Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I have a binary field, and I want to allow the user to upload only zip files to it. I'm trying to do it this way:
source_file = fields.Binary('Source File', filters='*.zip')
But I've read that this only worked for the old GTK Client. Is there a great way to manage this on version 8?
I'm with the same problem and don't find a solution as simple as the one you mention. But there is a solution as i think simple enough : use the api.constrains. Here is my modus operandi:
1) I save the file's name
files = fields.Binary(string="Download Zip") filename = fields.Char()
<field name="filename" invisible="1" /> <field name="files" filename="filename" />
2) I use the api.constrains to verify the extension
@api.one @api.constrains('filename') def _check_filename(self): if self.files: if not self.filename: raise exceptions.ValidationError(_("There is no file")) else: # Check the file's extension tmp = self.filename.split('.') ext = tmp[len(tmp)-1] if ext != 'zip': raise exceptions.ValidationError(_("The file must be a zip file"))
I know, it's not a very beautiful way to do it but it's an alternative solution to your problem.
Hope that help you.
