Inherit Field from Module (v8)

on 6/23/16, 8:33 AM 903 views

Hi there

I have two different modules. How can I add a field from the first module in a view of the second module?

I don't get the whole inheritance part somehow, could somebody please explain it to me?

Thank you

The inheritance mechanism has not changed. You can use:

class MyModelExtended(Model):
     _inherit = 'a.model'                       # direct heritage
     _inherit = ['a.model, 'a.other.model']     # direct heritage
     _inherits = {'a.model': 'field_name'}      # polymorphic heritage

For more details about inheritance please have a look at
