Cannot find my VF Page to override in the list of pages.

I have created a new page and then i m try to override my account tab by navigating to:

Customize | Accounts | Buttons & Links | Standard Buttons & Links | Edit Accounts Tab | Override With | Visual Force Page

 

I cannot see my newly created page here.

However i see it in :

Setup | Develop | Pages.

 

Please help if i am missing anything.

Thanks

Hi,

 

Have you specified a standard controller for that VF page with the same object?

Hey make sure your page is a standardcontroller="Account"

 

if it is not defined as above , you will not find the page in the overide list of vf pages.

Here is my VF Page standardAcctPage i still cannot find this in my overide page:

 

<apex:page standardController="Account"
           extensions="overrideCon"
           action="{!redirect}">
  <apex:detail />
</apex:page>

Hi,

 

When overriding tabs with a Visualforce page, only Visualforce pages that use the standard list controller for that tab, pages with a custom controller, or pages with no controller can be selected.

 

So in this case, you need to remove standardController from <apex:page> tag and make your extension as controller.

Thanks for your quick reply Devendra.

I have tried this but it asks me to create a new controller, please let me know if you have any suggestions.:

 

<apex:page controller="Account"
extensions="overrideCon"
action="{!redirect}">
<apex:detail />
</apex:page>

 

Thanks

Try this,

 

<apex:page controller="overrideCon" action="{!redirect}">
<apex:detail />
</apex:page>

 

public class overrideCon{
    // constructor
public overrideCon(){

} }

Wow, this hasn't been solved yet?  Anyways, you need a recordSetVar="" accounts in the apex:page tag.  That's all your missing.  Here's some more color on it: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.pages.meta/pages/pages_controller_sosc_overrides.htm
