Hello I've got two forms in my view xml file, here's the code for it

<record model="ir.ui.view" id="myMod_form_view">
<field name="name">myMod.form</field>
<field name="model">test.myMod</field>
<field name="arch" type="xml">
<form string="My Form 1">
<sheet>
<group>
<field name="name"/>
</group>
</sheet>
</form>
</field>
</record>

<record model="ir.ui.view" id="myMod_conn_1_view">
<field name="name">myMod.form</field>
<field name="model">test.myMod</field>
<field name="arch" type="xml">
<form string="My Form 2">
<sheet>
<group string="Hello World">
</group>
</sheet>
</form>
</field>
</record>

this is the code for the button I use,

<button name='butClick' type='object' string="Click"/>

I want to return the second form to a view on a button click, I've written this code in the models.py

@api.multi
def butClick(self):
return {
'type': 'ir.actions.act_window',
'res_model': 'test.myMod',
'name': 'Testing',
'views': [[False, 'form']],
'res_id': myMod_conn_1_view,
'target' : 'new',
}

but this gives an error,

NameError: global name 'myMod_conn_1_view' is not defined


What can I do to display this second form on the button click??? Please help!!!

hey, why did you remove the answer? :|

There were some issues with Arya's answer, only the last form was called from the above code, I fixed it with some help from Arya's answer... view_id = self.env['ir.model.data'].get_object_reference('module_name', 'myMod_conn_1_view') return { 'type': 'ir.actions.act_window', 'res_model': 'test.myMod', 'name': 'Testing', 'views': [[view_id[1], 'form']], 'target' : 'new', } thank you Arya... :)

Hi Rizan,

Your code is correct. You can pass IDs of your specific tree, form in views.

In res_id, you have to pass the ID of the test.myMod object if you want to show the record of that particular ID or if you want to show all the records, remove res_id.

@api.multi
def butClick(self):
view_ref = self.env['ir.model.data'].get_object_reference('module_name', 'xmlID_of_your_form_view')
return {
'type': 'ir.actions.act_window',
'res_model': 'test.myMod',
'name': 'Testing',
'views': view_ref and view_ref[1] or False,
# 'res_id': myMod_conn_1_view,
'target' : 'new',
}

Else you can directly use view_id instead of views in your return dictionary.

return {
'type': 'ir.actions.act_window',
'res_model': 'test.myMod',
'name': 'Testing',
'view_id': view_ref and view_ref[1] or False,
# 'res_id': myMod_conn_1_view,
'target' : 'new',
}

Make sure you have given correct module name and XML ID.
