I am developing a module that display a lot of pictures. I want to create a thumbnail each time user upload a picture.

How can I trigger automatically a function when the user creates a record (= upload a picture) ?

You must use the super on create function. This is an example how to use it:

def create(self, cr, uid, vals, context=None):
    res = super(YOUR_CLASSE, self).create(cr, uid, vals, context=context)
    return res

That's look more simple than expected ! Thank you very much for your fast answer.
