I am overriding this file


I am overriding it in


Since it a template file i also need to create backend_widget_grid.xml at


with the following content

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page layout="1column" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="widget.extended">
            <action method="setTemplate">
                <argument name="template" xsi:type="string">{Vendor}_{Module}::widget/grid/extended.phtml</argument>

But I am not sure if the referenceBlock or if the backend_widget_grid.xml name I am entering is incorrect since my edit doesn't show?
