Shows field value as plain text which can't be edited by user. Field value (or key value for foreign keys) is stored in hiddden input.

Value of field is stored in hidden input and current value is placed as plain text. User can't change it's value. If field is foreign key then additional attribute 'key' should be set to True (key is stored in hidden field and unicode value is visible): self.fields['my_field'].widget = HiddenInputWithText(attrs={ 'key' : True }) There is one condition: for foreign key field its name have to be same as lowercased model name.

Default 'key' value - False is correct for non-foreign key fields: self.fields['my_field'].widget = HiddenInputWithText()
