#16529 closed Bug (duplicate)

ManyToManyField + CheckboxSelectMultiple widget = wrong help message

Reported by: shelldweller Owned by: nobody
Component: Forms Version: 1.3
Severity: Normal Keywords: models, forms
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


In forms:

class MyModelForm(ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = MyModel
        widgets = {
            'my_m2m_field': CheckboxSelectMultiple(),

When rendering it to template help_text for my_m2m_field outputs Hold down "Control", or "Command" on a Mac, to select more than one. which is not applicable when using CheckboxSelectMultiple widget.

There is a bit of conceptual gap here. This message is widget specific, but it's defined in the model field (in django/db/models/fields/ line 1023 for Django 1.3)
