Does @api.depends recognize computed fields?

I have a problem in my code, a compute method is not triggered each time a computed field should trigger it.I put an example:


@api.depends('child_ids', 'child_ids.computed_field', 'child_ids.normal_field')

def compute_depending_field(self):


Each time child_ids.computed_field changes, @api.depends should trigger the compute_depending_field method, but this is not happening. However, when the other fields of the decorator change, the method is executed.

I did some tests with @api.depends depending on computed fields of one2many fields (like child_ids) and they are not triggering the methods.

Hello Juan,

In the depends, you want to put those fields which is affected to your compute fields.

For Ex :- I have three fields, like weight, price and total and total is computed field to price and total so now i put weight and price in the depends not the total field.

Hope this will helps you.
