Number of records to show in Related List

By | December 28, 2013

We had a visual force page containing a hyperlink to navigate to the standard page of the object in one of our projects. For navigating to the standard salesforce page, we created the URL of the standard page which included the recordid (ID) of the tuple.  We were able to successfully navigate to that page but the problem we had was that it was showing only limited related records i.e. it used to show only 5 records in the related list of the object.

If the user wanted to see some more related records, then he had to click on the ‘See more’ hyperlink. To avoid that, we made some changes to the URL. We added a query string to the URL stating the number of related records to show by default when the page is visited from the visual force page.

The query string which we appended to the URL is as follows –

?rowsperlist =no of records to show”.

For Example: ?rowsperlist =10

related list

This will show the standard page of the sales force with 10 related records for that particular record.

This query string can also be applied to any object to view more or less number of related records on the standard page of salesforce.

The advantage of using this trick is that it affects all the related lists on the record but only affects the record being viewed i.e. if the record is viewed from the standard list page, this setting will not affect this page and it will show the default page with default number of related records.
