Description (last modified by kmtracey)

The following code snippet

from django import forms
from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _

class SearchForm( forms.Form):
    d_o_b = forms.DateField( _( 'Human Readable Name'), required=False, input_formats=('%d-%m-%Y',))

causes django to complain __init__() got multiple values for keyword argument 'input_formats'


    d_o_b = form.DateField( required=False, input_formats=('%d-%m-%Y',))

works fine.

Form fields don't take any non-keyword arguments, and I don't see anywhere in the documentation (e.g. that implies differently. If that _('Human Readable Name') is intended to be the field's label, then it needs to be passed as label=_('Human Readable Name').

My assumption was that they worked similar to model fields. If that is not so.. why does the following code work:

   variable_number = forms.IntegerField( _( 'Human Readable Name'), required = False, label = 'Label Name')

Also, what does the string argument "Human Readable Name" represent in this case?

The purpose of human readable field as taken from
"You can use an optional first positional argument to a Field to designate a human-readable name...and it doubles as documentation"
