Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I am using the fields_view_get function to change certain properties of the form. However, I am facing 2 issues:
1) the fields_view_get function gets invoked everytime when I click on tree view but only the first time when I click on form view . I want it to be invoked each time I click on the form view.
2) Using context.get('active_ids') always returns None, when I use it inside fields_view_get.
def fields_view_get(self, cr, uid, view_id=None, view_type=False, context=None, toolbar=False, submenu=False):
res = super(hr_travel_allowance_request, self).fields_view_get(cr, uid, view_id=view_id, view_type=view_type, context=context, toolbar=toolbar,submenu=submenu)
Is there something I am doing wrong when I invoke it?
P.S. Please tell me how to add formatted code to my question. I couldn't find an option to do it.
What you have noticed is correct...
"fields_view_get", is method which will be called only once, that is to load the view, as the name indicates, it will load the XML view & the fields associated to that object...
once the view is loaded, then the datas are fetched from database, after that the view is unaltered...
So when you open a form, only once the function will be evoked... So does in the case of tree view, however since you click on the action menu, it is like evoking the action newly, inturn it will evoke the "field_view_get" again, seeming it look like it is called repeatedly, but technically it is no, ...
Thank you for the response. However, I have also observed that when I select the 'Tree' view from the available modes on the right side, the fields_view_get gets invoked each time. But it does not happen in the case of form view. Also, do you know how to get the context.get('active_ids') to work properly?
