Hi,

I read the help of SF but I didn't find the answer of my problem :(

 

<apex:page renderAs="pdf" standardController="opportunity"> <html><head>            {!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true',{!opportunity.custom2__c})}

{!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true',<apex:outputText value="{!opportunity.custom2__c}"/>)}

{!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true',<apex:outputText value="'"/>)}

{!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true',<br/>)}

</head>


<body>
</body>

</html>
</apex:page>

 

all 4 IF doesn't work,

2nd ,3th and 4th I get syntax error.  ""<""

1st I get syntax error

 

I have to create a custom pdf with custom phrases by checking the value of "opportunity.custom1__c"

perfect, this works properly for line break

Now I try to substitute '<br/>' with ''' and I get "EL Expression Unbalanced"

{!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true', opportunity.custom2__c)}

<apex:outputText value="{!if(isblank(opportunity.name),'true','opportunity.name')}" />

 

 

I don't think we can use <> tags in IF condition so I have changed your code a bit so you can have some direction how you can solve your problem. Hope this will help you.

Change it like this

 

<apex:page renderAs="pdf" standardController="opportunity"> <html><head>            {!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true', opportunity.custom2__c)}

{!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true', opportunity.custom2__c)}

{!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true','\'')}

{!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true','<br/>')}

</head>


<body>
</body>

</html>
</apex:page>

Sorry I missed the two :

 

 

<apex:outputText value="{!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true', '\'' )}" />
{!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true','<br/>')}

 

 

Hope this will help.

with your code I have the output:

\' and <br/>

 

I don't want this, but I want only ' and line break because is an html page...

Try this

 

 

<apex:outputLabel escape="false" value="{!if(isblank(opportunity.custom1__c),'true','<br/>')}"/>

1st and 2nd works properly but the 3rd and 4th give me this output:  \' <br/>.

for <br> is ok

 

the last problem is how to write this in if condition:

<apex:outputLabel value="'"/>

Ankit AroraAnkit Arora

I don't think we can write this is If condition on page. Rather you can do this :

 

<apex:outputLabel escape="false" value="if(!Condition,IF_TRUE,IF_FALSE)}"/>
