Use the context in a tree view's colors and fonts attribute

Project description

Context in colors

This addon allows to use the current context in colors, thereby allowing i.e. search filters changing the colors used in a tree view. This also works for the fonts attribute.


You might define a search filter:

<filter name="paid_green" string="Show paid invoices in green" context="{'paid_should_be_green': True}" />

And then you could use:

<tree colors="green:state == 'paid' and context.get('paid_should_be_green')">

in your tree view. Take care here that the first match wins, so order your color expressions accordingly.
