Example

<!-- For this example to render properly, you must associate the Visualforce page 
with a valid opportunity record in the URL. 
For example, if 001D000000IRt53 is the opportunity ID, the resulting URL should be: 
https://Salesforce_instance/apex/myPage?id=001D000000IRt53
See the Visualforce Developer's Guide Quick Start Tutorial for more information. -->
                        
         
<apex:page standardController="Opportunity" recordSetVar="opportunities" tabstyle="opportunity"> <apex:form id="changePrivacyForm"> <apex:pageBlock > <apex:pageMessages /> <apex:pageBlockButtons> <apex:commandButton value="Save" action="{!save}"/> </apex:pageBlockButtons> <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!opportunities}" var="o"> <apex:column value="{!o.name}"/> <apex:column value="{!o.account.name}"/> <apex:column headerValue="Private?"> <apex:inputCheckbox value="{!o.isprivate}"/> </apex:column> </apex:pageBlockTable> </apex:pageBlock> </apex:form> </apex:page>

The example above renders the following HTML:

<!-- allows you to change the privacy option of your opportunity -->
<form id="j_id0:changePrivacyForm" name="j_id0:changeStatusForm" method="post"
    action="/apex/sandbox" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded"> <!-- opening div tags --> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tr> <td class="pbTitle"> </td> <td id="j_id0:changePrivacyForm:j_id1:j_id29" class="pbButton"> <input type="submit"
                    name="j_id0:changePrivacyForm:j_id1:j_id29:j_id30"
                    value="Save" class="btn"/> </td> </tr> </table> <div class="pbBody"> <table class="list" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <colgroup span="3"/> <thead> <tr class="headerRow "> <th class="headerRow " scope="col">Opportunity Name</th> <th class="headerRow " scope="col">Account Name</th> <th class="headerRow " scope="col">Privacy?</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr class="dataRow even first "> <td class="dataCell"><span>Burlington Textiles Weaving Plant Generator</span></td> <td class="dataCell"><span>Burlington Textiles Corp of America</span></td> <td class="dataCell"><input type="checkbox" name="j_id0:changePrivacyForm:j_id1:j_id31:0:j_id35" checked="checked" /></td> </tr> <tr class="dataRow odd last "> <td class="dataCell"><span>Edge Emergency Generator</span></td> <td class="dataCell"><span>Edge Communications</span></td> <td class="dataCell"><input type="checkbox" name="j_id0:changePrivacyForm:j_id1:j_id31:0:j_id35" checked="checked" /></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> <!-- closing div tags --> </form>
