## Compute Method In Odoo

**COMPUTE METHOD IN ODOO;**

Compute method is used for making a field value as compute value .

- First you need to write the fuction for compute field in python file

eg: **def compute_total_estimate(self)** like this,

- Then you can create the corresponding xml file

Syntax as follows:

**<Computed_value> = field.Char(compute=’<function name>’)**

Here <Computed_value> filed value cannot be added by the user the value inside it can only be declared through the ‘<function name>’ function.

In Practical Case:

total_estimate=fields.Char(string=’Total Estimate ‘, compute=**‘compute_total_estimate’**)

**Here compute=’compute_total_estimate’ is the function name.**
