admin interface FloatField validator raise "TypeError" when exceeding decimal_places

Unexpected behaviour in admin interface. If I specify a given number of decimal_places in FloatField:

  ....(snippet from my model)...
  quantita = meta.FloatField("Quantita",max_digits=10,decimal_places=2,core=True)

and I try to insert more figures than 2 after the dot (e.g. "1.2345") , I got a TypeError:

Request Method:  	POST
Request URL:
Exception Type: 	TypeError
Exception Value: 	not all arguments converted during string formatting
Exception Location: 	/usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/django/core/ in __call__, line 354

This happens both for 0.90 and current svn revision.

The validator works correctly if I try to insert something different than a float number (e.g. "a" -> "Please correct the error below."), but fails, raising TypeError, when exceeding decimal_places. Which is definitely unexpected.

Works for me on trunk. Though i only see the validation error message if edit_inline=meta.STACKED

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Marked as worksforme as I'm unable to replicate this in the current svn (4400). I'm guessing that this has been fixed.
