#20664 closed Bug (fixed)

[py3] raw_id_fields popup does not return a pk

Reported by: jefftriplett Owned by: timo
Component: contrib.admin Version: 1.5
Severity: Normal Keywords: raw_id_fields, admin
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


The raw_id_fields popup appears to be broken in Django 1.5 (using Python 3). The popup lets you select a record but instead of returning the pk (to fill out the admin form), the popup window instead now goes to the change view and does not return back to the window that opened it. Same behavior in Chrome and Safari.

  • Has patch set

repr() on Python 2 includes a leading u on unicode strings which isn't there on Python 3. I think the repr() call to add apostrophes around the pk in the attached patch can safely be replaced by HTML entities. This was originally added in [f2a45f9b].

Eventually, since the admin has the HTML5 doctype, you could replace the ' HTML entity by the more readable '.

What about using escapejs instead of force_text?
