Override search method to Add/Remove domain in list view

on 7/15/14, 9:17 AM 4,569 views

In Openerp 7  User login list view display record always with domain conditions. But while searching the record remove the domain condition temporarily and return the output based on user input. Based on search method overridden and below code used.

    <record id="action_custommodel_view" model="ir.actions.act_window">
        <field name="name">Sample</field>
        <field name="res_model">sample.module</field>
        <field name="view_type">form</field>
        <field name="view_mode">tree,form</field>
        <field name="view_id" ref="view_samplemodule_tree"/>
        <field name="domain">[('user_id','=',uid)]</field>

def search(self, cr, uid, args, offset=0, limit=None, order=None, context=None,count=False, extra=None):
        if uid == 1:
            del args[0]
        if len(args) == 1:
            user_domain = args[0]      
        if uid !=1 and len(args)>1:
            del args[0]
        if uid !=1 and not args:
            args.insert(0, user_domain)                                 
        return super(sample_one, self).search(cr, uid, args, offset, limit, order, context, count)

Let me know wheter about code is right or not?..

Please correct me if i am going wrong...



What is your problem? As long as your code worked, you can save the bill :D Some minor comment about hardcoded value, avoid it. You can use like SUPERUSER_ID to follow existing codebase.

One can override the 'search' method to get control on the displayed result in the tree view display, but this method should be overridden with cautious. For your current code, pls add a comment on each if conditions what does it mean, and a comment on the action you took when this condition is satisfied.
