Opportunity Owner Name in Visual Force page

Dear All,

 

I am overriding the opportunity creation page for a particular record type using a visual force page. I would like to show the opportunity owner name in the visual force page as the standard page does. Please help me to find out the way to get the user detail who creates the opportunity.

 

Thanks

Manoj

Hi schreurs_jd,

 

Your code sounds good. But I have some business logic based on the user details. I found the way to get the user id. In my constructor I just add a code ,

 

public String u {get; set;}

 

u = Userinfo.getUserId();

 

 

Thanks

Manoj

This is a really basic example, but should get you started.

 

<apex:page standardController="Opportunity">
{!opportunity.owner.Name}
</apex:page>

When creating a record the owner is not set yet, unless you have also a custom controller and you set it manually. When it's only a create page and not an edit page, you can fool the system like below. I just user the merge fields for the current user, and append the correct td classes to make sure layout is maintained correctly. See also http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/pages/Content/pages_variables_global.htm

 

<apex:page title="New opportunity" standardController="Opportunity">
    <h1>Opportunity create page</h1>
    <apex:form>
        <apex:pageBlock title="New opportunity">
            <apex:pageblockSection id="basicdetails" title="Basic details" columns="1">
                <tr><td class="labelCol first ">Opportunity Owner</td>
                    <td class="dataCol  first ">{!$User.FirstName} {!$User.LastName}</td> 
                </tr>
        
                <apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity.Name}" required="true"/>
                <apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity.CloseDate}" required="true"/>
                <apex:inputField value="{!Opportunity.StageName}" required="true"/>
    
                <apex:commandButton action="{!save}"   value="Save"/>
                <apex:commandButton action="{!cancel}"   value="Cancel"/>
                </apex:pageblockSection>
        </apex:pageBlock>
    </apex:form>
</apex:page>

Hi Manoj,

Great that you got it working :) I was thinking while I was eating that my code is not perfect, since there is no support for multiple languages... Just out of curiosity, since i just started learning VF, can you also show me the VF page code you use to display the opportunity owner in your final solution?

Thanks, Jan-Dirk
