But, I would prefer the normal method of entry into a menu item, like Sales, Customer menu item which gives you a tree listing of customers, a button to create and the search filter like this:

you should add these lines in your action which is called on menuitem

**<field name="view_type">form</field>

<field name="view_mode">form,tree</field>

<field name="view_id" ref="view_student_marklist_tree"/>**

in 3rd line give ref = your tree view id
