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!!

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

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


Otherwise it will not work
