Add new options for many2one field


This modules modifies "many2one" form fields so as to add some new display control options.

** New: support many2manytags widget ! **

Options provided includes possibility to remove "Create..." and/or "Create and Edit..." entries from many2one drop down. You can also change default number of proposition appearing in the drop-down. Or prevent the dialog box poping in case of validation error.

If not specified, the module will avoid proposing any of the create options if the current user have no permission rights to create the related object.


Was tested on openerp v7.0

New option

create boolean (Default: depends if user have create rights)

Whether to display the "Create..." entry in dropdown panel.

create_edit boolean (Default: depends if user have create rights)

Whether to display "Create and Edit..." entry in dropdown panel

m2o_dialog boolean (Default: depends if user have create rights)

Whether to display the many2one dialog in case of validation error.

limit int (Default: openerp default value is 7)

Number of displayed record in drop-down panel


Your XML form view definition could contain:

<field name="partner_id" options="{'limit': 10, 'create': false, 'create_edit': false}"/>


Double check that you have no inherited view that remote options you set on a field ! If nothing work, add a debugger in the first ligne of get_search_result method and enable debug mode in OpenERP. When you write something in a many2one field, javascript debugger should pause. If not verify your installation.
