This module extends URL widget for displaying anchors with custom labels.

Project description

Beta License: LGPL-3 OCA/web Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

Extend URL widget features to ease customization of anchor’s text.

By default, the URL widget will show the plain URL. You can specify an attribute to provide a static label too.

With this module, you can use a field for link’s inner text using attribute ‘text_field’. You can also add a prefix to the link using attribute ‘prefix_name’.

Until 13.0 this functionality was separated in modules ‘web_widget_url_advanced’ and ‘web_widget_prefixed_url’

Table of contents

Usage

Use url widget as you do usually, then add an extra parameter text_field to indicate which field (present in the view already) must be used for the anchor text.

<field name="some_url" widget="url" text_field="another_field" />

M2O fields are supported: display_name is used automatically.

For example, in the partner form, if you want to display the website link with partner’s name as anchor you can do:

<field name="website" widget="url" text_field="name" placeholder="e.g. www.odoo.com"/>

This is going to change the rendering from

to

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OCA/web/13.0/web_widget_url_advanced/static/description/after.png

Or user can add any hyperlink text using ‘prefix_name’ attribute

<field name="skype_name" widget="url" 'prefix_name': 'skype'/>

both can be applied inside the options attribute too:

<field name="skype_name" widget="url" options="{'prefix_name': 'skype'}"/>

Known issues / Roadmap

  • <field text_field="foo"/> is not supported in tree views.
