@Sairam.  Unfortunately readonly fields are implemented INPUT tag with disabled attribute turned on (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/Input) and thus will not be submitted to the server.

Now, if a field is readonly, usually it won't be changed by the user anyway, so the only possibilities, that I can think, of the value dynamically changed will be due to default or on change mechanism.

If it is due to default (specified in the default_get method or _default attribute of ORM).  You can just create/write without the value of that field.  ORM will automatically get the value from the default mechanism.

If it is due to on change mechanism, you can, by inheriting the write and/or create method, obtain the value of the field from the return of the on change method.

bad thing, but use a direct database request ...

or set your field invisible and not readonly and add a field function which change its value depending the value of your invisible field.

You can easily access readonly fields on the server throught the context like this:

Got the solution by changing the code in base files readonly values will get in create ,write methods so the it will store in database


In view_form.js:

in line: 840:

if (!f.get("readonly")) {

values[f.name] = f.get_value(); }

else { readonly_values[f.name] = f.get_value(); }

values[f.name] = f.get_value();

if (f.get("readonly"))

readonly_values[f.name] = f.get_value();
