Looking to embed an existing VF page on a skid page tab.

edited September 2016 in Questions
Found some info on it but missing the basic starting point as to where to place a reference to the VF Page. I am totally new to Skuid. Basic starting as to what Component type is needed? Other basic starting points would be helpful.

Thanks!

    Very good, thanks Rob. I'll dig into it.

    Hey Rob, I am getting this now, "
    The name can only contain underscores and alphanumeric characters. It must begin with a letter and be unique, and must not include spaces, end with an underscore, or contain two consecutive underscores."

    Here is the iframe I used from the thread you mentioned. <iframe src="/apex/<<BoxProjectFiles>>?Id={{{SFDC_Project__c}}}&isdtp=vw" width="100%" height="600px" frameborder="0"/>

    Here is a screen shot of the layout and referenced VF Page. Any quick ideas? Thanks again!

    Aha. Box.com.  We've seen this before.  

    First.  You don't wrap your  VF Page name in <<brackets>>   That is why you are getting the error message. 

    But Second.  Because the VF page is really just generating an iFrame and passing parameters to it,  you can bypass the VF page entirely and just put the iFrame with parameters into the template component in your Skuid page. 

    Here is another forum post where this is described:  https://community.skuidify.com/skuid/topics/adding_a_box_custom_component_or_template_to_my_page

    Cheers.
