Page not loading even after 200 status

I’m trying to redirect to the invoice page but nothing changes except the refresh

this is the

urlpatterns = [
    path('', User_login_view, name='login'),
    path('home/', HomePageView.as_view(), name='home'),
    path("nglm/", NGLMView.as_view() , name="nglm"),
     """ other urls for the sidebar"""
    path("createinvoice/", NGLINVAPI.as_view(), name="createinvoice"),
    path("nglinvoice/", NGLInvoiceTV.as_view(), name="nglinvoice")

After login I go to “nglm” page where I input the customer details and click the submit button which calls the api “createinvoice”. the class is shown below

  def post(self,request):
      if 'nglinv' == request.POST['formtype'] :
          data = {
          p,ccreated = update_customerdb(data=data)
          l = update_gldb(data=data)
          data['cid'] =
          iq,i = update_inventory(data=data,gl=l)
          lici = update_LICI(cid=p,lid=l,data=data)
          ninv = update_invoice(licid=lici,lid=l,cid=p,data=data,il = iq,items = i)
          invid =
          base_url = '/nglinvoice/'
          query_string =  urlencode({'pk':}) 
          url = '{}?{}'.format(base_url, query_string)
          return redirect(url)    
      return HttpResponseRedirect('home')

this should have redirected me to invoice page “nglinvoice”. the view is show below

class NGLInvoiceTV(TemplateView):
  template_name = "pages/nglinvoice.html"
  def get(self, request):
      p = request.GET['pk']
      inv = get_object_or_404(InvoiceModel, pk=p)
      context = {}
      context['segment'] = 'api'
      context['pagename'] = 'New GL API'
      context['object'] = inv
      return render(request,self.template_name , context)

I have no issues up to this point. the problem is it doesn’t show the page “nglinvoice.html”, it just refresh the “nglm” page

below is what the terminal is showing:

if I enter the last url manually, I can see the page but if i click the submit button it just refresh the page

I also tried using detailview, listview, made a different class, function as well, still same results. I can view the page manually but not from the submit button

how can i go to the invoice page after the clicking the submit button

How is your submit button submitting the request? Is it a full page request or an AJAX request?

Yes It is an is ajax call. It calls the API function NGLINVAPI

Your browser isn’t getting the redirect. The JavaScript is getting it in the response it receives.

So then it’s up to your JavaScript to force the redirect, it’ll be up to you to force a new page load.

Sorry for the late response. It seems I can’t redirect from the API view itself. Thank you for the help
