Is it possible to reuse all variables defined in the super() method?

Hello all,

In my custom module, I'm rewriting the create_from_ui method of pos.order class.

I would want to reuse the same variables already defined in the original create_from_ui method.

Here is my code in my custom module :

def create_from_ui(self, cr, uid, orders, context=None):
        _logger.error("create_from_ui NEW BEGIN")
        res =   super(pos_order, self).create_from_ui(cr, uid, orders, context=context)           
        #I want to use SOME VARIABLES OF THE ORIGINAL create_from_ui METHOD HERE...
        _logger.error("create_from_ui END BEGIN")
        return res

Do you know how to manage it?

So, like I thought, sometimes we have to rewrite a part of the code of the original method in the new one. To rebuild some variables.

Only those returned via 'res'.
