Importance of space while applying Group Acess on menu item in OpenERP

How to apply more than one groups to menu item on Openerp.


Xml file :

<menuitem id="sub_menu_id" parent="main_menu" name="Reports" groups="base.group_hr_manager,user_define_group" />

Here I have given two groups to the Menu item. so this menu only visible to those user who has access of this two groups.

Note :  (Improtance of space).

When you apply more than two groups on specific menu than don't give space between two groups just separate it with comma ','  other wise there will be an error raise No such external ID.

Wrong Ways.

 <menuitem id="sub_menu_id" parent="main_menu" name="Reports" groups="base.group_hr_manager, user_define_group" />

Dictionary Sort by Key in Python

You can easily  sort your dictionary by using collections class in python
Either your key is string or integer, you can sort it.

E.g : Sort Dictionary by key (key in string format)

import collections

dict_data = {'a': 'Anil', 'p': 'pinal', 'c': 'chintan', 'z': 'zinal', 'b': 'Bonil','A':'Atul','h':'Haridk','d':'Dhanvit'}

sorted_dict = collections.OrderedDict(sorted(dict_data.items()))

print "Sorted Dict :::",sorted_dict

O/p : Sorted Dict::: OrderedDict([('A', 'Atul'), ('a', 'Anil'), ('b', 'Bonil'), ('c', 'chintan'), ('d', 'Dhanvit'), ('h', 'Haridk'), ('p', 'pinal'), ('z', 'zinal')])

Returns list of tuples

Same way you can sort your dictionary having integer key.

 dict_data = {2:3, 1:89, 4:5, 3:0}
 sorted_dict = collections.OrderedDict(sorted(dict_data.items()))
 print "Sorted Dict :::",sorted_dict
