How to retrieve form values in traditional way on VF without binding

Thursday, September 24, 2009 by Aslam - The Alexendra
For exmaple you have a form with below fields:-

<input type="text" name="firstname"/>
<input type="text" name="lastname"/>
<apex:commandbutton value="SubmitMe" action="{!saveform}"/>

Your apex class's saveform method:-

public PageReference saveform(){
string firstName = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('firstname');

string lastName = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('lastname');

//So simple
//Do your stuff

return null
