You can set 'target' = 'inline'. This opens a form in edit mode.

Also needed this, thank you!

Andreas, when returning an action that has 'target' = 'inline' in the case of the sale.order it indeed opens it in edit mode but the top menu (Create, Edit, Save,Print, More) disapears alltogether.Do you have any idea why that happens and how to prevent it?

This solution is not valid, because the top menus disappear from view. Is there any other way? thanks in advance.

Found this way in calendar module and it works fine :-)

Add following key into the action dict:

'flags': {'form': {'action_buttons': True, 'options': {'mode': 'edit'}}},

Just add the dictionnary flags like that and you will get buttons save/cancel and the form in edit mode:

'flags': {'initial_mode': 'edit'},

On Odoo 11, and from javascript, add this to the object:

context: {'form_view_initial_mode': 'edit','force_detailed_view': true},

I developped this module to achieve that.  install it and use 'target' : 'current_edit' to open form in edit mode 

Hi, I install your module but I have this error: except_orm: (u'ValidateError', u'The value "current_edit" for the field "ir_act_window.target" is not in the selection') Can you help me?
