Refresh Dynamics 365 CRM Subgrid from Embedded Canvas App

In Microsoft Dynamics 365, the ability to embed Canvas Apps brings the power of Canvas Apps to their model-driven forms.

Recently, we got a requirement to create a record of the related entity (e.g., “Suggestion”) from the Canvas App embedded in the Appointment entity form. There was a subgrid of the “Suggestion” entity added next to the Canvas App on the Appointment form. After creating the suggestion entity record, we should see the newly added suggestion record in the subgrid, i.e., the subgrid should be refreshed.

At first, we tried the below steps to achieve this requirement.

Step 1: Create the required Canvas App with a simple form to create the suggestion record

ModelDrivenFormIntegration.RefreshForm(true);
