Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I use odoo8 with old api for the moment.
I have created an xls file and stored it in ir_attachment.
Now i need to download it so the client user can choose to download it in a selected local location or ope the xls file using microsoft excel or any app which can open xls file.
I can see Odoo is using saveas and saveas_ajax, but i'm not able to make that work (not much details on passing data to those methods).
So the question is:
how to download the xls file in a location that needs to be chosen by the web user?
or how to write the xls file locally to client side in a location that is chosen by the client user?
Many thanks in advance!
After creating the record in ir.attachment you can return:
new_attach = attachment_obj.create(cr, uid, attachment_data)
'type' : 'ir.actions.act_url',
'url': '/web/binary/saveas?model=ir.attachment&field=datas&filename_field=name&id=%s' % ( new_attach, ),
Where new_attach is the id of the new created record in ir.attachment.
The result is the open/save file windows dialog.
