i am trying to display a custom grid on an extra tab added on the product page. I managed to add the custom tab successfully using this tutorial:


Then i used this documentation to make a custom table in database and set up models etc. http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/5_-_modules_and_development/0_-_module_development_in_magento/custom_module_with_custom_database_table#template_design

However, i'm not able to figure out how to add a grid to the new created tab.

I did not paste all of my code here, but if you need any additional information, please ask.

Thanks for your help

  • Running through the entirety of creating a tab and adding a grid to it would be a pretty big, probably multi part answer. It would be nice to see what you have done so far - that way you will probably get more response. Commented Nov 11, 2014 at 16:28

Since your right content is displayed in a phtml (app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/customertab/action.phtml). In your phtml file you could display your grid using

  echo $this->getLayout()
  • this was indeed the issue, i tried tis before, but i had an error in the path :D, thanks Commented Nov 11, 2014 at 18:11
