How to easily modify a view

on 1/15/14, 9:02 AM 1,061 views

Hi everybody,

I am currently testing openerp7. It is amazing. I used openerp since version 5.

I think it is possible by modifying the right file in >technicall > user interface ... as before in the GTK client.

Previously it was possible to slightly modify a view dynamically and easily with the web interface. Is it still possible with version 7 ?

Thanks for you help.



Yes, it's possible also with v7:

Enable the developer mode by clicking the user name on the top right corner and selecting About OpenERP -> Activate the developer mode. Now go to the view you want to edit, and a new Debug view dropdown menu should have appeared.

Select the appropriate view type from that dropdown, and you will be a shown an XML view that you can edit directly.
