Filter SubGrid in Dynamics 365 (with New Form Rendering or Turbo Form)

Recently we had a requirement wherein we wanted to see all the child records of a record in a SubGrid .

We had self-referential (hierarchical relationship) enabled for that entity.

Configuring the Sub Grid on the form.

We have also enabled the Editable grid for the Sub Grid.

The JavaScript code

function filterSubGrid()
// get the current record's guid
var entityId =;

// refer the subgrid
var testGrid = window.parent.document.getElementById("Test");

if (testGrid == null)
setTimeout(function () {filterSubGrid(); }, 2000);

// fetch xml code using User operator
var fetchXml = "<fetch distinct='false' no-lock='false' mapping='logical'>" +
"<entity name='new_test' >" +
"<attribute name='new_name' />" +
" <attribute name='new_testname' />" +
"<order attribute='new_name' descending='true' />" +
"<filter type='and'>" +
"<condition attribute='new_testid' operator='under' value='"+entityId+"'"+"/>" +
"</filter>" +
"</entity>" +

if (testGrid.control != null)
testGrid.control.SetParameter("fetchXml", fetchXml);
setTimeout(filterSubGrid, 500);

The filtered Sub Grid (editable)

Note :- The JavaScript code is unsupported as we are making use of getElementById instead of Xrm library to access subgrid.

Using ILMerge for Plugin in CRM

If we make use of external assembly in our Plugin (sandboxed) we will get the exception of FileNotFound.

Just build the project and we are done.

The assembly inside Reflector: –

Missing Price for Products in The Portal Connector – E Commerce Settings – Dynamics CRM.

Recently we configured products from CRM to e-commerce setting of The Portal Connector and found that the price for the product was missing.

The way to fix this issue is to Open the product form in CRM and add the list price field on the product form and specify the value there.

Once value is specified, go to administration – portal connector configuration and click on Resynchronize to update the product record in the portal.

Once synchronization is done, we can see the values updated in the portal.
