<button type="action" string="submit" name= "198" class="oe_highlight"/>

Create new action for that model/object for form related and add that action id on button like.

action:
<record model="ir.actions.act_window" id="action_model_name_form">
        <field name="name">Your form name</field>
        <field name="type">ir.actions.act_window</field>
        <field name="res_model">your.model</field>
        <field name="view_type">form</field>
        <field name="view_mode">form</field>
        <field name="view_id" ref="model_form_id"/>
    </record>
Button:
<button type="action" string="submit" name= "action_for_form" class="oe_highlight"/>
