#11908 closed (fixed)

Understanding the ManagementForm section could be clearer.

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: 1.1
Severity: Keywords: ManagementForm

Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no

Description

"You may have noticed the additional data that was required in the formset's data above."
should probably be specific like:
"You may have noticed the additional data (form-TOTAL_FORMS and form-INITIAL_FORMS) that was required in the formset's data above."

It would also be nice if it said something like:
"The easy way to add this data to your form is to include {{formset.management_form}} in your template."
After the:
"If you don't use it, it will result in an exception"
line.

I overlooked that line in the template example, but it took a lot of googling to figure out how to fix it, even though I immediately found the managementform section.
