I'm trying to make a product field (internal reference - default_code) display a list of already entered references while typing. More exactly, I would like that when I start typing a new 'reference' to have a list displayed with previously entered 'references' that match what I have typed so far. Something like the Customers -> Create -> Company name field.
I'm a beginner with odoo and i can't figure it out how to change the default_code field. From what i've seen on the forum I suspect that i need to make it a many2one field. I tried a few ideas, but none of them work.
Thank you for the help.
Having a display of pre-existent record, is using the foreign key in Db. In Odoo, we call it many2one, Referring to the another table.
The default code is a character field and hence its an 'input' freetext from end user. So, its hard for you to straight away to display previous entries.
In order to make a many2one field, you can make a model called product.code. Add fields like name and code! Convert the field of default_code to many2one referring to product.code. You can refer to the source code of product.uom model and closely reuse the functionality you want.
