I'm using windows7 and addons are in C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenERP 7.0-20130921-231041\Server\server\openerp
I changed a label on Quotation at "Edit FormView" and put a comment like below
But when I open sale_view.xml under C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenERP 7.0-20130921-231041\Server\server\openerp\addons\sale, I couldn't find the change
I have even do a window search the whole addons folder on the comment I put, i.e. and get no luck. Can someone educate me:
how to modify the xml directly in windows instead of using only the web based tool to modify the view?
where are the changes saved after editing views using web based tool as below?
When you edit views via OpenERP, your changes are saved in the database and not the file.
When you edit an XML views file, you need to update the module associated with that file ( from the modules list ) , so that the new changes are saved to the database.
What's advised is that you create your own module, inherit the view you want to change and then apply changes to it as you wish.
