OpenERP 7 Keyboard Shortcut

OpenERP 7 has made the menu navigation easier with the new user interface. But for a user, if he has made a sale order and need to view all the invoices in the system, he has to go to the main menu Invoicing and then select Customer Invoice / Supplier Invoice to view the invoice. It would be better to have a keyboard shortcut which help in easy navigation with the press of some buttons.

We have developed a new module named web_key_shortcut which enables the user to define key shortcut for each menu item. When the module is installed, there is a new menu created in the location Settings -> Web Shortcut -> WebShortcut Configuration. A screenshot is shown below:

Here we can add the shortcuts for each menuitems. When you click on "Add an item", a new window appers where we can specify the menu and the shortcut for that menu. The menuitem that the user has access to will only be displayed in the list. A screenshot is shown below:

User also apecify the shortcut to the manu from the active menu also. The is a new icon on the system tray which enables the user to specify the shortcut. A screenshot is shown below:

When the icon is pressed, a new prompt box appears where the user can enter the shortct keys. The shortcut will be created for the current active menu item. A screenshot is shown below:

When the manu shortcut are entered and the create button is pressed, the shrtcut will be created for the current active menu. If a shortcut is defined for browser default shortcuts like Ctrl+P, the default browser shortcut will be overrided. Please refresh the OpenERP page for the shortcuts to take effect. Each user can specify his own shortcuts. The shortcut specified by one user wll only be applicable to that user. A video showing the feature of the module is shown below:

The Module is attached with the blog. Hope this helps you...

Module can also be downloaded from launchpad bzr branch lp:~r-launchpadzbeanz/zbeanz/web_addons

It would be nice if this were to be fixed. :)

Hi,     The functionality of


    The functionality of this module and the module web_shortcut is entirely different. If you check the module you can see that after the module web_shortcut is installed, we can bookmark each menus by clicking on a star next to title and we can chose this bookmarked menus from any where to easily navigate to that view. But in my module, you can set the key shortcuts and set the shortcuts for each menu items. So based on the key stroke we can navigate to the menus...

Please test both modules to see if both are same...
