Refer the Standard Module, in which they have already done what you are looking for,..

Below is a sample snippet from stock / purchase.


def action_view_picking(self):


This function returns an action that display existing picking orders of given purchase order ids.

When only one found, show the picking immediately.


action = self.env.ref('stock.action_picking_tree')

result = action.read()[0]

#override the context to get rid of the default filtering on picking type

result['context'] = {}

pick_ids = sum([order.picking_ids.ids for order in self], [])

#choose the view_mode accordingly

if len(pick_ids) > 1:

result['domain'] = "[('id','in',[" + ','.join(map(str, pick_ids)) + "])]"

elif len(pick_ids) == 1:

res = self.env.ref('stock.view_picking_form', False)

result['views'] = [(res and res.id or False, 'form')]

result['res_id'] = pick_ids and pick_ids[0] or False

return result

Tips: Use "Ctrl + H" to perform the global search in the entire addons, if you are using IDEs like Eclispse, Aptana Studio,  PyCharm etc.
