Several views for one object?

on 7/23/13, 1:11 PM 2,858 views


how can I make 2 views for the same object? Which are displayed depending on the place I am?

For example I have one tree view which is available from 2 menus. Depending on this menu, I have a context={'management': True} or False in the action XML.

But these two menus opens the same tree, and I want to show the form view (object view) differently depending on this context.

Can someone help me? Thanks!

First you have to assign different priorities on the xml for your tree views

<record id="custom_form_tree" model="ir.ui.view">
        <field name="model">custom.model</field>
        <field eval="4" name="priority"/>
        <field name="arch" type="xml">

And on your action you have to set the tree view

<field name="view_id" ref="custom_form_tree"/>

This is going to work.

thank you, but in fact the tree view is not the problem, it's when I want to open the form view from the tree view (by clicking a row), So I want to make the form view different depending on which tree view I am... Sorry if I did not explain well
