This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


The error message indicates that the function is called on a non-object. Looking at your code, the object which seems to be a "non-object" is $this->getLayout()->getBlock('products.grid'). This indicates that your block is not declared correctly in the layout. You should have a layout update for adminhtml where you have something like

    <reference name="content">
       <block name="products.grid" type="YOUR/GRIDTYPE" />
