Change skin of OpenERP in runtime ?

on 11/12/13, 4:02 AM 2,976 views

I have multi company. I want to have different color theme (different colors for some elements) for each company in my configuration (i added fields to res_company that will contain elements colors). Users can switch their companies, and then user changed company (click top right menu -> preferences -> change company -> save) i want to change color for some elements for him (top menu background color, left menu back color, menu font color....).

what is the best way to do that ?

var apply_theme = function(instance)
        new instance.web.Model('res.users')
            .filter([['id', '=', instance.session.user_context.uid]])
            .then(function (user) {
                    new instance.web.Model('res.company')
                        .filter([['id', '=', user.company_id[0]]])
                        .then(function (company) {
                                    $('td.oe_topbar').css('background', company.theme_color_menu_back);

openerp.my_base_ext = function(instance){

    var module = instance.web; // loading the namespace


        start: function() {
