#21854 closed Bug (invalid)

CharField has default value of u''

Reported by: burhan.khalid@… Owned by: nobody
Component: Database layer (models, ORM) Version: 1.6

Description

>>> import django
>>> django.VERSION
(1, 6, 1, 'final', 0)
>>> from myfirstapp.models import Product
>>> p = Product()
>>> p
<Product: Product object>
>>> p.save()
>>> p.name
u''

Django should not save the object because the model definition is:

class Product(models.Model):
	name = models.CharField('product name', max_length=64)
	url = models.URLField('product page', blank=True)
	category = models.CharField(max_length=64, blank=True)
	description = models.TextField('product description', blank=True)

I am using 2.7.6

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

Saving the model does not validate it. If you wish to check, you should call clean() on the instance. If the object is created via a form, this will happen. This is not likely to change.

The question is not about validation, its about setting a default value when no default value was specified in the model definition.
