Topic: Select - search box - issue with saving while editing data

rimaster free asked 3 years ago

Hello I'm using MDB for my projects on Django. I am using in my forms Select field with a search box.
It working well when I try to add new record but problem is when I try to edit exist record. The forms look fine and I can see all the data in the fields. enter image description here

enter image description here

If I only try to change Department field... is OK and forms i saved. If I try to chanege other fields (without Department) I cant save it.

Field Department is required. There is a code of Department field:

<div class="form-row mb-3 md-form">
     <select name="depart" class="mdb-select md-form" id="id_depart" required  searchable="Search here..">
          <option value="{{ select.depart }}" selected>{{ select.depart }}</option>
          {% for result in depart %}
          <option value="{{ }}">{{ result.depart }}</option>
          {% endfor %}
     <label class="mdb-main-label">Department</label>

As you can see there is some data in this field but is problem with saved this form when Department is not changed. In logs looks like this field is empty.

<tr><th><label for="id_dzial">Dzial:</label></th><td><select name="dzial" required id="id_dzial">
  <option value="">---------</option>
  <option value="1">Production</option>
  <option value="2">IT</option>
  <option value="3" selected>Quality</option>

Why is the Department field empty despite the value? (---------)
Is there any way to save the field without changing its value?

Thank you for any suggestions.

Hi. Can you show how you get the select value? What selector do you use?

I'm sorry, my big bad. Now when you ask me about value I found my mistake... I have value="{{ select.depart }}" but should be value="{{ }}"

Thanks and please close this topic
