Now, let’s see how to create a search panel in existing modules and custom modules in Odoo 17.

We can create a search panel for the product model.

This is the XML code for the search panel:

<record id="product_template_search_panel" model="ir.ui.view">
   <field name="name">product.template.search.panel</field>
   <field name="model">product.template</field>
   <field name="inherit_id" ref="product.product_template_search_view"/>
   <field name="arch" type="xml">
       <search position="inside">
               <field name="categ_id" enable_counters="1" icon="fa fa-filter"/>
               <field name="detailed_type" icon="fa-files-o"/>

Here, the search panel is included in the products page based on the field product category. 

Filtering is done based on the fields we mention inside the searchpanel tag. Some of the possible attributes for the fields are NAME, ICON, LIMIT, and ENABLE_COUNTERS.

In the Name Attribute, you can mention the field name based on which you need filtering.  You can give one or more field names inside the search panel tag.

You can specify the Icon for visually representing the string.

Enable_counters is set to True if we want to show the number of records for each value. By default, it is zero.

Here’s the output.
