- newforms forms field modelform
- 6 (after 6 ratings)
I will change a model form widget attribute without define the complete field. Because many "meta" information are defined in the model (e.g. the help_text) and i don't want to repeat this.
I found a solution: Add/change the widget attribute in the init, see example code.

from django import forms from django.contrib.auth.models import User class UserForm(forms.ModelForm): def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs): super(UserForm, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs) # change a widget attribute: self.fields['user_permissions'].widget.attrs["size"] = 5 class Meta: model = User
