I'm overriding the write() method in validation of odoo hr_attendance

My code is

def write(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None):

    for att in self.browse(cr, uid, ids, context=context):

        prev_att_ids = self.search(cr, uid, [('employee_id', '=', att.employee_id.id), ('name', '<', att.name),

('action', 'in', ('sign_in', 'sign_out'))], limit=1, order='name DESC')

        next_add_ids = self.search(cr, uid, [('employee_id', '=', att.employee_id.id), ('name', '>', att.name),

('action', 'in', ('sign_in', 'sign_out'))], limit=1, order='name ASC')

        prev_atts = self.browse(cr, uid, prev_att_ids, context=context)

        next_atts = self.browse(cr, uid, next_add_ids, context=context)

            if prev_atts and prev_atts[0].action == att.action:

                return self.write(cr, uid, ids, {'state': True})

            if next_atts and next_atts[0].action == att.action: # next exists and is same action

                return self.write(cr, uid, ids, {'state': True})

            if (not prev_atts) and (not next_atts) and att.action != 'sign_in': # first attendance must be sign_in

                return self.write(cr, uid, ids, {'state': True})


                return self.write(cr, uid, ids, {'state': False})

return True

This is my code. While writing a record in attendance it should check the three "if condition" and want to change the value of the field "state" either "true or false" according to the "if conditions".

But the problem is, in attendance module I have created a record and when I press save it show this error

Thanks for your reply Emipro Technologies

I have changed the code but it show this error


Error while validating constraint

maximum recursion depth exceeded

I have tried this code

import resource,sys
resource.setrlimit(resource.RLIMIT_STACK, (2**29,-1))

But it automatically stops the odoo server

Please do not call write() method from defination of the write() method. It is the cause infinite recursion. Please remove """ self.write(cr, uid, ids, {'state': True})""" from your code.

You have define wrong write method

def write(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None):

You have not write one argument "vals". So, vals are passed in context as well as default context is set. So, you got this error.

In that you have to pass following arguments thats it.

def write(self, cr, uid, ids, vals, context={})

It will resolve your issue.
