How To Create Smart Button In Odoo

When creating smart buttons in Odoo, you must tie together several aspects of Odoo development. Below are the basic steps to creating a smart button with example code segments.

1)   Add required fields to the model so you can store your records.

position_filled_count = fields.Integer(compute="_compute_applicant_count")
#compute method will compute the count in the smart button

def _compute_applicant_count(self):

                       for res in self:

                       total_len = len(self.env['job_applicant'].search([('job_type', '=', res.id)]))

                       res.position_filled_count = total_len

2)   Then, we will write the method in py file:

def button_applicant_backend(self):

           return {

           'name': ('Job Applicants'), #This is form name, which you can edit according to you

           'view_mode': 'tree,form', #Here we give view mode type

           'res_model': 'job_applicant', #Here we will provide model name for the form view

           'type': 'ir.actions.act_window', #This is action which is predefined

           'domain': [('job_type','=',self.id)] #Here we are call required field, with the help of "self" which invokes a record rule

3)   Create a form view and tree view and create an action of the form view. While creating the form view, add the smart button in the form

//while creating a form view add the smart button under sheet:

            <div class="oe_button_box">

            <button class=" oe_stat_button" name="button_applicant_backend"

                        type="object" icon="fa-user">

                       <field name="position_filled_count" />
