Why this action menu voice appears only in the sale order view?
I am using odoo11, and i am working on the following code, that adds a menu item in the "action" dropdown for sale orders, in order for the user to confirm multiple sale orders at once:
class SaleOrderConfirmWizard(models.TransientModel): _name = "sale.order.confirm.wizard" _description = "Wizard - Sale Order Confirm" @api.multi def confirm_sale_orders(self): self.ensure_one() active_ids = self._context.get('active_ids') orders = self.env['sale.order'].browse(active_ids) for order in orders: print(order.id) if order.state in ['draft', 'sent']: order.action_confirm()
<record id="view_confirm_sale_order" model="ir.ui.view"> <field name="model">sale.order.confirm.wizard</field> <field name="arch" type="xml"> <form string="Confirm Sale Orders"> <footer> <button name="confirm_sale_orders" string="Confirm" type="object" class="oe_highlight"/> or <button string="Cancel" class="oe_link" special="cancel" /> </footer> </form> </field> </record> <record id="action_confirm_sale_order" model="ir.actions.act_window"> <field name="name">Confirm Sale Orders</field> <field name="type">ir.actions.act_window</field> <field name="res_model">sale.order.confirm.wizard</field> <field name="view_type">form</field> <field name="view_mode">form</field> <field name="view_id" ref="view_confirm_sale_order" /> <field name="target">new</field> <field name="multi">True</field> </record> <act_window id="confirm_sale_order" name="Confirm Sale Orders" src_model="sale.order" res_model="sale.order.confirm.wizard" view_type="form" view_mode="form" key2="client_action_multi" target="new"/>
Now, I may be blind, but I can't see anywhere the reference to the treeview (which is "sale.view_order_tree" if im not wrong) this stuff should appear in.
I wanted something similar for the "quotation" treeview, and i thought i had to change some view reference (quotations are still instances of "sale.order" model, so i guess i have to change nothing on the model side)...
But, as strange as it sounds, i cannot find in this code any reference to the sale order treeview to change. I am probably missing something very evident, so please forgive this pretty dumb question.
Thank you in advance
I can't really explain why, but now i can see the new menu item even in the quotation page (maybe i didn't refresh properly the page?). In any case, i'd like to know if its normal that there is no explicit reference to the view?
