Visualforce in Custom Object or Visualforce page using Custom object controller?

I am trying to go a little futher with a Custom Object by adding in Visualforce components. It's not obvious how I do this though. Is there some way to add Visualforce to a Custom Object or would I need to make a Visualforce page that uses the Custom object's controller?

Are you trying to do something like this?
 
 
Hope that helps,

That is sort of what I was trying to do. The only problem now is even though I am able to drag my page into the layout now, it's content is not showing up. Any idea what might be wrong?

Just a guess but have encountered similar "not available in the content drop down". Turns out Visualforce pages must inherit from a standard controller and be extended, not a custom controller if you wish it to be available to layouts. It's documented but gets overlooked quite easily.

Hi i am not sure whether this is right thread for my question. I am getting error after running below visualforce page code. Error -> Unknownproperty'Candidate__cStandardController.Account'. 

"<apex:page standardController="Candidate__c">
    
    <apex:pageBlock title="Candidate Summary">
        <apex:pageBlockSection>
            //Account owner: {! Account.Owner.Name } <br/>

            Name: {! Candidate__c.Name } <br/>
            Email: {! Candidate__c.Email } <br/>
            SSN: {! Candidate__c.SSN } <br/>
            //Revenue: {! Account.AnnualRevenue } <br/>

            
        </apex:pageBlockSection>
    </apex:pageBlock>
    
</apex:page>
