  • How to make outputField/inputField tags in visualforce recognize the RecordTypes used in Salesforce.  Currently visualforce tags are not record type aware.  This causes problems when you have picklist and multi-select picklist that display values specific to certain record types.


  • Second suggestion is how do you overwrite standard buttons/links on a page layout that is specific to a recordtype. 

    For example:


                Page Layout A  is associated with recordtype Customer

                Page Layout B is associated with recordtype Partner


               Now I want to override the edit button with my own visualforce page for page layout A but not for page layout B.  Is there any way to do this other than recreating the standard buttons?


  • Third request.  How to incorporate price books and product lists into a custom objects.  I have a custom object to track service on instruments.  I want to put the replacement parts in to a price book and then be able to look up the price of the replacement part by referencing the part number in the product catalog.  How to I do this and how do I create a select list to open different price books (i.e.., USA Dollar VS Euro or Volume Discount price book).
