Hello Ajeng Shilvie ,

Here you go! Updated your method.

#your argument list was incorrect as 4th arugmnet you will get ids not dictionary you cannot use get method on list.

def on_change_address(self, cr, uid, ids, same, context=None):

   # a = vals.get("street")  Removed this line.

   #body of your code here you can get new address by browse your record using ids and reutrn that value from your dictionary with value key.

   if same :

          return : {

                      'value':{ 'my_new_street':'Your new address'}


#Note : when you use use onchange method you need to return your updated dictionary with latest data as value of value(key).  eg. {'value':{this dictionary will having the udpated information of your fields.}}.

Hope this will helps you.

in you on change method you should pass individual values of street, city, etc. This is not create or update method where you can get the vals. Pass the values individually. Here 'vals' is not a dictionary. Look into other examples of 'on_change' methods.
