The page suggests twice to use object.dict to provide data for the form,
but you actually should use manipulator.flatten_data or some fields will not
be filled properly (I had this problem with ManyToManyFields and DateTimeFields).

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

Marked as wontfix, as we're moving to the newforms library and the old forms framework is being end-of-lined

Simon, I'd disagree; we're going to have the old forms system for at least one more release, so we need to get the documentation for it right even if we're recommending people use newforms for new projects.
