I want to modify the search method of a many2one field in OpenERP 7. I am setting up context values in view that has the field.

But the value isn't getting passed to the search method.

What is the solution? Is this a known issue? What are the other ways possible?

To modify the search method on the m2o field you can override the name_search method. eg.

def name_search(self, cr, user, name='', args=None, operator='ilike', context=None, limit=100):
    vals = (CLASSNAME, self).name_search(cr, user, name=name, args=args, operator=operator, context=context, limit=limit)
    #do your code
    return list # e.g[(id, 'name')]

by overriding the name_search method you can extend your search for m2o type field.

Or you can refer : https://doc.openerp.com/v6.1/developer/03_modules_2/#openerp.osv.orm.BaseModel.name_search
