i am trying to load action window using python class to Open ERP. i have created and installed module on OpenERP. in that module,a user clicks on button to fill some form fields. i am using action window to display fields. but when action window opens, no field is displayed.

here is my __init__.py

import mywin

here is my __openerp__.py

    'name':'form module',
        New Form Module

here is my mywin.py

from osv import fields, osv
import time

class my_window(osv.osv):

    def display(self,cr,uid,ids,context=None):
           return {
        'view_mode': 'form',
        'view_type': 'form',
        'res_id' : '2', # id of the object to which to redirected
        'res_model': 'ir.actions.act_window', # object name
        'type': 'ir.actions.act_window',
        'target': 'new' # if you want to open the form in new tab

here is my mywin_view.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
       <record model="ir.ui.view" id="from_view_form">
            <field name="name">from.view.form</field>
            <field name="model">my.window</field>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <form string="Form" version="7.0">
                        <field name="name" />
                        <field name="bdate" />
                        <button name="display" string="Add Field" type="object"  class="oe_highlight" />

        <record model='ir.ui.view' id='2'>
