Allow users to set manually a quantity of items to display in a tree view

This module extends the functionality of web module, to improve list views and to allow users to display custom quantity of items.

To use this module, you need to:

  1. Go to a list view
  2. Click on the item '1 - 80 of xxx'
  3. Tip a custom quantity of item you want to see, and then press return

Sample for res.partner model with a limit of 3:

Technical information

  • Replace a select element by an input with datalist option. That allows to set a custom value, or to select an option. (same options as before: 80 / 200 / 500 / 2000 / unlimited);

  • WARNING: 'Datalist' is a HTML5 tag; If your browser is not HTML5 compliant, the options will not be displayed (but it is possible for user to select manually a value); See browser Support: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_datalist.asp

  • The display of the datalist input can be different depending of the browser.
