Hello everybody;

I have added a smart button in the payslip view that give access to employee view.

But, the problem is when i click on the button i have the access to all the employees.

Here is the code. Can anyone help please.

                <xpath expr="//field[@name='payslip_count']" position="after">

<div class="oe_button_box" name="button_box">

<button class="oe_inline oe_stat_button" type="action" name="%(action_employee_filtre)d"

attrs="{'invisible': [('employee_id', '=', False)]}" help="Afficher la Fiche Employé" icon="fa-user">

<field string="Fiche Employé" name="employee_count" widget="statinfo"/>




        <record model="ir.actions.act_window" id="action_employee_filtre">

<field name="name">Fiche Employé</field>

<field name="res_model">hr.employee</field>

<field name="view_type">form</field>

<field name="view_mode">tree,form</field>

<field name="domain">[('id', '=', active_id)]</field>


Best Regards.

Your domain doesn't work (I mean this: <field name="domain">[('id', '=', active_id)]</field>). That's the problem. You can pass the active_id which is employee ID (I bet) via python (you have to make action in python code and make button as object type) or context (I'm not sure for context).

you can click on the link of `many2one` field (Employee field) to see the employee information no ?

if not can you make sure your question is clear?
