It is because a field depends of the field state, but in the view there is not that field so just add

<field name="state" invisible="1"/>

this solved my problem

In the view, do have 'state' field???

Yes. I've actually done this two ways, by having <field name="state"/> and also using <field name="state" widget="statusbar"/>

verify if you display the state field

<field name="state" widget="statusbar" statusbar_visible="draft,sent,progress,done"  statusbar_colors='{"invoice_except":"red","waiting_date":"blue"}'

I have no state field in my form. OEP version that I use is 7.0-20130403-231707, it may be a bug.

Best to post your reply as a COMMENT, not an ANSWER. Either you need to remove the domain or add the field. If you post your XML it may be easier to spot the problem.

I do not understand me, I do not see any fields in the xml state. The parser can be confused fields state_id with fields state? is it possible?

on 4/11/13, 12:10 PM

No. The parser won't get confused. Something is referring to state and you need to find out what.

Are you using a workflow? That refers to state.

There is a domain on one of the fields on your form that is using the STATE field, but this field is not available on the form.

I think that you have a field on your code or your view calling state. Maybe invisible or readonly.

I had this exact same problem, and I think I fixed it by giving "state" a default value:

_defaults = {
    'state': 'new'

I'm not positive that's what fixed it because I was tracking a number of issues at the time, but my theory is that OpenERP didn't actually add the field into the domain until it actually needed it.
