I want to use particular images in my module of odoo but it's doesn't show. 

1) create new directory in static/src/images >> add image: gi_trash.png

2) in my xml with the tree view add one button:
    <button name="action_delete_route" type="object"  icon="gi_trash" attrs="{'invisible':[('show_header','=','f')]}"> </button>

I have to include or add anything else?

Thanks for the help!!

That only works if you copy the image or create a symlink shortcut to this path:


Otherwise it will not work

Excellent answer Many thanks !!!!
