readonly_fields doesn't work with fields not part of the model

using readonly_fields in the admin works for fields of the model
but when I add a field to the form and try to make it readonly I'm getting an error:
ImproperlyConfigured at /admin/myapp/mymodel/1/ MyModelAdmin.readonly_fields, 'somefield' is not a callable or an attribute of 'MyModelAdmin' or found in the model 'MyModel'.
readonly_fields is useful to show calculated fields.
I'm using it to show the sum of inline cart items.
class MyModelAdminForm(forms.ModelForm): class Meta: model = MyModel somefield = forms.CharField() class MyModelAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin): form = MyModelAdminForm readonly_fields = ('somefield',)
