Reading sub grid records using jscript in CRM 2011


In CRM 2011, we can show the related records in parent record form using sub grids.

For example below is ‘Contacts’ sub grid on ‘Account’ form

Contacts sub-grid

Contacts sub-grid

We can get the records count and read the cell values of sub grid using below script.

function getSubGridDetails() {

// Set subgrid schema name

var subGridName = ‘accountcontactsgrid’;

if (document.getElementById(subGridName)) {

var gridControl = document.getElementById(subGridName).control;

// Get records length

var countGridRecords = 0;

if (gridControl && gridControl.getRecordsFromInnerGrid()) {

countGridRecords = gridControl.getRecordsFromInnerGrid().length;

alert(“Subgrid records count – ” + countGridRecords);


// Read Cell Values By Row

for (var indxRow = 0; indxRow < countGridRecords; indxRow++)

for (var indxCell = 0; indxCell < gridControl.getRecordsFromInnerGrid()[indxRow][3].cells.length; indxCell++) {

alert(“Cell Value – ” + gridControl.getRecordsFromInnerGrid()[indxRow][3].cells[indxCell].outerText);

    it will return the count of current view of sub grid and if i want all count of all record of the sub grid?

    With above approach you can only read records load on the page (i.e., Current grid view). To read whole records you need to make OData or SOAP retrieve call.Refer my artcicles on the same
