Hi, is it possible to possible to change the column header string in the one2many field display though the xml. I would like to do this this i can use the same field at multiple places where only the column header string differs.


Found it myself, just define the tree view and use the string attribute for the field.

eg. if abc is a one2manyfield with the label of employee_id needed to be changed then in the xml

  <field name="abc">
    <field name="employee_id string="Volunteer Name"/>

This will display the header as Volunteer Name
