Issues creating simple tree view for custom module Openerp7

I'm trying to add in a way to store data about different sites a customer may have. This is my first development, so the theory was to keep it pretty simple for now.

Managed to code the model which seems to work ok, if I import it without any xml files no errors and my extra fields show up.


Then I get to coding the view, which I have to admit I don't understand that well. I thought I'd start with tree view. the following is the closest I think I've come.


When I try to install the module with this xml it throws an error.


I really have no idea how to proceed. Been trying to get a view working for the last 5 hours.

I spotted some errors in the xml file and it's working now!

<record model="ir.actions.act_window.view" id="action_sites_view_tree">

Should be

<record model="ir.actions.act_window" id="action_sites_view_tree">

This threw another error about res_model, I noticed I missed that out so added in

<field name="res_model">site</field>

Seems like that sorted it, hopefully I can figure out the rest now.
