on 12/16/14, 6:59 AM 792 views

Hello, I am developing a new module in Odoo 8 and I have a problem. If I want to define a new view for an existing model, how can I do? If I create a .xml view without specifying inherit_id, I get an error when I am installing the module "the <form.....> cannot be located in parent view". How can I define a new model for an existing view? Or do not I can do this?
