Newforms. HOWTO – Django. I've been using the newforms admin for a while now. I switched to the branch as I was hacking up a data entry app which a modified admin would have been perfect for. Since I envisioned having to create some new forms I thought I'd try and use newforms in the admin.
Newforms- admin seemed like the logical choice. As it turns out I didn't really need to create my own forms, and this is really because of the new outstanding powers of the branch.
Not sure what that means but that's the feeling I get). I hope these will be helpful to someone (the first few are pretty much identical to the existing docs, so skip down a bit if you're using the branch already). How can I get it answered? Q: How do I use the admin app? Q: How do I change the admin options? Q: How do I set up edit. How do I enforce it?
Startproject/app template documentation confusing. This lead me to believe I could add arbitrary options to the command and pass them in. You need to add the django CMS middlewares to your MIDDLEWARE. This will use your base template, and add extra content to it: From django.contrib.admin.templatetags.admin.
Q: I've tweaked something which generated a message for the user but I don't want them to see it. How can I get rid of it? Q: How do I add an extra column to the change list view? Q: I want to add some field specific template content in my change form. How, how? Q: How do I add new object tools to the top right of my change form?
Q: How do I get at the ID of my model in an inline row? Q: How do I get at the original model in a template? Q: Okay. Not sure if you'll be able to help, but do you know how to generate a DOCX or ODF file from in the admin?
Q: Where did prepopulate? My Slug. Field don't work! Q: What happened to filter.
How can I get it answered? Once you have your answer you can add an entry to the bottom of this FAQ. Again. fromdjango.
My. Model). at the bottom. Define your own class that inherits from admin. Model. Admin. First, set up the options for the models to be edited inline.
My. Other. Model. Inline(admin. Stacked.
Inline). model = Report. Template. XML. The minimum definition is the model attribute. You can also pass in the number of extra rows to display and which template to use. My. Other. Model. Inline(admin. Stacked. Inline). model = My. Other. Model. template ='my.

Note it is ONLY possible to sort by an already existing model field# and not on the actually values returned by the my. The fields are looped over in the following bit of code.
Not sure if you'll be able to help, but do you know how to generate a DOCX or ODF file from in the admin? As both of these file types are just zip files full of xml and binaries you can use the following models. Report. Template(models. Model). Other context stuff here .. These are assumed. You'll have to learn how to edit ODT and DOCX xml by yourself. My Slug. Field don't work!
Instead, there's a new prepopulated. This should be a dictionary mapping field names (as strings) to lists/tuples of field names that prepopulate them.
Q: What happened to filter? Then override clean().
You can then return the form field you like or a complete . Factoring this out left as an exercise for the reader. In the example below I've got a link on one. GET variable . However, this patch is not likely to be implemented, as it is not. At that point, you can reference the request object inside formfield.
The following example filters a Choice. Field based upon attributes of the the current Model instance.
The same thing may. Inline. Admin, retrieving the parent object instance, and using it to filter the Choice. Field on the Inline. Admin instances. class.
