How to use Visualforce Remote Object in Salesforce

By | August 28, 2015

Instead of Javascript remoting we can use the new feature VisualForce Remote Object. While using Javascript remoting we need to write controller method with @RemoteAction notation, so this will no longer be needed if we use Visualforce Remote Object. Here are the some advantages over Javascript Remoting –

  1. Only need a Visualforce Page.
  2. No controller required so no need to write test class.

Please note, this feature is under pilot release, so you need to raise a case to Salesforce to enable this feature.


JavaScript Code Sample:


In above snippet, we are calling retrieve () method, which retrieves records by calling retrieve () on remote object model instance. Also, we can do CRUD operation using Visualforce Remoting Object as well.
