Hi I have created an openerp 7 custom module. I am using eclipse IDE with Python for debugging. I have added 2 fields in my module and is working fine . But on adding the 3rd field am having "xml architecture " error .

1) I cant resolve this issue

2) Next thing is that I want to add field for image attachment . So that users can attach their image along with their account. How can this be done?

Hopes for suggestion

In regards to 2): add the field into your python file with:

'image': fields.binary("Image", help="Select image here"),

and into you view xml file with:

<field name="image" widget='image' />

As for question 1) you will need to provide more details or a proper stacktrace. XML architecture errors could refer to any number of things.

" Error occurred while validating the field(s) arch: Invalid XML for View Architecture! " I am having this error

As I said, you will need to provide more details about the error, theres no way to tell whats wrong with that message alone...Edit your post with your actual code so we can have hope of seeing what the issue is, or post the full stack trace from the openerp log
