Overview of this book

With its latest iteration, the powerful Odoo framework released a wide variety of features for rapid application development. This updated Odoo development cookbook will help you explore the new features in Odoo 14 and learn how to use them to develop Odoo applications from scratch. You'll learn about the new website concepts in Odoo 14 and get a glimpse of Odoo's new web-client framework, the Odoo Web Library (OWL). Once you've completed the installation, you'll begin to explore the Odoo framework with real-world examples. You'll then create a new Odoo module from the ground up and progress to advanced framework concepts. You'll also learn how to modify existing applications, including Point of Sale (POS) applications. This book isn't just limited to backend development; you'll discover advanced JavaScript recipes for creating new views and widgets. As you progress, you'll learn about website development and become a quality Odoo developer by studying performance optimization, debugging, and automated testing. Finally, you'll delve into advanced concepts such as multi-website, In-App Purchasing (IAP),, the IoT Box, and security. By the end of the book, you'll have all the knowledge you need to build impressive Odoo applications and you'll be well versed in development best practices that will come in handy when working with the Odoo framework.

Displaying offers when an account lacks credits

If you make an IAP service request after all of the purchased credits are consumed, then the service module will generate InsufficientCreditError, and the client-side module will handle this error automatically and display a popup. Whenever all of your IAP account credit is consumed, Odoo will display a popup as in the following screenshot to prompt the purchase of more credit:

Figure 17.12 – An alert shown for an insufficient balance

The default popup is too simple and does not provide enough information. In this recipe, we will look at how you can change the content of this popup with an attractive template.

Getting ready

We will be using the iap_isbn_service module for this recipe. The offer template is created on the IAP service provider module, so it can be changed at any time without updating the client module.
