How to hide child doc fields?

In my parent doc(Finished Goods) hava a select field with three options “Poly”, “Folding” and “Carton” and in Child doc(Finished Goods Child) have three fields “carton_no”, “size”, “quantity”.

I want if parent doctype field select Poly or Folding then hide “carton_no” field/div in “Finished Goods Child” doc.

Thanks in advance


I am new to ERPNext, so please forgive me if my answer is wrong / not exactly what you need.
I would try to edit the carton_no field’s properties like in the picture below:

I named the the parent select field carton_type.



Use below method:
cur_frm.fields_dict[child_table].grid.set_column_disp(field_name, condition);
For eg:

cur_frm.fields_dict[“items”].grid.set_column_disp(“custom_qty”, frm.doc.order_type==‘Sales’);

In sales order, if order_type is Sales then custom_qty in child table will display

For more details, kindly check stock_entry.js file erpnext/stock_entry.js at master · frappe/erpnext · GitHub

Thanks, Rohit

Not working

Thank you for your effort

Trying … :slight_smile:

You can try :


Please try this.

frappe.ui.form.on("Finished Goods Process Child", "finish_goods_process_child_add", function(frm) {
     if ('grid' in cur_frm.fields_dict.finish_goods_process_child) {
         var grid =  cur_frm.fields_dict.finish_goods_process_child.grid;         
         var interval = setInterval(function () {
             if ('cur_grid' in grid.frm) {
                 if(cur_frm.doc.typ != "Carton"){


It works!
Thank you very much Mr Mainul :slight_smile:

Is this code supposed to be cahnged/written in a file on the server or put as a custom script? (sorry for the noob question, I’m still learning).

Yes, you need write this code in “doctype_file.js” on DocType Directory.

You can use eval:parent.carton_type==="Carton" in “Depends On” property of child fields “carton_no”.

Hi @mainul
For every row of child table, Is it possible to hide/show a custom field when Item Code uom(Must be Whole Number) is selected.

can you give an Example?

Suppose to be, I have 2-items x and y. For item-x the uom(Must be Whole Number) is checked, so we should show custom_field in child table. For item-y the uom(Must be Whole Number) is unchecked, so we should hide custom_field in child table.
