Django: Display Choice Value


Question

models.py:

class Person(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    CATEGORY_CHOICES = (
        ('M', 'Male'),
        ('F', 'Female'),
    )
    gender = models.CharField(max_length=200, choices=CATEGORY_CHOICES)
    to_be_listed = models.BooleanField(default=True)
    description = models.CharField(max_length=20000, blank=True)

views.py:

def index(request):
    latest_person_list2 = Person.objects.filter(to_be_listed=True)
    return object_list(request, template_name='polls/schol.html',
                       queryset=latest_person_list, paginate_by=5)

On the template, when I call person.gender, I get 'M' or 'F' instead of 'Male' or 'Female'.

How to display the value ('Male' or 'Female') instead of the code ('M'/'F')?

It looks like you were on the right track - get_FOO_display() is most certainly what you want:

In templates, you don't include () in the name of a method. Do the following:

{{ person.get_gender_display }}
