Noop action

This module was written to have an action that does nothing. A notorious case where this is useful is buttons on popup windows, because they need to return an action. Given the default here is ir.actions.act_window_close, you'll have to jump through some hoops if you have a button that is not supposed to close the popup window.


To use this module, depend on it in your module and return:

{'type': 'ir.actions.act_window.none'}

The button will trigger a reload of the popup's form, in case you want to suppress this, set key reload to False in the action you return.
