odoo tree view default group by using filed

<record id="action_project_milestone_invoicing_view" model="ir.actions.act_window">
<fieldname="name">Project Milestone Invoicing</field>
<pclass="oe_view_nocontent_create">Create the first Project with Milestone</p>

[/code ]


1). Create a custom model,
2). Create a Tree View,
3). Create a menu entry.

Create a custom model

class ProjectMilestoneInvoicing(models.Model):
    _name = "project.milestone.invoicing"
    _auto = False

    project = fields.Many2one('project.project')
    client = fields.Many2one('res.partner')
    milestone = fields.Char(string='Milestone')
    payment = fields.Float(string='Payment')

    def init(self):
        print "Connected"
        tools.drop_view_if_exists(self._cr, 'project_milestone_invoicing')
            CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW project_milestone_invoicing AS (
                row_number() OVER () as id,
                ps.project_id as project,
                ps.milestone as milestone,
                ps.payment as payment, 
                aa.partner_id as client 
                FROM public.project_stages ps 
                LEFT JOIN  project_project pp ON ps.project_id =
                LEFT JOIN  account_analytic_account aa ON pp.analytic_account_id =
                where  ps.milestone is not null and ps.project_id is not null

Create a View

<!-- Form view Action for Project Milestone Invoicing -->
        <record id="action_project_milestone_invoicing_view" model="ir.actions.act_window">
            <field name="type">ir.actions.act_window</field>
            <field name="name">Project Milestone Invoicing</field>
            <field name="res_model">project.milestone.invoicing</field>
            <field name="view_mode">tree,form</field>
            <field name="view_type">form</field>
            <field name="help" type="html">
                <p class="oe_view_nocontent_create">Create the first milestone</p>

        <record model="ir.ui.view" id="action_project_milestone_invoicing_tree">
            <field name="name">Project Milestone Invoicing</field>
            <field name="model">project.milestone.invoicing</field>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <tree string="Project Milestone Invoicing" create="false">
                    <field name='project'/>
                    <field name='client' />
                    <field name='milestone' />
                    <field name='payment' />

Create Menu

<!-- Menu item for Project Milestone Invoicing-->
        <menuitem name="Project Milestone Invoicing" action="action_project_milestone_invoicing_view" id="menu_project_milestone_invoicing_act" parent="project.menu_project_config" sequence="4"/>

How to update Many2many field

    def create(self,vals):
        project_ids = []
        stage_obj = self.env['project.task.type']
        result = super(Project, self).create(vals)
        for resource in result:
            for source in resource.stage_ids:
                if source:
                    stage_id =[('id', '=',])
                    stage_id.update({'project_ids': [( 6, 0, project_ids)]})
        return result

    def create(self, vals):
        stage_obj = self.env['project.task.type']
        result = super(Project, self).create(vals)
        for resource in result.stage_ids:
            stage_id =[('id', '=',])
            if stage_id:
                stage_id.write({'project_ids': [( 4,]})
        return result

#stage_id_s.write({'project_ids': [( 3,]}) (unlink)
#stage_id.write({'project_ids': [( 4,]}) (create new)

How to add button in tree view header near “Create” and “Import” buttons Odoo10

1). I create some js script (tree_menu/static/src/js/tree_view_button.js) with click listener for my button :

odoo.define('tree_menu.tree_view_button', function (require){
"use strict";

var core = require('web.core');
var ListView = require('web.ListView');
var QWeb = core.qweb;

        render_buttons: function($node) {
                var self = this;

        tree_view_action: function () {           
                type: "ir.actions.act_window",               
                name: "product",               
                res_model: "product.template",               
                views: [[false,'form']],               
                target: 'current',               
                view_type : 'form',               
                view_mode : 'form',               
                flags: {'form': {'action_buttons': true, 'options': {'mode': 'edit'}}}
        return { 'type': 'ir.actions.client','tag': 'reload', } } 



2). After that, create tree_menu/static/src/xml/tree_view_button.xml with the template, which replaces “Create” button if I use project.project model

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <template id="template" xml:space="preserve">       
          <t t-extend="ListView.buttons">                   
            <t t-jquery="button.o_list_button_add" t-operation="replace">                           
                  <button t-if="widget.model == 'purchase.order'" class="btn btn-primary btn-sm o_list_tender_button_create" type="button">Create Tender</button>
                  <button t-if="widget.model != 'purchase.order'" class="btn btn-primary btn-sm o_list_button_add" type="button">Create</button>

3). After that, add js script in web.asset_backend (Create file tree_menu/views/tree_view_asset.xml)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>   
            <template id="assets_backend" name="tree view menu" inherit_id="web.assets_backend">               
                  <xpath expr="." position="inside">                   
                        <script type="text/javascript" src="/tree_menu/static/src/js/tree_view_button.js"></script>               

4). And finally, add in section ‘qweb’ for ‘qweb’: [‘static/src/xml/tree_view_button.xml’], and place file views/project.xml in ‘data’ section.

    'name': 'odoo10 Tree View JS Menu',
    'version': '1.0',
    'category': 'General',
    'summary': 'odoo10 Tree View JS Menu',
    'description': """ odoo10 Tree View JS Menu """,
    'author': 'Ananthu',
    'website': '',
    'depends': ['base','purchase','web'],
    'qweb': ['static/src/xml/tree_view_button.xml'],       
    'demo': [],
    'installable': True,
    'application': True,
    'auto_install': False,

How to add custom font to qweb report

1). Create font folder under “module_name/static/src/fonts/”

2). create .css file (ref :

@font-face {
    font-family: 'calibri';
    src: url('../fonts/Calibri.eot'); /* IE9 Compat Modes */
    src: url('../fonts/Calibri.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'), /* IE6-IE8 */
         url('../fonts/Calibri.woff2') format('woff2'), /* Super Modern Browsers */
         url('../fonts/Calibri.woff') format('woff'), /* Pretty Modern Browsers */
         url('../fonts/Calibri.ttf')  format('truetype'), /* Safari, Android, iOS */
         url('../fonts/Calibri.svg#Calibri') format('svg'); /* Legacy iOS */
    font:normal 12px calibri !important;
    text-align: center !important;
    color: #000000 !important;
    padding-top: 5px !important;

3). Add your new style sheet

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <template inherit_id="report.minimal_layout" id="minimal_layout_inherit">
      <xpath expr="//head" position="inside">
             <link rel='stylesheet' href="/feag_header_footer/static/src/css/feag_layout_style.css"/>
             <link rel='stylesheet' href="/feag_header_footer/static/src/css/feag_report_style.css"/>

4). now you can use the class in HTML tags. eg.
