Development Book V17: Kanban view

In Odoo, various views, such as tree view, form view, list view, kanban view, pivot view, calendar view, etc., can be created. The kanban view serves as a kanban board visualization, presenting records in a "block" format, and allows the inclusion of images. However, it does not support direct editing of records from the kanban view.

Let's explore the process of crafting a new kanban view.

Create a model.

class HospitalPatient(models.Model):
                           _name = "hospital.patient"
                           _description = 'Hospital Patient'
                           name = fields.Char(string='Name', help='Name of Patient')
                           age = fields.Integer(string='Age', help='Age of Patient')
                           Image = fields.Binary(string='Image', help='Image of Patient’)
                        

The next steps involve adding the menu and associating the appropriate menu action for this model.


                            <record id="hospital_patient_action" model="ir.actions.act_window">
                               <field name="name">Patients</field>
                               <field name="res_model">hospital.patient</field>
                               <field name="view_mode">kanban,tree,form</field>
                               <field name="help" type="html">
                                   <p class="o_view_nocontent_smiling_face">No patients found. Let's
                                       create one!
                                   </p>
                                   <p>To get things done, use activities and status on patients.</p>
                               </field>
                            </record>
                            <menuitem id="hospital_patient_menu" name="Patient"
                                     parent="hospital_menu_hospital" action="hospital_patient_action"
                                     sequence="2"/>
                            

Now, configure the kanban view for the model with the desired layout, ensuring the inclusion of necessary fields.


                                    <record id="hospital_patient_view_kanban" model="ir.ui.view">
                                       <field name="name">hospital.patient.view.kanban</field>
                                       <field name="model">hospital.patient</field>
                                    </record>
                                    <field name="arch" type="xml">
                   <kanban class="o_kanban_mobile">
                       <field name="name"/>
                       <field name="email"/>
                       <templates>
                           <t t-name="kanban-box">
                               <div t-attf-class="oe_kanban_global_click">
                                   <div class="o_kanban_image">
                                       <img t-att-src="kanban_image('hospital.patient', 'image', record.id.value)"
                                            class="o_image_64_max" height="52"/>
                                   </div>
                                   <div class="oe_kanban_details">
                                       <strong class="o_kanban_record_title">
                                           <field name="name"/>
                                       </strong>
                                       <div t-if="record.email.value">
                                           <t t-esc="record.email.value"/>
                                       </div>
                                   </div>
                               </div>
                           </t>
                       </templates>
                   </kanban>
                </field>
                                    

The result of the aforementioned model is as follows.
