I am getting this error:

Odoo Client Error

TypeError: Argument 1 of XMLSerializer.serializeToString is not an object.


When trying to do manage view on the Product Form.

I am trying to change the Internal Reference Number and change it to just say SKU and make the EAN13 Barcode to invisible.

Any help would be appericaited.

I had similar issues when trying to add a custom field for the Products page.

Click on Manage views and select the "product.template.common.form".

It will show you all the different tabs of the product pages under "Notebook".

Add / Edit / Delete the fields you do not want very easily.

Same to me: "Argument 1 of XMLSerializer.serializeToString is not an object." when trying just to change the Position of the field by pressing the green arrow.

Can anyone help please?
