How to call a wizard prior to showing the tree view?

Emil Dela Cruz

Please help. I've been working on a new tree view to show a custom list of stock consumption. Prior to showing the view, I need to delete all the existing records so that I can re-populate it with new data based on an input from a wizard (which asks for a year input).

I've managed to create the view and the wizard (ask year input and repopulate the table with new data). Below are my issues:

1. How can I properly delete the old records from the table?

2. How to call the wizard before the view is shown (from clicking the "Stock Consumption" menu item from Reporting menu of Inventory module). Where do I "put" it?

3. How to call the view after selecting (and processing) the wizard? Also, where do I "put" the code?

I'm using Odoo Enterprise v.12 by the way. Thank you in advance!

Below are the codes:

For calling wizard directly from the menu, you can see this video : How To Call Wizard From Menu Item Odoo

Sample Code:

 <record id="create_appointment_form" model="ir.ui.view">
<field name="name">create.appointment.wizard</field>
<field name="model">create.appointment</field>
<field name="arch" type="xml">
<form string="Create Appointment">
<field name="patient_id"/>
<field name="appointment_date"/>
<button name="print_report" string="Print" type="object" class="btn-primary"/>
<button name="create_appointment" string="Create" type="object" class="btn-primary"/>
<button name="get_data" string="Get Data" type="object" class="btn-primary"/>
<button name="delete_patient" string="Delete Patient" type="object" class="btn-primary"/>
<button string="Cancel" class="btn-secondary" special="cancel"/>

<record id="create_appointment_wizard" model="ir.actions.act_window">
<field name="name">Create Appointment</field>
<field name="type">ir.actions.act_window</field>
<field name="res_model">create.appointment</field>
<field name="view_mode">form</field>
<field name="view_id" ref="create_appointment_form"/>
<field name="target">new</field>

In the wizard you can ask user for entering some data and from here you can return the corresponding view after deleting old records or by adding domain to records.

For deleting records(if needed), you can use self.unlink()

Hello Niyas,

Thank you! So I managed to call the wizard prior to showing the view. However I still cannot delete the old records in the table after I select the "year" from the wizard.

What I need to do is when I select the "year" from the input selection in the wizard, all previous records from the stock.consumption table are to be deleted. Then based on the year of the transactions from the stock.move.line table, copy those records into the stock.consumption table if the transaction year is equal to the selected "year" from the wizard.

I added below code inside the do_filter_year function which is what's called after selecting the "year" to delete the records but they are not being deleted, new records are just being added:


def do_filter_year(self):

if self.filter_year:

# delete stock consumption records

stocks = self.env['stock.consumption'].search([('state','=','active')])

for stock in stocks:

stock['state'] = 'cancel'
