From a tree/list view, if you select several records and do a print or click a Menu from More, the selected records' ID will be passed to the action in the context's active_ids.  If you are printing a report however, the active_ids have usually been translated to a list of browseable objects that you can use, say, in repeatIn('o', objects), where objects is a list of browseable objects.

Hi ivan, I am trying to call a method using more menu, in which i needed the id of the selected sale order id in the list/tree view so that i could use it in the method, but the problem is i cant able to use the keyword ids as a argument in the method it shows error like this.......... "name 'ids' is not defined" while evaluating u'self. sale_order_view_id(self, cr, uid,ids,context=None)'

OK, let me just gather some facts first. You said that you are calling a method using more menu. So, you have a ir.actions.server defined for this, right? What does the ir.actions.server calls? You can find sample of this in odoo/addons/stock/wizard/stock_partial_move_view.xml. The method called belongs to stock.move model which is defined in odoo/addons/stock/stock.py

Yes it is possible. Create a wizard model with many2many field to sale.order model, then before showing the wizard, create the wizard first and seed the ids that you have gotten to the many2many field.
