You mean you want to create colors that have values other than the default values defined by openERP?

try adding the custom color you want to:


in the var colorData = { section

you can then assign that color to your fields using the xml color ="" tag

I can't find the file : web/addons/web_graph/static/lib/flotr2/lib/excanvas.js howerer I have not access to source files, Openerp is installed in the server not in my machine !!!

If you want to create custom options like this you must have access to the server.

Have a look on this blog: colors & styles in openerp

I want to folow what is in this blog, but I can't apply the patch to server’s file because I have not access to source files, Openerp is installed in the server not in my machine !!!

Customizing fields colors by users is not supported by openerp. It's need modification in the source files.
