The widget can be used on geometry fields:

<record id="some_model_form_view" model="ir.ui.view">
  <field name="name">Some form view</field>
  <field name="model">some.model</field>
  <field name="arch" type="xml">
      <field name="geom1" widget="geo_edit_map" options="{'add_layer_fields': ['geom2']}"/>
      <field name="geom2" invisible="1"/>

Options can contain other geometry fields to display them on the same map as a readonly layer.

Important changes in version 11

The geometry attributes must now be explicitly mentioned in the list of fields of the XML geoengine view definitions. For instance:

<record id="some_model_geo_view" model="ir.ui.view">
  <field name="name">Some data view</field>
  <field name="model">some.model</field>
  <field name="arch" type="xml">
      <field name="name" select="1"/>
      <field name="the_geom"/>

Known issues / Roadmap

  • Google layers have been removed as it was not working anyway.
  • Switching from map to form view should be eased to open selected feature. It should work using do_switch_view and this probably requires to set self.dataset.index
  • A good way to open a record from map should be done with double click. However selection handlers have difficulties to work nice with click events.
