I want to echo the following block to admin order view page.

echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('compatibility/compatibilityblock')->setTemplate('tm/compatibility/savequote.phtml')->tohtml();

I have tried the following way but not worked.

echo $block = Mage::app()->getLayout()

public function __construct()
