Can users switch One2Many editable tree to form?

Avatar

In pre-V7, it was possible for users to switch one2many fields views using small icons on top like those of the main view. I do not know how to get this functionality in v7.

I noted that many views include both <tree> and <form> in the <field> tag. Sale order line uses either tree or form view based in group, but in most other object, the form view is not used at all. Is it possible to allow users to edit using the form view through the web interface, possibly with an action button.

Update:

As per the comments below, it is not currently possible in OpenERP v7.0.


This feature is possible by adding mode attribute in one2many fields.

<field name="order_line" mode="tree,form">

or

<field name="child_ids" mode="kanban,tree">

This does not work in OpenERP 7.0; I got the Javascript exception Uncaught Error: View type 'form' is not supported in One2Many

You should define the form tag for the One2many field.

It is defined. I'm trying to modify the account.bank.statement form view which has form tag defined for the line_ids field. I think o2m forms are no longer supported in OpenERP 7.0. I did not seen any o2m forms in official addons (yet).

you are right, it is possible only to switch between tree and kanban views.
