#691 closed defect (duplicate)

Model allowed me to 'hide' a required field, which produced unuseable error messages.

Description

I had a data model which had a required field 'text'. When I was ordering the fields using the following syntax:

admin = meta.Admin(

# Add this to order the fields and even group them!
fields = (

(None, {'fields': ('title', 'published_date')} ),
("Categories", {'fields': ('categories',)} ),

)

)

I forgot to put in the 'text' field. Which meant that when I was adding a new item, it would complain that I should fix the 'error' below, but there was no error listed below, because the text field was never shown. The validate command should catch this maybe? But at the very least, if error messages aren't shown during the display of the form, they should be shown in a final list at the end. Or something.
