Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
There are many example of fields visible only when the user is part of a group like this line of code from mrp module.
<field name="product_uom" class="oe_inline" readonly="1" groups="product.group_uom"/>
How can we do the opposite?????? I want to hide a field when part of a group.
To be more specific, my module is adding an option to use pounds as UoM for weight for product. Odoo only handle KG and as much as I like the international system, we mainly use pounds here in Canada! So my module will hide the weight field and show weight_lb instead. The showing was easy, but hiding the first, not so much...
Yes, You can do it.
First create your form view. Then inherit the view also specify the groups.
For example in sale order form view, i want to make the customer reference field invisible for group user.
<record id="view_order_form_cust_ref_readonly" model="ir.ui.view"> <field name="name">sale.order.form.readonly.cust</field> <field name="model">sale.order</field> <field name="inherit_id" ref="sale.view_order_form"/> <field name="groups_id" eval="[(6, 0, [ref('base.group_user') ])]"/> <field name="arch" type="xml"> <field name='client_order_ref'" position="attributes"> <attribute name="invisible">1</attribute> </field> </field> </record>
Hope above code help for you.
