Default view filter Group and Order

on 2/29/16, 1:53 PM 781 views


I'm trying without success order and group by a tree view.
I defined action window with this context:

context="{'order_by':'start_datetime desc', 'group_by':'start_datetime:day'}"

I get a grouped tree view by day but not with the inverse order.

Can't group and order fields on and unfiltered view pressing header column buttons and grouping.

¿Posible bug in data.js?

Hello Aj,

For order_by, You can write when your model is define


class CustomClass(models.Model):

     _name = 'custom.class'

     _order = 'start_datetime desc'

For group_by, You can write search record for start_datetime


<record id="custom_class_search_view" model="ir.ui.view">

    <field name="name">custom.class.search.view</field>

    <field name="model">custom.class</field>

    <field name="arch" type="xml">

        <search string="Custom Class">       

            <filter name="group_start_datetime" string="Start time icon="terp-partner" context="{'group_by':'start_datetime'}"/>




Now You can pass in context of action as follow :-

<field name="context">{'search_default_group_start_datetime': 1}</field>

Hope it helps you.
