    Will Salesforce Visualforce still supports the merge fields usage like S-control?

    Will Visualforce still supports the merge fields usage like S-control?


    Salesforce | Parul Parul #2


    S-Controls allow Salesforce developers to leverage HTML and Javascript to create custom pages and UI components.  These customizations are used when an admin needs to work with a small set of records or fields, or if he or she needs to link to an external server.

    S-Controls enable developers to add their own functionality to a Salesforce org.  Among some of the possibilities, you can integrate hosted apps, or extend the Salesforce UI.


    Visualforce: Visualforce is the new force.com technology that lets you create custom user interfaces for your Force.com applications. With Visualforce, you can reuse many of the components found in existing Salesforce interfaces or create your own. Moreover, the interfaces can also tap into custom business logic.

    Hi Chanchal,

    Yes. Just like S-Controls, Visualforce Pages support embedded merge fields.

    S-controls have been superseded by Visualforce pages. After March 2010 organizations that have never created s-controls, as well as new organizations, won’t be allowed to create them. Existing s-controls will remain unaffected, and can still be edited. We recommend that you move your s-controls to Visualforce. We continue to support the Scontrol object.
