In the standard OpenERP installation, if you click on Accounting --> Journal Entries sub menu ----> Journal Items, you see a tree view with two drop down at the top that allow you to filter by period and journal. I thought this was cool functionality, so I was looking into the source. The source of this view is:

    <record id="view_move_line_tree" model="ir.ui.view">
        <field name="name">account.move.line.tree</field>
        <field name="model">account.move.line</field>
        <field eval="1" name="priority"/>
        <field name="arch" type="xml">
            <tree colors="red:state == 'draft';black:state == 'valid'" string="Journal Items" create="true" on_write="on_create_write" version="7.0" editable="top">
                <field name="journal_id" options='{"no_open":True}' invisible="context.get('journal_id',False)"/>
                <field name="period_id" options='{"no_open":True}' invisible="context.get('period_id',False)"/>
                <field name="date"/>
                <field name="name"/>
                <field name="ref"/>
                <field name="statement_id" invisible="1"/>
                <field name="partner_id" on_change="onchange_partner_id(move_id, partner_id, account_id, debit, credit, date, journal_id)"/>
                <field name="account_id" options='{"no_open":True}' domain="[('journal_id','=',journal_id), ('company_id', '=', company_id)]" on_change="onchange_account_id(account_id, partner_id, context)"/>
                <field name="account_tax_id" options='{"no_open":True}' invisible="context.get('journal_type', False) not in ['sale','sale_refund','purchase','purchase_refund','general']"/>
                <field name="analytic_account_id" groups="analytic.group_analytic_accounting" domain="[('type','not in',['view','template'])]" invisible="not context.get('analytic_journal_id',False)"/>
                <field name="move_id" required="0"/>
                <field name="debit" sum="Total Debit"/>
                <field name="credit" sum="Total Credit"/>
                <field name="date_maturity" invisible="context.get('journal_type', False) not in ['sale','sale_refund','purchase','purchase_refund']"/>
                <field name="reconcile"/>
                <field name="invoice" invisible="1"/>
                <field name="amount_currency" readonly="True" invisible="not context.get('currency',False)"/>
                <field name="currency_id" readonly="True" invisible="not context.get('currency',False)" />
                <field name="state" invisible="1"/>
                <field name="company_id" invisible="1"/>

My question is: how do they accomplish this functionality? I can't find the answers when looking at the source. To me, it just looks like a regular tree view. What tells the system to put the two dropdowns (and also provide filtering logic) at the top?

take a look at the answer to question /12873/how-to-display-filters-at-the-top-of-tree-view/

  • looks like you have to modify several files to include the xml and js file
