Hi All,

I'm looking for a solution to add phone numbers in the above said format. Is there any module or any hint how to achieve this? :)

I had tried with a module named "bss_phone_numbers" and it is suggesting to take field type as "phonenumber", but no luck,

It's throwing an error "Undefined widget............". Please help me on this. I don't need any restriction or validation for phone number.
I just want to create and display a field for phone number, where user can input the number in 'XXX-XXX-XXXX' format.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

Cheers
ASP :)

The best module I have found for this purpose is https://www.odoo.com/apps/7.0/base_phone/

You need to install the Python library first, ie: sudo pip install phonenumbers

That module really helped, thanks Ray! By the way, it changes, by default, all numbers to +XXXXXXXXXXX. Is there any config I could make to format, say, XX (XXX) XXXXX-XXXX

The numbers are in the format "+441132345678" during edit mode, but change to "+44 113 234 5678" when they are saved - is that what you are seeing? To change what the widget displays, change the function used in base_phone/static/src/js/phone_widget.js which leverages the library at base_phone/static/lib/js/PhoneFormat.js

Hey Ray, Thanks for the reply :) It worked fine for all partners. But for my custom module where I have phone fields, it didn't reformat the numbers. So I just added "Widget" attribute as 'phone' to those fields in my custom module. Now a link has been added for click to dial, but number is till not formatted. In edit mode it looks fine 'xxx-xxx-xxxx' but after save 'xxxxxxxxxx'. Please help me with this :)

In the Python file, change ['phone', 'partner_phone', 'fax', 'mobile'] to ['phone', 'partner_phone', 'fax', 'mobile',’YOUR_FIELD1’,’YOUR_FIELD2’] so that the code knows to apply the same validation to the extra phone field(s).

Hi Ray, the extra phone fields (phone, fax) are in my custom module and not in res_partner. So how to add those to the list? and how it'll recognize the fields from which module? :)

If you added those fields to the res.partner model, then just adding them to the python code in base_phone will be enough.

 

Once you add your fields, all modules that use res.partner will see them, including base_phone.


Ray.

I don't know of a single field type (other than maybe a char field with a regular expression), but if it absolutely needs to be strictly input like that, try to make 3 char fields. One for each section with a certain size (size=3) and in your view somehow put the dashes in manually.

Does that help?
