multiple models in one view (form view inside form view)

on 10/20/16, 8:54 AM 1,406 views

I have 3 models representing 3 levels of data but when viewing these models it has to be one view 

models are "Group Match", "Match" and "Match Details", group match is like a small league which has number of matches and each match has its details, group match and match has to be form views not tree in form

So I need to view all of these 3 models in one view (may be nested view)

note: group match has field one2many to match and match has one2many field to match details

Hi Mohamed,

I don't think this is a good idea to concept you solution like that as by default you can open form view wizard from one2many relations.

But you may need this for some specific reasons, so I propose to do it using related fields.

In your model "Match Details" create related fields to the model "Match" and "Group Match".

class match_details(models.Model)    
    group_id = fields.Many2one('match.group')
    field_from_match = fields.Char()

class match_details(models.Model)
    group_id = fields.Many2one('match.group')
    field_from_match_group = fields.Char()

class match_details(models.Model)
    match_id = fields.Many2one('match')
    field_from_match = fields.Char(related="match_id.field_from_match")
    field_from_match_group = fields.Char(related="match_id.group_id.field_from_match_group")

When you create a form view for "Match Details", you can edit the two other models using this related fields.

Hope this help you.

best regards.
