Event triggered when you click on 'create new doc' from link field


Is there any event clicked when I select the ‘Create New Journal Entry’ link ?

Here is an example with Purchase Receipt Item where I send supplier to the batch quick entry form:

frappe.ui.form.on('Purchase Receipt', {
    refresh(frm) {
        var df = frappe.meta.get_docfield("Purchase Receipt Item","batch_no", frm.doc.name);
        df.get_route_options_for_new_doc = function (field) {
            return {
                "item": field.doc.item_code,
                "supplier": field.doc.supplier

Another way is to define a quick entry form, with your doctype name as prefix. Frappe will pick this one instead of the generic QuickEntryForm.
To access any fields from the calling doc, use frappe._from_link.doc

frappe.ui.form.BatchQuickEntryForm = frappe.ui.form.QuickEntryForm.extend({
    render_dialog: async function() {
      let doc = this.doc;
      let calling_doc = frappe._from_link?.doc;
	  // do your stuff

Great, thanks!!!

Will test this out. Both of your answers are solutions, but we can pick only one at a time :slight_smile:
