While working on #16257 I've noticed some problems with the ModelAdmin.get_list_display() method that was introduced in r16340:

  • There is an inconsistency with list_display. If you set list_display to ('bacon', 'cheese',) then get_list_display() will return ('action_checkbox', 'bacon', 'cheese',).
  • The presence (or absence) of the action checkbox should be dictated solely by the presence (or absence) of ModelAdmin.actions, not by what is returned by get_list_display().

The attached patch rectifies this behavior by injecting 'action_checkbox' further downstream after 'get_list_display()' is called. This would be a minor backwards-incompatibility for those who have been using the still-unreleased 'get_list_display()' method.

In [17035]:

Fixed #17090 -- Made the API specification for ModelAdmin.get_list_display() more consistent with that of ModelAdmin.list_display by separating out the admin action check boxes business. This is backwards-incompatible for those who have been using the still-unreleased get_list_display() method. Thanks to Ramiro Morales for the review.
