➥ This blog will explain how to create wizards in Odoo for creating dynamic fields.

➥ First and foremost, let's talk about wizards.

➥ In Odoo, wizards are accustomed to interacting with dialogue boxes.

➥ There are primarily two types of wizard models available in Odoo:

➥ The model class is the foundation of the vast majority of Odoo models. Furthermore, it has a long-term     database, as evidenced by the accuracy of the data stored in the table rendered.

➥ The type's transitional Data structure determines the transient Model. Furthermore, the information stored     in the data set is brief in this class, and data from the data set table is fixed up on a regular basis.

➥ Odoo employs a transitory/transient model in which data is saved only temporarily and data in the wizard     only requires temporary storage. The following are the characteristics of the transient model:

➥ The wizard's data can refer to standard records or many2one fields, but standard records cannot refer to     many2one fields or wizard data.
    Because the data in the wizard requires little storage, it is re-transmitted after a while.
    Clients have all consents on wizard data; they do not require direct access rights.

➥ Readers from any industry can gain a better understanding of the next level if they consider the wizards     mentioned above.

➥ Because the readers are also students, we will go over the Odoo Module, highlights, latest highlights, and     installation before discussing how to create wizards to create dynamic fields in Odoo.

➥ This module can be used to create dynamic fields in a non-performance-critical errand. It is simple to use.     Highlights, features, and fields from the system are demonstrated.
