Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
It's a bit confusing for me : I would like to modify / override a button displayed in the header of a form to match the action of the button to one of mine defined in Configuration -> Actions -> Actions.
An example: I've defined a new action which type is "ir.actions.report.xml" to output a special report for the sale.order form. I would like to replace the print button in the header of this form by one to launch my new action. I found the line : button name="print_quotation" string="Print" type="object" states="draft" class="oe_highlight" groups="base.group_user"
But what's next ? override with a new button ? Which is the button "type" I need to fill in my xml ?
Many thanks for your advices. Regards.
You need to inherit the
sale.order view in you custom module and then try the following code.
Following code will replace the button:
<button name="print_quotation" position="replace"> <button name="%(your_action)d" string="Print" type="action" states="draft" class="oe_highlight"/> </button>
After this, you need to update your module.

Thank you for your answer.
After searching deep, I don't need to change the default button action. I must change the default report opened by the button.
Doing this manually is like : Configuration -> Actions -> Reports remove the 'standard' sale order for example and make my new report service name = sale.order
But the problem is that OpenERP will rollback my changes at each module update.
I can create a new module to define my report but how do I delete the entry brought by sale_order module ? : report auto="False" id="report_sale_order" model="sale.order" name="sale.order" rml="sale/report/sale_order.rml" string="Quotation / Order" usage="default"/>
