    what do you consider a warning message ? when does it need to be displayed ? If you wouldn't have already accepted an answer this would probably get closed as too unclear. Please avoid that for your next questions. Commented Apr 29, 2016 at 7:51

From trigger, you can not show the warning message. If you want to show the warning on the detail page of the record , just create a VF page and add it on the top of the detail page layout as inline page. Whenever your condition meets, that page will display the warning message See this image, i am showing message on the top of the screen

  • Could you please show some code? It will be very helpful. Commented Aug 10, 2017 at 17:10

You can do this by using the adderror function and trigger fired on after update for Example:-

trigger warning on Testwarning__c (before insert,after update) {

    for(Testwarning__c tw : trigger.new)
          tw.addError('please insert the field');

enter image description here

(you can also do this by validation rule for field specific error)
