I'm trying to inherit an Export controller on OpenERP v7.0. I've tried some suggestions found on the web but with no success. Could someone point me to the right direction cuz I can't find a problem with my code.

The code below is within my custom module and it gets loaded during server launch.

import openerp.addons.web.controllers.main as main

class ExportFormatInherited(main.Export):
    _cp_path = "/web/export"

    def get_fields(self, req, model, prefix='', parent_name= '',
                   import_compat=True, parent_field_type=None,
        print 'inherited'
        super(ExportFormatInherited, self).get_fields(req, model, prefix,
                                                      parent_name, import_compat,
                                                      parent_field_type, exclude)

Python super() and the MRO !!!

Not seeing what's in your code and in your log, all i can say is:

You should read the following:

Understanding Python’s ‘super’

Python’s super() considered super!
