Enable to select an entity on one2many list

Hi !

I've created a simple module on Odoo v8, with two objects:

        class repas(osv.osv):
            _name = 'repas'
            _description = 'Repas de chocapic'
            _columns = {
                'name': fields.char('Nom'),
                'quantity' : fields.integer(u'Quantité'),
                'bol_id': fields.many2one('bol',u'Bol utilisé'),
            _defaults = {
                'quantity': 0, 

        class bol(osv.osv):
            _name = 'bol'
            _columns = {
                'name': fields.char('Nom de mon bol'),
                'repas_ids': fields.one2many('repas','bol_id','Repas'),

With this view:

        <record id="bol_form_view" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">bol.form</field>
            <field name="model">bol</field>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <form string="Bol">
                            <field name="name"/>
                            <field name="repas_ids"/>

When I create a "bol", I can't select an existing "repas" and I must create one, but I've a one2many relation on this !

Anyone have this problem too ? Or a solution ?

Thank you

Florent, one2many relation field is meant for you to create a new record instead of attaching something that has been created beforehand.  If you require to attach some pre-created record to a one2many field, try to use widget="many2many_list" in the <field name="repas_ids"/> in your view.
