Custom Object insert form Submit event customization.

Hello there!!

I have a custom object named "CustomObject" I have created its fields and relationships and set its layout. I want to call REST webservice before inserting the object depending on the webservice response so can I override the default submit mechanism ???

If you need to override the default save button functionality you need to override the new button with visual force page where you need to keep your code of rest service check the response in the controller extension and insert it accordingly.

I have created visual force page but when i went to the option where we need to select visual force page. My none of the visual force page appears there in the dropdrown .

You need to use standard controller attribute in you apex:page tag. Take time please go through each and every step in the doc

Actually i am working on custom object so there is no standard controller defined or I have to look for it.
sharathchandra thukkanisharathchandra thukkani
all the standard and custom object will have the standard controller. Standaed controller is a in build system class which will be created automatically when you create the object.

standard object/custom object standard controller will be the API name of the object. You should go through the visual force developer guide to get more information.

@sharathchandra I did exactly the same but still I am unable to get any visual force page option in dropdown.
