Add Lightning Components to VisualForce Page

By | March 27, 2017

Salesforce has reimagined the platform from Classic to Lightning. With the lightning version, accessing data and tools has become easier. The major advantage of Salesforce Lightning over Salesforce Classic is its faster response time with enhanced user interface. Lightning uses its own set of components and design system which is different from Salesforce Classic. The Lightning apps are built around lightning components and till date the use of lightning components were restricted to Lightning apps. However, for all those users who were keen on using Lightning components in their VisualForce page, there is a work around.

This post shows how to implement this functionality of adding Lightning Components to VisualForce Page. Proceed with the following steps: –

  1. Create a lightning component, named “LightningCompForVF” either through developer console or through your IDE. Use the below mentioned code in your lightning component.

  1. Now use this Lightning component in a Lightning app. For this, we recommend you to create a new Lightning app, named “LightningAppForVF” and use the lightning component in this app.

  2. Create a VisualForce page that will display this lightning component.

  3. VisualForce page should provide the interface where the lightning component that we are going to use in the page can be viewed. Use the below code in your VisualForce page.

Once the page is created and previewed, the Lightning component will appear in your VisualForce page. Although this is just a demo, it does open doors for developers to experiment and implement lightning components in VisualForce pages.
