PDF in Custom Module

I`m trying to add a “Generate PDF” button in a custom module.

I follow the procedure described at the forum inthis file:

Anyway, always fail at second step, this is when I do this:

Didn´t work, after clic I have a blank screen. I can´t view the detailed view of any registry.

This is what I try:

  1. Deactivate ajax for the module, error persist.
  2. Create a new module and repeat the process. Same error again.
  3. Import the module to a clean suitecrm installation, error repeat.

I`m out of ideas. ¿Some idea, sugestion, modification?
