- newforms field init
- 2 (after 2 ratings)
When adding fields in the init of a newform, and you don't want the fields to be added after the class-attribute fields, this is a possibility... This is a bad example as the email_from could just as well have been defined as a class variable!

class ContactForm(forms.Form): to = forms.EmailField() message = forms.CharField(widget=forms.Textarea()) def __init__(self, user, *args, **kwargs): super(ContactForm, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs) # user isn't logged in, so ask him for an email from_field = forms.EmailField() if not user.is_anonymous(): from_field.widget = forms.HiddenInput from_field.initial = user.email # insert the field at the start of the fields new_fields = self.fields.items() new_fields.insert(0, ('from', from_field)) self.fields = SortedDictFromList(new_fields)
