Hi R,

What is your use case for adding columns to your grid? Are you trying to add columns dynamically?

rrt - Friday, July 8, 2016 1:35 AM:

yes i want to add column dynamically to existing grid .

Hi R,

I'm not seeing a built-in function for dynamically adding a column to an existing grid. I recommend writing a custom function that adds a column to the grid definition and refreshes the grid.

You have any idea about function to add column to grid  dynamically

Hi R,

Can you provide the code you have so far for initializing your grid in the HTML field? 

rrt - Tuesday, July 12, 2016 2:11 AM:

var gridControl = null;
var gridXML = '' +
'<table class="myTable">' +
getHeaderForPackRecon() +
abc() +

window.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function () {
clientControlsFactory.createControl("Aras.Client.Controls.Public.GridContainer", {id: "grid", connectId: "gridTD"}, function(control)
gridControl = grid = control;
clientControlsFactory.on(grid, {
"gridClick": onClick,
"gridSelectCell": onSelectCell,
"gridKeyPress": onKeyPressed,
"gridEditCell": OnEditCell,
"gridMenuClick": onMenuClick,
"gridMenuInit": InitMenu,
"gridDoubleClick": onDoubleClick


above code is for intializing grid

Hi R,

Based on your code above, your custom addRow() function will need to modify the contents gridXML to add a row to the table and header.

Hi R,

Pardon my typo - I meant that your addColumn() function will need to update the gridXML. Basically, what you will need to do is append the new column header to the output of getHeaderForPackRecon() and append the new column body to the output of abc(). You may also need to update the query that retrieves the contents of your grid to get the data for your new column. Lastly, re-initialize your grid with the new gridXML. The grid should repaint with the new column.
