Right now i am using Magento 1.9.1.

I am working around on the code so i can add new Status in the mass Actions select menu http://mymagento.com/index.php/admin/sales_order/index/key/944964552ee91bc0eeeb09f63a57c97e/ page.

Right now when we select some orders we have this "Actions" select menu to change the status of all selected orders.

Here you can see for which "Actions" select menu i am talking about:

enter image description here

I created new Order status.

When i opened: /public_html/beta/app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Sales/Order/Grid.php

I see the following code:

    $this->getMassactionBlock()->addItem('pdfcreditmemos_order', array(
         'label'=> Mage::helper('sales')->__('Print Credit Memos'),
         'url'  => $this->getUrl('*/sales_order/pdfcreditmemos'),

    $this->getMassactionBlock()->addItem('pdfdocs_order', array(
         'label'=> Mage::helper('sales')->__('Print All'),
         'url'  => $this->getUrl('*/sales_order/pdfdocs'),

These lines adds actions in this "Actions" select menu.

So in that manner i added my custom created Order status like this:

    $this->getMassactionBlock()->addItem('receive_in_our_office', array(
         'label'=> Mage::helper('sales')->__('Receive in our Office'),
         'url'  => $this->getUrl(''),

The problem is that when i select 'Receive in our Office' and press Submit just nothing happens. I am sure that this problem comes from my blank 'url' => $this->getUrl(''),

So guys how i can properly set my 'url' => $this->getUrl(''), to the correct URL for my custom order status with code "receive_in_our_office" ?

Thanks in advance!

For this to work you would need to make your own module with Adminhtml controller. The controller would have an action like statusAction

require_once 'Mage/Adminhtml/controllers/Sales/OrderController.php';

class [Namespace]_[Module]_Adminhtml_Sales_OrderController extends Mage_Adminhtml_Sales_OrderController
       public function statusAction()
            $orders = $this->getRequest()->getPost('order_ids', array());
            foreach ($orders as $orderId)
                $_order = Mage::getModel('sales/order')->load($orderId);
                $_order->setStatus("Receive in our Office");

                try {
                } catch(Exception $e) {


With a config.xml looking something like this

                        <[Namespace]_[Module] before="Mage_Adminhtml">[Namespace]_[Module]_Adminhtml</[Namespace]_[Module]>

Resulting in an url like: $this->getUrl('*/sales_order/status')


$this->getUrl('') give only admin url with without secret key.

And then that mean you need to add action and controllers.

As 'url' => $this->getUrl('*/sales_order/pdfdocs'), ,means your action controller class Mage_Adminhtml_Sales_OrderController function pdfinvoicesAction() you need an new action..means function here.
