I am new to django and on my course to learn django, i am facing a issue.
MY CURRENT GOAL:
Take input from homepage(say localhost:8000/) in my app and display result to other webpage say (localhost:8000/result/)
WHAT I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACHIEVE:
I was able to get input from homepage.html(localhost:8000/) using request.POST.get(‘widgetName’) in views.py under the function which is rendering homepage.html. I want to pass the data to another function in same views.py which renders resultpage.html(localhost:8000/result/)
here is how my views.py file looks
from django.shortcuts import render # Create your views here. def resultPageFunction(request): return render(request, "resultPageTemplate/reultPage.html") def mainPageFunction(request): if (str(request.method).lower() == "post"): query = request.POST.get('searchArea') print(query) return render(request, "mainPageTemplate/homePage.html")
I am able to capture my input in query variable.
Currently i am working with raw HTML and not using django forms.
Thanks in advance.
Hard to help without seeing your views.py etc.
