Odoo/OpenERP : Call function on button

There are three ways to add functionality on button in OpenERP/Odoo:

1. Call function directly on button: You can directly call the function defined in model/class using type="object" attribute.

i.e

<button string="Check availability" name="check_username_availability" type="object" class="oe_highlight" />

In this case you have to define 'check_username_availablilty' function in model.

2. Using Workflow: Workflow is the most used functionality in OpenERP/Odoo to process flow of the activity. Default type of button is workflow i.e type="workflow".  Workflow itself is an vital topic so can't talk much about this here.

<button string="Accept" name="signal_accept" type="workflow" class="oe_highlight" />

3. Using action: You have to user type="action" if you want to call any action defined in the .xml file. For example if you want to open any wizard you can use following code snippet:

<button name="%(action_id)d" string="Button Label" type="action">

or you can replace %(action_id)d with action id from database.

Odoo: Qweb Templates Cache Issue

Hi Everyone, Today I was working on a hotel booking template in Odoo and changes made in the Qweb template(.xml) were not reflecting on updating module with odoo service restart. Tried few times without any success :(. Finally, I decided to delete the old template from Odoo backend and then update module again and it worked like a charm!! :) Steps to delete template from backend: Settings --> User Interface --> Views --> Search by template name Delete the used template. Although it's a small post, but I'm sure it will meet the purpose and help someone in the future. Thanks!!!

Odoo/OpenERP: one2one relational field example

one2one relational field is deprecated in OpenERP version>5 but you can achieve the same using many2one relational field. You can achieve it in following two ways : 1) using many2one field in both the objects ( http://tutorialopenerp.wordpress.com/2014/04/23/one2one/ ) 2)  using inheritance by deligation You can easily find the first solution with little search over internet so let's start with 2nd solution.
