ClearableFileInput is very useful widget, problem is that it can only be used with FileField as it only expects FieldFile as an initial value.

I propose a decomposition (see patch) which allows easy modification to use this widget with other fields.

Example: File input is used over data which are stored in database.

This problem is remotely connected with #15667 which may (or may not) solve this issue.

Replying to EvilDMP:
Do you have in mind any particular changes in documentation beside note in changelog? Current documentation does not describe these internals of the widget.

comment:4 by Daniele Procida, 11 years ago

docs/forms/ref/widgets.txt documents ClearableFileInput, but not the internals; I don't see any particular need to document internals of widgets. Perhaps an example of usage would be helpful.

comment:5 by Daniele Procida, 11 years ago

This patch does change the behaviour of the widget, so we will need to understand any backwards-compatibility implications of it.
