Save Button in Visualforce Page Issue

I have this Save Button code.

<apex:pageBlockButtons >
        <apex:commandLink value="Save" action="{!save}" id="savebutton" styleClass="btn" style="text-decoration:none;padding:4px;"></apex:commandlink>
        </apex:pageBlockButtons>

I have a lot of issues and bugs on "Saving" data in my visualforce page.  And was wondering if you guys can shed some light on how to fix it.  It's been bugging me and becoming a show stopper in my development.

Problems when pressing "Save"
Problem 1 - If I enter data in a text field and press "Save", it reloads but doesnt save the data.  But when I enter data in a text field AND click out and save... it saves it.  I cant have that.  I'm getting complaints on that.  Especially when they keep entering data then just presses save and it doesnt save the last data get really annoying.  

Problem 2 - when putting Target="_self" it saves it inside that iFrame.  If I do Target="_parent" it saves it but just showing the VF Page and I lose my headers, search, etc...  I just want to press save and stay in the SAME tab.  Instead, it reloads in the first tab and you get more mad when you click on the tab you want and the data doesnt save.

I just want to save the data and refresh in the same tab.  Thats all I need.  Please help

Hi Jon,

Problem 1: 

For inputField tag value is required and it will automatically bind into that object's field.
For inputText tag value is not required and it may not bind into the object's field.

Problem 2:

To return to the same page, you can reset the object and return null from the save method.

If you are expecting more detailed explanation, please paste your VF and controller here and can explain in more detailed.

Please do let me know if it helps you.

Regards,
Mahesh

Hi Jon,

Please check the below sample code.

Visualforce Page
<apex:page standardController="lead" extensions="leds" showHeader="false">
  <apex:form >
  <apex:pageBlock >
  <apex:pageBlockSection >
  <apex:inputField value="{!lead.Lastname}"/>
  <apex:inputField value="{!lead.Email}"/>
  <apex:inputField value="{!lead.company}"/>
  </apex:pageBlockSection>
  <apex:pageBlockButtons location="bottom">
 <apex:commandButton value="save" action="{!save}"/>
  </apex:pageBlockButtons>
  </apex:pageBlock>
  </apex:form>
  </apex:page>

Controller
 
public with sharing class leds {
public lead s;
public leds(){}
    public leds(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {
  s = (lead)Controller.getRecord();
    }
public pagereference  save(){
   
   
            insert s;
        
        
          
          PageReference pr=new PageReference(('https://ap1.salesforce.com/'+s.Id));
      return pr;
  
}
}

Hi Jon,

In the save() method you can redirect to the same page after completion of your save operation.
 
public PageReference save() {
        //-----Your save operations.
        PageReference page = new PageReference( '/apex/UrVFPage');
        page.setRedirect(true);
        
        return page;
}

Please do let me know if it helps you.

Regards,
Mahesh

which line do I insert that?
uHaveOptionsuHaveOptions
I guess I have to insert that in the extension?
Mahesh DMahesh D
Please paste your Controller, so that I can explain you better.

Also paste first line of your VF page.

Update...  Sorry I put the wrong controller...
 
public class PropertyExtensionController{
    Property__c property;
    
    public PropertyExtensionController(ApexPages.StandardController controller)
    {
        property = (Property__c)controller.getRecord();
    }
    
    public PageReference save()
    {
        update property;
        return null;
    }
}

Hi Jon,

Please find the below code:
 
public class PropertyExtensionController{
    Property__c property;
    
    public PropertyExtensionController(ApexPages.StandardController controller)
    {
        property = (Property__c)controller.getRecord();
    }
    
    public PageReference save()
    {
        update property;
        PageReference page = new PageReference( '/apex/UrVFPage?Id='+property.Id);
        page.setRedirect(true);
        
        return page;
    }
}

Here replace "UrVFPage" this with your VF Page Name.

Please do let me know if it helps you.

Regards,
Mahesh

That didnt work.  It reloaded back to the first tab.  It didnt reload to the tab I was working on.
uHaveOptionsuHaveOptions

This was my controller

public class PropertyExtensionController{
    Property__c property;
    
    public PropertyExtensionController(ApexPages.StandardController controller)
    {
        property = (Property__c)controller.getRecord();
    }
    
    public PageReference save()
    {
        update property;
        PageReference page = new PageReference( '/apex/PropertyTestTabs?Id='+property.Id);
        page.setRedirect(true);
        
        return page;
    }
}

Hi Jon,

Then better to use the old code for save() method.

Onething I identified here is, in the VF page you shouldn't use 

Property__c.                   --- This is the object name

it should be

property.                        ----  This is the member variable in your controller.

Always use the member variable and your second problem of saving will be resolved.

Take a backup of your current VF page and replace and replace Property__c with property in the whole VF page.

Please do let me know if it helps you.

Regards,
Mahesh

That didnt work also.  It gave me an object error.  Let me try to figure it out.
uHaveOptionsuHaveOptions
This is weird....  Solution 1 works on Custom Objects but not STANDARD Objects.  any reason why?
Mahesh DMahesh D
Hi Jon,

Here you also need to change the Constructor, I am not sure whether you changed it or not.
 
public PropertyExtensionController(ApexPages.StandardController controller)  {
        property = (Property__c)controller.getRecord();
        property = [Select Id, Name,........... from Property__c where Id =: property.Id];
 }

Please paste the latest after this modification along with actual error message.

Regards,
Mahesh
