Learn to Create Custom Odoo Widgets
Odoo's powerful framework allows you to create custom widgets to extend the Odoo interface. This is the ultimate in customizing Odoo.
Like many of our videos, this video was a requested video from an OdooClass.com subscriber. The goal is to provide Odoo developers and those that implement Odoo the information they need.
WHY WOULD I WANT TO LEARN HOW TO CREATE CUSTOM ODOO WIDGETS?
Odoo's framework already provides a great number of functional controls that allow you to create forms, graphs, reports, and dashboards. Sometimes however there are special requirements in which you must create a more customized interface. In this Odoo development tutorial we examine how to create custom interface elements so that you can provide end users the most easy to use interfaces possible.
FOLLOW ALONG WITH THE TUTORIAL ON BUILDING CUSTOM ODOO INTERFACES
In this Odoo development video we show you how to follow the tutorial on Building Interface Extensions. This is a well written tutorial but of course it is much different to read the tutorial and then try to figure out everything on your own rather than watch an expert Odoo developer such as Diogo Duarte walk through the tutorial step-by-step. Along the way learn important troubleshooting techniques and see real Odoo development in action.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW TO COMPLETE THIS VIDEO?
Even though this is a self contained video and there is no direct prerequisites it is highly recommended that you have basic knowledge of Odoo development and some experience in understanding the Odoo Framework. Also, make sure that you completely understand the many controls and widgets that are already available within the Odoo framework. Frequently you will be able to re-purpose or modify existing widgets rather than having to build your own from scratch. Either way this video will help you understand the process.
