Confirm message dialog from Python code

on 12/22/14, 2:32 PM 2,934 views

Hello, I am developing a new module in Odoo 8.

I need to display a confirm message (I see that I can do this adding the confirm="confirm message" in button XML) from the Python code, in a method.

For example: I override the create method of sale.order model.  I want to check if the total of the sale is under X value. If the value > X, I display a confirm message like "Do you really confirm this sale?" and catch the button pressed for the user to decide what action I do.


So what is your question?

My question is, how can I display the message from Python code and how can I catch the button pressed by the user?

AFAIK, this is a feature lacking in Odoo.  If you want to stop the processing forward (not a confirmation but a validation that stops the processing from moving forward) you can raise an exception.  But I am not aware of anyway to display a confirmation message that user can choose to go forward or not.  You can display a warning message using on_change (e.g. when the sale order line is changed, trap it using on_change, then calculate the total sales value and if it is more than X, then display a warning message).

Yes you can do that.. using a wizzard
This approach needs the method to be split in parts (before,during and after wizard)
Steps you need to do

1. create you custom method, make some computation/data colection
;then create a record in transient model and return wizard wiev for created record
2. in wizard display whatever user needs to make a choice
3. accoring to choice continue or cancel futrher actions...

hope it helps....

Bole: I have created the method, and the wizard (py and xml files). How can I display the wizard message and catch the result from Python code?

Ivan: the warning message not helps me because this stops the execution of the method.
