View Inheritance to New Module

on 12/4/13, 8:04 PM 1,822 views

Hi all,

I've been searching for this answer for a couple days, and have yet to find a solution that works. I am creating a new module that essentially mimicks the lead to invoice process, except with an emphasis on repairs workflow.

In essence, I've created a new module

    class repairs_lead(osv.osv):

    _inherit = 'crm.lead'


Now I would like to create a new menu system, but I am struggling to import the views as they exist. My starting point as you can see is crm.lead, and my first goal is to reproduce the appearance of crm.lead, except under the model repairs.lead.

My XML so far:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<record id="repairs_lead_form_inherit" model="ir.ui.view">
<field name="name">repairs.lead.form.inherit</field>
<field name="model">repairs.lead</field>
<field name="inherit_id" ref="crm.crm_case_form_view_leads"/>
<field name="arch" type="xml"> </field>

<record id="repairs_lead_tree_inherit" model="ir.ui.view">
<field name="name">repairs.lead.tree.inherit</field>
<field name="model">repairs.lead</field>
<field name="inherit_id" ref="crm.crm_case_tree_view_leads"/>
<field name="arch" type="xml">

<record id="action_repairs_leads" model="ir.actions.act_window">
<field name="name">Repairs</field>
<field name="res_model">repairs.lead</field>
<field name="view_type">form</field>
<field name="view_mode">tree,form</field>
</record><menuitem id="repairs_menu_top" name="Repairs"/>
<menuitem id="repairs_submenu" name="Repairs Sub" parent="repairs_menu_top"/>
<menuitem id="repairs_menu" name="Repairs Lead" parent="repairs_submenu" action="action_repairs_leads"/>

Thank you for your help.

any thoughts?

Here you created new object 'repair.lead' which inherit 'crm.lead'. This is classical inheritance, here 'repair.lead' inherit all fields and methods of 'crm.lead'.

You can also override 'crm.lead' fields and methods.

You can't use existing view of 'crm.lead' for 'repair.lead', you have to create your own views for 'repair.lead'.

Hope this helps.
