Could you explain the use case in more detail?

  • If you want to pop up the alert on click of a button, you could use:

<button string="my_button" confirm="Are you sure?" />

         This will be in the XML file

  • If you want to raise it as an alert on programming logic, you could use:

raise osv.except_osv(('Permission Denied!'),('You are not allowed to perform this operation.')) 

         This will be in .py file

  • If you want it on click of some javascript event, then:

alert("Error !");

         This would be in your .js file.

Please describe the scenario you want to show this error.
