_columns = {

'field1': fields.selection([('1', 'A'), ('1', 'B')], 'my filed 1'),

'field2': fields.selection([('aa', 'C'), ('bb', 'D')], 'my filed 2'),


def onchange_field2(self, cr, uid, ids,field1,context=None):

    lst= [('5', '5'), ('6', '6'), ('7', '7'), ('8', '8')]


        lst.remove([item for item in lst if item[0] == '5'][0])

Yes you can not change using onchage of selection field value. It the collection of static value. you only used those value for selection which you had been define while creating selection field.

Thank you.

Sorry but selection fields doesn't allow you to change the values like you are doing, they are a kind of static collection of options/values to select just one. For doing something like that you need to change your field definition to a many2one and apply a domain to the field that restrict the results to the matching records and the domain could be build and returned from an onchange
