Use this action hook to add extra content to the sidebar. In Gravity Forms 1.9 and earlier the content would be displayed before the Notifications box (if visible). In Gravity Forms 2.0+ the content is displayed after the meta boxes but before the print button.

Note: To add custom meta boxes to the sidebar we recommend using the gform_entry_detail_meta_boxes filter.


add_action( 'gform_entry_detail_sidebar_middle', 'add_sidebar_text_middle', 10, 2 );


  • $form

    The form from which the entry value was submitted.

  • $entry Entry Object

    The current entry.


This example adds a new box with a header and text.

add_action( 'gform_entry_detail_sidebar_middle', 'add_sidebar_text_middle', 10, 2 );
function add_sidebar_text_middle( $form, $entry ) {
    echo "<div class='stuffbox'><h3><span class='hndle'>Stuff in the Middle</span></h3><div class='inside'>text added in the middle!<br/></div></div>";


This code should be placed in the functions.php file of your active theme.
