Launch a wizard with Save button

Hi all,

I would need to modify the Save button effect so that it:

- saves current record as usual

- launches a wizard

I overrided the write function as follows:



def write(self, vals):

print vals

if vals.get('start_time', False) or vals.get('duration', False):

vals['end_time'] = (

vals.get('start_time', False) or self.start_time or 0) +\

(vals.get('duration', False) or self.duration or 0)

super(ShiftTemplate, self).write(vals)

view = self.env['ir.model.data'].get_object_reference(

'coop_shift', 'view_update_shifts_form')

view_id = view and view[1] or False

return {

'type': 'ir.actions.act_window',

'res_model': 'update.shifts.wizard',

'view_mode': 'form',

'view_type': 'form',

'res_id': self.id,

'views': [(view_id, 'form')],

'view_id': [view_id],

'target': 'new',

'nodestroy': True,



But this dosn't work: the save button just saves current record and doesn't launch my wizard.

Any idea?
