I have one2many of model A to B.

class A:

    the_bs: fields.one2many("B")

From A form view I click on one of the B items and B form view is shown with a pop up. There I have set a button and I would like to close B form when I click on it.

To close the current open window from a button action just:

return {'type': 'ir.actions.act_window_close'}

Hi, Axel. That´s how it is supposed to work but it doesn´t. Eso es lo que se supone que se haga, pero no funciona.

Then something is breaking your js code. Actionmanager if i remember ok is the one responsible for this. You need to debug to find what is going on

I already tried that. The result is that the action takes effect in the background window. The popup stays open.

Maybe make the button returns the action of the A form view (if A record still in context, else, just return A tree view)


you can try this then https://www.odoo.com/fr_FR/forum/help-1/question/solved-close-window-on-button-press-4348
