SugarCRM: adding custom field in subpanel

How to add custom field into subpanel? Belo is example of Contracts subpanel that is showing in Accounts module/detailview.

irst thing that needs to be done is define a new field in subpanel definition and make that field point to a class. We are edititing the following file custom/modules/Contracts/metadata/subpanels/ForAccounts.php and adding additional field fot showing with following code:

'mediaart_new_field' => array(
'vname' => 'LBL_NEW_FIELD',
'widget_class' => 'SubPanelMediaartNewField', //class name
'width' => '10%',
'custom_link_only' => true,
'displayHeaderCell' => false,

After we have added that part of code we need to create coresponding SugarWidgetSubPanel class in the following path
/include/generic/Sugarwidgets/SugarWidgetSubPanelMediaartNewField.php with code like this:

<?php if(!defined('sugarEntry') || !sugarEntry) die('Not A Valid Entry Point');
class SugarWidgetSubPanelMediaartNewField extends SugarWidgetField //payattention to the name of class here

function displayHeaderCell(&$layout_def){
if(!empty($layout_def['displayHeaderCell']) && $layout_def['displayHeaderCell'] == false) {
return ' ';
else {
return parent::displayHeaderCell($layout_def);

function displayList(&$layout_def){
global $focus;
$key = strtoupper($layout_def['varname']);
$key = $this->_get_column_alias($layout_def);
$key = strtoupper($key);
// Current ProductTemplate record (in current subpanel row)
$module = $layout_def['module'];
$record = $layout_def['fields']['ID']; //id contract
$contractName = $layout_def['fields']['NAME']; //name contract


$parent_id=$_REQUEST['record']; //id account-a
//Here you define your logic, my quary to the database and the return from this function will be displayed in subpanel
//So for example you can do
$db = DBManagerFactory::getInstance();
$query = "SELECT * FROM contracts WHERE id = '$record' and account_id = '$parent_id'";
$result = $db->query($query, true,"greska");
$result = $db->fetchByAssoc($result);
$quantity = $result['broj_slucajeva'];
return $quantity; //value of this cariable will be shown in subpanel
} ?>

  3. I liked your article is an interesting technology

  4. You’ve got great insights about web programming, keep up the good work!

  5. I have tried everything to get this working with the newest version of Sugar CE 6.5…has anyone else had any luck getting custom widgets to work in this version?

    All I am able to modify with a custom widget is the table header cell and not the actual fields
