I’m working with Python to create a Google App Engine application.To test my app, i am using html forms to enter data.
In my form i have a line:
<tr><td>Age</td><td><input type="number" size="10" name="age"/></td></tr>
and in my model class, a property defined like this:
class Person(ndb.Model): ... age = ndb.IntegerProperty()
when i test my app locally it displays the form but on entering a value for age, i get a
BadValueError: Expected integer, got u '23' message.Posting image because i do not know how to copy command prompt text.I hope it’s clear enough.
Edit: This is how the data is been passed from html form.
# Data taken from the registration form (above) is used to # create a new member. class PersonHandler(webapp2.RequestHandler): def post(self): # need to check this member-name does not exist name = self.request.get('name') callback = self.request.get('callback') member = Member.get_by_id(name) if member: # This member name already exists. self.error(409) # This is the HTTP status code for 'unable to process due to conflict' else: ... a = self.request.get("age") member = Member(age=a,...) member.put() if callback: self.response.write(callback + '(' + member.toJSON + ')') else: self.response.write(member.toJSON())
Can someone tell me what am doing wrong?
You simply need to convert the retrieved value to an integer:
... else: ... a = int(self.request.get("age"))
