I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

You could do it like this example for sale.order report generated as preview when pressing the preview button:

from openerp import models, fields, api

class report_sale_preview(models.Model):

_inherit = 'sale.order'

preview = fields.Html('Report Preview')


def generate_preview(self):

html = self.env['report'].get_html(self, 'sale.report_saleorder')

self.write({'preview': html})

return True

And in the view

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>



<record model="ir.ui.view" id="solt_report_preview_form_view">

<field name="name">sale.order.report.preview.form</field>

<field name="model">sale.order</field>

<field name="inherit_id" ref="sale.view_order_form"/>

<field name="arch" type="xml">

<xpath expr="//page[1]" position="after">

<page string="Report Preview">


<button name="generate_preview" type="object" string="Preview"/>



<field name="preview"/>








The result is something like this:
