Add event in LWC and Listen in Visualforce page

While reading this, you might have an idea how it should works and why ? In order to make it easy, I narrow down problem statement so I can write simple, short solution for future reference. All comments, ideas except spams are welcome.

Problem Statement

  • Now how do I redirect page ?


Adding create event in LWC and add the listener to visualforce page

Technical Implementation

In LWC javascript , create event on function that handles redirection. For example maybe you want user to go to different page when the button is clicked.

 //function to redirect to opportunity detail
        this.showLoadingSpinner = false;
  //create new Event with any meaningful name, in my case 'redirectFromLWC'
        this.dispatchEvent(new CustomEvent('redirectFromLWC', 
               detail: { recordId: this.opportunityId,recordMode:"detail"},
               bubbles: true,
               composed: false,


In Aura app, ensure you define EVENT

<aura:application access="GLOBAL" extends="ltng:outApp" >
 <aura:dependency resource="myCustom_lwc"/>
 <aura:dependency resource="markup://force:*" type="EVENT"/>

In Visualforce page, add the listener to listen to the event. Ensure the event name is matched.

document.addEventListener("redirectFromLWC", function(event){
           console.log('vf event data window listener => ', event.detail);
    //here is just code to get the details that passed from the event
           var detail =JSON.stringify(event.detail);
           console.log('data => '+detail);
           var data =JSON.parse(detail);
           console.log('data.recordId => '+data.recordId);
           var recordId =data.recordId;
           var recordMode =data.recordMode;
          //here the code is to handle navigation, as you can see I have to condition one in go to details
    // and another is go to edit.
                console.log('data.recordId 1=> '+ '{!oppId}');
  , recordMode); 
         else if(recordMode=='edit'){

//other code

Tips and Tricks : Test class for Invocable method

Issue : I got 100% coverage in my sandbox but when run validation for deployment it returns 0% coverage It turn out that in my sandbox, I am depending on Process Builder to Invocable Apex class, as long I manipulate test data that fire Process Builder it will call Invocable class. This is not useful when deploying it to Production although it gets deployed together with Process Builder. The correct way is to direct call Invocable method inside test class itself. Example of class : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 global class MyCustomObject_StatusUpdate_Util { @InvocableMethod ( label = ' Update Quote Status ' ) public static void updateQuote ( Request [] requests ) { Set < Id > setOppId = new Set < Id >(); List < SBQQ__Quote__c > listQuoteToUpdate = new List < SBQQ__Quote__c >(); for ( Request request : requests ) {
