Solution

  1. Create a bundle with a Pimcore Backend Interface java script extension as described here.

  2. Implement a listener for the postOpenObject event like follows:


pimcore.plugin.sample = Class.create(pimcore.plugin.admin, {

    postOpenObject: function (object, type) {
        
        if (object.data.general.o_className == 'ShopProduct') {
    
            object.toolbar.add({
                text: t('show-pdf'),
                iconCls: 'pimcore_icon_pdf',
                scale: 'small',
                handler: function (obj) {
                    //do some stuff here, e.g. open a new window with an PDF download
                }.bind(this, object)
            });
            pimcore.layout.refresh();
        }    
    }
});
