Providing initial values to formset in django admin inline for a custom form
I have a model "Timings" that goes like this. weekday = models.CharField(choices=constants.WEEKDAYS, max_length=10) start_time = models.TimeField() end_time = models.TimeField() lab = models.ForeignKey('Lab') I had to override the form in django admin and display it as inline in Lab form. I created a form for Timings model and excluded all model fields and introduced some form fields. day = forms.CharField(label="Day", required=False) start_session1 = forms.TimeField(label="Session-1 Start", required=False) end_session1 = forms.TimeField(label="Session-1 End", required=False) start_session2 = forms.TimeField(label="Session-2 Start", required=False) end_session2 = forms.TimeField(label="Session-2 End", required=False) My purpose here is to display a table like structure to user in inline. & rows for the 7 days in the week with storing upto 2 sessions per day. I have overridden the form's save method. Now my instances are getting saved in the DB but in edit mode, I need to display the already present instances in the DB according to the same structure of the form. I ran over the concept of formsets but could not figure out how to override the initial values dynamically. Can somebody help? Stuck at this problem for a week.
