on 8/31/13, 10:06 AM 6,374 views

Based on user particular Field readonly applied using field_view_get method

def fields_view_get(self, cr, uid, view_id=None, view_type='form', context=None, toolbar=False, submenu=False):
    res = super(class_name,self).fields_view_get(cr, uid, view_id, view_type, context, toolbar=toolbar, submenu=submenu)
    if 'filed_name' in res['fields'] and uid!=1:
        res['fields']['filed_name']['readonly'] = True
    return res

The code worked in version 6.0.4 but in the latest version 7 not working. How to make works?...

Hi, This is solution for that.

from openerp.osv.orm import setup_modifiers

def fields_view_get(self, cr, uid, view_id=None, view_type='form', context=None, toolbar=False, submenu=False):
            res = super(uma_stock_picking_in, self).fields_view_get(cr, uid, view_id=view_id, view_type=view_type,
                                                                    context=context, toolbar=toolbar, submenu=submenu)
           if view_type == 'form':
                    doc = etree.XML(res['arch'])
                    for node in doc.xpath("//field[@name='min_date']"):
                            node.set('readonly', "0")
                            setup_modifiers(node, res['fields']['min_date'])

                    res['arch'] = etree.tostring(doc)
            return res

You should notice function setup_modifiers if you want to set option in ['invisible', 'readonly'] because in version 7 when you set readonly or invisible it will generate the modifiers attribute to take care this.


Thanks i will try using fields_view_get method to Particular Groups and Users to set field read-only is it possible in version 7 ?...

I don't know, most of work I am working on version 7. In that code above you can set user or group or other choice easy. But one thing I don't know how to override the tree view of field one2many or many2many field in form view because in fields_view_get we can not get its.
