    Its better to use the MIGX - configurator for more advanced stuff like that.

    Go to the MIGX - CMP

    Create a new configuration with an unique name, for example:


    put this same name also into the field 'unique MIGX ID'

    Then create your columns and Tabs with fields.
    For your column, where you want to render the nested MIGX, use another name,
    for example:


    select the this.renderChunk - renderer for that column
    and put this getImageList - call into the renderChunk Tpl - field (textarea):

    [[getImageList? &value=`[[+units]]` &tpl=`unitColumn`]]

    Don't forget to remove the old formtabs and columns from your MIGX - TV
    and put the name of your configuration


    into the field 'configs' of your MIGX - TV

    This makes so much sense now - thanks for the help Bruno

        Hi Tramp1357,

        Firstly, please try your ModX installation in an alternative browser. This will show whether or not the issue is browser related.

        If you cannot replicate the problem in another browser, please let me know what version of Firefox you're using and if you're a Mac or PC user and I'll do my best to help.

        If the problem occurs in whatever browser you're using, then you have most likely not copied across all the code.

        Make sure you have done the following:

        1. Edit: core/components/migx/model/migx/migx.class.php

        After this block of code (line 855):

        if (isset($column['renderer']) && !empty($column['renderer'])) {
        $col['renderer'] = $column['renderer'];
        $handlers[] = $column['renderer'];

        ...add this code:

        if (isset($column['rendereroptions']) && !empty($column['rendereroptions'])) {
        $col['rendereroptions'] = $column['rendereroptions'];
        $handlers[] = $column['rendereroptions'];

        2. Check that your MIGX tv includes json that looks similar to the following example - notice the "renderoptions" key:

        {"header": "Client", "width": "160", "sortable": "false", "dataIndex": "client", "renderer": "this.renderSnippet", "rendereroptions":{"name":"ExampleSnippet", "options":"height=22&width=90"}},

        Let me know how you get on.

        Kind regards

          Hi Bruno!

          I was wondering if you could help me with my problem. I've been digging information about this for awhile now. There are methods i've tried upon reading these threads. So here it is:

          I have created an inputTV named "product_select" where all products from different resources are listed in Listbox (single select). The option is setup like this [[+pagetitle]]==[[+id]]. So on Listbox select option, only the pagetitle is being displayed but we know that the value is the resource ID alone. So, when it's done, what will be display on MIGX grid will be the ID alone.

          Instead of the ID being displayed on the table grid, i want to grab the pagetitle of the resource instead, but of course in frontend i want the ID value.

          Here's my Form Tabs:

                  "fields": [
                          "field": "product",
                          "caption": "Product",
                          "description": "select a product here",
                          "inputTV": "product_select"

          and here's my Grid Columns:

                  "header": "Products",
                  "dataIndex": "product",
                  "renderer": "this.renderChunk",
                  "renderchunktpl": "[[getResources? &parents=`-1` &resources=`[[+product]]` &tpl=`@INLINE [[+pagetitle]]`]]"

          But still i can't get it working. Still the table grid is displaying the resource ID not the pagetitle. I there any other way to do it? or i'm almost there but just missing some things smiley Thanks a lot

            try it with getResourceField and do not use the same fieldname for the rendered column:

                    "header": "Products",
                    "dataIndex": "renderproduct",
                    "renderer": "this.renderChunk",
                    "renderchunktpl":"[[getResourceField? &id=`[[+product]]`]]"

              you can buy me a beer, if you like MIGX

              Hello Bruno,

              Thanks for responding smiley I greatly appreciate it.

              I tried the configuration above. But the grid table won't display anything instead. For what i understand is that because the fieldname "renderproduct" is not the same as the fieldname in the form tab. I'm sorry for i'm not really getting the logic yet, and i just assume that the placeholder "[[+product]]" is the value from the form tab item that being added, am i right?

              To explain more my problem, Here are some images i added smiley thanks a lot

                Hello, Bruno17
                I'm using MIGX (not MIGXdb) and encountered a problem.
                I created MIGX configuration "views" - a list of images with a single box img.
                Then I created a variable views and made her the type of input MIDX, the configuration of "views".
                Then I created MIGX configuration options, and one of the fields (views) prelingual previously created variable views.

                Then did everything as You wrote:
                1. added RendererOptions (name -> "listViews")

                2. created chunk "listViews" with the text
                [[!getImageList? &value=`[[+views]]` &tpl=`viewsTpl`]]

                3. created chunk "viewsTpl" with the text
                <img src="[[pThumb?input=`/assets/images/[[+img]]`&options=`w=40&h=50`]]"/>

                As a result, I can add some pictures and then they are displayed correctly in the grid... until page reload.
                After reboot the box looks empty, although if you look through the console, the value is:

                => Array
                [tv_id] => 18
                [value_id] => 132
                [value] => [{
                the "views":"<img src=\"/assets/components/phpthumbof/cache/img1.f0af6888de2028e181c0a09115c92beb.jpg\"/> <img src=\"/assets/components/phpthumbof/cache/img2.7fd24f46ae1a1b84d4600643606606bb.jpg\"/> <img src=\"/assets/components/phpthumbof/cache/img3.95a2a7c389845d355abe5168ee7ce45b.jpg\"/> ",

                What did I do wrong?

                  [{"caption":"Характеристики", "fields": [

                    "header": "Цвет", "width": "20", "dataIndex":"render_color",
                    "header": "Иконка", "width": "50", "dataIndex":"icon","renderer": "this.renderImage"
                    "header": "Заголовок", "dataIndex": "title"

                    "header": "Ссылка", "dataIndex": "link"

                  and chunk tplColor:
                  <div style="width: 20px; height: 20px; background: [[+color]]"></div>
