Custom table created with name 'picklist_item' with 'item_id' column as primary key, in one of the admin controller action, collection object for 'picklist' table has been created and called getIdFieldName() but it is returning NULL, I am expecting it should return the primary key table column name.

You should initialize the property $_idFieldName with the value of the table primary key in the collection class associated with your table:


protected $_idFieldName = 'item_id';
