Enhance User Message System

Reported by: ckarrie Owned by: nobody

I would like to see a enhanced user message system that allows to specify some base types of the message.

For example:

  • message_type = 'Error'
  • message_type = 'Success'
  • message_type = 'Notice'

That would be very practicable if you do an custom action and want to display as a user message, if it has failed or not.

An example for validating a Model using a Admin Action for further calculations could look like this:

# (fictional code)

def validate(modeladmin, request, queryset):
    for q in queryset.all():
        message = u"%s: %s" %(, q.validate())
        if q.is_valid:
            message_type = 'Success'
            message_type = 'Error'
        request.user.message_set.create(message=message, message_type=message_type)
validate.short_description = "Validate for Agl"

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

I'm tempted to close this as a d uplicate of #4606 where the addition of a type to the message is one of the proposed/asked for features of a new messaging system.

It's a more direct duplicate of #3995.

You're right, is a duplicate of 4604 and 3995, I'm sorry
