    Dear Course Teacher,
    In our course, it’s said that ‘Visualforce overrides are supported for new, edit, view, tab, list and clone actions in Lightning console apps. They are not currently supported for delete and custom action.’ But in site. it’s said that ‘Action overrides aren’t supported in Lightning console apps, and are silently ignored when invoked. If a Lightning console app user triggers an action that has been overridden, they see the standard action instead. If they trigger the same action outside of a Lightning console app, they see the overridden action.” So would you please help to explain this reason for me, thanks in advance!

      Hi Joye, thanks for the inquiry. It’s true that Visualforce allows overrides for new, edit, view, tab, list, clone, and does not support overrides for delete and custom actions as mentioned here:

      Please note that you may be referring to outdated documentation: (API v41.0 – Winter 18) that talks specifically about Lightning component action overrides. From Spring 18 onwards, action overrides that use Lightning components have been supported:

      Hello Marlie. We are in high hopes that our materials will help you prepare well for your examination. The topics covered in the study guides and practice exams are concentrated on the objectives in the exam outline. We recommend you taking the practice exams over and over until you obtain the highest score possible. It’s highly recommended also to reference Trailhead and other Salesforce documentation when you encounter topics that may still not be very clear to you, or you may post your inquiries here or in the feedback forums. Lastly, it’s best to gain more hands-on experience in the Salesforce platform especially if you don’t work with it on a regular basis.

      You may also utilize the MY STUDY PLAN.

      Best wishes!

      Hi, thanks for the inquiry. The actual exam contains 60 multiple-choice/multiple-select questions. So, it doesn’t require you to write code. However, it does have questions that ask you which syntax, function, block of code, etc. is the correct or best answer. So, familiarity or knowledge of the Apex programming language is an important aspect in passing the exam. More info on the exam details can be found here:
