Prevent User moving BPF next stage or Set current stage Active based on Sub-grid record count or any type condition in Dynamics 365

Sometimes we may have requirement to prevent BPF stage to set active or move next stage based on some condition.
Here I want to describe similar kind of requirement , let say I am  in opportunity  stage called “Develop” , I want to validate one  subgrid in the form which having at least one record when user click on “Next Stage” or “Save” or “Set Active” one . If the record count = 0 then stage will not move forward and not been saved.
You may use this concept to validate  any field value or  some custom logic.
Here is few high level  steps –
Copy below scripts in a JavaScript web resource. Replace the stage name and subgrid name and don’t forget to replace double comma with double quote.
function ValidateSelectedStageOnSave(context) {var result = true;// Get current stage namevar stageName =;if (stageName == "develop") { // Need to replace the stage name which you want to validatevar count = 0;//Replace the subgrid name in belowif (Xrm.Page != null && Xrm.Page != undefined && Xrm.Page.getControl("subgridcompetitorid") != null && Xrm.Page.getControl("subgridcompetitorid") != undefined) {count = Xrm.Page.getControl("subgridcompetitorid").getGrid().getTotalRecordCount();}if (count == -1 || count == 0) {Xrm.Page.ui.setFormNotification("Please add at least one competitor", "INFO", "2001"); // Set notificationcontext.getEventArgs().preventDefault();return false;}else {Xrm.Page.ui.clearFormNotification("2001"); // Clear notification}}}

Register the function  ValidateSelectedStageOnSave in “OnSave” of the Opportunity entity form. Make sure you passed the execution context while registering the method “OnSave” event.

Here you can see the Develop Stage can’t move and its showing a form notification as there is no record in the subgrid.
