Website Snippet Country Code Dropdown

This module adds a snippet with a dropdown and an input text field, is a base for be inherited by others modules into an HTML form.

This can be inserted into form elements.


To extend this template you need to inherit country_dropdown template and add your personal code.

The template have three input text:

  1. no_country_field: Field without code country.
  2. country_code_field: Field with only country code (read only)
  3. complete_field: Field with the previous two joined (hidden)

The name of the complete field is customizable when user insert the snippet into a form element with the website editor.


You can call the reusable Qweb template called website_snippet_country_dropdown.country_dropdown in your views to add a sensible country-combined field, ideal for VATs.

The default country will be the first match among:

  1. Extract it from the default_country variable.
  2. Extract it from the first 2 letters of the default_value variable.
  3. The current user’s country.
  4. The current website’s company’s country.
  5. The first country in the list.

All variables you can use to modify its behavior:

  • complete_field to give it a name. Usually it will match the field name.
  • default_value for the complete_field.
  • countries as a ORM recordset.
  • default_country as a record.
  • no_country_placeholder.

You can view an example in website_sale_checkout_country_vat in OCA/e-commerce.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • Add tests.
  • Flag images should be lazy-loaded to optimize loading.
  • Snippet drag and drop seems to be blocked by Odoo for some unknown reason.. Given the main purpose of this module is to provide a reusable template for other modules to use, did not take the time to fix that use case.
