How to emulate radio button using checkboxes in OpenERP7?

Hi there:

I want to show two options in a form (OpenERP7). User can only select one of the options. I know OpenERP7 doesn't have radio buttons, so I thought I could try using checkboxes (boolean fields). The idea was define an onchange method for a checkbox (i.e. for the boolean field), and in that event I wanted to return the value for the other checkbox (boolean field). I was debugging the onchange event: it never was hit!!

So, how to unmark one checkbox when the other was marked?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Yuly!

In order to emulate radio buttons, an easy way would be to use "attrs" with"readonly" attributes to force select only one of the 2 options.

You can add to your model 2 boolean fields representing the 2 exclusive options then create an inherited form view as follows:

                            <field name="x_option1" attrs="{'readonly': [('x_option2','=', True)]}"/>
                            <field name="x_option2" attrs="{'readonly': [('x_option1','=', True)]}"/>

Now when you try to select an option in the form view, the other one is made readonly and vice-versa.

Hope it helps.

Regards

Hi buddy. First, thanks for your solution. It is not exactly what I was looking for, but I like it. I wanted to uncheck the checkbox, not hide it. Thanks for your replay.
