Save Projects Functionality With Streamlit

Hello everyone, I’ve been developing a feature that enables users to save the current state of the app as a project. When starting a new session, the app will automatically refresh with the previous state. This process involves configuring session state keys before initializing the corresponding widgets. As a result, a message related to a field on the UI is displayed.

The widget with key “ref_well_lat_range” was created with a default value but also had its value set via the Session State API.

Any suggestions on how to do this properly or how to hide this message from UI.


Hey @Aman_jain,

Every widget with a key is automatically added to session state, and if you create a widget with both a key and a default value, that default value will be added to session state (st.session_state.ref_well_lat_range in this case). If you are providing both a key and a default value for the widget, you’ll see this error message if you try to then modify the session state value for that key via st.session_state.ref_well_late_range = some_new_value.

To avoid this error, you can either:

  • remove the default value for the widget with key ref_well_lat_range
  • remove the line where you’re modifying the widget’s session state value (i.e. st.session_state.ref_well_late_range = some_new_value)

Hope this helps! This section of the docs covers this concept in more detail.
