ODOO : How to get current state of record object?

There are multiple states added like this:


'state':fields.selection([('new', 'New'), ('assigned','Assigneed'), ('in_progress', 'In Progress'),('resolved','Resolved'),('rejected','Rejected'),('closed','Closed')], 'Status')


I need to compare the current state of a record object to take appropriate actions.

Is there a method to get the current state of the record object?

Answer

An environment wraps data for ORM records:

  • 'cr', the current database cursor.

  • 'uid', the current user id.

  • 'context', the current context dictionary.

In new API, self will represent/store current/class level information.

self.state will give you current state of record. You can use in any ORM method or function/computed fields as well.
