on 3/28/13, 7:16 AM 23,812 views

Friends, Need to remove this option from pop up manyone fields. (not in all fields.some fields need to remove this feature).i used widget="selection".then my domain filter not working.so please help me to find a solution.

create and edit

Hi ,

Perhaps you can use text widget , such as <field name="division_id" /> with nothing specified in the field tag.

But in the first place why do u want to remove it ? and what do you mean by domain filter not working ? (the model that you are working on or the one2many field e.g. division that show in your screen that is not working ?

I reopen this question because priyankahdp link is out, and I think no answer have been written.

So, For this need, I wrote a new OpenERP V7 module web_m2o_enhanced that add some options tu many2one field xml definition:

  • create: true/false -> disable "create" entry in dropdown panel
  • create_edit: true/false -> disable "create and edit" entry in dropdown panel
  • limit: 10 (int) -> change number of selected record return in dropdown panel
  • m2o_dialog: true/false -> disable quick create M20Dialog triggered on error.


<field name="partner_id" options="{'limit': 10, 'create': false, 'create_edit': false}"/>

you can clone it from github web_m2o_enhanced repo


  • 29/05/2013: we add using of access right to show create or create and edit if you what write access on linked object by default.
  • Openerp provide by default a no_open option to disable right edit item for many2one widget.
  • 23/09/2013: Be sure to reload openerp web page after installing this module and have an empty javascript cache !
  • 15/10/2013: Now support many2manytag widget ! (OpenERP help)
  • 2/12/2013: Now in community modules: https://www.openerp.com/apps/7.0/web_m2x_options/

thanks so much dear Nicolas

Nicolas you should be knighted for this, I have started working on the exact same module and to see it written is a relief! Thank you for the wonderful contribution, the need for this module is pretty high!

One thing though, when typing something in the many2one that does not exist on the other side and pressing tab (field losing focus) a quick-create form pops up that yet again enabled the user to create the object himself.Do you know if anything could be done about that?

Sincere regards! Paul

Paul, m2o_dialog option do this. set it to false and no dialog box will appear if many2one value does not existe.

Thank you very much Nicolas, I really had no idea about that option.Hope they will implement your design in the core, you should ask for a merge or something it's very useful stuff.Thanks again!

One last question, the edit button on the right after you have chosen an object in the many2one.That allows you to edit the record chosen even if you do not have write privileges on that object.Any idea what can be done with that?

Paul Catinean
on 5/29/13, 5:40 AM

Yes, you CAN use no_open options and SET to false

We update this module to use right access to show or not some items (create, create and edit). We test it with a sale order for a salesman that can only show partner but not créate it.

Tuxservices, Jeudy Nicolas
on 5/30/13, 3:15 PM

you can use options no_open and set to false if you don't want to see right edit button on right

To use this code ou must install web_m2o_enhanced module reload you javascript cache and test this on a form. Be carreful: with inherit system some other form can remove you spécial setup.

Hi Boris,

U can try adding an attribute "options" to the field where u want to hide "create and edit" option in xml file as:

< field name=[name] options="{'no_quick_create':True,'no_create_edit':True}"/>

This will possibly solve your problem.


this feature is available for Odoo8 by default but not in Odoo 7.

Hello all,

just add no_open, no_create, no_create_edit, in options

<field name="partner_id" options='{"no_open": True,"no_create": 1, "no_create_edit": 1}'/>

I tried it and it is working fine.

>=8.0 works fine and its the best option.

Can you add a debugger in the get_search_result function in the static/src/js/form.js file ?

Tuxservices, Jeudy Nicolas
on 11/11/13, 4:22 PM


can you add debugger in the static/src/js/form.js on the first line of get_search_result function ? If the code is load, and if you use debug mode, you have to be paused in debugger line .., else, the code is not load so, we have to find why :)

Hi, I'm getting the same result here; "create" "create and edit" links are shown on drop down menu. I'm in debug mode, added the breakpoint, but program is not paused there. Also if I click on "create" nothing happens...

on 11/12/13, 7:21 AM

Ok, I suppose you use the last version of OpenERP v7 ? I will check it out and test with a new database to see if it works. did you you to restart OpenERP server after intsalling module ?

Tuxservices, Jeudy Nicolas
on 11/12/13, 12:14 PM

Yes I'm on v7. Have tried every combination today, restarted server, de-install/install module, changed option parameters but no effect..

on 11/13/13, 4:56 AM

ok, on windows or linux ? I will try with standard V7

Hi elepe,

I install the module on a fresh openerp 7 instance. I reload, restart the server and all is working fine.

  • Can you double check that no other module inherit your view a remote your options ?
  • Can you paste the view you edit to see if I can help you. ?
Tuxservices, Jeudy Nicolas
on 11/15/13, 3:58 PM

Hello, I have updated your module, but still the same result. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, so here is my view:

<record id="product_normal_form_view_intrastat" model="ir.ui.view"> <field name="name">product.normal.form.intrastat</field> <field name="model">product.product</field> <field name="inherit_id" ref="product.product_normal_form_view"/> <field name="arch" type="xml"> <field name="product_manager" position="after"> <field name="intrastat_id" options="{'create': false, 'create_edit': false}"/> </field> </field> </record>

on 11/18/13, 5:46 AM

I will check on my install to see what is wrong .. I think this view is update by an other after your mods. you use a personnal module ? can you say where you define intrastat_id ? Can you check on an other field that this works ? Can you check in debug mode and using your browser debug tools that web_m2o_enahnced js is correctly load ?

Tuxservices, Jeudy Nicolas

&lt;field name="default_payprofile_id" options='{"no_open": True, "create":False, "create_edit": False}' /&gt;
