  • Inline input control id name not rendering, using autocomplete js
    Board » Django Standard Library » Admin
    Hello, I'm using to use inline-admin autocomplete.

    The problem occurs when I add another inline.... the id name of the input doesnt have the number of the row, it have --prefix--.instead.
    I'm using the id to capture events with javascript, so I need each one to have the id with the row number.

    Any idea why its doing that?

    I attached a capture with the id name of each inline the 2 added show the error

    the template of the widget is:
    <input type="text" id="lookup_{{ name }}" value="{{ label }}" style="display:none;" />
    <a href="{{ related_url }}{{ url }}" class="related-lookup" id="lookup_id_{{ name }}" onclick="return showRelatedObjectLookupPopup(this);">
    <img src="/static/admin/img/selector-search.gif" width="16" height="16" alt="{% trans "Lookup" %}" />

    So I think the {{name}} tag is not rendering..... as it seen on the picture attached.

    relevant code from the autocomplete package

    class BaseAutocompleteWidget(ForeignKeyRawIdWidget):
    widget_template = None
    search_path = '../foreignkey_autocomplete/'

    class Media:
    css = css_dict

    abstract = True

    obj =**{key: value})
    return truncate_words(obj, 14)

    class InlineForeignKeySearchWidget(BaseAutocompleteWidget):
    def __init__(self, rel, search_fields, attrs=None):
    self.search_fields = search_fields

    params = self.url_parameters()
    if params:
    url = '?' + '&amp;'.join(['%s=%s' % (k, v) for k, v in params.items()])
    url = ''
    if not attrs.has_key('class'):
    attrs['class'] = 'vForeignKeyRawIdHiddenAdminField'
    output = [forms.TextInput.render(self, name, value, attrs)]
    if value:
    label = self.label_for_value(value)
    label = u''
