Error generating Quote PDF from JS button

I have created a List JS button in Opportunity Page > Quote Related List to generate Quote PDF for the selected Quote record. I get PdfOverlay undefined and after that a message is displayed "Cannot read Property 'dialog' of undefined. Below is my code:-

{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/14.0/connection.js")} 
{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/14.0/apex.js")}

records = {!GETRECORDIDS($ObjectType.Quote)};
alert('records > ' + records);
var selectedRecords = [records];
alert('selectedRecords>' + selectedRecords);


var pdfOverlay = QuotePDFPreview.quotePDFObjs['quotePDFOverlay'];

alert('pdfOverlay > ' + pdfOverlay);

pdfOverlay.dialog.buttonContents = '<input value=\"Save to Quote\"  class=\"btn\" name=\"save\" onclick=\"QuotePDFPreview.getQuotePDFObject(\'quotePDFOverlay\').savePDF(\'0\',\'0\');\" title=\"Save to Quote\" type=\"button\" /><input value=\"Save and Email Quote\"  class=\"btn\" name=\"saveAndEmail\" onclick=\"QuotePDFPreview.getQuotePDFObject(\'quotePDFOverlay\').savePDF(\'1\');\" title=\"Save and Email Quote\" type=\"button\" /><input value=\"Cancel\"  class=\"btn\" name=\"cancel\" onclick=\"QuotePDFPreview.getQuotePDFObject(\'quotePDFOverlay\').close();\" title=\"Cancel\" type=\"button\" />';



 //change this to use the correct template for your business/environment!! 
pdfOverlay.summlid = '0EH90000000Gdtu'; 

 pdfOverlay.setSavable(true); 

 //change this to use the quote id 
pdfOverlay.setContents('/quote/quoteTemplateDataViewer.apexp?id={!Quote.Id}','quote/quoteTemplateHeaderData.apexp?id={!Quote.Id}'); 

 pdfOverlay.display();

Kindly suggest some soln.

This suggests that the QuotePDFPreview.quotePDFObjs array is empty. Where does this array get set up in your page? You may be able to output a text representation of the QuotePDFPreview object using the JSON.stringify method.

You are using too many ( / )

Just copy this and it should work.

var pdfOverlay = QuotePDFPreview.quotePDFObjs['quotePDFOverlay']; 
pdfOverlay.dialog.buttonContents = '<input value=\"Save to Quote\" class="btn" name="save" onclick="QuotePDFPreview.getQuotePDFObject(\'quotePDFOverlay\').savePDF(\'0\',\'0\');" title="Save to Quote" type="button" /><input value="Save and Email Quote" class="btn" name="saveAndEmail" onclick="QuotePDFPreview.getQuotePDFObject(\'quotePDFOverlay\').savePDF(\'1\');" title="Save and Email Quote" type="button" /><input value="Cancel" class="btn" name="cancel" onclick="QuotePDFPreview.getQuotePDFObject(\'quotePDFOverlay\').close();" title="Cancel" type="button"/>'; 
pdfOverlay.summlid = 'Your Template ID Here'; 
pdfOverlay.setSavable(true); 
pdfOverlay.setContents('/quote/quoteTemplateDataViewer.apexp?id={!Quote.Id}','quote/quoteTemplateHeaderData.apexp?id={!Quote.Id}'); 
pdfOverlay.display();

Hello can you give me an example with what value can I use in Quote.Id
pdfOverlay.setContents('/quote/quoteTemplateDataViewer.apexp?id={!Quote.Id}

This would be the id of a quote record. If you navigate to a quote record, you can find the id at the end of the URL, so in the following URL:

https://kabtutorial-developer-edition.my.salesforce.com/0Q080000000H74E

the quote id is : 0Q080000000H74E

Hello Bob, 

If use a hard coded Quote.Id I suppose that it will not work for all the other Quotes.
I need to create a custom button which is using a predefined template.

see below the code that I used from this post.

but I got the following error:
User-added image


by the way did you manage to replicate this custom button on your sandbox?

Thanks in advance
Dimitri

I'm trying to use this same type of code for selecting a quote template, and I am receiving similiar error. Was this ever resolved on your end?
