dev : how to add wizard/menuitem to another module

on 3/31/14, 6:44 PM 2,383 views

I try to add - a new menu Item from another module, but parent=x doesn't work

<menuitem id="my_config_menu" name="test" parent="base.menu_purchase_root" action="test.test_action"/>


raise ValueError('No such external ID currently defined in the system: %s.%s' % (module, xml_id)) ValueError: No such external ID currently defined in the system: base.menu_purchase_root

I also have difficulties at adding a wizard to another module, let say sales_order...

Seems that this comes from the same issue. Am I supposed to inherit the view ?? I found nothing about it, and inherit the model is not needed here... By adding wizard am I also supposed to inherit something ?

Have add purchase in depend. __openerp__.py file
