[Solved] Changing search setting with filter Odoo8

on 4/27/15, 2:48 AM 1,191 views


I am trying to change the filter setting on a search field in my module. I have the following code:

<record model="ir.ui.view" id = "vetclinic_animal_search_view">

<field name = "name">animal.search</field>

<field name = "model">vetclinic.animal</field>

<field name = "arch" type = "xml">

<search string = "Animal Search">

<filter name = "animal_dogs" string "Dogs" domain = "[('classification_id', '=', 'Dog')]"/>




When I go back to Odoo I get the following error message:

XMLSyntaxError: Specification mandate value for attribute string, (this is string = "Dogs" in above code)

Can anyone help me here?

above code is missing assignment operator '=' from 

<filter name = "animal_dogs" string "Dogs" domain = "[('classification_id', '=', 'Dog')]"/>
