Hi! You need to add on_change attribute in your field (xml file)

<field name="price" on_change="price_changed()"/>

and define function in your model:

def price_changed(self,cr,uid,ids,context=None):
    #you can do something here
    return {'value':{},'warning':{'title':'warning','message':'Your message'}}

Thanks Alexander, I tried your example and it didn't work

You can read about on_change event. https://doc.openerp.com/trunk/server/03_module_dev_03/#on-change

Perhaps, in your case, you need to do anything else.

hi yes

in in on change of product you can add the warning message

 def onchange_product(self,cr,uid,ids,context=None):
   #you can do something here
   return {'value':{},'warning':{'title':'warning','message':'Your message'}}

or you can exception message also

  raise osv.except_osv(_('warning'), _(' Your message'))
