Inheritance - How to Inherit From Another Addon

on 3/19/15, 10:51 AM 671 views

Let's say that you have one addon that does basically what you want it to do.  However, what it does when it inherits another class should be tweaked. For instance, account/account_invoice.py has:

class mail_compose_message(models.Model):
_inherit = 'mail.compose.message'

def send_mail(self):
context = self._context
if context.get('default_model') == 'account.invoice' and \
context.get('default_res_id') and context.get('mark_invoice_as_sent'):
invoice = self.env['account.invoice'].browse(context['default_res_id'])
invoice = invoice.with_context(mail_post_autofollow=True)
invoice.write({'sent': True})
invoice.message_post(body=_("Invoice sent"))
return super(mail_compose_message, self).send_mail()

If I inherit mail_compose_message and update something, say set 'sent' to False, the account_invoice code runs afterwards and sets it back to True.

In this example, how do I inherit send_mail() method AFTER the code above is run to set sent or mail_post_autofollow to False?
