Domain in Odoo

In this article, we will see some theory of domain.

A domain is a list of criteria, each criteria being a triple (either a list or a tuple) of (field_name, operator, value).

Where,

 - field_name:

         It's string type and must be from the current model or any relational traversal field through the Many2one field using membership (.) dot operator.

 - operator:

         It's for comparing field's value with passed value.
Valid operator list (>, >=, <, <=, =, !=, =?, ilike, like =like, =ilike, not like, not ilike, childs_of, in, not in)

 - value:

         It's for comparing with field's value.

Multiple criteria can be joined with three logical operators. Logical AND, logical OR, logical NOT.

Let's take a real inputs example:

Suppose we have 10 records like:

Record 1: Openerp

Record 2: openerp

Record 3: Opensource

Record 4: opensource

Record 5: Open

Record 6: open

Record 7: Odoo

Record 8: odoo

Record 9: Odooopenerp

Record 10: OdooOpenerp

OUTPUT:

'like':

[('input', 'like', 'open')] -  Returns case sensitive (wildcards - '%open%') search.

O/p: open, opensource, openerp, Odooopenerp

'not like':

[('input', 'not like', 'open')] -  Returns results not matched with case sensitive (wildcards - '%open%') search.

O/p: Openerp, Opensource, Open, Odoo, odoo, OdooOpenerp

'=like':

[('name', '=like', 'open')] - Returns exact (=  'open') case sensitive search.

O/p: open

'ilike':


[('name', 'ilike', 'open')] - Returns exact case insensitive (wildcards - '%open%') search.

O/p: Openerp, openerp, Opensource, opensource, Open, open, Odooopenerp, OdooOpenerp

'not ilike': [('name', 'not ilike', 'open')] - Returns results not matched with exact case insensitive (wildcards - '%open%') search.

O/p: Odoo, odoo

'=ilike':

[('name', '=ilike', 'open')] - Returns exact (=  'open' or 'Open') case insensitive search.

O/p: Open, open

'=?': 

name = 'odoo'
parent_id = False
[('name', 'like', name), ('parent_id', '=?', parent_id)] - Returns name domain result & True

name = 'odoo'
parent_id = 'openerp'
[('name', 'like', name), ('parent_id', '=?', parent_id)] - Returns name domain result & parent_id domain result

'=?' is a short-circuit that makes the term TRUE if right is None or False, '=?' behaves like '=' in other cases

'in':

[('value1', 'in', ['value1', 'value2'])] - in operator will check the value1 is present or not in list of right term

'not in':

[('value1', 'not in', ['value2'])] - not in operator will check the value1 is not present in list of right term
While these 'in' and 'not in' works with list/tuple of values, the latter
'=' and '!=' works with string

'=':

value = 10
[('value','=',value)] - term left side has 10 in db and term right our value 10 will match

'!=':


value = 15
[('value','!=',value)] - term left side has 10 in db and term right our value 10 will not match

'child_of':


parent_id = '1' #Agrolait
'child_of':
[('partner_id', 'child_of', parent_id)]
- return left and right list of partner_id for given parent_id

'<=', '<', '>', '>=':

These operators are largely used in openerp for comparing dates - [('date', '>=', date_begin), ('date', '<=', date_end)]. You can use these operators to compare int or float also.

Email validation in Odoo

This article will help us to validate Email field on Partner form.

First of all, we need to understand argument of _constraints.

    _constraint has list of arguments in which

          1. Method is name,

          2. Warning/Error message and

          3. List of field name.

Method will be fire based on, change of field value given as third argument in _constraint.

Now we need to set constraint for Email field.

Here is code for constraint.
  
    _constraints = [
        (_validate_email, 'Please enter a valid email address.', ['email']),
    ]

Here is code for method.

    @api.multi
    def _validate_email(self):
        for partner in self:
            if re.match("^.+\\@(\\[?)[a-zA-Z0-9\\-\\.]+\\.([a-zA-Z]{2,3}|[0-9]{1,3})(\\]?)$", partner.email) == None:
                return False
        return True

NOTE:

         Warning/Error message will be populate, only when method will return False.
