Create following xml file for add column:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="adminhtml.newslettrer.subscriber.grid.columnSet">
            <block class="Magento\Backend\Block\Widget\Grid\Column">
                    <argument name="header" xsi:type="string" translate="true">New Column</argument>
                    <argument name="index" xsi:type="string">subscriber_confirm_code</argument>
                    <argument name="header_css_class" xsi:type="string">col-email</argument>
                    <argument name="column_css_class" xsi:type="string">ccol-email</argument>
        <referenceBlock name="adminhtml.newslettrer.subscriber.grid.massaction">
                <argument name="options" xsi:type="array">
                    <item name="unsubscribeTEST" xsi:type="array">
                        <item name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Unsubscribe TEST</item>
                        <item name="url" xsi:type="string">*/*/massUnsubscribe</item>

Here index should be table column name.

<argument name="index" xsi:type="string">subscriber_confirm_code</argument>

  • How we can add New mass action in same as i have try to do in this way ? <referenceBlock name="adminhtml.newslettrer.subscriber.grid.massaction"> <block class= "Magento\Backend\Block\Widget\Grid\Massaction"> <argument name="data" xsi:type="array"> <item name="config" xsi:type="array"> <item name="type" xsi:type="string">unique_name</item> <item name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Do massaction</item> <item name="url" xsi:type="url" path="atwix_testattribute/order/domassaction"/> </item> </argument> </block> </referenceBlock>

  • show your routes.xml. vendorname_modulename/foldername/massTets should be 'frontName/[foldername]/massTets'.

You can column from that file "newsletter_subscriber_block.xm" you can see code like for add column:

<block class="Magento\Backend\Block\Widget\Grid\Column" as="firstname">
        <argument name="header" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Customer First Name</argument>
        <argument name="index" xsi:type="string">firstname</argument>
        <argument name="default" xsi:type="string">----</argument>
        <argument name="header_css_class" xsi:type="string">col-first-name</argument>
        <argument name="column_css_class" xsi:type="string">col-first-name</argument>
  • Thanks for comment but what will be the file path will it be like this app\code\Vendorname\Modulename\view\adminhtml\layout\newsletter_subscriber_block.xml ? do we need to override or simply copy the file from vendor\magento\module-newsletter\view\adminhtml\layout\newsletter_subscriber.xml and copy in app\code\Vendorname\Modulename\view\adminhtml\layout\newsletter_subscriber_block.xml ? and added the new column in my file
