Standard Controller used VF page for Custom Object?
I am trying to understand standard controllers vs. custom--and how they can be used with Custom Objects?
Most of the code samples I have found all use the standard Account or Contact as the example like...
<apex:page standardController="Account" showHeader="true" tabStyle="Account" >
I have several Custom Objects that I have created---and have trying to create a simple Tabbed view of the object detail and related lists instead of the typical list view--using VF.
I am just starting on VF...
>Do standard controllers get 'auto-created' for each custom object?--assume so and thats how the display using standard SF look?
> When I try starting my VF page to be used on my Custom Object with...
<apex:page standardController="ThenameIusedtocreatetheobject_c" showHeader="true" tabStyle="ThenameIusedtocreatetheobject_c"" >
I get errors - ThenameIusedtocreatetheobject_c Does not Exist, etc.
What am I missing about standard controllers on custom objects? Do all custom objects require a custom controller to be coded?
Thanks for the assistance...
