Website get multiple value of selection(multiple="multiple")? [SOLVED]

on 10/12/15, 2:48 AM 3,328 views


I've defined a selection on website form, this selection will hold 'many2many' field, so it will look like 'many2many_tags' widget.

For now, on the website form view, I can select more than one value, but when I validated the form value sent to backend, it's only get the first value for this selection.

here my code (xml):

<div id="group_permit" t-attf-class="form-group

       <label class="col-md-3 col-sm-4 control-label" for="permit" >Driving License</label>

       <div id="fields_permit" class="col-md-7 col-sm-8">

       <select multiple="multiple" name="permit_id" class="form-control select2">

              <t t-foreach="permit_ids" t-as="permit">

                         <option t-att-value="permit.id">

                               <t t-esc="permit.name"/>






On the 'firebugs', I see, there are two value for selection field was sent to server:


permit_id: 1

permit_id: 2

On the backend, when I debug the value was sent:

Only detected the first value. {'permit_id': u'1'}

How to get all the value was selected?

Please help :)

Hello Jamin Shah,

Thanks for the answer.

Just get a notification for your answer (I almost forget if I asked this question).

Actually, it was solved, nothing wrong with that view, just need extra code on the backend (controller) to handle it.


permit_ids = request.httprequest.form.getlist('permit_id')

Thank you so much, I am also having same issue with multiple select in Odoo website.

Code is fine.

Same code works for me.I think you are missing somewhere in selecting value.

For many2many it send in [1, 2] format which then converted to (6, 0 ..) format.
