Action status is usually used to show the status of an Ajax Process to which it is related to. It can be as simple as showing text during the update to as fancy as greying out the page and showing a loading gif. your imagination (and HTML CSS skills) are the limits

This is a very useful need at times requested by clients. “Escalate Question to Case” / “Create Case from a question” / “Convert Question to case” in either customer portal , Partner portal, or any self serve portal.
In the answers portal, when we are required to Escalate the question to a case so that the executives can handle it. Salesforce provides this functionality internally but its a little tricky to turn it on and in this post I want to address this.

In this short post I want to explain how we can generate an excel output from a VF page. We already know to how to generate a PDF from VF page. (Read more to find out how). One of the common requirements is to convert a VF page with data into an Excel sheet, here are some things you may want to keep in mind
- Use a separate VF page for export. It is advisable to use a separate VF page to export off, reason being, usually the VF page in which data resides contains buttons, links images etc. and that is not something you usually want in your excel
- Use <apex:dataTable> : this gives you a consistent output and works for both windows and MAC. (Thank you Pratyush Kumar for the Info)
- Proper validation : Before the export page is reached, make sure all validations to ensure data will be present is a good practice

I just faced a small block, Pretty simple once you've figured it out, Thought of sharing it and saving time for us in the future. Most of the time we require to reload the Standard Page following an action on the inline VF Page. The solution to this was not apparently available to me when I needed it. Usually after clicking on a link or button we need to refresh the standard (parent page) the VF page is in. Read more on how to add inline VF Pages
Problem: A VF page is inline on a standard detail Page, On click of button inside VF Page, Reload the standard Detail Page once action completes in the Inline VF page
