Problem with Menu Items in my module

on 6/16/16, 2:47 AM 1,093 views

I'm trying to make a new navigation point at the topbar navigation in odoo8

With this I can make that with a navigation on the left side.

       <record model="ir.actions.act_window" id="buttons_example_action">
<field name="name">timesheet NEW</field>
<field name="res_model">hr_timesheet_sheet.sheet</field>
<field name="view_type">form</field>
<field name="view_mode">form,tree</field>
<field name='view_id' ref='test.hr_timesheet_sheet_form_presence'/>

<!-- top level menu: no parent -->
<menuitem id="main_button_menu" name="Timesheet Head Menu"/>
<menuitem id="button_menu" name="Timesheet NEW" parent="main_button_menu"/>
<menuitem id="menu_detail_logging" parent="button_menu" action="buttons_example_action" sequence="20"/>

My problem is now, that when I want more links on the left navigation, I can't get it.

How can I make that easly with the first navigation "timesheet NEW" linked to the hr_timesheet_sheet.sheet  view?

Why I'm getting error, I only want to link the timesheet view in the action. can someone help?

        <menuitem id="main_menu" name="Test Topbar"/>

<menuitem id="section_main_menu" parent="main_menu" />

<menuitem id="real_menu" parent="section_main_menu" action="act_hr_timesheet_sheet_form"/>

maybe because you have no sub menu ;)

Add one submenu under partners and it should works...
