I created a tree view in xml. How can I specify the field that should be used as sorting field (and add if it should be ascending or descending)? Right now, I think the database ID is used, but I didn't specify that.




Odoo is taking "_order" member to manage default order by. So, you have to just manage "_order" member of your model. You will get all data in your list according to that order. thats it. I hope it will help you.
