Open record in new tab

When checking a tree view I want to be able to double click in a record and open the form view in a new tab.

Let's assume my model is something like:

class new_model(osv.osv):
    _name= model.name
    ...
new_model()

I tried this but it is not working!

<record id="action_view_model_new_tab" model="ir.actions.act_window">
  <field name="name">Open New Tab</field>
  <field name="type>ir.actions.act_window</field>
  <field name="res_model>model.name</field>
  <field name="view_type">form</field>
  <field name="view_mode">tree,form</field>
</record>
<record id="ir_open_model_new_tab" model="ir.values">
  <field name="key2">tree_but_open</field>
  <field name="model">model.name</field>
  <field name="name">Open in New Tab</field>
  <field name="value" eval="'ir.actions.act_window,+str(ref(action_view_model_new_tab))/>
  <field name="object>True</field>
</record>

ADDED INFO:

I also tried doing this:

<record id="action_view_model_tree" model="ir.actions.act_window">
  <field name="name">Open Tree View</field>
  <field name="type>ir.actions.act_window</field>
  <field name="res_model>model.name</field>
  <field name="view_type">form</field>
  <field name="view_mode">tree</field>
</record>
<record id="action_view_model_new_tab" model="ir.actions.act_window">
  <field name="name">Open New Tab</field>
  <field name="type>ir.actions.act_window</field>
  <field name="res_model>model.name</field>
  <field name="view_type">form</field>
  <field name="view_mode">form</field>
  <field name="target">new</field>
</record>
<record id="ir_open_model_new_tab" model="ir.values">
  <field name="key2">tree_but_open</field>
  <field name="model">model.name</field>
  <field name="name">Open in New Tab</field>
  <field name="value" eval="'ir.actions.act_window,+str(ref(action_view_model_new_tab))/>
  <field name="object>True</field>
</record>

Assuming that there is a way to open the tree view (e.g. a menu item or something else). But doing this, has the effect that the double click causes a refresh of the tree view and nothing else. And also, the form button is not clickable.

Hi, thanks for th vote and edited answer for url, but now I have a bug on my rights to mark my answer as correct, see : http://help.openerp.com/question/4051/bug-on-this-forum-right-lost-for-function-mark-after-moderation-of-a-user-answer/

Hi,

in an action definition, target set to new open the view in a new window :

<field name="target">new</field>

but this is for the action which dispaly the view tree or form.

I think you should add a button in tree line which will open a new window using a function.

you have an example here which open an url but to modify naturally (add the beginning of url h t t p : / /, I can't add actually link url because I have not enaugh Karma):

Bye

Thank for your answer. I am aware of the use of target>new. Moreover, I tried doing what I added to my question but it does not work either! It seems then, that it is not possible to do what I want? Open with the double click a new window/tab? I do not like adding a button to the view just for this! Anyway, thanks again for the answer!

Hi, I think to do what you want you should be obliged to create a new type of tree view in web module ..., or try to overwrite action which open the form, but I don't no where. If somebody knows ... Bye
