I have to make a field invisible if the following conditions came,

  cond1:the field file_type=Trademark


Is the following code is correct?

                <field name="file_no_tm" attrs="{'invisible':['|',('file_type','!=','Trademark'),('groups','=','trademark_user')]}"/>   

It cause the following error..

Uncaught Error: Unknown field groups in domain ["|",["file_type","!=","Trademark"],["groups","=","trademark_user"]]

For any domain in Odoo the left hand side of operator in tuple or out of three values ('groups','=','Trademark') first value must be a field belonging to that specific model. In your case it tries to find the field name "groups", in the model for which you have created this view and I think you will not be having any of the field named "groups" in your model, that is why it is throwing you an error.

If you want to add groups than you should try

<field name=<<field name>> groups=<<xml id of group along with module name - module_name.groupname>> />

Changed :

<field name="field name" attrs="{'invisible':[('field1','=','value1')]}" groups="xml id of group along with module name - module_name.groupname" />

Here it will apply OR condition between groups and attrs. So, any one is correct then user can see this field.

Error caused,,XMLSyntaxError: AttValue: " or ' expected
