[8] Show a state depending on a field

on 8/5/15, 4:17 AM 1,030 views

Hi !

Is this possible to show/hide a certain state (with the statusbar widget) depending on a certain field.

For example:

class Test(models.Model):
_name = 'test.test'

foo = fields.Selection([('a', 'B'), ('b', 'B')])
state = fields.Selection([('open', 'Open'), ('a', 'A'), ('b', 'B'), ('closed', 'Closed')])

<field name="state" widget="statusbar" statusbar_visible="open,closed"/>


- if field foo is set to a, visible sates would be: open, a, closed

- if field foo is set to b, visible sates would be: open, b, closed

Is something like that possible ?

So far, I can only hide both a and b states, and show them when the record state is in either of them.

One way to do it is to add two related fields :

state_a = fields.Selection(related='state')
state_b = fields.Selection(related='state')

In the view :

<field name="state" invisible="1"/>
<field name="state_a" attrs="{'invisible': [('foo', '=', 'b')]}" statusbar_visible="open,a,closed"/>
<field name="state_b" attrs="{'invisible': [('foo', '=', 'a')]}" statusbar_visible="open,b,closed"/>

Did you test this yourself ? I'm not on this anymore, but if it actually works, I'm going to accept this answer, so that other people can use it.

Yes I used this in my code and it is working.

Hey friend:

Here is what you need:

in your XML:

In front of field_a :

<field name="field_a" attrs="{'invisible': [(foo','=',b)]}"/> 

And, in front of field_b:

<field name="field_b" attrs="{'invisible': [(foo','=',a)]}"/>  

Hope this may help you.


No, there's no field_a or field_b. I'll update my question.

We can play with invisible attribute,

So you can use:

<field name="state" widget="statusbar" statusbar_visible="open,a,closed" attrs="{'invisible': [('foo','!=','a')]}"/>
<field name="state" widget="statusbar" statusbar_visible="open,b,closed" attrs="{'invisible': [('foo','!=','b')]}"/>



Nope :/ I already tried that. Only the last statusbar will work properly. For example, in the state 'open', only the second statusbar will be colored blue (on the 'Open' li tag).
