I want to create a custom button in magento 1 backend in **order tab.** locatation wanted for the button I want this button to be General(for all orders), but i can't find anything related to my issue. All i find it's this article article, but it not help me to much because they create a button for product catalog tab.

Dose anyone know what steps i need to follow to do this? Any advice will be greatly appreciated

  • use adminhtml/sales_order instead of adminhtml/catalog_product – Gopal Patel Apr 11 '17 at 7:03

Try Below Code :

You need to first overwrite observer : adminhtml_widget_container_html_before


After This open Observer file from model which is you overwrite :

public function addNewButton($observer)
    $container = $observer->getBlock();
    if(null !== $container && $container->getType() == 'adminhtml/sales_order') {
        $data = array(
            'label'     => 'My button',
            'class'     => 'some-class',
            'onclick'   => 'setLocation(\' '  . Mage::getUrl('*/*', array('param' => 'value')) . '\')',
        $container->addButton('my_button_identifier', $data);

    return $this;

Clear Cache and Refresh order Grid.

Happy Coding. :)
