Most future-proof way to embed an iframe in a view?

on 2/25/13, 9:12 AM 1,469 views

I wish to customize the partner view form to contain an additional tab (next to History). When clicking on this tab, I wish to show an embedded iframe, where the content is sourced from a different system.

What is the best way to go about this, such that it doesn't create problems when OpenERP is upgraded?

Many thanks.

I would have thought this was quite a simple question!

Create your own view that inherits the res.partner.form view, that way whatever happens in the future your tab and your iframe will remain intact.
