ID & Blob Datatypes in APEX

ID & Blob Datatypes in APEX


Any valid ID (18-character identifier). If you set ID to a 15-character value then apex converts its value to its 18-character representation.

Note: All invalid ID values are rejected with a runtime exception.


A collection of binary data stored as a single object.

A blob is typically used to store images, audio or other multimedia objects and sometimes binary executable code is also stored as a blob. We can convert this datatype to string or from string using the toString() and valueOf() methods.

Ex: String s = ‘abc’;

Blob b = Blob.valueOf(s);

String s1 = b.toString();
