I don't understand what is going on quiz.course = course. Help please...

def quiz_create(request, course_pk):
    course = get_object_or_404(models.Course, pk=course_pk)
    form = forms.QuizForm()

    if request.method == 'POST':
        form = forms.QuizForm(request.POST)
        if form.is_valid():
            quiz = form.save(commit=False)
            quiz.course = course
            messages.add_message(request, messages.SUCCESS, "Quiz added!")
            return HttpResponseRedirect(quiz.get_absolute_url())
    return render(request, 'courses/quiz_form.html', {'form': form})

What is exactly going on with quiz.course = course? Thanks in advance!

Hi there, I presume quiz has a relation to course via a foreignkey in the model. The code

quiz.course = course

assigns that object to the Quiz model related field course
