How to Set Up Views & View Inheritance in Odoo 14

Odoooffers various kinds of views, and each view is defined by a unique piece of code. You must first add the view in action if you wish to add a view. How can a tree view be added in practice? is listed beneath.

List or Tree View:

Multiple records are displayed on a single page in the tree view.

Kanban View:

Another method of displaying many records. In this instance, you must first add Kanban to the action. Below is information on how to create a Kanban view.

Form View:

Viewing each data point in detail in a form. Additionally, we need to implement action in the case of the form view. Add all necessary views in one action if we require more than one.

Search View:

The search view cannot be shown by itself. It can be used in conjunction with other views to offer search features. How can a search view be made? shall be provided below.

Activity View:

The grid of records-linked activities is displayed in this view. Records were presented in rows and activities in columns in the data.

Calendar View:

The calendar displays events for every record. There are options for day, week, month, and year views.

Pivot View:

You must use the element “pivot” if you want to construct a pivot view. Below are the pivot code and view.

Graph View:

It offers a graphical representation of the data in the form of pie charts, bar charts, line charts, stacked charts, descending charts, and ascending charts.

Map View:

In the map view, records are shown as pins.

Cohort View:

To see and comprehend how some data changes over time, use the cohort view.

View Inheritance in Odoo 14

View inheritance allows us to modify existing views in Odoo by adding new fields or buttons, changing properties of specific fields, and inheriting bespoke or pre-existing views. Inherited code can be added to a new XML file and several views can be inherited, including form, tree, Kanban, etc.

To inherit a view, we need to specify the model name, insert the inherit id, and then insert the view that requests the field. Next, we specify the path inside the view and the field to add, along with its position. Different values for xpath can be added as well. Positions can be “inside”, “after”, “before”, “replace”, or “attributes”.

Once the fields and positions are selected, we can add them to the path inside the view. The file path can be provided in manifest->data in the Odoo file structure.
