Field to show read-only grid (TrekGlobal contribution 1006181)


We want to implement a new field type in core that can show a grid for a detail tab.

  • the field can admit and call callouts that would be triggered when a line of the grid is selected

  • the value to save in the field is the ID (converted to String) of the record selected, or a list of IDs separated by commas in the case of multi-selection (so, the String field must defined with enough space to save the mutliple IDs selected)

Our intention is to interact with this field via callouts, so a callout can potentially fill other fields on the master tab, and the master can have buttons that call a process to do things on the detail (this would be processing the list of IDs on the field).

Reopened this ticket, as reported by at
this feature is broken in 6.2

From my tests with the packin uploaded above:

  • The window opens

  • The grids are there, with all the headers, data, etc - they can be seen using the inspect elements tool in chrome - but for some reason they are not visible

Until now my research -> It's possible some change in zk broke it and it requires some tuning in the class GridTabSelectionListView

Adding here two files for test purposes:


  • - a 2pack that creates a new menu entry with name "Test New Grid Field"


  • - a patch to integrate temporarily in core for the test purposes of the window

I'm currently migrating from 2.1 to 4.1 and i tested the migration scripts.

All updates of AD_Field.SeqNo cannot be applied as Now() is not a valid object (00904. 00000 - "%s: invalid identifier")
Did I miss something or does someone make a copy/paste from postgre to oracle ?
