2011-11-14 05:30 <zxq9> Anyone from OpenHex here?
2011-11-14 08:12 <zxq9> Is it always necessary to derive a class from ModelWorkflow to use buttons?
2011-11-14 10:56 <zxq9> Is there a default widget for fields.Time()?
2011-11-14 10:57 <cedk> zxq9: no because there is no fields.Time
2011-11-14 11:37 <zxq9> ?
2011-11-14 11:43 <cedk> zxq9: oh yes
2011-11-14 11:43 <cedk> zxq9: so there is no widgets
2011-11-14 11:43 <zxq9> trytond/model/fields/ -- but yes, no widget
2011-11-14 11:43 <zxq9> Is there a convenient one in GTK, I wonder?
2011-11-14 11:44 <zxq9> Should be easy to implement, I just don't know GTK very well.
2011-11-14 11:45 <zxq9> I might do it next week just to learn about GTK. (I've been doing Qt4/C++ lately, this is actually the first time I've used Python, too)
2011-11-14 11:49 <cedk> zxq9: indeed it will be a good contribution, it will allow to replace the float_time widget
2011-11-14 12:08 <nicoe> jmsbrry: in singapour ? I hope you have a decent flight back to australia.
2011-11-14 12:09 <jmsbrry> nicoe: thanks very much
2011-11-14 13:27 <Pander> Hi all, I have implemented searching in categories but it can be optimised I think, also sorting category column in party tree view is hard to enable. It would please me if someone can give my some extra pointer on
2011-11-14 14:24 <cedk> FYI, there is an PG extension for storing (key, value)
2011-11-14 14:24 <cedk>
2011-11-14 14:25 <cedk> I think it can replace the MongoDB modules of Openlabs
2011-11-14 15:24 <zxq9> I saw a discussion about this earlier and I can't find it now. How do I insert a picture from the database into an ODT?
2011-11-14 15:24 <zxq9> Through a report, of course.
2011-11-14 15:32 -!- ciupicri(~ciupicri@unaffiliated/ciupicri) has joined #tryton
2011-11-14 15:34 <udono> zxq9: hi, look at the relatorio documentation and demofiles.
2011-11-14 15:38 <zxq9> I am. Just haven't found anything about pictures yet. I suppose its there, somewhere.
2011-11-14 15:40 <zxq9> Ah, frame.
2011-11-14 15:46 <zxq9> How do I make a binary field in Tryton which contains image data an "expression when evaluated returns a couple whose first element is a file object and second element is its mimetype"?
2011-11-14 16:07 <udono> zxq9: I have done this in the past, but I don't remember how.
2011-11-14 16:10 <nicoe> zxq9: you don't create a field for this
2011-11-14 16:10 <nicoe> either you use always the same mimetype and then use this mimetype in the expression
2011-11-14 16:10 <nicoe> or you have two fields one for the data, the other for the mimetype
2011-11-14 16:11 <nicoe> case1 : image: ('image/png', object.image)
2011-11-14 16:11 <nicoe> case2 : image: (object.mimetype, object.image)
2011-11-14 16:12 <nicoe> I don't remember exactly the syntax but you've got the idea
2011-11-14 16:14 <zxq9> OK, this makes more sense. I'll try.
2011-11-14 16:18 <zxq9> Hmm... not quite as straightforward as it sounds.
2011-11-14 16:19 <zxq9> I'll figure it out eventually, I suppose. I wonder why we can't just pass something like a general "OLE" object or whatever to OpenOffice (openoffice is smart enough to pull its own metadata/doesn't care what the specific image type is).
2011-11-14 16:22 <cedk> zxq9: indeed no
2011-11-14 16:24 <cedk> zxq9: indeed it is not possible to autodetect with 100% accuracy the type of a file
2011-11-14 16:25 <zxq9> Users are much worse at it than computers, though. I don't expect to get reliable answers from the user if I add a "mimetype" field in the form next to the picture.
2011-11-14 16:26 <zxq9> But OpenOffice lets me drag&drop image files into text documents with no issue.
2011-11-14 16:26 <zxq9> If we can grab onto whatever method it is that openoffice uses to permit that, we could make image insertion much easier.
2011-11-14 16:27 <cedk> zxq9: I guess it rely on the DnD protocol of the OS
2011-11-14 16:28 <zxq9> Or the desktop manager, anyway. But somehow this works across OSes and across window managers within the same OS -- so something is generalized here that should be usable.
2011-11-14 16:29 <zxq9> It would require a bit of time to figure out. Which means *after* I figure out how to get this to work the current way first. :-)

2011-11-14 23:57 <zodman> cedk: on Telesight videos you start talking ? at part1 ?
2011-11-14 23:57 <zodman> or you on left ?
