How to use acive_id on fields_view_get ?

on 6/11/13, 6:31 PM 4,359 views

Hi, I'm using fields_view_get method for overriding a treeview, every thing is fine but when I try to get the active_id to return the value of the current record, it returns False, this is my code :

class res_partner(osv.osv):

_inherit = 'res.partner'

def fields_view_get(self, cr, uid, view_id=None, view_type='tree', context=None, toolbar=False, submenu=False):

    if context is None:
        context = {}

    res = super(res_partner,self).fields_view_get(cr, uid, view_id=view_id, view_type=view_type, context=context, toolbar=toolbar, submenu=submenu)

    partner_obj = self.pool.get('res.partner')
    active_id = context.get('active_id', False)
    partner_name = partner_obj.browse(cr, uid, active_id, context=context).numcte
    partner_icon = partner_name
    print partner_icon  
    print active_id

    doc = etree.XML(res['arch'])

    if view_type == 'tree':

        for node in doc.xpath("//button[@name='icono']"):
               node.set('icon', partner_icon)   

    res['arch'] = etree.tostring(doc)
    return res

_columns = {
    'numcte': fields.text('numero cliente'),


thanks, for your advice.

For your specific case you should override "read". 

"fields_view_get" does not have information about the current record, what you could if you want to is pass through context the id, but it's not the best, use "read".


def read(self, fields=None, load='_classic_read'):

I know that there is no active_id when you are calling a tree, I use that when i select some rows on a tree and then I call a wizard or something there you have active_ids because you selected some rows. If you are calling a tree view, there is no rows selected so there is no active_id present.
