Communities Self Reg

Hello all,

I need to add a picklist field to the CommunitiesSelfReg VF page, but am getting the error below because I need to change it from inputext to inputfield, otherwise it won't show the drop-down menu.

"Could not resolve the entity from <apex:inputField> value binding '{!purchasedfrom}'.  <apex:inputField> can only be used with SObjects, or objects that are Visualforce field component resolvable."

VF Page:

Hello Ronaldo,

Good that class worked. :)
This is looking your Field-Level security is not visible for community profile for Purchased_From__c field. please try that page as internally run by /apex/<your page name>. If picklist show then need to provide Field-Level security.

Hi Ronaldo,
There is one an other approch to show picklist in the VF page. I am going to write some sample code for this.

Apex Class:
Public String airportCode     {get;set;}

public List<SelectOption> getAirport(){
      List<SelectOption> options = new List<SelectOption>();
      options.add(new SelectOption('--None--','--None--'));
      options.add(new SelectOption('India','India'));
      options.add(new SelectOption('Australia','Australia'));
      return options;
}

​VF Page:
<apex:selectList value="{!airportCode}" size="1">
        <apex:selectOptions value="{!Airport}"/>
</apex:selectList>

Please feel to contact us if there are any concerns and also mark as best answer if it helps you.

Hello!

See below please.

Product_Owner__c = text field, working fine
Purchased_From__c = picklist field, not working properly
Serial_Number__c = text field, working fine

The issue really is with the syntax I'm pretty sure.

The code below works fine, but this is a picklist field, not a text. However when I change tags from 'inputText' to 'inputField' I get so many errors.
<apex:outputLabel value="Purchased From" for="purchasedfrom"/>
<apex:inputText required="true" id="purchasedfrom" value="{!purchasedfrom}" label="Purchased From"/>


Thanks,

Hi Tejpal Kumawat,

Thanks very much for your suggestion!

I implemented your class and changed the inputField field to: value="{!u.Purchased_From__c}"

This is what I'm getting, I already made sure the Field-Level security is visible for all profiles. Any thoughts why this picklist field is not working on my communities self reg. VF Page?

Tejpal Kumawat,

This is becoming an interesting problem! I just made the tests and all custom fields are Visible (checked) under the User Field-Level Security for my Community User profile =O

Interesting enough, this is the result I got by using /apex/communitiesselfreg

It is show the picklist field!

Now what other checks do I need to make in order for a inputField to display externally via the Self Register portal? I did several google researchs and found nothing, I even added all classes and VF pages to this profile and it did not work.

Nevermind my friend, I got the error!

I went to Manage Communities, Advanced Customizations, Site Details for Customer Support and edited permissions there!

All fields were not visible for this site permissions! All solved now, thanks for all the help.

Hi Ronaldo,

I know this is a old post. I'm also facing the same issue. Phone and Company name fields are not displayed in the VF page even though those fields are checked under Field level security.

Can you help me to find the steps you mentioned(I went to Manage Communities, Advanced Customizations, Site Details for Customer Support and edited permissions there!)

Thanks!
