Download a file with a button from the list view

Hello everybody,

Now when we open an attachment, we can download the file on clicking on his link.

Is there a way to download the file directly with a button from the list? Just create a button on the list view and when we click on it, it downloads the file directly without having to open the form view then click on the link.

hi Aymen,

I Have a related example with me.

Example: Need to download Perticular file in stock_picking_out tree view depend on company.

1. i need to download a file from the tree view depend on company.

create a binary field in "res.company" and from binary field select the file which u want to download.

'attachment': fields.binary("Attachmnet"),

2. create related field in stock_picking and stockpicking_out

'attachment'   : fields.related('company_id','attachment',type='binary',store=False,string="Attachmnet",readonly=True),

now we can use the attachment field in stock_picking_out tree/list view to download a file selected in res.company "attachment" binary field
