Python Django Forms Model Forms Save a Model Form

HElp in making the view for saving.

This is my code so far.

from django.core.urlresolvers import reverse
from django.http import HttpResponseRedirect
from django.shortcuts import render

from . import forms

def product_form(request):
    form = forms.DigitalProductForm()
    return render(request, 'products/product_form.html', {'form': form})

    if request.method == 'POST':
        form = form(request.POST, instance=Digital)
        if form.is_valid():
            return HttpResponseRedirect(product.create.get_absolute_url())

Three items to fix.

  • move the original return statement to the end of the file. Otherwise, it will return immediately and never reach the POST code
  • inside post code, get the form using form = forms.DigitalProductForm(request.POST)
  • change the inner redirect to use reverse on "products:create"

Post back if you have more questions! Good luck!!

Thanks man.
