Description

The validate() method of a model does not complain when exceeding the maxlength of a CharField.
There should be an error in the returned dictionary (e.g. "Ensure your text is less than 75 characters.")

In the following example someone could add an invalid e-mail-address without getting a validation error:

>>> import django.contrib.auth.models as auth
>>> u = auth.User.objects.get(pk=1)
>>> u.email = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@xx.xx'
>>> u.validate()
{}
>>> u.save()
/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/django/db/backends/mysql/base.py:35: Warning: Rows matched: 1  Changed: 1  Warnings: 1
  return self.cursor.execute(sql, params)
>>> u.validate()
{}
>>> u = auth.User.objects.get(pk=1)
>>> u.email
'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'
>>> u.validate()
{'email': ['Enter a valid e-mail address.']}
>>>

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

validate() isn't meant to be public yet, and it's not finished yet, so I'm closing this.
