Part Labels

Part Labels

Part label templates are used to generate labels for individual Part instances.

Creating Part Label Templates

Part label templates are added (and edited) via the admin interface.

Printing Part Labels

Part label can be printed using the following approaches:

To print a single part label from the Part detail view, select the Print Label option.

To print multiple part labels, select multiple parts in the part table and select the Print Labels option.

Context Data

The following context variables are made available to the Part label template:

Variable Description
part The Part object
category The Part Category which contains the Part
name The name of the part
description The description text for the part
IPN Internal part number (IPN) for the part
revision Part revision code
qr_data String data which can be rendered to a QR code
parameters Map (Python dictionary) object containing the parameters associated with the part instance

Parameter Values

The part parameter values can be accessed by parameter name lookup in the template, as follows:

Part: {{ }}
Length: {{ parameters.length }}


Note that for parameters which include a space character in their name, lookup using the "dot" notation won't work! In this case, try using the key lookup method:

Voltage Rating: {% getkey parameters "Voltage Rating" %}

Parameter Data

If you require access to the parameter data itself, and not just the "value" of a particular parameter, you can use the part_parameter helper function.

For example, the following label template can be used to generate a label which contains parameter data in addition to parameter units:

{% extends "label/label_base.html" %}

{% load report %}

{% block content %}

{% part_parameter part "Width" as width %}
{% part_parameter part "Length" as length %}

    Part: {{ part.full_name }}<br>
    Width: {{ }} [{{ width.units }}]<br>
    Length: {{ }} [{{ length.units }}]

{% endblock content %}

The following label is produced:

Label with parameters Label with parameters
