Hi everyone,

I have a field datetime. This field should have by default the datetime of "now", the current time.

However, the default date is the time of the lastest restart.

Please find below my code:

'date_action': fields.datetime('Date current action', required=False, readonly=False, select=True),

_defaults = {
    'date_action': fields.datetime.now(),


Someones has an idea why? And how to solve it?

Many thanks,


Selverine

In V8 or above, if the class definition is as per latest api, i.e (models.Model)

then use the below like syntax, no need to import any date-related files.


date_action = fields.Datetime('Date current action', required=False, readonly=False, select=True
                                , default=lambda self: fields.datetime.now())




It works

For v8/v9: You have not defined the field correctly, not using a CAPITAL for Datetime:


'date_action': fields.Datetime('Date current action', required=False, readonly=False, select=True),


For v7: You are mixing the API functions.

Try:

from openerp.osv import fields, osv
from openerp.tools import DEFAULT_SERVER_DATE_FORMAT

date.today().strftime(DEFAULT_SERVER_DATE_FORMAT)

Hi Ray. Thank you for your answer. I tried with Capital for Datetime but I have the error: AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'Datetime'. Do I need to import a specific class? PS: I am using OpenERP 7 ( sorry to forgot to mention it)

For finding current time use below code.


import time

local = time.asctime(time.localtime())

print "Current time is : ",local
