How to hide the left sidebar?

on 2/15/13, 6:13 AM 8,104 views

Is it possible to hide the sidebar by clicking its right edge? Any configuration option or module for that?

+1 The left sidebar is a really hurdle on small displays such as a 7" tablet.

I mentioned the idea to openerp, on launchpad, several months ago but will be included in openerp 8. I would also like this feature

It's not possible at the moment, but probably feasible via a web module.
You'll find the documentation about the web-client and web modules creation over here: http://doc.openerp.com/trunk/developers/web/

Thanks all above. Maybe a feature request for v8 :)

Yep, could be ! Do not forget to accept your favorite answer, which in this Q&A format is just like flagging a question as [Solved] ;)

https://github.com/OpenSur/Odoo_addons web_menu_hide both for v7 and v8. But you have to rename folder name to be consistent with the code inside. Thanks

What do you rename the folder to? (I tried installing directly, and I tried renaming the folder, but the XML view shows web_menu_hide_8, so I changed that too, and still it won't work.)

Right now no any default configuration available in official OpenERP.

Yes, Its possible by writing good web module.
