of the resource invited to the event. Event.OwnerId gives me the public calendar id. But, I not able to find the public calendar name. Likewise, I can query EventAttendee to find the AttendeeId, but I can't seem to find a way find to find the resource name.


Any thoughts / suggestions? Thanks a lot.

   First, i added some values to the List, and then I return the entire list to visualforce page, my problem is that i can not show specific value of element in the visualforce page but only can show all the elements together once. Anybody has this experience, welcome.


I know this is probably a silly question but I'm new to web programming and salesforce/apex/vf and I need to do this but cannot find a way.


I need to be able to simply print today's date on a page.  I've tried embedding some javascript in <script></script> tags and that does not seem to do anything at all.

I want to displqy events field on email template. so plz help me or suggest what can i do to print any of field may be standard or custom in email template

I use a controller to display a list of products with a checkbox against each product value . When the end user selects few products and clicks "add quantity" button it should navigate to another VF page in which i should display the selected products and an input filed for quantity. Quite similiar to the way of adding products in opportunity. In the code below im using a single controller for 2 VF pages. Problem i m facing here is when the second page is called the wrapperList becomes null instead of holding the values of the selected products. Please give me some suggestions.
