I have a model in Flask-Admin with filter (e.g. based on Foreign Key to other model).
I want to generate links from front-end to this model view in admin with filter value applied. I noticed that it adds
http:/.../admin/model_view_<my model>/?flt0_0=<filter value>
Unfortunately, there's no public API for this yet. Here's a short snippet you can use for now to generate fltX_Y query string:
class MyView(BaseModelView): ... def get_filter_arg(self, filter_name, filter_op='equals'): filters = self._filter_groups[filter_name].filters position = self._filter_groups.keys().index(filter_name) for f in filters: if f['operation'] == filter_op: return 'flt%d_%d' % (position, f['index'])
Then you can call this method on a your view instance:
print my_view.get_filter_arg('Name', 'contains')
