[Fixed]-Django: Accessing request in forms.py clean function


You can overwrite the FormMixin‘s get_form_kwargs method to add the request for to the form’s init parameters:

class ItemCreate(FormView):
     def get_form_kwargs(self):
         kwargs = super(ItemCreate, self).get_form_kwargs()
             'request' : self.request
         return kwargs


Overriding the form.get_initial() works for me

class ItemCreate(FormView):
    def get_initial(self):
        init = super(ItemCreate, self).get_initial()
        return init

And in the clean we can access it with form.initial dict

class sampleForm(forms.Form):
    def clean(self):
    user_request = self.initial['request']

By the way, we don’t need to pop the extra args like suggested above.
