I created my_product module. I have added few fields in product_product and product_template tables.

using the folling code I can add a new page . Now I want to fields from product_product table in the page.

I neither get any error nor see my field. What am I doing wrong ?


     <record id="product_normal_form_view_inherit" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">orion.product.form</field>
            <field name="model">product.template</field>
        <field name="inherit_id" ref="product.product_template_form_view"/>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
            <xpath expr="//page[@string='Sales']" position="after">
            <page name="orion" string="Orion">
         <group colspan="4">
               <field name="drawing_details" />
     <record id="product_normal_form_view_inherit1" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">orion.product.form1</field>
            <field name="model">product.product</field>
        <field name="inherit_id" ref="product_normal_form_view_inherit"/>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
        <field name="drawing_details" position="before">
            <field name="product.selectmodelyn" />

Have you tried using "label"? As in:

<field name="myfield"/>

<label for="myfield" string="My field"/>


Are the fields visible when you edit the object. Is the page itself even visible?
