Create selection type field dynamically?

on 9/24/14, 2:16 PM 3,012 views

Is it possible to dynamically create selection type field using functional fields? 

For Example : I am having a maximum limit of leaves a person can take at one type

Casual Leave : 2

Sick Leave : 3

User can take these leave with 0.5 interval, means for CL 0.5,1,1.5 and 2

I am having around 10 types of leaves.

So is it possiblt to create a selection type field dynamically in OpenERP?

You can use many2one with domain for this purpose.

You need create object "Leave" like:

    _columns = {
        'name': fields.char('Leave'),
        'type': fields.char('Type'),
        'interval': fields.char('interval'),

Then create records for "Leave" with all available combination type and interval.

In object, where you need selection field, define instead many2one to "Leave" object (for example: leave_id).
And define selection filed for type (for example: type).
Now you can dinamically select available leaves, depend from type, like:

    <field name="type"/>
    <field name="leave_id" domain="[('type','=',type)]"/>
