Hello Odoo community,

I was thinking if there is any example that let say if invoice date is less then current date lock particular fields or field?

Any example or ideas would be appreciated

Thank you

Have you tried using the readonly attribute with something like

('date','<=', ((context_today()-datetime.timedelta(days=10)).strftime('%Y-%m-%d')))  

(I haven't - just an idea)
