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

The way to do it is to assign the same action of the submenu you want to the top level menu. For example:

<menuitem name="Top" id="top" action="action2"/>
<menuitem name="Menu 1" id="menu1" action="action1" parent="top"/>
<menuitem name="Menu 2" id="menu2" action="action2" parent="top"/>

That way when the "Top" menu is clicked it will launch the action2 that is the same as the "Menu 2". This will no affect the rest of the menus to be showed or anything else. You can see this behavior on some old dashboards that don't have a menu assigned just a top level menu that trigger the action that show it

This way, I can open the right view when I click on the menu. The view opens. But the sub-menu is not rightly selected. No submenu is selected (changed color). But I get the view I want. Thanks.

The only way I know to change this is to change the sequence, which moves another menu to the 'top' position.
