    Is it at all possible to pass a parameter through a URL to an input field on a Visualforce page? Similar to pre-populating a field, but in this case, it would be hidden. Please help.

    Hi Danna

    you can input your parameter via URL like ap2.salesforce.com/vfPages?id=01Z90000000EkUk for example

    and you can add this Id testId = ApexPages.CurrentPage().getparameters().get('id') to get the parameter from url then you can put the testId to hidden input field that you want

    Hi Danna

    Yes we can get a parameter value from URL of VisuaforcePage.

    Foe this you have to extract this value through instance in URL

    e.g. if instance of URL is

    ap4.salesforce.com/myPages?requiredvalue=Salesforce

    Then use

    String myValue = ApexPages.CurrentPage().getparameters().get(‘requiredvalue’);

    And here you have your value

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Just take out the value from URL and assign it to getter setter variable and use it on your visualforce page like -

    String getterSetterVar {get;set;}

    getterSetterVar = ApexPages.CurrentPage().getparameters().get('URLParameter');

    Hope it helps.
