#3593 closed (invalid)

Field default values don't seem to work as expected

Reported by: brosner@… Owned by: adrian
Component: Database layer (models, ORM) Version: master

If I have the given model in an app:

class Products(models.Model):
	name = models.CharField(maxlength=150)
	list_price = models.CharField(max_digits=10, decimal_places=2, default=0.00, blank=True)
	price = models.CharField(max_digits=10, decimal_places=2)
	class Admin:

When adding a new product through the admin site you will get an IntegrityError saying that list_price may not be NULL. I have tested this with MySQL and SQLite and both result in this error. While I could change the value on the fly before saving the object, but the default parameter would seem like it should handle that for me.

That model name should be Product and not Products. ;)

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

In the future please direct such questions to the django-users mailing list. This is NOT the right place for this kind of questions.

Oh and read the documentation. max_digits and decimal_places are no valid options for a CharField
