SelectDateWidget does not pass through attrs

Reported by: Peter Reeves <oneofthemany1@…> Owned by: alexr
Component: Forms Version: master
Severity: Keywords: SelectDateWidget attrs
Cc: oneofthemany1@… Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: yes Patch needs improvement: yes
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


Using the following code, the output html omits any attributes passed to it.

DataForm.base_fields['dob'].widget = extras.SelectDateWidget(years=range(2007,1899,-1),attrs={'class':'dobclass' })

Below is the output from diff for a patch to django\newforms\extras\

However this does not allow the setting of different attributes per select option.

<         select_html = Select(choices=month_choices).render(self.month_field % name, month_val)
>         select_html = Select(choices=month_choices).render(self.month_field % name, month_val, attrs=self.attrs)
<         select_html = Select(choices=day_choices).render(self.day_field % name, day_val)
>         select_html = Select(choices=day_choices).render(self.day_field % name, day_val, attrs=self.attrs)
<         select_html = Select(choices=year_choices).render(self.year_field % name, year_val)
>         select_html = Select(choices=year_choices).render(self.year_field % name, year_val, attrs=self.attrs)

Looks like a good fix, but it needs unit tests before we can check it in.

The first patch doesn't seem sufficient to meet the requirement that of handling attrs passed to render() should override self.attrs.

For instance, in MultiWidget.render(), each widget component is passed the result of:

final_attrs = self.build_attrs(attrs).

The patch for #6230 addresses this ticket as well, although I won't necessarily call this a duplicate.

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

I can't reproduce this issue. I attached a test that verifies a class attr does show up in the render method. Closing this as worksforme.
