Limiting related list

I have a lookup relationship between Object A and B, in object A I have a lookup field, while in Object B I have a related list.

 

I would like to be able to limit the number of Object A that reference Object B to 3, how can this be done?

 

Thanks

You can use the addError() method

You can create an Apex trigger that will prevent any new records from being added to Object B as long as there are 3 Object A records already listed.

Ok but how do I return an error message to the end-user?
