Trying to use a queryset while using both methods 'values' and 'select_related' will throw an error when trying to use iter.


class Poll(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=50L)

class Entry(models.Model):
    poll = models.ForeignKey(Poll)
    name = models.CharField(max_length=50L)


>>> iter(Entry.objects.values('name').select_related('poll'))

Summary: Queryset with 'values' and 'select_related' won't workAdd a friendly error message when using Queryset.select_related() after values()

We could add a friendly error message for that case. There's no purpose to using select_related() after values() because values() already selects only the values it needs.

I'll take this one.

Will update the ticket once I send the PR.

In cbcf78fa:

Fixed #25252 -- Added friendly error message on incorrect .select_related() use

Using select_related() after .values() or .values_list() is not possible
because .values() or .values_list() already got the values they need.
