@api.depends on super field not working

Hello everyone,

i want to use the method decorator `@api.depends` on an inherited model and I want to depend on two super fields, namely: `project.task_count` and `project.issue_count`

I got the following code so far:

class xyz_project_management_project(models.Model):
    _inherit = 'project.project'
# ...
    def _set_color_from_task_and_issue_count(self):
        print 'Hello API World'

But this method is never called. What I am doing wrong here?


i think you have to call the function in a button.

It is actually possible to create a new computed field which does not store the result and which gets the values out of the fields I want and everytime it changes it fires a function. Not the cleanest method but a safe workaround.
