Description (last modified by )
If I have a FloatField with a particular precision, and I submit a form that has higher precision than I specified when creating the model, it will fail silently. When I say fail silently, and error is raised but no description is passed out of the validator. An example model :
meta.FloatField('latitude', max_digits=10, decimal_places=7, default=0.0), meta.FloatField('longitude', max_digits=10, decimal_places=7, default=0.0),
And then if I have an input that is either more than 10 digits or 7 decimal places, it will fail.
I'm not sure where I could insert any rounding off near the validation model. I was thinking of doing it similar to a typecast as in date/time strings.
