Run actions from onchange handlers

Onchange actions

This module allows you to return an action (ir.actions.*) from an onchange handler.

This way, you can have much more elaborate message boxes or simply show a whole wizard or do whatever else is possible with actions on the client side.


Depend on this module and in your onchange handler, add a key action to the warning dictionary of the result which contains the definition of an action to execute:

    'value': ....,
    'domain': ....,
    'warning': {
        'title': 'This will be shown if this module is not available',
        'message': 'Fallback message, see above',
        # this module picks up this key and shows it *instead* of the
        # warning above
        'action': {
            'type': 'ir.actions.act_window',
            'res_model': 'my.wizard',

The module web_ir_actions_act_window_message can be quite helpful here.
