... In openerp7

I want my new state to show up in sale module ... But it is not appearing
Pls have a look at code below

In sale.py module I added state like:

    class Sale_order(osv.Model):

    _inherit = 'sale.order'

    _columns = {
        'state': fields.selection([
            ('draft', 'Draft Quotation'),
            ('my_new_state', 'My New State'),
            ('sent', 'Quotation Sent'),
            ('cancel', 'Cancelled'),
            ('waiting_date', 'Waiting Schedule'),
            ('progress', 'Sales Order'),
            ('manual', 'Sale to Invoice'),
            ('invoice_except', 'Invoice Exception'),
            ('done', 'Done'),
            ], 'Status', readonly=True, track_visibility='onchange',
            help="Gives the status of the quotation or sales order. \nThe exception status is automatically set when a cancel operation occurs in the processing of a document linked to the sales order. \nThe 'Waiting Schedule' status is set when the invoice is confirmed but waiting for the scheduler to run on the order date.", select=True),

And in sale_view.xml, I added this piece of code..

        <!-- Inherit the sale order model's form view and customize -->
        <record id="sale_form_view" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">sale.order.form.inherit</field>
            <field name="model">sale.order</field>
            <field name="inherit_id" ref="sale.view_order_form"/>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <!-- Statusbar widget should also contain the new status -->
                <field name="state" position="replace">
                    <field name="state" widget="statusbar" statusbar_visible="draft,my_new_state,sent,invoiced,done" statusbar_colors='{"invoice_except":"red","waiting_date":"blue"}'/>

But.... My new state is not appearing between draft quotation and quotation sent

Please guide

Why is this so

import netsvc from openerp.osv import osv, fields class purchase_order(osv.osv): _inherit = 'purchase.order' STATE_SELECTION = [ ('draft', 'Draft PO'), ('sent', 'RFQ Sent'), ('design_approved','Design Approval'), ('confirmed', 'Waiting Approval'), ('approved', 'Purchase Order'), ('except_picking', 'Shipping Exception'), ('except_invoice', 'Invoice Exception'), ('done', 'Done'), ('cancel', 'Cancelled') ] _columns = { 'state': fields.selection(STATE_SELECTION, 'Status', readonly=True, help="The status of the purchase order or the quotation request. A quotation is a purchase order in a 'Draft' status. Then the order has to be confirmed by the user, the status switch to 'Confirmed'. Then the supplier must confirm the order to change the status to 'Approved'. When the purchase order is paid and received, the status becomes 'Done'. If a cancel action occurs in the invoice or in the reception of goods, the status becomes in exception.", select=True), } this is how i added a custom state and i used this xml to view it design_approved function write({'state':'design_approved'}) design_confirm purchase_confirm purchase.workflow.inherit purchase.order <xpath expr="/form/header//button[@name='print_quotation']" position="after"> <xpath expr="/form/header//button[@name='purchase_confirm']" position="replace">

At first you should craete a state in workflow...?

then appropriate transition..? after that only it will appear..

I se.e. but each time i want to give new state i just have to add activity plus transition thats it? I mean all doable from interface or both from code and interface I have to do? And in that upper case I mentioned in question, coding wont help or both coding and interface change of workflow will work ? Thanks

Actually what I want is that .. I have to put two approvals between draft quotation and rfq sent in purchase order... By default odoo has only one approval..I want to add states and i want to trigger wioth buttons to these states.. Like approved by superintendent then approved by manager and then approved by ceo...then rfq sent must be triggered....each of them must approve certain levels of purchase orders amount like for superintendent 1000$ and similarly varies from person to person
