Hi @nikhil1,

I am not sure if I understand you correctly. Typically, change triggers for form fields can be defined in the custom script of the affected doctype, simply by using the field’s name as key. Something like this

frappe.ui.form.on([DocType], {
    [trigger]: function(frm) {

For example on DocType Item, when changing description

frappe.ui.form.on("Item", {
    "description": function(frm) {
        frappe.msgprint("Changed description");

You can find more information in Developer Cheatsheet · frappe/frappe Wiki · GitHub. Hope this helps.

Did the onchange event in js worked for you. I m facing the same issue. Your help will be great

You can follow this code this is working fine

frappe.ui.form.on(‘Purchase Receipt’, {
supplier: function(frm) {




Onchange event is not trigger on quick entry form. I think that was the reason that you can’t see console. Try this on full edit form. But if you want to call this event on quick entry form then check this link.
