I am using django 1.0 and I have created my models using the example in the Django book. I am able to perform the basic function of adding data; now I need a way of retrieving that data, loading it into a form (change_form?! or something), EDIT it and save it back to the DB. Secondly how do I DELETE the data that's in the DB? i.e. search, select and then delete!
Please show me an example of the code I need to write on my
urls.py for perform this task.
Say you have a model Employee. To edit an entry with primary key emp_id you do:
emp = Employee.objects.get(pk = emp_id) emp.name = 'Somename' emp.save()
to delete it just do:
so a full view would be:
def update(request, id): emp = Employee.objects.get(pk = id) #you can do this for as many fields as you like #here I asume you had a form with input like <input type="text" name="name"/> #so it's basically like that for all form fields emp.name = request.POST.get('name') emp.save() return HttpResponse('updated') def delete(request, id): emp = Employee.objects.get(pk = id) emp.delete() return HttpResponse('deleted')
In urls.py you'd need two entries like this:
I suggest you take a look at the docs
