How to set field value based on user group?

I have the following requirement: Let's say I have a group of users 'A' and a field 'foo', if a user belongs to group 'A' then 'foo' should be equal to zero, any other user not belonging to group 'A' should see the real 'foo' value.

Does anyone know how to achieve this?

Thanks in advance!

Rather than change the value must display or not display depending on the group

Like this

field name="foo" attrs="{'invisible':[('user','=',"A")]}" name="foo">

So I guess the value 'foo' is involved in a calculation. We must therefore change the calculation according to the group. please, be more specific.
