Do I need to inherit the entire object class of a module if I only need to modify/add another view of its xml?
I would like to ask if I need to inherit the entire object class if I only need to modify/add views to it? For example, I need to modify the Stock Move tree view to hide some columns. I can do this via the web client but if there are too many modifications I would like to create a module for it then inherit the view instead.
However, the module comes with the .py file and it should contain the object class of the view I am inheriting, so in return I would inherit the entire object class of stock.move even though I am not adding fields or modifying functions.
Its possible for a module to only have .py file but is it possible also to only have the .xml file?
