How to pass a value from a class to an other class?

Hello all of you,

I would need to understand a new concept...

See example first class :

class report_saleslines_pt(models.AbstractModel):

    _name = 'report.point_of_sale.report_saleslines'
    _template = 'point_of_sale.report_saleslines'

    def render_html(self, data=None):
       report.choosen_paper = a_number_or_object

We have a second class.

class Report(osv.Model):
    _inherit = "report"
    _name = "report"
    _description = "Report"

    def get_pdf(self, cr, uid, ids, report_name, html=None, data=None, context=None):
        paper = report.choosen_paper


Our two classes work well and are well declared (I didn't paste all the code).

How could I give a value to report.choosen_paper in the class report_saleslines_pt and after recup this value in get_pdf() from the class report?

How to exchange temp value beetqween classes?

Do you understand what I mean?

Thanks for words or idea.



See example first class :

class report_saleslines_pt(models.AbstractModel):

    _name = 'report.point_of_sale.report_saleslines'
    _template = 'point_of_sale.report_saleslines'

    def render_html(self, data=None):


We have a second class.

class Report(osv.Model):
    _inherit = "report"
    _name = "report"
    _description = "Report"

    def get_pdf(self, cr, uid, ids, report_name, html=None, data=None, context=None):  

         _logger.error("REPORT_LAPAGEPT :: %s %s", 'CONTEXT :: ', context)

I can now see the context in my log. But still NO trace of exchangeVAR in the context.


I don't want to change any value in the database. I just want a kind of global value.

I have printed this : https://www.odoo.com/fr_FR/forum/help-1/question/whats-the-context-2236 Trying it. Thanks

Not able to modify context in render_html. ANd make this context the same than in get_pdf

@Pascal, see how works get_pdf(). In first step (on begining) call self.get_html(). In get_html() I see ... return particularreport_obj.render_html() ... render_html() you inherit... context propagates in the opposite direction

Thanks A LOT!!!!! Again! I have learned many important concepts. I will publish my code soon.
