Take a look into the code of Sales Order it will help you to understand where are you failling!

@max_morais_dmm how i will use it If you dont mind need more info like where i will use that code and how I will get And is it possible to use in custom script like js

Again @Baljeetsingh, certain things are not silly in frappe!

By design, you are not allowed to customize a grid in the client side! Do you need create a grid template in your backed use the form_grid_templates to register it.

So, when the client side loads the content from the backend it will be rendered!

so need little help more can you tell me where i will find all the the things like where i will create custom template and regiter part ?


You should create the template in the templates/form-grid/ folder of your app

To do the register, just open your doctype Python controler, inside the module into your app, and add

form_grid_templates = {
  "my_fieldname": "myapp/templates/form-grid/my-form-grid.html"

@max_morais_dmm I have crated the html part at required place
see un the screen shot

but not able to find py file in structure can you help me where i will get dpctype controller py file


It would be in contract folder,

@Nick see its also empty
any thing else which help me
