Hello Vijay,

This will help you.

name = fields.Char(compute='_compute_name', store="True")
firstname = fields.Char()
lastname = fields.Char()

@api.depends('firstname', 'lastname')
def _compute_name(self):
    for record in self:
        record.name = record.firstname + record.lastname

Hello, I think you've three options.

- Overriding the create and write functions.

-Use onchange method in the firstname and lastname: but if you used onchange method to modify a readonly field this will not update the field in DB, so you need to make an invisible field, as workaround.

-Make the name field as a functional field.

how to make name as functional field any demo function?
