Django template rendering error when template have comparison 'equal'

I got problem about template rendering in django. It's show up when there is kind of integer comparison with '=='.

I have a view like ..


def mailtemplate_GetSchema(request, id=None):
  if id == None:
    svars = []
    this_var = {}
    this_var['s_id']=str(uuid4())
    this_var['varname'] = f"varname_{this_var['s_id']}"
    this_var['varlabel'] = f"varlabel_{this_var['s_id']}"
    this_var['vartype'] = f"vartype_{this_var['s_id']}"
    this_var['varformat'] = f"varformat_{this_var['_sid']}"
    this_var['varname_value'] = ''
    this_var['varlabel_value'] = ''
    this_var['vartype_value'] = 1
    this_var['varformat_value'] = ''
    svars.append(this_var)

    return render(request, 'mailtemplate_all.html', {'svars': svars})

  try :
    obj = MailTemplate.objects.get(pk=id)
    schema = obj.schema
    schema = json.loads(schema)
    # it's a list of dictionary
    vars = []
    for s in schema:
      this_var = {}
      this_var['field_id']=str(uuid4())
      this_var['varname'] = f"varname_{this_var['field_id']}"
      this_var['varlabel'] = f"varlabel_{this_var['field_id']}"
      this_var['vartype'] = f"vartype_{this_var['field_id']}"
      this_var['varformat'] = f"varformat_{this_var['field_id']}"
      this_var['varname_value'] = s.get('name','')
      this_var['varlabel_value'] = s.get('label','')
      this_var['vartype_value'] = s.get('type',1)
      this_var['varformat_value'] = s.get('format',None)
      if this_var['varformat_value'] == '':
        this_var['varformat_value']=False
      vars.append(this_var)

    print(f'VARS:{vars}')
    return render(request, 'mailtemplate_all.html', {'vars': vars})

  except MailTemplate.DoesNotExist:
    return HttpResponseNotFound()

the 'mailtemplate_all.html' is :


{% for v in vars%}
<div id={{ v.field_id }} class="divTableRow">
  <div class="divTableCell">
    <input type="text" name={{v.varname}} value={{ v.varname_value}} class="vTextField" maxlength="20" >
  </div>

  <div class="divTableCell">
    <input type="text" name={{v.varlabel}} value={{ v.varlabel_value}} class="vTextField" maxlength="20" >
  </div>

  <div class="divTableCell">
    <select name={{v.vartype}}>
      {% if v.vartype_value==1 %}
        <option value=1 selected>
      {% else %}
        <option value=1>
      {% endif %}
      Integer</option>

      {% if v.vartype_value==2 %}
        <option value=2 selected>
      {% else %}
        <option value=2>
      {% endif %}
      String</option>

      {% if v.vartype_value==3 %}
        <option value=3 selected>
      {% else %}
        <option value=3>
      {% endif %}
      Date</option>

    </select>
  </div>

  <div class="divTableCell">
    <input type="text" name={{v.varformat}} {% if v.varformat_value %}value={{v.varformat_value}}{% endif %}  class="vTextField" maxlength="20" >
  </div>
</div>
{% endfor %}

When the view called, I got error

So I take the 'vars' printed out from my views, and use it to test from python shell

got no error, and the output just like expected. It's show there is no problem in jinja2 about integer comparison.

Kindly please tell me whats wrong with my views.py.

Try this instead:

{% if v.vartype_value == 1 %}
    <option value=1 selected>
{% else %}
    <option value=1>
{% endif %}

Use it like v.vartype_value == 1, do proper spacing.

This worked for me,

{% if v.vartype_value == 1 %}

add spacess in between the condition
