How to register a parser for a qweb report

on 9/26/15, 2:02 PM 1,621 views


I have the following report defined:

string="Custom invoice report"
attachment = "(object.state in ('open','paid')) and ('F_'+(object.number or '').replace('/','')+'.pdf')"

And I am defining a new parser for it:

from openerp.report import report_sxw
from openerp.osv import osv
from openerp import api

class invoice_parser(report_sxw.rml_parse):

def __init__(self, cr, uid, name, context):
super(invoice_parser, self).__init__(cr, uid, name, context=context)
'select_value': self._selection_value,

def _selection_value(self, value):
if value:
tax_pool = self.pool.get('account.tax')
tax_ids = tax_pool.search(self.cr, self.uid, [('name', '=', value)])
if tax_ids:
tax_id = tax_pool.browse(self.cr, self.uid, tax_ids[0])
return self._translate(tax_id.description)
return value

class report_custom_invoice_parser(osv.AbstractModel):
_name = 'report.module.invoice.wrapper'
_inherit = 'report.abstract_report'
_template = 'custom_reports.invoice_custom'
_wrapped_report_class = invoice_parser

If I understood how parsers work, I guess I have to add something similar to the following code to register the parser:

parser= select_value )

Could someone help me to understand how to register the parser?

In order for the parser to be picked by Odoo and according for your example you need to define it like this:

class report_custom_invoice_parser(osv.AbstractModel):
_name = 'report.custom_reports.invoice_custom'
_inherit = 'report.abstract_report'
_template = 'custom_reports.invoice_custom'
_wrapped_report_class = invoice_parser

So simple, thanks!!

Hi Sir @Axel, why I always got an error that the _name attrbiute is invalid wherein that's the name I defines in my report? But when I remove the module name, dont have an error but the function I created is not callable.
