$anothervariable =& $variablename; (Assign by Reference)

Declare Array
$arrayname = array();

Initialize Array
$arrayname = array(<value1>, <value2>, <value3>);
$arrayname = array(<key> => <value>, <key> => <value>); (Define Keys)
$multiarray = array(<key> => array(<value1>,<value2>)); (Multi-dimensional)

sort(<array>); (Sort array assigns new keys)
asort(<array>); (Sort array maintain keys)
rsort(<array>); (Sort array in reverse, new keys)
arsort(<array>); (Sort array in reverse, maintain keys)
count(<array>); (Count elements)
count(<array>,COUNT_RECURSIVE); (Count multidimensional array)

Assignment Operators
= (Assign), += (Addition), -= (Subtraction), *= (Multiplication), /= (Division), .=
(Concatenation), %= (Modulus), &= (And), |= (Or), ^= (Exclusive Or), <<= (Left Shift), >>=(Right Shift)

String Concatenation
. (Period)

String Manipulation
ltrim(<string>); // Trim left
rtrim(<string>); // Trim right
strpos(<string>, <search>);
strcmp(<string1>,<string2>); (Binary safe string comparison)
strcasecmp(<string1>,<string2>); (Binary safe case-insensitive comparison)
explode(<delim>,<string>,[<limit>]); (Break string into array)
implode(<delim>,<array>); (Join array into string separated by delim)

setcookie (<cookiename>, [<value>],[<expire_time_in_secs_since_epoch>]);
$_COOKIE['cookiename']; (Returns value of cookie)

session_start(); (Create session)
$_SESSION['key_name'] = value; (Set session variable)
$variablename = $_SESSION['key_name']; (Retrieve value from session variable)
session_destroy(); (Destroy session)

Error Handling
try {
<statements that may cause error>;
catch (<Exception Class> $exception_name)
<statements to execute when error is caught>;

Super Globals
$GLOBALS (Access all global variables in script)
$_SERVER (Access web server variables)
$_GET (Values passed to script through URL)

{ <statement 3>; }

Inline If (Ternary)
<condition> ? true : false;

For Loop
for (<initialize>;<condition>;<update>)

For Each Loop
foreach (<array> as [<value> |<key> => <value>])

While Loop
while (<condition>)

Do-While Loop
} while (<condition>);

switch (<expression>)
case <literal or type>:
case <literal or type>:

Function Structure
function <function_name>([<parameters>])
[return <value>;]

Class Structure
class <class_name> [<extends base_class>]
[var | <modifiers*>] [<class member variables>];
[<modifiers*>] function <function_name>([<parameters>])
* Modifiers <public | pr ivate | static> are implemented in PHP5

Declare and Use Class

Odoo: Qweb Templates Cache Issue

Hi Everyone, Today I was working on a hotel booking template in Odoo and changes made in the Qweb template(.xml) were not reflecting on updating module with odoo service restart. Tried few times without any success :(. Finally, I decided to delete the old template from Odoo backend and then update module again and it worked like a charm!! :) Steps to delete template from backend: Settings --> User Interface --> Views --> Search by template name Delete the used template. Although it's a small post, but I'm sure it will meet the purpose and help someone in the future. Thanks!!! Enjoy Programming!! :) Reference Links: ===================================

Odoo/OpenERP: one2one relational field example

one2one relational field is deprecated in OpenERP version>5 but you can achieve the same using many2one relational field. You can achieve it in following two ways : 1) using many2one field in both the objects ( ) 2)  using inheritance by deligation You can easily find the first solution with little search over internet so let's start with 2nd solution. Scenario :  I want to create a one2one relation between two objects of openerp hr.employee and hr.employee.medical.details What I should do  i. Add _inherits section in hr_employee class ii. Add field medical_detail_id in hr_employee class class hr_employee(osv.osv):     _name = 'hr.employee'     _inherits = {' hr.employee.medical.details ': "medical_detail_id"}     _inherit = 'hr.employee'         _columns = {              'emp_code':fields.char('Employee Code', si
