Hi,
I have a class that is grabs Opportunities, places them into a csv file, and then sends an email to a particular email address. 

There is a Opportunity.CustomField1 which is a text field that can is populated as such:
  • Test, Test, Test,
  • Test; Test; Test;
Because I am creating csv file the string cannot have a comma in it other it throws off the csv file.

I tried doing this but failed

String x = Op.CustomField1;
x.replaceAll(',', ';');

Essentially when the CustomField1 has semicolon (;) character everything works fine, but when there is a comma (,) to separate the values, then the CSV file is messed up because the columns are not aligned properly.

How can I use x.replaceAll() to replace all commas with a semicolon in the customField1?

Hey guys, 

I have to work on the following project: 

An external button calls a REST Webservice and sends an ID. This ID is the trail to the user which called the button. Now I need to generate a .pdf with the user information. This .pdf then needs to be send to three different e-mail addresses, of which one has a different body. All of this needs to be done programmatically, so that the user only presses a button, and the rest is done automatically.

 

I found a huge documentation about REST Webservice, so I don't need a start here. But I can't find a documentation on how to generate a .pdf all by code and send this via email. All I could find is .pdf in combination with a visualforce page. Does someone have a nice tutorial on generating a .pdf by code only and sending it via mail? 

Thanks in advance!

I am going to schedule a job in our production env.
What it does is to assign opportunity owner to current owner's manager if the Opportunity has no activities for the past 5 days.

Since it is production env, our product manager will change my profile to a admin to run the job. After I set the shedule job, my profile will become devopler which does not have much access and basically not able to change Opportunity Owner.

My question is, when scheduled job runs everyday, does it still based on my current profile? Or it does not matter what my profile is.
 

This is my code:-

public class DispatcherContactNewController {

    public DispatcherContactNewController(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {
        this.controller = controller;
    }
   
    public PageReference Redir() {

        PageReference newPage;
        PageReference standardpage = New PageReference('/00Q/e?retURL=%2F00Q%2Fo&RecordType=012900000011wvV&ent=Lead&nooverride=1');
        
        RecordType r;
        r = [Select developerName from RecordType Where SobjectType='Lead' And id = :ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('RecordType')];
        
        if ( r.developerName == 'LeadVisualforcePage') {
        
        System.debug('----------------------------------------------------------------------');
        
            newPage = Page.leadtask;
            
            return newPage;
        } else {
        
         System.debug('**********************************************************************');
         
         return standardpage;
        }

    }

    private final ApexPages.StandardController controller;
}

Hi Guys,

Forgive me if I'm missing the blatantly obvious here, I'm still relatively new. I would like to have the validation rule below apply only when the field is not blank, I've been having trouble constructing the right syntax to achieve this.

NOT(BEGINS(Phone,"00")) || NOT(ISNUMBER(Phone)) || CONTAINS(Phone,".")

Any help is much appreciated

Thanks

Hi All,

I am looking to implement a custom button which will be visible on the detail page of an object - let's say the Contacts object. When this button is pressed, I want to have data go from the Contacts record through a RESTful web service call and have a unique value returned. The user would not be redirected to a new page and the returned value would be used in setting a custom field on the Contacts screen.

Is something like this possible or do I have to create a middle VisualForce layer which will take information from a referenced Contact ID, pass data along through the web service, set and save the returned value, and then redirect the user back to the referenced Contact ID?

Ideally I would like this process to work no matter the Salesforce object if at all possible.

Thanks,
-Michael
I have a custom object with a lookup field (to another custom object) called Listing and a formula field that returns text.  

I thought that both of these were searchable fields, but they do not appear to be.  Is that correct?
Hello,

I would like to write an Apex Trigger on the Task Object that will populate a date field on the Account Object with the Created Date of the Last Activity With a Status of Completed and a Subject of Completed Call.

Anyone have any ideas on how to approach this.

Hi guys can you please help me to write a Trigger to Auto create child Record when new parent record is created 
I have custom Object as Order__c and I have it's child Object asTax Details__c. I have a lookup field of Account and Country__c Picklist Custom Field on Tax Details Object . So I want whenever a new Order is created then a new Tax Details record should be created with Order Number, Account Name and Country. Order Number will be Parent Account (Order_c) number, Account Name will be same as Account Name on Order__c (Lookup of Account on Order__c Object) and Country should be same as we have Country on Order__c Object.
Thanks in advance

I have an Apex Trigger listed below, I need to change where it says Subject = 'Email Sent' or Subject = 'Email Received' to be Subject Contains Email, but I can seem to get it to work properly.
 
trigger SumEmailActivitesOnAccount on Task (after insert, after update, after delete) {

    set<Id> set_Id = new set<Id>();
   
    List<Account>acc_list = new List<Account>();
    
    if(Trigger.isInsert || Trigger.isUpdate) {
        for(Task T:Trigger.new){
            set_Id.add(T.WhatId);
        }

     }
    else if(Trigger.isDelete){
        for(Task T:Trigger.old){
            set_Id.add(T.WhatId);
        }

     }
     
    if(Trigger.isAfter && (Trigger.isUpdate || Trigger.isInsert || Trigger.isDelete)){
        acc_list=[SELECT Id, Sum_Email_Activities__c, (SELECT Id FROM Tasks WHERE Status = 'Completed' AND (Subject = 'Email Sent' or Subject = 'Email Received')) FROM Account WHERE Id IN :set_Id];

     for(Account acc: acc_list){
        if(acc.Tasks.size()>0)
            acc.Sum_Email_Activities__c = acc.Tasks.size();
        else
            acc.Sum_Email_Activities__c = 0;
     }
        if(!acc_list.isEmpty())
            update acc_list;
        }

}

 
Okay so I have a Trigger that fires after insert of Task. The Trigger works perfectly, I wrote the following Test Class and I'm only getting 75% code Coverage and I need more than that because my org average is only at 57%. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 
@isTest

public class TestTaskCreationAccount {

    static testMethod void insertNewTask() {
    
        Task taskToCreate = new Task();
        
        taskToCreate.OwnerId = '005i0000004N77x';
        taskToCreate.Subject = 'Attempted Call';
        taskToCreate.Status = 'Completed';
        
        insert taskToCreate;
        
        taskToCreate = [SELECT Status From Task WHERE Id =:taskToCreate.Id];
        System.debug('Status after trigger fired: ' + taskToCreate.Status);

Hello,

I wrote a Class to use in my test Classes.  The purpose of this class is to create varius records that I can reference in test classes.  However, when I try to deploy it to production, it shows as 0% coverage and will not let me deploy.  Is there a way I can exclude this class from the code coverage calculation?

Class:
public class TestCreateRecords {

// create and insert a new Account record.
    public static Account createAcct(Integer i){
        Profile ProSys = [SELECT Id
                          FROM Profile
                          WHERE Name='Client Services (Admin)'];
        User U1 = new User(Alias = 'User1',Country='United States',Email='User1@testing.com',EmailEncodingKey='ISO-8859-1', LastName='User1', 
                            LanguageLocaleKey='en_US',LocaleSidKey='en_US',ProfileId = ProSys.Id,TimeZoneSidKey='America/New_York', UserName='User1@testing.com');

We have a simple trigger that updates a checkbox on all child records when parent opp is edited.  I'm trying to switch the behavior to updating a date/time field.

Its quite easy to update the code, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to pass Now() to the system.assert in the test class.

For the code, I changed

  for (Engagement_Role__c er : engagementRolesToUpdate) {
            er.ER_Updated__c = TRUE;
to:
  for (Engagement_Role__c er : engagementRolesToUpdate) {
            er.ER_Update_DateTime__c = system.Now();

In the test class, what I want is something like: 
System.assertEquals(0, [select count() from Engagement_Role__c where  Opportunity__c in :opps and ER_Update_DateTime = system.Now() ]);

That does not work, gives the following error:
Error: Compile Error: expecting a colon, found 'System.Now' at line 47 column 127    

I tried declaring a variable and using that instead:

DateTime testNow = system.Now();
System.assertEquals(0, [select count() from Engagement_Role__c where  Opportunity__c in :opps and ER_Update_DateTime = testNow ]);

And I get an error:   Compile Error: expecting a colon, found 'testNow' at line 49 column 127    

I am not a developer in any meaningful way, just hacking on our code, being dangerous, and very tired to boot.  
Greatly appreciate any pointers as to what i'm missing here.

Thanks as always.
Hello!

I am trying to set an field on the opportunity line items based when a field on the parent gets updated.  However I am running into some issues, and was wondering if anyone can show me where my fall out is?
 
trigger TaxUpdate on Opportunity(after update) {
        // 1

        List<OpportunityLineItem> childRecords = [Select Id, OpportunityId,Name,LineTax__c FROM OpportunityLineItem WHERE OpportunityId IN: Trigger.newMap.keySet()];
         

        // 2

        for(OpportunityLineItem child :childRecords){

            // 3

            if(trigger.isInsert && Opportunity__r.Tax__c != NULL && !child.Name.contains(eN-PRO,Shipping,Training-Adult,AP-WTY-DTLL2,AP-WTY-FRX2)){

                child.LineTax__c = 'Tax';

            }

            // 4

            else if(trigger.isUpdate && child.LineTax__c == Null && trigger.NewMap.get(child.OpportunityId).Tax__c != trigger.OldMap.get(child.OpportunityId).Tax__c){

                child.LineTax__c = 'Tax';

            }

        }

         

        // 5

        if(childRecords.size() > 0)

            update childRecords;

}

 
Dear all, this may be really simple but I`m not able to figure it out. I have two Number fields "Agents__c" and "stations__c". I want formula field (# of TRE) which will help me to evaluate that if Agent__C is Blank, it will multiply the amount stations__c * 0.55. Similarly, if stations__c is Blank, it will multiply amount Agent__C * 0.55. If both are blank, it should be zero. Can someone please help me with appropriate formula?

I tried below formulas but it does not work. Formula works well on Agent__c but if Agent__c is Blank, and stations__c has value, it does not work

BLANKVALUE(BLANKVALUE(Agent__c, Section__c), 0) * 0.55


IF( NOT(ISBLANK(Agent__c)), Agent__c, IF( NOT(ISBLANK(Station__c)), Station__c, 0 ) ) * 0.55

 
I'm trying to create a test class that is going to create a new "Assigned_BDM__c" and I keep getting this error: Compile Error: Illegal assignment from String to Date at line 12 column 5.

Here is my test class:
 
@isTest

public class TestActiveBDMsTriggerOnInsert {

    static testMethod void insertNewBDM() {
    
    Assigned_BDM__c bdmToCreate = new Assigned_BDM__c();
    
    bdmToCreate.BDM_Assigned1__c = 'a0Ki0000009XKgM';
    bdmToCreate.CampaignX__c = 'a0Ei000000Y24Jh';
    bdmToCreate.Account_Name__c = '001i000000box1d';
    bdmToCreate.Start_Date__c = '1/28/2015';
    
    insert bdmToCreate;
    
    }
    
}

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello,

I am trying to write an apex trigger that updates the Probability field of my Opportunity object whenever I change the probability field of a custom object 'QQ'. My Opportunity and QQ have a master-detail relationship.
  
I am new to apex triggers, though intuitively I would write something like this:

trigger TestUpdateProbability on Opportunity (before insert, before update) {
        for(Opportunity p : Trigger.new) {
                p.Probability = p.QQ__r.Total__c;
        }
}

This doesn't seem to be working.
I can't use a workflow either, because the Probability field in an Opportunity object is set according to the Stage field. 
I would like to change the Opportunity probability based on my custom QQ's probability, though that is difficult since each stage is associated with only one preset Probability percentage.

Does anyone know how to get around this? Thanks.

Dear Devs.,

   Have any one tried to alter/change the style of a bottom side bar in a service console?  

Right now, the borders of side bars were not bright enough to distinguish where detail of record end and sidebar begin particularly in case of bottom sidebar. So, just checking if anyone felt the same and tried to change/apply new style.

 I cant find any method in integration.js for service console to accomplish this as we do for a  tab style !

Please suggest if there is a way to overcome this!

 I would like to know if there's a way to send a POST (or GET) HTTP request to a certain URL while a customer is created or updated in the Salesforce CRM.
I need to get the new customer's details, and create an account in a different system with those details, right after the user is created / updated in Salesforce. I want to do that by creating a PHP application that will get a POST request from Salesforce, and send an API request with the customer's details to the API of a different systemi.e. on every trigger of update / creation of a customer, Salesforce will send a POST request to a predefined URL
I saw that there's an option to use streaming API in Salesforce, but I couldn't find an option to send a POST / GET request with the customer's details right after creating / updating a customer in the Salesforce CRM.
It's also possible for us to only get the customer's ID, and our application will retrieve the rest of the customer's details by an API call to Salesforce.
Your help is appreciated.
 
 
Our Contact object New button is overridden to display a custom VF page with added functionality. However, some profiles do not have access to this functionality and should see the standard page. The VF page has functionality on it that we have to pay to use, so we do not want all users having access. 

Can someone please advise if I can remove access to the override classes/VF pages for all users and then assigned to specific users via a Permission Set? If not, what would be the best way to accomplish what we are trying to do? Thanks!
We have a series of email services that need to run specific logic that cannot be supplied in email to case. 
The process looks up the toAddresses and/or ccAddresses and runs specific logic depending on the outside party and the inbound email address. 
The system works great with one exception.

If an outside party BCC's the email the inbound email handler does not appear to have available similar to toAddresses or ccAddresses. 

This is a low % of inbound emails but I'd rather have 100% than 99.9x%. 

Since BCC are "B" my thought was to look to look for the inbound email service being used rather than actual values in the toAddress or ccAddress. Unfortunately I don't see an ability to get that from the InboundEmail class either. 

Anybody done something similar? 
Any ideas are welcome...

Hi,
We added a custom object called Analytics Group under Account.  It is a list and I created one object manually under one account

When I run this query:
"SELECT id, name, Sage_ID__c,FCA_Number__c, Owner.Name,(SELECT Group_ID__c,Account_Limit__c,Concurrent_Limit__c,Display_Name__c,Expiry_Date__c,Notes__c,Version_Name__c,Version_ID__c FROM Analytics_Groups__r) FROM Account where id=xxxx"

I can see that the account does have one Analytics_Groups__r returned. But it is returned as a QueryResult, with two Fields "FieldsToNull" and "ID", and both fields are null. I asked those fields: Group_ID__c,Account_Limit__c,Concurrent_Limit__c,Display_Name__c,Expiry_Date__c,Notes__c,Version_Name__c,Version_ID__c
but none of them seem to be returned (or maybe I just don't know where to retrieve them)?

Can someone help?

Hey guys, 

I have to work on the following project: 

An external button calls a REST Webservice and sends an ID. This ID is the trail to the user which called the button. Now I need to generate a .pdf with the user information. This .pdf then needs to be send to three different e-mail addresses, of which one has a different body. All of this needs to be done programmatically, so that the user only presses a button, and the rest is done automatically.

 

I found a huge documentation about REST Webservice, so I don't need a start here. But I can't find a documentation on how to generate a .pdf all by code and send this via email. All I could find is .pdf in combination with a visualforce page. Does someone have a nice tutorial on generating a .pdf by code only and sending it via mail? 

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,
We at UNICEF require a little help with the creation of a Trigger and related TestClass for the following scenario:

We have a custom object called Due Diligence (Due_Diligence__c).
This is an object that has a MasterDetail relation to Account.
 
Due Diligence records are managed by researchers and the process ends with a DD Outcome assigned to the Due Diligence Record (PickList field called: DD_Phase_1_Outcome__c) at the DD record level.
The record is then put through a standard Approval Process.
 
We would like that at the Approval, when DD record is approved the approval process updates a field on the Due Diligence record called DD Record Status (Approval_status__c) with a status of “Phase 1 Review Completed”, the DD record then updates the Account in the relevant field in the Account record (DD_Outcome_Phase_1__c) with the outcome coming from the DD Records.
 
We would also want to pass the Approval Date also from the DD Record to the Account record.

Currently we are handling that via a series of Workflow but we only have the ability to update the Account record after 1 hour (we are using Time Based Field Updates) 
Thanks,

I am going to schedule a job in our production env.
What it does is to assign opportunity owner to current owner's manager if the Opportunity has no activities for the past 5 days.

Since it is production env, our product manager will change my profile to a admin to run the job. After I set the shedule job, my profile will become devopler which does not have much access and basically not able to change Opportunity Owner.

My question is, when scheduled job runs everyday, does it still based on my current profile? Or it does not matter what my profile is.
 

This is my code:-

public class DispatcherContactNewController {

    public DispatcherContactNewController(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {
        this.controller = controller;
    }
   
    public PageReference Redir() {

        PageReference newPage;
        PageReference standardpage = New PageReference('/00Q/e?retURL=%2F00Q%2Fo&RecordType=012900000011wvV&ent=Lead&nooverride=1');
        
        RecordType r;
        r = [Select developerName from RecordType Where SobjectType='Lead' And id = :ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('RecordType')];
        
        if ( r.developerName == 'LeadVisualforcePage') {
        
        System.debug('----------------------------------------------------------------------');
        
            newPage = Page.leadtask;
            
            return newPage;
        } else {
        
         System.debug('**********************************************************************');
         
         return standardpage;
        }

    }

    private final ApexPages.StandardController controller;
}

Hi guys,
i want to share with you a solution I come up with, to wrap long url when rendering a VF page.
Basically the problem was this:
A customer pasted a very long URL (more than 400 chars) in a Rich Text Area. When rendering the page as PDF, to print it, the URL overflow the page margin, so it wasn't visible at all.

This is the code i come up with
private String addWhiteSpaceInUrlTooLong(String text) {
        // Step 1 - Search anchor links
        Pattern ptn = Pattern.compile('<a[^>]*(>.*?)</a>'); // WATCH OUT! This regex doesn't match nested anchor
        Matcher mch = ptn.matcher(text);
        Integer charPerLine = 50; // A whitespace is inserted each charPerLine chars
        while (mch.find()) {
            String toReplace = mch.group(1);
            String substitute = '';
            Integer len = toReplace.length();

            if (len < charPerLine) //No need to replace
                continue;

            Integer elems; // White space to insert

            if (len / charPerLine == 0)
                elems = len / charPerLine;
            else
                elems = len / charPerLine + 1;

            // Insert white spaces
            for (Integer i = 1; i <= elems; i++) {
                if ((charPerLine * i) < len)
                    substitute += toReplace.substring(charPerLine * (i - 1), charPerLine * i) + ' ';
                else
                    substitute += toReplace.substring(charPerLine * (i - 1), len) + ' ';
            }

            text = text.replace(toReplace, substitute);            
        }

        // Step 2 - Search pasted links
        ptn = Pattern.compile('\\b\\s(https?://\\S.*?)(\\s|$)');
        mch = ptn.matcher(text);
        charPerLine = 60;

        while(mch.find()) {
            String toReplace = mch.group();
            String substitute = '';
            Integer len = toReplace.length();

            if (len < charPerLine)
                continue;

            Integer elems;

            if (len / charPerLine == 0)
                elems = len / charPerLine;
            else
                elems = len / charPerLine + 1;

            // Insert white spaces
            for (Integer i = 1; i <= elems; i++) {
                if ((charPerLine * i) < len)
                    substitute += toReplace.substring(charPerLine * (i - 1), charPerLine * i) + ' ';
                else
                    substitute += toReplace.substring(charPerLine * (i - 1), len) + ' ';
            }

            text = text.replace(toReplace, substitute);
        }

        return text;
    }

You could use like this:
MyCustomObject.richText = addWhiteSpaceInUrlTooLOng(MyCustomObject.richText);
Hope it will be useful ;)
 
Since WI15, SFDC allow deploying changes to batch jobs while they are running
We found out today a potential problem this raises:
We added a new field to a batch process. Post deployment, SFDC threw an 'SObject row was retrieved via SOQL without querying the requested field' error.

It seems that as the batch job was running at the same time as the code was deployed, a data subset has been queried using the old code, while the processing batch used the new code

luckily for us we reprocess failed records automatically, so no real issue , but it's something worth considering when releasing batch job changes

We are developing a mobile app using Community Designer (not templates).  This will need to be made easily available to the community members.  I believe that the way that this has to be done is by the member downloading salesforce1 from the apple or google store and then changing the settings on salesforce1 to point to the community.  The changing the settings is the issue as we just want it to be easy for someone to either self register from a mobile device or use their given credentials and login.  Any ideas on how to overcome this issue?
