Hide a button when a field has an empty string

on 2/8/16, 7:41 AM 645 views

I would like to hide a the "Create Invoice" button on the sale order form using the invisible attribute.

However, I want to hide the button, when a specific "Char" field is not empty.

I tried the XML below but it did not work!

<button name="302" position="replace">

    <button name="302" string="Create Invoice" type="action" states="manual" class="oe_highlight" groups="base.group_user" attrs="{'invisible': [('x_original_order_name', '!=', '')]}"/>


How can I hide the Create Invoice button when my custom field is not empty?

Hello  Ababneh,

You can not apply "attrs" to button when type is "action"

(you can apply "attrs" when you are opening wizard from button like this)

<button name="%(action_create_payment_order)d" string="Invoices"  type="action" attrs="{'invisible':[('state','=','done')]}" />

Try to remove the states keyword, and try as e.g: attrs="{'invisible':['|',('x_original_order_name','!=',''),('state','!=', 'manual')]}"
