Inheritance does not change the field attributes, odoo 9.0c

on 10/4/16, 6:38 AM 439 views

What is 'states' used in the following definition in the class AccountInvoice?

partner_bank_id = fields.Many2one('res.partner.bank', string='Bank Account',
        help='Bank Account Number to which the invoice will be paid. A Company bank account if this is a Customer Invoice or Vendor Refund, otherwise a Partner bank account number.',
        readonly=True, states={'draft': [('readonly', False)]})

As I understand the field must be readonly except when the field 'states' is equal to 'draft' but this class has not got the field 'states'. Or am I wrong?

And I want to change partner_bank_id field of account.invoice to be writable but it does not work, the field stays the same.

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from openerp import api, fields, models, _
class AccountInvoice(models.Model):
    _inherit = "account.invoice"
    partner_bank_id = fields.Many2one('res.partner.bank', string='Account',readonly=False)

partner_bank_id is invisible on the form.

Are you sure you don't want to modify the journal_id field?

Sorry I am not sure I am seeing the whole picture. What functionality are you trying to achieve? Is it the ability to add a bank account to a partner via the invoice form or is it the ability to select the bank account for a partner from multiple configured?

Also, what does the view definition look like? Perhaps you have the partner_bank_id field twice?

I want to choose the bank account to print it in an invoice.

Yeh, the partner_bank_id field is already in the invoice_supplier_form on 'other info' page.

Fields don't work correctly if they are visible more than once on a form. Have you tried to show the field only once?

States works with the special field state.  Try this

partner_bank_id = fields.Many2one('res.partner.bank', string='Account',readonly=False, states={})

and try to restart and upgrade your modules ...

Hope this could helps

FYI, You should only need to modify the parts of the field that you want to change.

i.e. partner_bank_id = fields.Many2one(readonly=False, states={})

should be enough.

I'm confused. I added just the partner_bank_id field to the sale invoice form and any value was not stored in this field despite my invoice was 'draft'.

The partner_bank_id field is mentioned in the 'create' method so I think nothing works because of this.
