Extended view inheritance

Beta License: LGPL-3 OCA/server-tools Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

This module was written to make it simple to add custom operators for view inheritance.

Table of contents


Change a python dictionary (context for example)

<attribute name="$attribute" operation="python_dict" key="$key">

Note that views are subject to evaluation of xmlids anyways, so if you need to refer to some xmlid, say %(xmlid)s.

Add to values in a list (states for example)

Deprecated. This feature is now native, use <attribute name=”attrname” separator=”,” add=”something” />.

Remove values from a list (states for example)

Deprecated. This feature is now native, use <attribute name=”attrname” separator=”,” remove=”something” />.

Move an element in the view

This feature is now native, cf the official Odoo documentation.

Add text after and/or before than original

<attribute name="$attribute" operation="text_add">
    $text_before {old_value} $text_after

Add domain with AND/OR join operator (AND if missed) allowing conditional changes

<attribute name="$attribute" operation="domain_add"
           condition="$field_condition" join_operator="OR">

Known issues / Roadmap

  • On 15.0, remove list_add and list_remove fetures.
  • Support an eval attribute for our new node types.
