How to add records to one2many field using onchange event

on 5/23/13, 6:22 AM 15,550 views

In stock.picking form, I would like to know how can I add an item to the one2many field move_lines using an onchange event on the partner_id field.

Both of the field with the onchange event and the one2many field that needs to add records belongs to the same class

Hi Aldennis

suppose your one2manyfield name is my_field then

define list in first ex .. r=[]


r.append({'first_field_ino2m':'my vlaue','second......':'my second value'})

you can add more field availble in That one2manyobject for another record just continuous append same after all append completed just add rinmy_field':r,

exm. vals.update({'my_field':r})


This solution allows you to use the on_change even if you just clicked create and haven't saved your record yet. +1 and setted as accepted answerd. Thanks Sandeep

You need to return all IDs in one list with your one2many field in values.


return {'value': {'your_one2many_field': list_of_ids}}

For example my_emp_ids is my one2many field of hr.employee and I want to fill it when I will select Department. I want all employees of selected Depratment.

def onchange_department(self, cr, uid, deprt_id):
    employee_ids = self.search(cr, uid, [('department_id', '=', deprt_id)])
    return {'value': {'my_emp_ids': employee_ids}}

I've tried your code , it's working . but the employee filled is not based on their department , but based on the id of class that contain deprt_id . Example : in my departments , Admin have ID 1 , Programmer have ID 2 , Engineer have ID 3 . When I choose Programmer Department , the printed employees on my_emp_ids is not programmer dept employee , but Admin dept employee . When I checked on PostgreSQL Database , the deprt_id shows correct id ( same id with department_id ) . I assume that the printed employee based on id of deprt_id and not the deprt_id . Am I making mistake ? please help
