Django forms are an advanced set of HTML forms that can be created using python and support all features of HTML forms in a pythonic way.

In this article, Form is rendered as table in the template.

{{ form.as_table }} – Render Django Forms as Table

Illustration of {{ form.as_table }} using an Example. Consider a project named geeksforgeeks having an app named geeks.

Refer to the following articles to check how to create a project and an app in Django.

Let’s create a sample Django Form to render it and show as an example. In geeks >, enter following code 


from django import forms
# creating a form
class InputForm(forms.Form):
    first_name = forms.CharField(max_length = 200)
    last_name = forms.CharField(max_length = 200)
    roll_number = forms.IntegerField(
                     help_text = "Enter 6 digit roll number"
    password = forms.CharField(widget = forms.PasswordInput())

Now we need a View to render this form into a template. Let’s create a view, 


from django.shortcuts import render
from .forms import InputForm
# Create your views here.
def home_view(request):
    context ={}
    context['form']= InputForm()
    return render(request, "home.html", context)

Finally, we will create the template where we need the form to be placed. In templates > home.html, 


<form action = "" method = "post">
    {% csrf_token %}
        {{ form.as_table }}
    <input type="submit" value="Submit">

Here {{ form.as_table }} will render them as table cells wrapped in <tr> tags. Let’s check whether this is working accordingly or not.
