Miguel, you should never change an OpenERP source file, you should develop a custom module which inherits and modify the view.

This post is rather old but a simple valid example: https://simahawk.wordpress.com/2010/10/04/openerp-how-to-add-a-custom-field-to-an-object/

Best regards.

Thank you. I'll try. But I don't changed the source files. I edit the form directly in OpenERP.

If you do not want to write a module for that you can create a new view which inherits the original view.

Here is an example of the XML architecture of a new view if you want to change the field standard_price in product.product:

               <field name="standard_price" position="replace">
                   <field name="standard_price" invisible="1"/>

If when I update modules in OpenERP the view don't reset to default view, maybe it can works for me.
