#484 closed defect (fixed)

FloatField with decimal_places but not max_digits causes mysql error.

A FloatField that uses decimal_places without max_digits results in using numeric(None, 2). This causes an error in mysql (at least.)

I can see two ways to fix this:

  • Update the docs with this info and/or throw a helpful error message.
  • Set the max_digits to the maximum possible. (255-decimal_places, on mysql at least.)

Note that the same thing also happens when you have max_digits without decimal_places.
