Code of

from django.http import JsonResponse
from .models import Name

def names_list(request):
  name = Name.objects.all()
  data = {"results": list(name.values("Name"))}
  return JsonResponse(data)

Django admin panel is showing the intended dropdown selection list.

Origin is basically a foreign key of Country model. In the Django admin panel, foreign key fields are displayed as dropdown lists.

If you want to add countries you might need to

  • Add Country model in Django admin site
  • Open Django admin, click on country model and populate data
  • Later this data will be available for reference in Name's model
  • Where you can add Name and select country.
