New Widgets in Odoo 13

Odoo is known for its simplicity and usability. The open-source software solution has been in discussion right from its inception for its efficient management of different business modules and enhanced collaborative work environment. With each version release, Odoo is becoming stronger and highly competitive with other ERP solutions in the market. 


The recent version, Odoo 13 has introduced several new modules like Employee Skill Management, Rental Management, etc. promising the most intrinsic management of the business. This blog introduces you to the new widgets introduced in Odoo 13.


Widget is a representation of display screens, fields, and attributes in Odoo. It allows us to change the view using different rendering templates. It also allows us to design as per our requirement. Additional widgets are introduced in version 13 to enable us to apply the widgets easily.


1. Signature widget (widget="signature" )

A widget is defined for signature; on using this widget one can easily draw the signature.

Python:

user_signature = fields.Binary(string='Signature') 


XML:

<field name="user_signature" widget="signature"/>

2. Ribbon widget  (<widget name="web_ribbon" text="Paid"/>)

Widget web_ribbon can be used in a form. It displays a ribbon on the top right part of the form. One can specify text in text attribute and background color in the bg_color attribute.


<widget name="web_ribbon" text="Archived" bg_color="bg-danger" />


Let's take an example of invoice payment,

When a customer pays the invoice, a green color ribbon can been seen tied in the corresponding invoice with the status ”paid


<widget name="web_ribbon" text="Paid"/>

If you don’t specify bg_color, by default bg_color will be bg-success.
