#5471 closed (fixed)

BooleanField fails to work when processing data from as_hidden

Reported by: Paul Lanier <planier@…> Owned by: nobody
Component: Forms Version: master
Severity: Keywords: BooleanField as_hidden
Cc: Triage Stage: Ready for checkin
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


If a BooleanField is referenced in the Template with .as_hidden then the returned value for False is '0'. Since BooleanField does a simple bool() in clean, this is converted to True.

The patch adds an explicit check for '0' and returns false in this case.
