As industry-leading CRM consultants focusing on Salesforce solutions, Tokara Solutions can help you optimize your systems and maximize your investment in Salesforce, from its primary components like Sales Cloud and Service Cloud to frameworks that amp up CRM capabilities, like Salesforce Visualforce and APEX.
Following on last week’s posting introducing some basics of Visualforce development, today’s will look at a few of the ways Salesforce Visualforce streamlines and simplifies the development process, as well as how it delivers powerful control to developers, coupled with unparalleled design flexibility.
Simpler and Faster
One benefit of using Visualforce to supplement the development capabilities of the Salesforce1 platform is its user-friendly layout that makes it simple to edit or adjust a page without a major overhaul. Visualforce markup appears in the same window as the resulting page, so developers are constantly aware of its state and appearance each time they save their code.
Other conveniences include auto-completion, concise syntax (90% fewer lines of code than s-controls) and “quick fixes” that activate spur-of-the-moment design decisions, including a tool that creates a new Visualforce page as soon as you type its title in your URL. Additionally, its Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture splits the style development between look and feel (determined by designers) and functionality (determined by developers), freeing up your team to work individually on separate components.
Flexibility of Design
Visualforce is available in the Salesforce1 Contact Manager, Group, Professional, Enterprise, Unlimited, Performance, and Developer editions. Compiled and rendered entirely by the Force.com platform, Visualforce pages are stored as metadata and are automatically upgraded when other parts of the system are enhanced.
