Add a button for search more

Add a button for “search more” in the required model and assign the shortcut key to the button using the data hot-key attribute.

Now, Let's create the search more button in sale, order model and add shortcut key "W" to the button.

<record id="sale_order_views_inherited" model="ir.ui.view">

<field name="name">sale.order.form.inherit</field>

<field name="model">sale.order</field>

<field name="inherit_id" ref="sale.view_order_form"/>

<field name="arch" type="xml">

<xpath expr="//button[@name='action_confirm']" position="after">

<button name="action_search_more" type="object" id="action_search_more" data-hotkey="W" string="Search More" class="btn-primary"/>




In the backend view, you can see the serach more shortcut in the required model:


When pressing ALT+W on the keyboard, it triggers the search more button function (action_search_more) in the sale order.

def action_search_more(self):

action = self.env.ref('product.product_template_action_all') return{

'name': 'Product',

'res_model': 'product.template', 'type': 'ir.actions.act_window', 'view_mode': 'tree',

'view_type': 'tree',

'views': [(self.env.ref('product.product_template_tree_view').id, 'list')], 'target': 'new',



After calling the function in the backend, it will look like this.
