Create Module & Widget

on 8/13/13, 2:14 PM 2,132 views


I've created a module inside the "backoffice" of OpenERP v7, everything fine. Although, I would like to know where are the files stored (if they are even created) ??

When I'm adding a field to a form, I only get 2 widgets: mail_thread & many2many_tags_emails. Shouldn't be appearing "Image; Binary, Char" ??

Well. I'm not sure about how did you created a module in the backoffice. Anyways if you make changes on the Configuration Page. They are going to be stored only in the database. If you want to create a real module you have to do it by code, create your files and then upload it to your server.

Not quite sure what you are looking for in terms of the files. However, if you have created a new model via the internet, the information is stored in the database. If you have created a new view within the developer mode, that too is stored in the database. As far as I remember, only if you write the python module code and XML view manually, do you get locally stored files. Otherwise I believe the customisation done in the system is stored in database, including the XML views.

The widgets are based on field type:

text, selection etc. You don't need to select the widget.

Hello, I'll show you what's happening by pictures.

Image 2 -> Selecting the file (Why does it appear to save it?) http://postimg.org/image/3mt7hkfi5/

Image 3 -> Download the file http://postimg.org/image/4dlxnchvh/

Image 4 -> When downloading the file, it appears that name without extension! (So, to open the file, I should remember which type of file it is..imagine if I have 1000 files...) http://postimg.org/image/54ent4k8t/

How can I solve it? thanks
