Hello All,

         I would like to share with you how to create a Qweb report in odoo [OpenERP].let we go stap by stap to create Qweb report in odoo [OpenERP].

What is Qweb Report ??

Qweb Report is the newest version of the Odoo reporting Format and its uses the bootstrap css classes and Qweb Template Engine for Make Quick Report Design in Odoo.

About Bootstrap :

Bootstrap is a free collection of tools for creating websites and web applications.It contains HTML and CSS-based design templates for typography, forms, buttons, navigation and other interface components, as well as optional JavaScript extensions

Expressions used in Odoo report templates :

There are some magic variables used in the report rendering. The main ones are the following:
        records for the current report
        list of ids for the docs records
       model for the docs records
       a reference to time from the Python standard library

a function to translate a part of a report. It must be used as follow:
<t t-foreach="doc_ids" t-as="doc_id">
<t t-raw="translate_doc(doc_id, doc_model, 'partner_id.lang', account.report_invoice_document')"/>
     res.user record for the user printing the report
      record the current user‘s company

Custom Report

A generic report use the default rendering context, containing the magic variables as explained before. If you want a new rendering context containing anything you want to process your data Odoo AbstractModel, a custom module is needed. These reports are called “particular report”.

For a particular report, you have to write an Odoo Model containing a render_html method. Classically, this method returns a call to the original QWeb render with a custom rendering context.

from openerp import api, models

class ParticularReport(models.AbstractModel):
_name = 'report.<<module.reportname>>'
def render_html(self, data=None):
report_obj = self.env['report']
report = report_obj._get_report_from_name('<<module.reportname>>')
docargs = {
'doc_ids': ids,
'doc_model': report.model,
'docs': self.env[report.model].browse(ids),
return report_obj.render('<<module.reportname>>', docargs)
