Why operator != not works?

on 3/13/15, 8:40 AM 788 views

Hello, I have Odoo 8. I want to show a field only if the value of another field is XYZ. My xml definition is:

<field name="fecha" attrs="{'invisible':[('nombre_cliente', '!=', 'XYZ')]}" />

In this case, the field is invisible if the 'nombre_cliente' is XYZ or if it is another value.

If I put: <field name="fecha" attrs="{'invisible':[('nombre_cliente', '=', 'XYZ')]}" /> it works fine because if the name is XYZ the field is invisible and in another cases the field is visible.

What is my mistake? Thanks!

try to use <> instead of !=


<field name="fecha" attrs="{'invisible':[('nombre_cliente', 'not in', [ 'XYZ' ])]}" />

-the equivalent code with "not in" operator

Not works (I try '<>')

is XYZ a really string like 'XYZ' ?

I updated answer and added another option of equivalent code, if problem in != operator replacing it with equivalent code may help. please try second one with "not in" and pay attention that in this case you've to wrap XYZ in Square Brackets [ ]...
