Unable to access the inline lookup in crm 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to access the inline lookup for an N:N subgrid. The thing is the code to filter the N:N subgrid that was working in CRM 2011 is not working anymore after we upgraded. So, we tried to disable the inline lookup with code below. But the code broke at document.getElement and the Watch on line 1 showed 'undefined'. We tried window.parent.document.getElementById too but that gave the same error. Is there any way to get this working?


     var inlineBehaviour = document.getElementById('lookup_Policies_Affected_i').InlinePresenceLookupUIBehavior;

  • Hi Anwesha,

    This is not the supported way to customize the lookup.

    Things which might be working in CRM 2011 may not work with the CRM 2016 or higher version.

    Please go for the Supported way  to customize  .

  • Hi Yusuf,

    Many thanks for your response.

    I am still struggling to find the supported way to create a custom view for the new inline look up  for my N:N sub-grid. Do you have any idea how I can do this?

    Please let me know.

  • Hi Anwesha,

    Did you find any solution for this? We have the same problem in CRM 2016...

  • Hello Mohammad,

    I know that the upper solution is not supported. Did you know supported way to filter lookup (N:N) inside subgrid .

  • You can try below code

    add this on form load


    filterSubGrid() {

    varworkflowTemplatetValue = Xrm.Page.getAttribute("_workflowtemplateid").getValue(); //field to filter by


    varworkflowTemplatetGrid = document.getElementById("WorkflowTemplateSteps"); //grid to filter


    if(workflowTemplatetGrid == null) { //make sure the grid has loaded


    function() { filterSubGrid(); }, 2000); //if the grid hasn’t loaded run this again when it has






    varworkflowTemplatetValueid = "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000"; //if filter field is null display nothing


    if(workflowTemplatetValue != null) {

            workflowTemplatetValueid = workflowTemplatetValue[0].id;



    //fetch xml code which will retrieve all the accounts related to the contact


    varfetchXml = "<fetch version='1.0' output-format='xml-platform' mapping='logical' distinct='false'>"+


    "  <entity name='_workflowtemplatestep'>"+


    "    <attribute name='name' />"+


    "    <attribute name='code'/>"+


    "    <attribute name=workflowtemplatestepid' />"+


    "    <order attribute='code' descending='false' />"+


    "    <filter type='and'>"+


    " <condition attribute='statecode' operator='eq' value='0' />"+


    " <condition attribute='workflowtemplateid' operator='eq'  value='"+ workflowTemplatetValueid + "' />"+


    "    </filter>"+


    "  </entity>"+




    "fetchXml", fetchXml); //set the fetch xml to the sub grid  


    //refresh the sub grid using the new fetch xml

  • Hi Santosh,

    I tried this script but the code fails at subgrid.control and says null.

    Let me know what else can be done.
