I have a custom resource model mapping to a table named soldiers_thewatcher_watch with a primary key: watch_id.

I added the Grid UI component as well as a controller and admin link, but when I access the view (/admin/thewatcher/grid/index/) the page is basically blank in admin (the admin page loads but there is no content within the content area). I've added 1 row of data directly in the database.

I likely have a typo somewhere, but have been looking through everything for hours and cannot find where the problem is. A lot of code to follow, sorry, any help is greatly appreciated.

Route:

app/code/Soldiers/Thewatcher/etc/adminhtml/routes.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:App/etc/routes.xsd">
    <router id="admin">
        <route id="thewatcher" frontName="thewatcher">
            <module name="Soldiers_Thewatcher"/>
        </route>
    </router>
</config>

Controller:

Soldiers/Thewatcher/Controller/Adminhtml/Grid/Index.php

  namespace Soldiers\Thewatcher\Controller\Adminhtml\Grid;

  class Index extends \Magento\Backend\App\Action
  {
    /**
    * @var \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory
    */
    protected $resultPageFactory;

    /**
     * Constructor
     *
     * @param \Magento\Backend\App\Action\Context $context
     * @param \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory $resultPageFactory
     */
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Backend\App\Action\Context $context,
        \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory $resultPageFactory
    ) {
         parent::__construct($context);
         $this->resultPageFactory = $resultPageFactory;
    }

    /**
     * Load the page defined in **view/adminhtml/layout/exampleadminnewpage_helloworld_index.xml**
     *
     * @return \Magento\Framework\View\Result\Page
     */
    public function execute()
    {
         return  $resultPage = $this->resultPageFactory->create();
    }
  }

Layout:

Soldiers/Thewatcher/view/adminhtml/layout/soldiers_thewatcher_grid_index.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page>
<body>
<referenceContainer name="content">
    <uiComponent name="soldiers_thewatcher_watch_grid"/>
</referenceContainer>
</body>
</page>

Data Provider:

Soldiers/Thewatcher/Ui/Component/Listing/DataProviders/Soldiers/Thewatcher/Watch/Grid.php

<?php
namespace Soldiers\Thewatcher\Ui\Component\Listing\DataProviders\Soldiers\Thewatcher\Watch;


/**
 * Class Grid
 */
class Grid extends \Magento\Ui\DataProvider\AbstractDataProvider
{    
    public function __construct(
        $name,
        $primaryFieldName,
        $requestFieldName,
        \Soldiers\Thewatcher\Model\ResourceModel\Watch\CollectionFactory $collectionFactory,
        array $meta = [],
        array $data = []
    ) {
        parent::__construct($name, $primaryFieldName, $requestFieldName, $meta, $data);
        $this->collection = $collectionFactory->create();
    }
}

Action Bar:

<?php

                $id = "X";
                if(isset($item["watch_id"]))
                {
                    $id = $item["watch_id"];
                }
                $item[$name]["view"] = [

                ];

        return $dataSource;

I have Analysed the code you have shared there is no typo error.

The Reason for Admin Grid Page not showing/blank is because magento is not able to read your adminhtml layout file. As per your code the admin url for the grid is "http://yoursite.com/admin/thewatcher/grid/index".

Note:-

Your admin URL is thewatcher/grid/index magento will look for a layout xml file which matches the URL part and renders the output.

Your adminhtml layout file should be named as Soldiers/Thewatcher/view/adminhtml/layout/thewatcher_grid_index.xml

Currently your adminhtml layout file is named as

Soldiers/Thewatcher/view/adminhtml/layout/soldiers_thewatcher_grid_index.xml

Solution:- Rename your adminhtml layout file your Grid will be rendered

you may try to update UI Component xml (Soldiers/Thewatcher/view/adminhtml/ui_component/soldiers_thewatcher_watch_grid.xml) as given below .
