I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

Using a shortcut the extension could be done like this in a js file:

odoo.define('web.aek_shortcuts', function (require) {

"use strict";

var core = require('web.core');

var FormView = require('web.FormView');

var common = require('web.form_common');

var _t = core._t;

var QWeb = core.qweb;

var ctrl_count = 0;

$.ctrl_bind = function(key, namespace, callback, args) {

var ev = 'keydown.'+namespace;

$(document).on(ev, function(e) {

if(!args) args=[]; // IE barks when args is null


if((e.keyCode == key.charCodeAt(0) || e.keyCode == key) && e.ctrlKey) {

callback.apply(this, args);

return false;




$.ctrl_unbind = function(name) {

var ev = 'keydown.'+name;




init: function(parent, dataset, view_id, options) {

this._super.apply(this, arguments);

this.rendering_engine.handle_common_properties = function($new_element, $node, InvisibilityChanger) {

var str_modifiers = $node.attr("modifiers") || "{}";

var modifiers = JSON.parse(str_modifiers);

var ic = null;

if (modifiers.invisible !== undefined) {

var InvisibilityChangerCls = InvisibilityChanger || common.InvisibilityChanger;

ic = new InvisibilityChangerCls(this.view, this.view, modifiers.invisible, $new_element);


$new_element.addClass($node.attr("class") || "");

$new_element.attr('style', $node.attr('style'));

if($node[0].tagName == 'PAGE'){


var context = JSON.parse($node.attr('context'));

if(context.shortcut != undefined){


this.ctrl_count = ctrl_count;

$.ctrl_bind(context.shortcut, this.ctrl_count, function() {

$new_element[0].children[0].click();//could be used execute_action() too





return {invisibility_changer: ic,};



destroy: function() {


this._super.apply(this, arguments);




With that code installed you could define your notebook page like this:


<page string="Tab 1" context='{"shortcut": "Y"}'>
