Is it possible to check a database value every ´n´ seconds and update a field in the view accordingly?
I would like to be able to display a view which checks a given database field, and depending on its value displays ENABLED or DISABLED, but that updates the status every ´n´ seconds. sort kind of online activity monitor. Is that possible in Odoo?
If so, where could I look for more information on how to achieve that? I am specifically looking for information on how to program/define the "update" action.
You need to use some kind of auto refresh module for views, that refresh the data and also the view for changes. I just finish and tested the migration of a module mine that do that features for several type of views: list, form, kanban, calendar, graph
You can try it by installing:
After install and page refresh you just need to specify a value in seconds for the field auto_refresh of the Odoo Action. After that if you open any view that it's loaded by that action that view will be refreshed after the specified amount of seconds
Hope that helps
