Neither setting

success_message = "Something!"


def get_success_message(self, cleaned_data):
     return "Something"*10

works. I can confirm that the SuccessMessageMixin works fine for UpdateView and CreateView. Here's a quit sample project:

SuccessMessageMixin hooks to form_valid which is not present on DeleteView to push its message to the user.

I remember seeing another ticket or discussion about the unification of DeleteView with CreateView and UpdateView. If someone else manage to find such a ticket I think it should supersede this one since the SuccessMessageMixin issue described here is really just a side effect of the deviation of DeleteView.

I guessed as much. FWIW my (temporary) solution was to just set a success message in def delete(self, request, *args, **kwargs)

Thanks for the quick reply/update. At least now I know I'm not missing something :)
