I was looking for something like "reply button" As this is in messaging sytem of Openerp7. I want the reply button in the form view of a record. As I have included the following in my views:

<div class="oe_chatter">
                    <field name="message_follower_ids" widget="mail_followers"/>
                    <field name="message_ids" widget="mail_thread"/>

I am getting the chatter in the bottom, but I was looking for the reply button as a thread . As it is in the Messaging. I Changed the mail.js In mail_thread Widget I changed the init function with 'show_reply_button': true, The reply button is appearing but when I click on reply it doesnot open in the thread. And there is very little help or no help available on net and documentation is not rich so as to reach somewhere near to my requirements.

I got the answer I updated the mail.js with the following:

    init: function (parent, node) {
            this._super.apply(this, arguments);
            this.node = _.clone(node);
            this.node.params = _.extend({
                'display_indented_thread': 1,
                'show_reply_button': true,

            }, this.node.params);
