Is it possible to show DocA's DocField in DocB's Form?

I have a DocType named Doc Type A. In there I have multiple documents, with names, say, Doc 1, Doc 2 and etc. Each Doc 1, Doc 2 and etc has a DocField of type Image named Field.

I have another DocType named Doc Type Z, and when I fill in the form when creating Doc Type Z, I want one of its fields to show Doc 1’s particular Field.

Don’t think I can use Options. Likely to work is Fetch From, of which I can’t get it to work:

Doc Type A.Doc 1.Field



won’t work.

Is this possible at all?

have DocType A and Z any link between ? i think only linked DocType ( Tables ) can use in option to fetch from.

Nice! To be precise, Doc Type A’s image link can be retrieved and pasted into DocField of Type data. This at least shows retrieval is working.

I can’t set value for Type Image yet.

Here is the detail for Doc Type A:

This is Doc Type Z:

Image cannot be set.

In order to set an image we might not use frm.set_value()…

I am studying other methods, and I found:

  • frm.set_df_property()

I’m trying to figure out how to do it using Make Read Only After Saving

Hi @charleslcso,

We did set like:
Using fetch from, Item Image set in Test DocType.

Field → Image
Field Type → Attach Image

Test DocType Configuration:


I hope this helps.

Thank you very very much.

Do you think it is possible to show the Image, not the file path?

Hi @charleslcso,

Configure it.

Add more one field like Image View and Type is Small Text. Also, Make a read-only field.

Then apply the client script:

frappe.ui.form.on('Test Child Table', {
	item: function(frm, cdt, cdn) {
	    var row = locals[cdt][cdn];
	    var iv = '<img src='+row.image+' style="width:25%;">';
        frappe.model.set_value(cdt, cdn, 'image_view', iv);

Please set your field and doctype according.

When you select the item then item image will appear.

I hope this helps.
Thank You!
