A Django Plugin for Creating AJAX Driven Forms in Bootstrap Modal

Django Bootstrap Modal Forms

A Django plugin for creating AJAX driven forms in Bootstrap modal.

Test and experiment on your machine

This repository includes Dockerfile and docker-compose.yml files so you can easily setup and start to experiment with django-bootstrap-modal-forms running inside of a container on your local machine. Any changes you make in bootstrap_modal_forms, examples and test folders are reflected in the container (see docker-compose.yml) and the data stored in sqlite3 database are persistent even if you remove stopped container. Follow the steps below to run the app:

$ clone repository
$ cd django-bootstrap-modal-forms
$ docker compose up (use -d flag to run app in detached mode in the background)
$ visit 0.0.0.0:8000

Installation

Install django-bootstrap-modal-forms:

$ pip install django-bootstrap-modal-forms

Add bootstrap_modal_forms to your INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'bootstrap_modal_forms',
    ...
]

Include Bootstrap, jQuery and jquery.bootstrap.modal.forms.js on every page where you would like to set up the AJAX driven Django forms in Bootstrap modal.

IMPORTANT: Adjust Bootstrap and jQuery file paths to match yours, but include jquery.bootstrap.modal.forms.js exactly as in code bellow.

<head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="{% static 'assets/css/bootstrap.css' %}">
</head>

<body>
    <script src="{% static 'assets/js/bootstrap.js' %}"></script>
    <script src="{% static 'assets/js/jquery.js' %}"></script>
    <script src="{% static 'js/jquery.bootstrap.modal.forms.js' %}"></script>
    <!-- You can alternatively load the minified version -->
    <script src="{% static 'js/jquery.bootstrap.modal.forms.min.js' %}"></script>
</body>

How it works?

index.html

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {

    $("#create-book").modalForm({
        formURL: "{% url 'create_book' %}"
    });

});
</script>
  1. Click event on html element instantiated with modalForm opens modal
  2. Form at formURL is appended to the modal
  3. On submit the form is POSTed via AJAX request to formURL
  4. Unsuccessful POST request returns errors, which are shown in modal
  5. Successful POST request submits the form and redirects to success_url and shows success_message, which are both defined in related Django view

Usage

1. Form

Define BookModelForm and inherit built-in form BSModalModelForm.

forms.py

from .models import Book
from bootstrap_modal_forms.forms import BSModalModelForm

class BookModelForm(BSModalModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = Book
        fields = ['title', 'author', 'price']

2. Form's html

Define form's html and save it as Django template.

  • Bootstrap 4 modal elements are used in this example.
  • Form will POST to formURL defined in #6.
  • Add class="invalid" or custom errorClass (see paragraph Options) to the elements that wrap the fields.
  • class="invalid" acts as a flag for the fields having errors after the form has been POSTed.
book/create_book.html

<form method="post" action="">
  {% csrf_token %}

 <div class="modal-header">
    <h5 class="modal-title">Create new Book</h5>
    <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-label="Close">
      <span aria-hidden="true">&times;</span>
    </button>
  </div>

  <div class="modal-body">
    {% for field in form %}
      <div class="form-group{% if field.errors %} invalid{% endif %}">
        <label for="{{ field.id_for_label }}">{{ field.label }}</label>
        {{ field }}
        {% for error in field.errors %}
          <p class="help-block">{{ error }}</p>
        {% endfor %}
      </div>
    {% endfor %}
  </div>

  <div class="modal-footer">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-default" data-dismiss="modal">Close</button>
    <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">Create</button>
  </div>

</form>

3. Class-based view

Define a class-based view BookCreateView and inherit from built-in generic view BSModalCreateView. BookCreateView processes the form defined in #1, uses the template defined in #2 and redirects to success_url showing success_message.

views.py

from django.urls import reverse_lazy
from .forms import BookModelForm
from .models import Book
from bootstrap_modal_forms.generic import BSModalCreateView

class BookCreateView(BSModalCreateView):
    template_name = 'examples/create_book.html'
    form_class = BookModelForm
    success_message = 'Success: Book was created.'
    success_url = reverse_lazy('index')

4. URL for the view

Define URL for the view in #3.

from django.urls import path
from books import views

urlpatterns = [
    path('', views.Index.as_view(), name='index'),
    path('create/', views.BookCreateView.as_view(), name='create_book'),
]

5. Bootstrap modal and trigger element

Define the Bootstrap modal window and html element triggering modal opening.

  • Single modal can be used for multiple modalForms in single template (see #6).
  • When using multiple modals on the same page each modal should have unique id and the same value should also be set as modalID option when instantiating modalForm on trigger element.
  • Trigger element (in this example button with id="create-book") is used for instantiation of modalForm in #6.
  • Any element can be trigger element as long as modalForm is bound to it.
  • Click event on trigger element loads form's html from #2 within <div class="modal-content"></div> and sets action attribute of the form to formURL set in #6.
index.html

<div class="modal fade" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" id="modal">
  <div class="modal-dialog" role="document">
    <div class="modal-content"></div>
  </div>
</div>

<!-- Create book button -->
<button id="create-book" class="btn btn-primary" type="button" name="button">Create book</button>

6. modalForm

Add script to the template from #5 and bind the modalForm to the trigger element. Set BookCreateView URL defined in #4 as formURL property of modalForm.

  • If you want to create more modalForms in single template using the single modal window from #5, repeat steps #1 to #4, create new trigger element as in #5 and bind the new modalForm with unique URL to it.
  • Default values for modalID, modalContent, modalForm and errorClass are used in this example, while formURL is customized. If you customize any other option adjust the code of the above examples accordingly.
index.html

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {

    $("#create-book").modalForm({
        formURL: "{% url 'create_book' %}"
    });

});
</script>

Async create/update with or without modal closing on submit

Set asyncUpdate and asyncSettings settings to create or update objects without page redirection to successUrl and define whether a modal should close or stay opened after form submission. See comments in example below and paragraph modalForm options for explanation of asyncSettings. See examples on how to properly reinstantiate modal forms for all CRUD buttons when using async options.
index.html

<!-- asyncSettings.dataElementId -->
<table id="books-table" class="table">
  <thead>
    ...
  </thead>
  <tbody>
  {% for book in books %}
    <tr>
        ...
        <!-- Update book buttons -->
        <button type="button" class="update-book btn btn-sm btn-primary" data-form-url="{% url 'update_book' book.pk %}">
          <span class="fa fa-pencil"></span>
        </button>
        ...
      </td>
    </tr>
  {% endfor %}
  </tbody>
</table>

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(function () {
        ...

        # asyncSettings.successMessage
        var asyncSuccessMessage = [
          "<div ",
          "style='position:fixed;top:0;z-index:10000;width:100%;border-radius:0;' ",
          "class='alert alert-icon alert-success alert-dismissible fade show mb-0' role='alert'>",
          "Success: Book was updated.",
          "<button type='button' class='close' data-dismiss='alert' aria-label='Close'>",
          "<span aria-hidden='true'>&times;</span>",
          "</button>",
          "</div>",
          "<script>",
          "$('.alert').fadeTo(2000, 500).slideUp(500, function () {$('.alert').slideUp(500).remove();});",
          "<\/script>"
        ].join();

        # asyncSettings.addModalFormFunction
        function updateBookModalForm() {
          $(".update-book").each(function () {
            $(this).modalForm({
              formURL: $(this).data("form-url"),
              asyncUpdate: true,
              asyncSettings: {
                closeOnSubmit: false,

                addModalFormFunction: updateBookModalForm
              }
            });

Example 2: Login form in Bootstrap modal

For explanation how all the parts of the code work together see paragraph Usage. To test the working solution presented here clone and run Examples.

You can set the login redirection by setting the LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL in settings.py.

You can also set the custom login redirection by:

  1. Adding success_url to the extra_context of CustomLoginView
  2. Setting this success_url variable as a value of the hidden input field with name="next" within the Login form html

  • See the difference between button triggering Create action and buttons triggering Read, Update and Delete actions.
  • Within the for loop in .html file the data-form-url attribute of each Update, Read and Delete button should be set to relevant URL with pk argument of the object to be updated, read or deleted.
  • These data-form-url URLs should than be set as formURLs for modalForms bound to the buttons.

Creating posts

PyTumblr lets you create all of the various types that Tumblr supports. When using these types there are a few defaults that are able to be used with any post type.

The default supported types are described below.

  • state - a string, the state of the post. Supported types are published, draft, queue, private
  • tags - a list, a list of strings that you want tagged on the post. eg: ["testing", "magic", "1"]

  • date - a string, the customized GMT that you want
  • format - a string, the format that your post is in. Support types are html or markdown
  • slug - a string, the slug for the url of the post you want

We'll show examples throughout of these default examples while showcasing all the specific post types.

Creating a photo post

Creating a photo post supports a bunch of different options plus the described default options * caption - a string, the user supplied caption * link - a string, the "click-through" url for the photo * source - a string, the url for the photo you want to use (use this or the data parameter) * data - a list or string, a list of filepaths or a single file path for multipart file upload

#Creates a photo post using a source URL
client.create_photo(blogName, state="published", tags=["testing", "ok"],
                    source="https://68.media.tumblr.com/b965fbb2e501610a29d80ffb6fb3e1ad/tumblr_n55vdeTse11rn1906o1_500.jpg")

#Creates a photo post using a local filepath
client.create_photo(blogName, state="queue", tags=["testing", "ok"],
                    tweet="Woah this is an incredible sweet post [URL]",
                    data="/Users/johnb/path/to/my/image.jpg")

#Creates a photoset post using several local filepaths
client.create_photo(blogName, state="draft", tags=["jb is cool"], format="markdown",
                    data=["/Users/johnb/path/to/my/image.jpg", "/Users/johnb/Pictures/kittens.jpg"],
                    caption="## Mega sweet kittens")

Creating a text post

Creating a text post supports the same options as default and just a two other parameters * title - a string, the optional title for the post. Supports markdown or html * body - a string, the body of the of the post. Supports markdown or html

#Creating a text post
client.create_text(blogName, state="published", slug="testing-text-posts", title="Testing", body="testing1 2 3 4")

  • title - a string, the title of post that you want. Supports HTML entities.
  • url - a string, the url that you want to create a link post for.
  • description - a string, the desciption of the link that you have

client.create_link(blogName, title="I like to search things, you should too.", url="https://duckduckgo.com",
                   description="Search is pretty cool when a duck does it.")

Creating a chat post

Creating a chat post supports the same options as default and two other parameters * title - a string, the title of the chat post * conversation - a string, the text of the conversation/chat, with diablog labels (no html)

#Create a chat post
chat = """John: Testing can be fun!
Renee: Testing is tedious and so are you.
John: Aw.
"""
client.create_chat(blogName, title="Renee just doesn't understand.", conversation=chat, tags=["renee", "testing"])

Creating an audio post

Creating an audio post allows for all default options and a has 3 other parameters. The only thing to keep in mind while dealing with audio posts is to make sure that you use the external_url parameter or data. You cannot use both at the same time. * caption - a string, the caption for your post * external_url - a string, the url of the site that hosts the audio file * data - a string, the filepath of the audio file you want to upload to Tumblr

#Creating an audio file
client.create_audio(blogName, caption="Rock out.", data="/Users/johnb/Music/my/new/sweet/album.mp3")

#lets use soundcloud!
client.create_audio(blogName, caption="Mega rock out.", external_url="https://soundcloud.com/skrillex/sets/recess")

Creating a video post

Creating a video post allows for all default options and has three other options. Like the other post types, it has some restrictions. You cannot use the embed and data parameters at the same time. * caption - a string, the caption for your post * embed - a string, the HTML embed code for the video * data - a string, the path of the file you want to upload

#Creating an upload from YouTube
client.create_video(blogName, caption="Jon Snow. Mega ridiculous sword.",
                    embed="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40pUYLacrj4")

#Creating a video post from local file
client.create_video(blogName, caption="testing", data="/Users/johnb/testing/ok/blah.mov")

Editing a post

Updating a post requires you knowing what type a post you're updating. You'll be able to supply to the post any of the options given above for updates.

client.edit_post(blogName, id=post_id, type="text", title="Updated")
client.edit_post(blogName, id=post_id, type="photo", data="/Users/johnb/mega/awesome.jpg")

Reblogging a Post

Reblogging a post just requires knowing the post id and the reblog key, which is supplied in the JSON of any post object.

client.reblog(blogName, id=125356, reblog_key="reblog_key")

Deleting a post

Deleting just requires that you own the post and have the post id

client.delete_post(blogName, 123456) # Deletes your post :(

A note on tags: When passing tags, as params, please pass them as a list (not a comma-separated string):

client.create_text(blogName, tags=['hello', 'world'], ...)

Getting notes for a post

In order to get the notes for a post, you need to have the post id and the blog that it is on.

data = client.notes(blogName, id='123456')

The results include a timestamp you can use to make future calls.

data = client.notes(blogName, id='123456', before_timestamp=data["_links"]["next"]["query_params"]["before_timestamp"])

Tagged Methods

# get posts with a given tag
client.tagged(tag, **params)

Using the interactive console

This client comes with a nice interactive console to run you through the OAuth process, grab your tokens (and store them for future use).

You'll need pyyaml installed to run it, but then it's just:

$ python interactive-console.py

and away you go! Tokens are stored in ~/.tumblr and are also shared by other Tumblr API clients like the Ruby client.

Running tests

The tests (and coverage reports) are run with nose, like this:

python setup.py test

jQuery Ajax CRUD in ASP.NET Core MVC with Modal Popup

In this article, we’ll discuss how to use jQuery Ajax for ASP.NET Core MVC CRUD Operations using Bootstrap Modal. With jQuery Ajax, we can make HTTP request to controller action methods without reloading the entire page, like a single page application.

To demonstrate CRUD operations – insert, update, delete and retrieve, the project will be dealing with details of a normal bank transaction. GitHub repository for this demo project : https://bit.ly/33KTJAu.

Sub-topics discussed :

  • Form design for insert and update operation.
  • Display forms in modal popup dialog.
  • Form post using jQuery Ajax.
  • Implement MVC CRUD operations with jQuery Ajax.
  • Loading spinner in .NET Core MVC.
  • Prevent direct access to MVC action method.

Create ASP.NET Core MVC Project

In Visual Studio 2019, Go to File > New > Project (Ctrl + Shift + N).

From new project window, Select Asp.Net Core Web Application_._

Image showing how to create ASP.NET Core Web API project in Visual Studio.

Once you provide the project name and location. Select Web Application(Model-View-Controller) and uncheck HTTPS Configuration. Above steps will create a brand new ASP.NET Core MVC project.

Showing project template selection for .NET Core MVC.

Setup a Database

Let’s create a database for this application using Entity Framework Core. For that we’ve to install corresponding NuGet Packages. Right click on project from solution explorer, select Manage NuGet Packages_,_ From browse tab, install following 3 packages.

Showing list of NuGet Packages for Entity Framework Core

Now let’s define DB model class file – /Models/TransactionModel.cs.

public class TransactionModel
{
    [Key]
    public int TransactionId { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(12)")]
    [DisplayName("Account Number")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage ="This Field is required.")]
    [MaxLength(12,ErrorMessage ="Maximum 12 characters only")]
    public string AccountNumber { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(100)")]
    [DisplayName("Beneficiary Name")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    public string BeneficiaryName { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(100)")]
    [DisplayName("Bank Name")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    public string BankName { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(11)")]
    [DisplayName("SWIFT Code")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    [MaxLength(11)]
    public string SWIFTCode { get; set; }

    [DisplayName("Amount")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    public int Amount { get; set; }

    [DisplayFormat(DataFormatString = "{0:MM/dd/yyyy}")]
    public DateTime Date { get; set; }
}

C#Copy

Here we’ve defined model properties for the transaction with proper validation. Now let’s define  DbContextclass for EF Core.

#asp.net core article #asp.net core #add loading spinner in asp.net core #asp.net core crud without reloading #asp.net core jquery ajax form #asp.net core modal dialog #asp.net core mvc crud using jquery ajax #asp.net core mvc with jquery and ajax #asp.net core popup window #bootstrap modal popup in asp.net core mvc. bootstrap modal popup in asp.net core #delete and viewall in asp.net core #jquery ajax - insert #jquery ajax form post #modal popup dialog in asp.net core #no direct access action method #update #validation in modal popup

A Django Plugin for Creating AJAX Driven Forms in Bootstrap Modal

Django Bootstrap Modal Forms

A Django plugin for creating AJAX driven forms in Bootstrap modal.

Test and experiment on your machine

This repository includes Dockerfile and docker-compose.yml files so you can easily setup and start to experiment with django-bootstrap-modal-forms running inside of a container on your local machine. Any changes you make in bootstrap_modal_forms, examples and test folders are reflected in the container (see docker-compose.yml) and the data stored in sqlite3 database are persistent even if you remove stopped container. Follow the steps below to run the app:

$ clone repository
$ cd django-bootstrap-modal-forms
$ docker compose up (use -d flag to run app in detached mode in the background)
$ visit 0.0.0.0:8000

Installation

Install django-bootstrap-modal-forms:

$ pip install django-bootstrap-modal-forms

Add bootstrap_modal_forms to your INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'bootstrap_modal_forms',
    ...
]

Include Bootstrap, jQuery and jquery.bootstrap.modal.forms.js on every page where you would like to set up the AJAX driven Django forms in Bootstrap modal.

IMPORTANT: Adjust Bootstrap and jQuery file paths to match yours, but include jquery.bootstrap.modal.forms.js exactly as in code bellow.

<head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="{% static 'assets/css/bootstrap.css' %}">
</head>

<body>
    <script src="{% static 'assets/js/bootstrap.js' %}"></script>
    <script src="{% static 'assets/js/jquery.js' %}"></script>
    <script src="{% static 'js/jquery.bootstrap.modal.forms.js' %}"></script>
    <!-- You can alternatively load the minified version -->
    <script src="{% static 'js/jquery.bootstrap.modal.forms.min.js' %}"></script>
</body>

How it works?

index.html

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {

    $("#create-book").modalForm({
        formURL: "{% url 'create_book' %}"
    });

});
</script>
  1. Click event on html element instantiated with modalForm opens modal
  2. Form at formURL is appended to the modal
  3. On submit the form is POSTed via AJAX request to formURL
  4. Unsuccessful POST request returns errors, which are shown in modal
  5. Successful POST request submits the form and redirects to success_url and shows success_message, which are both defined in related Django view

Usage

1. Form

Define BookModelForm and inherit built-in form BSModalModelForm.

forms.py

from .models import Book
from bootstrap_modal_forms.forms import BSModalModelForm

class BookModelForm(BSModalModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = Book
        fields = ['title', 'author', 'price']

2. Form's html

Define form's html and save it as Django template.

  • Bootstrap 4 modal elements are used in this example.
  • Form will POST to formURL defined in #6.
  • Add class="invalid" or custom errorClass (see paragraph Options) to the elements that wrap the fields.
  • class="invalid" acts as a flag for the fields having errors after the form has been POSTed.
book/create_book.html

<form method="post" action="">
  {% csrf_token %}

 <div class="modal-header">
    <h5 class="modal-title">Create new Book</h5>
    <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal" aria-label="Close">
      <span aria-hidden="true">&times;</span>
    </button>
  </div>

  <div class="modal-body">
    {% for field in form %}
      <div class="form-group{% if field.errors %} invalid{% endif %}">
        <label for="{{ field.id_for_label }}">{{ field.label }}</label>
        {{ field }}
        {% for error in field.errors %}
          <p class="help-block">{{ error }}</p>
        {% endfor %}
      </div>
    {% endfor %}
  </div>

  <div class="modal-footer">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-default" data-dismiss="modal">Close</button>
    <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">Create</button>
  </div>

</form>

3. Class-based view

Define a class-based view BookCreateView and inherit from built-in generic view BSModalCreateView. BookCreateView processes the form defined in #1, uses the template defined in #2 and redirects to success_url showing success_message.

views.py

from django.urls import reverse_lazy
from .forms import BookModelForm
from .models import Book
from bootstrap_modal_forms.generic import BSModalCreateView

class BookCreateView(BSModalCreateView):
    template_name = 'examples/create_book.html'
    form_class = BookModelForm
    success_message = 'Success: Book was created.'
    success_url = reverse_lazy('index')

4. URL for the view

Define URL for the view in #3.

from django.urls import path
from books import views

urlpatterns = [
    path('', views.Index.as_view(), name='index'),
    path('create/', views.BookCreateView.as_view(), name='create_book'),
]

5. Bootstrap modal and trigger element

Define the Bootstrap modal window and html element triggering modal opening.

  • Single modal can be used for multiple modalForms in single template (see #6).
  • When using multiple modals on the same page each modal should have unique id and the same value should also be set as modalID option when instantiating modalForm on trigger element.
  • Trigger element (in this example button with id="create-book") is used for instantiation of modalForm in #6.
  • Any element can be trigger element as long as modalForm is bound to it.
  • Click event on trigger element loads form's html from #2 within <div class="modal-content"></div> and sets action attribute of the form to formURL set in #6.
index.html

<div class="modal fade" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" id="modal">
  <div class="modal-dialog" role="document">
    <div class="modal-content"></div>
  </div>
</div>

<!-- Create book button -->
<button id="create-book" class="btn btn-primary" type="button" name="button">Create book</button>

6. modalForm

Add script to the template from #5 and bind the modalForm to the trigger element. Set BookCreateView URL defined in #4 as formURL property of modalForm.

  • If you want to create more modalForms in single template using the single modal window from #5, repeat steps #1 to #4, create new trigger element as in #5 and bind the new modalForm with unique URL to it.
  • Default values for modalID, modalContent, modalForm and errorClass are used in this example, while formURL is customized. If you customize any other option adjust the code of the above examples accordingly.
index.html

Async create/update with or without modal closing on submit

Set asyncUpdate and asyncSettings settings to create or update objects without page redirection to successUrl and define whether a modal should close or stay opened after form submission. See comments in example below and paragraph modalForm options for explanation of asyncSettings. See examples on how to properly reinstantiate modal forms for all CRUD buttons when using async options.

Example 2: Login form in Bootstrap modal

For explanation how all the parts of the code work together see paragraph Usage. To test the working solution presented here clone and run Examples.

You can set the login redirection by setting the LOGIN_REDIRECT_URL in settings.py.

You can also set the custom login redirection by:

  1. Adding success_url to the extra_context of CustomLoginView
  2. Setting this success_url variable as a value of the hidden input field with name="next" within the Login form html

  • See the difference between button triggering Create action and buttons triggering Read, Update and Delete actions.
  • Within the for loop in .html file the data-form-url attribute of each Update, Read and Delete button should be set to relevant URL with pk argument of the object to be updated, read or deleted.
  • These data-form-url URLs should than be set as formURLs for modalForms bound to the buttons.
