How to add optional attributes to a field via the GUI in V9?

Hello all,

By using the GUI, how can you add optional attributes to a field?

I have built a custom model using the GUI interface.

model name: x_revenue_milestone

model String: Revenue Milestones

The model has three custom fields:

x_name : char(300)

x_funds: monetary

x_description: text

Obviously as the monetary field relies on 'currency_id', it either requires that field to be defined, or to have an optional parameter set.

As only custom fields are permitted, I have created the follow:

field identifier: x_currency_id

field name: Currency

Relation: rel.currency

I need to set the 'x_funds' optional parameter to:

optional: currency_field='x_currency_id'

I can't figure out how to set this via the GUI.

The only options are:

Field Name:

Field Label:

Field Help:

Field Type:

Serialization Field

Related Field:



Has anybody succeeded in adding a monetary field to a custom model via the GUI?

Is there any documentation on how to edit models/fields in the GUI. There is not one tutorial/book/document/stack overflow question that I can find on the web.
