Hi Mohammed,

try this method for your button object:

  def button_function(self, cr, uid, ids, context):
        mod_obj = self.pool.get('ir.model.data')
        res = mod_obj.get_object_reference(cr, uid, 'complete_details (your module name)', 'complete_details_form_view (your_form_view_id)')
        res_id = res and res[1] or False
            'name':'Complete Details',
            'type': 'ir.actions.act_window',
            'view_type': 'form',
            'view_mode': 'form',
            'view_id': [res_id],

hi Vasanth Thamks for your reply But i got this error File "/home/amz05/odoo/odoo-server/openerp/addons/base/ir/ir_model.py", line 924, in xmlid_lookup raise ValueError('External ID not found in the system: %s' % (xmlid)) ValueError: External ID not found in the system: ip_local.view_file_details_form
