Python Question

ValueError: dictionary update sequence element #0 has length 1; 2 is required

I am returning

5
for my computational field
old_default_code
, and I am getting the following error:


ValueError: dictionary update sequence element #0 has length 1; 2 is required


What am I doing wrong?

Python code of the function:

def _old_default_code(self, cr, uid, ids, name, arg, context=None):
return '5'
_columns = {
'old_default_code' : fields.function(_old_default_code, type='char', size=32, method=True, store=False, multi=False) }


XML code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<openerp>
<data>
<!-- mrp_bom -->
<record id="adamson_mrp_bom_form_view" model="ir.ui.view">
<field name="name">adamson.mrp.bom.form.view</field>
<field name="model">mrp.bom</field>
<field name="type">form</field>
<field name="inherit_id" ref="mrp.mrp_bom_form_view" />
<field name="arch" type="xml">

<xpath expr="//notebook/page[@string='Components']/field/tree[@string='Components']/field[@name='sequence']" position="before" >
<field name="old_default_code" />
<button class="oe_inline oe_stat_button" type="object" string="Go!" icon="gtk-go-forward" name="action_go"
attrs="{'invisible':[('old_default_code','=', '5')]}" />

</xpath>

Answer

@Nebojsa

The field.function always expect a dictionary to be returned and in your case you are just return an "Integer". The default behaviour of the system is that it expects a dictionary where the key is the "id" of the record and value is the value you want to return.

For example:

If you want to return '5' in your case and the record id is 2 then following will be the dictionary {2:5}

Note:

While doing calculation whatever ids you have got in your method for all those ids you should return a value in the dictionary, even if no value can be found/calculated then you should return at least false against those ids, but make sure you at least return some value against all the ids that you have got in your function.

Let me know if you find trouble in this

Hope this helps..
