Hi guys

Im trying to override odoo 9 sale.order create method, so that only products belonging to the same category can be sold:

    from openerp import api

    from openerp.osv import fields, osv

    import vatnumber

    from openerp.tools.translate import _

    from openerp.exceptions import UserError, ValidationError

    class sale_order(osv.osv):

        _inherit = "sale.order"


       def create(self, vals):



           if vals.get('name', 'New') == 'New':

               if vals.get('order_line'):


                   for l in order_lines_vals:

                       for value in l:

                           if isinstance(value, dict):


               if product_ids:

                   for j in self.env['product.product'].browse(product_ids):



                   if len(product_categ_ids) > 1:

                       raise ValidationError(_("Is not possible to add products belonging to more than one category!"))

       result = super(SaleOrder, self).create(vals)

       return result

Everything works fine except the error, record is not created but no popup window error is displayed,,,,,does anyone know how to handle correctly with exceptions in odoo 9?

Thanks in advance

Hello Diego Calzadilla,

First of all you are inherited sale order in v7 style.

for v9 you have to inherit as following:

     class SaleOrder(models.Model):

         _name = 'sale.order'

Here your code seems fine except that super call, in super call you have to mention class name.

so as per your code, super call must be like

    super(sale_order, self).create(vals)
