In Stock Move lines, why does the product Name appear in the Description field?

on 8/6/14, 2:31 PM 1,230 views

I recently upgraded my OpenERP 7.0 installation, and since then, in the Stock Move lines form view (both in Incoming Shipments and Delivery Orders) when I select a product in the Product ('product_id') field, the Description ('name') autfills itself with the same information as the Product ('product_id') field instead of using the products description information (either 'description_sale' or 'description_purchase').

How can I fix this? So that the Description field in Stock Move lines uses the Product Description information and not the Product Name.

For example, for the Sale Order lines I know what line of code is responsible for populating the Description field:

in: addons/sale/sale.py (>class sale_order_line(osv.osv): > def product_id_change)


        if not flag:
            result['name'] = self.pool.get('product.product').name_get(cr, uid, [product_obj.id], context=context_partner)[0][1]
            if product_obj.description_sale:
                result['name'] += '\n'+product_obj.description_sale

But I'm not able to find the equivalent for Stock Move lines.

Thanks Chirag! I had a look at that bug fix in your link, and although it fixes a different bug than the one I mentioned, I was able to achieve the results I wanted by changing this line:


'name': product.partner_ref,


'name': product.description_sale,

So two fixes in one blow! perfect

But I'm still puzzled that no one else is complaining about this, isn't it a bug? Shouldn't the "Description" field show the products description information, and not the product name?
