Django Tutorial: Generic Views. Attribute Error
I'm at the last part of this tutorial.
from django.conf.urls import patterns, include, url from django.views.generic import DetailView, ListView from polls.models import Poll urlpatterns = patterns('', url(r'^$', ListView.as_view( queryset=Poll.objects.order_by('-pub_date')[:5], context_object_name='latest_poll_list', template_name='polls/index.html')), url(r'^(?P<pk>\d+)/$', DetailView.as_view( model=Poll, template_name='polls/detail.html')), url(r'^(?P<pk>\d+)/results/$', DetailView.as_view( model=Poll, template_name='polls/results.html'), name='poll_results'), url(r'^(?P<poll_id>\d+)/vote/$', 'polls.views.vote'), )
The ListView works, but when I visit a url with DetailView, I get.
AttributeError at /polls/2/ Generic detail view DetailView must be called with either an object pk or a slug. Request Method: GET Request URL: http://127.0.0.1:8000/polls/2/ Django Version: 1.4.1 Exception Type: AttributeError Exception Value: Generic detail view DetailView must be called with either an object pk or a slug. Exception Location: /home/yasith/coding/django/django-tutorial/lib/python2.7/site-packages/django/views/generic/detail.py in get_object, line 46 Python Executable: /home/yasith/coding/django/django-tutorial/bin/python2 Python Version: 2.7.3
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated.
EDIT: Add the main urls.py
from django.conf.urls import patterns, include, url from django.contrib import admin admin.autodiscover() urlpatterns = patterns('', url(r'^polls/', include('polls.urls')), url(r'^admin/', include(admin.site.urls)), )
I think the code you posted above, is not the one you have on your disk.
I had the same problem, but then I looked carefully at both, my code and the tutorial. The regex I had in my code was different from the tutorial.
This was my code:
This is the correct core:
Note that *poll_id* was in the previous sections of the tutorial, but generic views require pk. Also note that the tutorial is correct, and you posted the correct code (from the tutorial.)
Look Carefully in the Tutorials they have mentioned to change the urlpatterns to use primarykey instead of question_id.
