I have a Django form with a RegexField, which is very similar to a normal text input field.
In my view, under certain conditions I want to hide it from the user, and trying to keep the form as similar as possible. What's the best way to turn this field into a HiddenInput field?
I know I can set attributes on the field with:
form['fieldname'].field.widget.attr['readonly'] = 'readonly'
And I can set the desired initial value with:
form.initial['fieldname'] = 'mydesiredvalue'
However, that won't change the form of the widget.
What's the best / most "django-y" / least way to make this field a <input type="hidden"> field?
