'; Create empty queryset by default in django form fields - LavOzs.Com

I have this fields in form:

city = forms.ModelChoiceField(label="city", queryset=MyCity.objects.all())
district = forms.ModelChoiceField(label="district", queryset=MyDistrict.objects.all())
area = forms.ModelChoiceField(label="area", queryset=MyArea.objects.all())

district comes from click on city and area comes from click on area. With queryset=MyDistrict.objects.all() and queryset=MyArea.objects.all() form will be very heavy. How can I make querysets empty by default?

You can have an empty queryset by doing this:


Although i don't know how are you going to use that form, you can put that as your field's queryset in order to get what you need...

@radtek's comment should be an answer as it is useful in similar scenarios but with different approach than the accepted answer.

If your queryset changes with the url in your view.

I am extending the answer with example as I used:

def my_view(request):
    form = YourForm(initial={'field1':value1, 'field2':value2})
    form.fields['field3'].queryset = YourModel.objects.filter('foo'=bar)
