Javascript Question

Django Ajax returns whole html page

I'm trying to create live search filter,with ajax

$(function() {

$('#search-item').keyup(function() {

$.ajax({
type: "GET",
url: "/toysprices/",
data: {
'query' : $('#search-toy').val(),
'csrfmiddlewaretoken' : $("input[name=csrfmiddlewaretoken]").val()
},
success: searchSuccess,
dataType: 'html'
});
});
});

function searchSuccess(data, textStatus, jqXHR)
{
console.log(data);
}


and my views.py

f request.method == "GET":
search_text = request.GET['query']
if search_text:
search_text = request.GET['query']
statuss = Status.objects.filter(status__contains = search_text)
else:
statuss = Status.objects.all()

return render(request, 'ajax_search.html', {'statuss':statuss})


it works correctly, but it returns whole html page, how can i make to get only part which I want to render in my template.

Answer

Returning the result with JSON will solve your problem.

For Example,

# Django view

def search(request):
    if request.method == "GET":
        return_array = []
        search_text = request.GET.get('query') # Always put request.GET.get('param') instead of request.GET['param']
        if search_text:
            search_text = request.GET.get('query')
            statuss = Status.objects.filter(status__icontains = search_text)
        else:
            statuss = Status.objects.all()

        for i in statuss:
            return_sub_array = {}
            return_sub_array['status_name'] = i.status_name
            return_array.append(return_sub_array)
        return HttpResponse(json.dumps(return_array))

# Jquery function

$('#search-item').keyup(function() {

    $.ajax({
        type: "GET",
        url: "/toysprices/",
        dataType: 'JSON',
        data: {
            'query' : $('#search-toy').val(),
            'csrfmiddlewaretoken' : $("input[name=csrfmiddlewaretoken]").val()
        },
        success: function(data){
                   if(data.length > 0 )
                    {   
                            console.log(data);
                            for (var i = 0; i < data.length ; i++) {
                                var obj = data[i]['status_name'];
                                console.log(obj)
                                // further logic goes here
                            }
                    }
                    else {
                        console.log("No result found");
                    }
                 },
         error:function(data){
                 console.log('error')
                 console.log(data)
          }
    });
});
