Instance and data in QuizForm()

Can someone shed some light on what is going on here:

form = forms.QuizForm(instance=quiz, data=request.POST)

Thanks in advance!

Hi there instance=quiz is the instance of the Quiz model that you are passing to the form. Not seeing all the code is difficult to geta full understanding. However, I presume there is a line like

quiz = models.Quiz.objects.get(id=pk)
