get total records count in the subgrid, crm 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a subgrid in a CRM 2016 form.

    I want to check the count of records in the subgrid, and if it is more than one I should make a field readonly on the form.

    I tried to get rowsCount as below

    Xrm.Page.getControl("name").getGrid().getTotalRecordCount(), but it is returning -1.

    (I have added  Xrm.Page.getControl("name").addOnLoad(myFunction) at form load.

    And also refreshing subgrid on form load)

    I need to check the countofrecords onLoad of the form and Add/Remove of items on the subgrid.

    (My Subgrid is a custom subgrid, which gets data using custom fetchxml query)

    Need your suggestions.

  • Hi,

    You can use below code. Replace "Activity" with your subgrid name.

    function RetrieveSubGridRecords(){

    if (document.getElementById("Activity")) {
     var grid = document.getElementById("Activity").control;
     var ids = grid.get_allRecordIds();
    //your logic;
        else {
            setTimeout("RetrieveSubGridRecords();", 2500);


    Hope this help.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Is there any supported way, without using 'document.getElementById'.

  • Hi,

    Please debug your code and check are you getting the getTotalRecordCount property for the subgrid or not.

    Hope this help.

  • You can get number of rows in supported way using Xrm.Page.getControl("name").getGrid().getTotalRecordCount() by adding timeout before for the javascript code because subgrid takes some time to load after the form is loaded.

    If subgrid is not completly loaded with all records then it returns wrong number of records.

    Refer below blog for identifying event for records added or removed on sub grid.
