  • Salesforce: Accessing Field label of object in VisualForce page

    In VFPage one can directly access the label of any particular field of sObject. In future if the label is changed in the sObject, same will be reflected in the VFPage. For Example: <apex:column title=”{!$ObjectType.OpportunityLineItem.fields.Quantity.label}” headerValue=”{!$ObjectType.OpportunityLineItem.fields.Quantity.label}” width=”50px”> It also avoids hard-coded labels and make it more flexible.

  • Salesforce : Converting DateTime to format YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssZ

    I spend lots of my time finding a solution for converting the datetime into the format (YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssZ) so that it can be used in SOQL query.  SOSL query returns the datetime in format(YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssZ) so for comparison one need to convert it into that format. System.debug(DateTime.now().format(‘yyyy-MM-dd\’T\’hh:mm:ss\’z\”)); I hope this will save your time. 🙂
