Hello Everyonne!!!!!!!! i am in need of urgent help. I want to display the view according to a particular values of a record.For this purpose i used the function fields_view_get() but as u know we cannot access the current record id in this functions. When i use this method i get the context as None or an empty dictionary.I do not get the key of 'active_id' .Hence i cannot use context.get('active_id').So is there a way to update this context with the acitve_id or the current record id.I have seen other posts but either the steps given are not clear or they are actually not working

Please I am in urgent need Thanx in advance Regards Shivam Goyal

Hi!!! Prakash....thank you for the interest shown. the link that u have sent me does not work or may be i am doing sthing wronng .I request you to plz guide me into it. What i did is in the form view of sale.order i added the field "order_id" but not specifically where it is given in the link but somewhere in the sale_order form view only, which i think won't matter.I added the "order_id" field after the "name" field using xpath Obviously i have declared this field in _columns also.I added the _defauts line exactly as given in the link So in the xml it goes like this

<xpath expr "////xxx/fields[@name="name"]" postion="after">
       <field name="order_id" context="{'order_id': active_id}"/>

This is what i did exactly but when my fields_view_get() is called my context does not have "order_id" key. I am new to openerp.Please guide me if i have got it all wrong or whether i am missing something which i dont know

Best Regards Shivam Goyal

you added context active_id using xml path using position after tag. I think need to use replace tag.

So you are saying i should replace the "name" fields in sales_order form with order_id?
