Template filter to mark-up individual form fields.

Usage :

In template - {% load form_custom %}

then for a form field - {{ form.field|form_row:"default" }} for default wrapper

or - {{ form.field|form_row:"lbl_cls=some_class_name&reqd=no" }} to pass option args seperated by &

Optional args are :- wrapper_cls - override default field wrapper div class name error_cls - override default field error div class name lbl_cls - override default label_tag div class name label - yes/no default is yes - output label_tag reqd - yes/no default is yes - marks up required fields as bold with label ending with *

See code for all default args.
