RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded

on 6/3/13, 8:10 AM 10,371 views

Hi guyz, I'm getting this error: RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded. But the code was working fine before sometime.

When I searched regarding this issue, many results pointed to execution time taken due to python and also explanations were difficult to understand.

Can anyone give me suggestion regarding this error.

In sample.py:

from osv import fields, osv
import time

class sample(osv.osv):
    def onchange_state(self, cr, uid, ids, state_id, context=None):
        if state_id:
            country_id = self.pool.get('res.country.state').browse(cr, uid, state_id, context).country_id.id
            return {'value':{'country_id':country_id}}
        return {}   
    def _calculate(self, cr, uid, ids, fields, arg, context):
        for record in self.browse(cr, uid, ids):
            x[record.id]= record.field_a + record.field_b
        return x
    _name = "sample"
    _table = "sample"
    _rec_name = "name"
    _log_access = True
    _description = "Simple Form"
    _columns = {
             'name':fields.char('Name', size=32, required=True),
             "age" : fields.integer("age"),
             "length": fields.integer("length"),

             'partner_id': fields.many2one('res.partner', 'Customer', ondelete='cascade'),
             'location_id' : fields.related('location_id', type="many2one", relation="stock.location", string="Location Id"),
             'state_id': fields.many2one("res.country.state", 'State'),
             'country_id': fields.many2one('res.country', 'Country'),
             'country': fields.related('country_id', type='many2one', relation='res.country', string='Country'), 

             'duration' : fields.float('Duration'),

             'field_a' : fields.integer('Number1') ,
             'field_b' : fields.integer('Number2'),
             'result'  : fields.function(_calculate, type='integer', obj='sample', method=True, store=False, string='Result'),

    _defaults = {  
        'date': fields.date.context_today,

check this answer.may be this answer will help you.

Thank you.

I already viewed this link with OpenERP bug issues @ https://bugs.launchpad.net/openobject-addons/+bug/891474.

They are telling it as "configuration mistake" but why is it working fine now?..

I didnt change any code to remove error. Today when I tried to open my custom module, it worked fine.
