Eg: having two fields 'age' a char field and 'enter_age' a check box.when ever i checked the check box then nly i can to enter the age.If entering the age then it will check for age>18 , otherwise it willnot check..Have written validation code for 'age'(age>18) and given the constraints too.

.Now my problem is whenever i chekked 'enter_age' then it will check for the constarints and gives a positive result...But whenever i didnt check the 'enter_age' then also they are checking for the constraints.....But i dont want to happen this..

how to disable the contraints for the second condition only???

plz give some answers..

Hello Deepak,

In your constraints, you should check age range only if your boolean field (checkbox) is true (checked).


#constraint method
def check_age(cr, uid, ids, context=None):
for rec in self.browse(cr, uid, ids, context=context):
if rec.check_age: #your checkbox. Check age only if checkbox is checked
if rec.age < 18: #raise constraint if age is less than 18
return False
return True

Hope this will help you.
