is there a python dropdown year selector

on 12/10/14, 6:48 AM 641 views

python function that creates automatically a dropdown year selector (that is a "select" element poulated with all years starting from current and dating back to a given year)?

I don't need day/month (otherwise i'd have used the datepicker), i just need the year!

Thanks in advance

I don't know of any functionality, but it should be easily built using a fields.selection and using a method to fill in the options.

Alternatively, if you are going to use this in the context of fiscal years, you can always access the corresponding object (account.fiscalyear) and display it using a selection widget.

fields.selection is not good idea. so i am trying to auto populate the years. i wrote a function like this def "populate_year(self, cr, uid, ids, name, args, context=None): years = date.today().year curryear = date.today().year loops = years[-2:] + 10 year_dropdown = [] for y in range(2010, (datetime.datetime.now().year + loops)): year_dropdown.append((y, y))" But i am facing an issue called "TypeError: populate_year() takes at least 6 arguments (4 given)"
