How to add new status to statusbar

on 2/20/15, 2:05 PM 768 views

I'm trying to add a new status to the statusbar in my quotations. 

The new status I want to add is "lost". So I've made a custom class for it, inherited from sale.order, copied the states from sale.order and added my own to it so it looks like this:

_inherit = 'sale.order' 
_columns = { 'state': fields.selection([ ('draft', 'Draft Quotation'),
('sent', 'Quotation Sent'),
('cancel', 'Cancelled'),
('lost', 'Lost'),
('waiting_date', 'Waiting Schedule'),
('progress', 'Sales Order'),
('manual', 'Sale to Invoice'),
('invoice_except', 'Invoice Exception'),
('done', 'Done'), ],
'Status', readonly=True, track_visibility='onchange', help="Gives the status of the quotation or sales order. \nThe exception status is automatically set when a " "cancel operation occurs in the processing of a document linked to the sales order. \nThe 'Waiting " "Schedule' status is set when the invoice is confirmed but waiting for the scheduler to run on the " "order date.", select=True) }

Then I proceeded to add it to the xml, I thought I just needed to do this:

<record id="view_order_form" model="ir.ui.view">
<field name="name">sale.order.form</field>
<field name="model">sale.order</field>
<field name="arch" type="xml">
<form string="Sales Order" version="7.0">
<field name="state" widget="statusbar" statusbar_visible="draft,sent,progress,lost,done" statusbar_colors='{"invoice_except":"red","waiting_date":"blue"}'/>

Any tips on what I'm doing wrong? Thanks

You were did correct pyton code to add new state into status bar. But you have to inherit view of the sale order to see new status on the status bar. Over here you have not inherit main view of sale order. Please make your view as like below.

<record id="view_order_form_add_new_status" model="ir.ui.view">
<field name="name">sale.order.form.add.new.status</field>
<field name="model">sale.order</field>
<field name="inherit" ref="sale.view_order_form" />

<field name="arch" type="xml">
<field name="state" position="replace">

<field name="state" widget="statusbar" statusbar_visible="draft,sent,progress,lost,done" statusbar_colors='{"invoice_except":"red","waiting_date":"blue"}'/>

I hope you will get as your requirement.
