Just do as like below.

def create(self, vals, context=None):

then how can I call the cr and uid ?

on 9/8/14, 9:25 AM

You can find the cr and uid into self.env. Because this is the new api structure.

I get this MissingError One of the documents you are trying to access has been deleted, please try again after refreshing. the create function has the line: new_id = super(res_partner, self).create( vals,)

on 9/8/14, 9:37 AM

Hello, For the calling of the create method you have two option. 1) As like normal calling with cr and uid. for that you can call new_id = super(res_partner,self).create(self.env.cr, self.env.uid, vals, context=context) 2) As like new API. For that you can call. new_id = super(res_partner,self).create(vals, context=context) Note : You have to confirm that here self is an recordset.

I get the TypeError: create() takes exactly 2 arguments (5 given) when I use: new_id = super(res_partner,self).create(self.env.cr, self.env.uid, vals, context=context) AND TypeError: create() got an unexpected keyword argument 'context' WHEN USING new_id = super(res_partner,self).create(vals, context=context) I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT DO YOU MEAN WITH You have to confirm that here self is an recordset.

on 9/9/14, 6:07 AM

"self" have to be recordset (as like browse record) to call the new api. From the calling just remove the context argument.
