How to make One2Many widget "unclickable"

on 4/10/13, 12:30 PM 5,265 views

Hi, I'm trying to make a custom view for users with very limited access rights that contains a One2Many widget. The widget is readOnly so they can't edit anything but the problem is that they can still click on the lines and the detail is shown with more information, that they should not be able to see. It would be fine if the lines of widget were text lines..is it possible?

(I'm using OpenERP 6.1)

Set the one2many field as readonly and nobody will can use it.

<field name="your_o2m" readonly="1" />

as I said...it already is readonly, but users are still able to click on the lines and popup with details is shown....which I want to forbid

Set the o2m as editable so it doesn't show any popup. <field name="your_o2m" readonly="1" editable="top"/>

You can use the options - no_open, to set the field in read mode: do not render as a link.

For example:

<field name="field_name" options="{'no_create': True}"/>

<field name="field_m2o" options="{'no_create': True}" />

can delete "create and edit" option and let you search in selection

Hi (i'm new in Odoo) i think i found a workaround. Instead of remove the "clickable" behavior, i redefined the view form for this field. By this way i can filter what the user can see!

In this example, i want to show only  the field "name", and "facture_id" of my model Facture; i dont want people to see the price and other field when they clicked on field facture_ids.

So here is my code : 

<field name="facture_ids" widget="one2many_list"  readonly="1" >

    <tree editable="top">

        <field name="patient"/>

        <field name="facture_id" />




            <field name="name"/>

            <field name="facture_id" />

I think it's not possible. For workaround I use functional field with type='char' to only show the value of original field. I make functional field visible for users with limited access rights and invisible for normal users and vice versa visibility for original field.
