I've successfully added a custom tab with a grid to the Customer Edit form in the Magento admin. The tab uses the <insertListing> tag in its layout XML to render the grid, which works as it should. When I try to save the customer, though, the form validation throws an error. I've debugged this and it appears that when the validate() method of tab_group.js tries to call the tab's validate method it returns undefined. I've compared this to the Store Credit tab, which was created using the deprecated Grid blocks, and for that element it returns an empty array. Is there something I missed in my configuration?

  • Please share your grid code, current shared code is working fine. – kunj Oct 8 '18 at 9:21

This is the bug. So you can added mixin on it. Try following way:


var config = {
    "config": {
        'mixins': {
            'Magento_Ui/js/form/components/tab_group': {
                'VendorName_ModuleName/js/mixin/form/components/tab_group': true


], function (_) {
    'use strict';

    return function (TabGroup) {
        return TabGroup.extend({
             * Delegates 'validate' method on element, then reads 'invalid' property
             * of params storage, and if defined, activates element, sets
             * 'allValid' property of instance to false and sets invalid's
             * 'focused' property to true.
             * @param {Object} elem
            validate: function (elem) {
                // Pass through if element is not fieldset
                if (elem.index !== 'downloaded_blueprints') {
                    return this._super();

                var result = elem.delegate('validate'),

                invalid = _.find(result, function (item) {
                    if (item === undefined) {
                        return 0;

                    return !item.valid;

                if (invalid) {

                return invalid;
