#21201 assigned New feature

Let ClearableFileInput work with other fields

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 Changed 7 months ago by EvilDMP

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 Changed 7 months ago by EvilDMP

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