#29247 closed Bug (fixed)

A custom blank value in model field choices doesn't work when using named groups

While sifting through the source code to understand the internals for a package I'm making, I stumbled upon what looked like a bug.

These lines right here:

named_groups = isinstance(choices[0][1], (list, tuple))
blank_defined = not named_groups and any(choice in ('', None) for choice, __ in choices)

And indeed a bug it was.

The problem was that, had you defined your choices first with a group and then later on a choice that defined the blank value, the current implementation would skip right over it! So you would end up with having both the default blank value and the one you've defined, which doesn't look very pretty.

I've created a pull request on github that fixes the issue here.
