#5962 closed Bug (wontfix)

FileField doesn't show existing data on newforms widget

Reported by: garcia_marc Owned by: garcia_marc
Component: Forms Version: master
Severity: Normal Keywords: filefield data link
Cc: marc.garcia@… Triage Stage: Design decision needed
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


If we've a model that contains a FileField (or ImageField), and we use admin with it, in that field's widget is displayed a link to existing data on it.

When using form_for_model (or any method to create a form) for same field, that link isn't displayed. I think that it should.

If that's an issue (what I think) I'll develop patch for it.

I dont think this is an issue but more of an enhancement. newforms-admin just defines its own widget to accomplish this. There is no reason you can do the same.

Ups, I forget about this ticket. Now form_for_field is deprecated, and FileFields are being rewrited, so this ticket is meaningless, and we'll see the final result of everything.
