How to use visualforce page in read-only mode (removing the dev-part from it)

I have a visualforce page..
I want to reference the page in the read-only mode or normal mode without the dev part associated with it?

Could anyone help on this?

Thanks,
Manickkam.

It sounds like you have Development Mode enabled, and that you want to disable it?

Go to Setup/My Personal Information/Personal Information and then click Edit. There you'll find the Development Mode checkbox.

Not really..
I have a visualforce page created by me. I want it to be a pop-up window.
Say., the page is /apex/testPage. If I give widow.open('apex/testPage'), the visualforce page is opened in the devmode.

Having the development mode enabled, is there any way to open the page in non-development mode?
Also, how to reference a apex page. (To rephrase, how to use the apex page?)

There is a button called 'Where is this used?' in the Pages. I am not able to find a way to use the apex page. When I use window.open as said above, it doesn't come under the 'Where is this used?' link?

Can anyone help on this?

Thanks,
Manickkam.

Hi

You can use the page in all sorts of ways. For example, if you go to Setup/Create/Tabs you can make a Visualforce the source for a new tab in your application.

You can also reference it from within Apex, for example, from within a controller. So for example you can have a Visualforce page have a button, which if you push it, it makes a call to the controller which does some processing and then forwards the user to a different Visualforce page.

See the newOpportunityController class in the Visualforce documentation for an example of this.

Hope this helps!
