You can find it in addons/project/project_view.xml, then please look on

<field name="planned_hours" widget="float_time"   groups="project.group_time_work_estimation_tasks"      on_change="onchange_planned(planned_hours)"/>

and to make this field readonly give readonly="1"

You told that the field is not visible in the edit form view, and it is visible in form as well as in form view get. So you please refresh the page and check whether it is still showing in form view get and in the form

thank you for your post - as it shed some light, let me highlight details. there is no such .xml in path you've mentioned (maybe you refer to other odoo than 10)?, but I've found:

- file ./addons/project/views/project_views.xml

- file as above has line:


<field name="project_id" domain="[('active', '=', True)]" context="{'default_use_tasks':1}"/>

<field name="user_id"


options='{"no_open": True}'/>

<field name="legend_blocked" invisible="1"/>

<field name="legend_normal" invisible="1"/>

<field name="legend_done" invisible="1"/>


- unfortunately still no line seen in 'fields view get' (line: <field name="planned_hours" widget="float_time" on_change="1" modifiers="{}"/>)

- finally I've run search over filesystem for files with text "field name="planned_hours" widget="float_time" on_change="1"" inside - and.. it gave no result :(

so still, could anyone advice where from comes line " <field name="planned_hours" widget="float_time" on_change="1" modifiers="{}"/> " visible in 'fields view get'?

Tomasz Serwanzki,

by applying below code,the planned hours field will become readonly

<record id="project_task_form2_inherited" model="ir.ui.view">
<field name="name">project.task.form2.inherited</field>
<field name="model">project.task</field>
<field name="inherit_id" ref="hr_timesheet.view_task_form2_inherited" />
<field eval="2" name="priority"/>
<field name="arch" type="xml">
<field name="planned_hours" position="attributes">
<attribute name="readonly">1</attribute>

..and.. finally got it :) there is a need to take a look at 'inherited views' - seems this field is edited there. I was able to make it read only and it works :)

now it is second step - I woul dlike to have this field to be:

- read only for users, but

- readwrite for project manager

could anyone advice how to manage access rights to particular field?
