you can return the following values on the click of button. It will print the report.

        return {
            'type': 'ir.actions.report.xml',
            'report_name': '<name.of.your.report>',
            'datas':< { data : which you want to use in the report } >,

You can find this kind of ex. in the account module.

In odoo V8 you can use as like below.

    def _print_report(self, cr, uid, ids, data, context=None):
        if context is None:
            context = {}
        data['form'].update(self.read(cr, uid, ids, ['initial_balance', 'amount_currency'])[0])
        return self.pool['report'].get_action(cr, uid, [], 'account.report_partnerledger', data=data, context=context)


Expected:} at the end of } !!
