You can do this following:
You store the Quantity value from the database, when the user enter the Quantity value from textbox, if that is not possible, you can show a message according to that, what task have to do.

I think you want a tool tip type thing but which is better than default windows tool tip.

You need to build your own tool tip which will more beautiful and better than windows.
If you want such type i am making a tool tip for my application i ll send you that too after completion.
