Bug Description


When we have nested o2m in an object, and assuming we are not saving parent record manually and no o2m is inline-editable.
on click of `New` for first-level o2m (say X) works fine, and opens empty-X-form in frame dialog
now in X's form, for second-level o2m (say Y) when we click on `New`, it saves X(means its parent) but could not open Y's form in first click. but once X is saved (manually or indirectly), we can create Y successfully.

Some fields of DOM could not be find in `edit` function of `One2Many` javascript class in first go when o2m-level>1.
you can test this in Human Resources -> Configuration -> Payroll -> Salary Structure (to test no o2m should be inline editable)

Note: this bug exist in web-client-trunk

Thanks for reporting this, I have tested as your description for nested o2m and faced the same problem.

I have tested with,
Sales > Configuration > Pricelists >New (Create new record) > New (Pricelist Version) > New (Products Listprices Items)
- Now first click on button "New" it saves the parent record but could not open next form And it opens after second click.

So, I have fixed this problem with revision number 4635 in dev branch like,
lp:~openerp-dev/openobject-client-web/trunk-bug-733089-jra .

Revision info:
4635 <email address hidden>

Changed in openobject-client-web:
status: Confirmed → Fix Committed

Your patch as #4 (in which my changes are reverted) is not correct for nested o2m case, Its create a problem to load new o2m form.

Please try and check the behaviour as under,

Sales > Configuration > Pricelists > New (Products Price List)> New (Pricelist Version) > New (Products Listprices Items).

There should be open New form of Products Listprices Items on First click only.
But its save the parent record and do nothing for expected New Form open Because,
it does not find the value of terp_id, terp_model, terp_view_mode, etc..

So that changes are needed and Yes after that changes in revision 4566, the problem faced with only view_mode which is solved in sma's branch as #5.

So, both changes are needed for the nested o2m case and it works fine.

Thanks !
