[patch] PasswordField needs documentation

PasswordField exists in code but doesn't exist in documentation, even search won't find it.
Something to point out that this exists would be good, because it propably is a quite frequently
used field

Probably more useful, but wider in scope, would be documentation of all the field types available in django.forms.

(In [3184]) Fixed #2071 -- documented the PasswordField (including cavaets). Thanks to
asmodai for the initial patch.

Reverted by Adrian in [3189]. I think there's some confusion - this documentation is for django.forms.PasswordField.
Perhaps mixing it in with models-api isn't the best idea, but it still should be documented somewhere.

The patch in #61 provides a new PasswordField field and documentation for it. I'll close this as a duplicate, thanks asmodai for the initial documentation.

Resolution: duplicate
Status: closedreopened

Let's leave this open for the time being. It's not clear at the moment that #61 is totally correct, since it mixes presentation and representation. So this documentation might well still be used when we document form fields. I'll add a note to #61 to point out the connection as well.

(In [4578]) Fixed #2071: added a smidge of docs on PasswordField. Thanks for the patch, asmodai.

comment:10 Changed 16 years ago by Chris Beaven

My bad :( This was reverted in [4579] because there's no such thing as a PasswordField database field type, it's only a form type and they are not documented (well, with newforms they probably will be)
