I just ran into an issue working on an 8.2 version of the Infor CRM web client. I was building a quickform with an editable grid that contained various tools that should be rendered on the toolbar. When I deployed the grid would not load and I was getting a client side error of:
dojo.js:2 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'childNodes' of null at Object.place (dojo.js:2) at Object.addToolsToWorkspaceToolbar (Sage-Combined.js:1) at Object.postMixInProperties (Sage-Combined.js:1) at Object.create (Sage-Combined.js:1) at Object.postscript (Sage-Combined.js:1) at new <anonymous> (dojo.js:2) at ProgramAccounts.js:189 at _cc (dojo.js:2) at _37 (dojo.js:2) at dojo.js:2
This code was failing when trying to place the Tools onto the form’s toolbar area.
However in my case the SmartPartID of the smart part defined on the page was different than the name of the Quickform. i.e. the Quickform name was “MyAccounts” but on the page this tab was defined with a SmartPartID of “MyAccount”.
The lesson here: make sure your page SmartPartIDs do not differ from the name of the Quickform. Pretty lame-o.
