Hi, I'm new and maybe this is simple to do or asked many times, but I can't find the answer.

I'm trying to display a popup (with a view inside) when a view is displayed and a condition fulfilled.

Actually I'm trying to show a form, if customer is empty I'd like to show a popup with customer selector, but I'm completely lost about launching the pop up or calling an action when a view is displayed.



Are you trying to say.. you need a wizard (pop up window) to be displayed ? If so you can refer, CRM oppurtunity => convert to Quote .....

Thanks, but I need the window to open as soon as I open the main view. Not clicking any button.

Thanks deep, it's a good answer, although it raises a new one. I will continue in another thread.

Deep, please convert your answer about default_get in an answer or copy in an answer and I'll select as the correct answer.

You have some different pop ups!, wizards with target "new" and Warning messages.

What exactly do you need? 

Thanks for your answer. I needed a popup with a view where I can select the customer (many2one). Anyway it got answered in the comments to the original question.
