Testing Visualforce Custom Controller

Custom Controller

Testing Visualforce custom controller is required because custom controllers like all Apex codes, should be covered by unit tests.

Custom controllers contain custom logic and data manipulation that can be used by a Visualforce page. Use custom controllers when you want your Visualforce page to run in system mode, which does not enforce the permissions and field-level security of the current user. For example, a custom controller can retrieve a list of items to be displayed, make a callout to an external web service, validate and insert data, and so on.


Unit tests are class methods that verify whether a particular piece of code is working properly. Unit test methods take no arguments, commit no data to the database, and are flagged with the @isTest annotation in the method definition.

For this post,consider the custom controller – updateRecordCon

public class updateRecordCon {

  public List<Bank__c> banks {get;set;} 
  public updateRecordCon (){
   public void init() {   
      banks = [select Id, Name, Works__c, Region__c, Source__c, Services__c 
     from Bank__c ORDER BY Name LIMIT 4];   
    public PageReference updateRecord(){             
        update banks;
        return null;

The Visualforce markup named updateListRecords below uses the controller above:

<apex:page controller="updateRecordCon">
 <style type="text/css">
  #title {
  font-size: 150%;
  margin-left: 30%;
  <h2 id="title">Update Banks Records</h2><br/><br/>
    <apex:form >
    <apex:pageBlock >
        <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!banks}" var="b">
            <apex:column headervalue="Bank Name">
                <apex:OutputText value="{!b.Name}" /> 
            <apex:column headervalue="Source">
                <apex:OutputText value="{!b.Source__c}" />
            <apex:column headervalue="Services">
                <apex:inputText value="{!b.Services__c}" />
            <apex:column headervalue="Region">
                <apex:inputText value="{!b.Region__c}" />
           <apex:column >
                <apex:commandLink action="{!updateRecord}" value="Update"/>                            

The Apex Test class below test the controller – updateRecordCon

public class updateRecordCon_Test {
    //Each of the two test methods here gives a 83 test coverage
 @isTest static void testUpdateRecords(){
      Bank__c b = new Bank__c(Name= 'CitiyBank', Source__c='Web',  
       Works__c='Gen Repairs', Region__c='West', Services__c='Repairs');
       insert b;
     PageReference pageRef = Page.updateListRecords;
        ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().put('id', String.valueOf(b.Id));
     updateRecordCon controller = new updateRecordCon();
    PageReference prf = controller.updateRecord();
     System.assertEquals(null, prf); //assertion

Running the test gave 100% test coverage. Click the Test tab to check the status of the TestRun. Expand it to see the test class and the method result like the image below:
