Django form - set label

I have a form that inherits from 2 other forms. In my form, I want to change the label of a field that was defined in one of the parent forms. Does anyone know how this can be done?

I'm trying to do it in my

__init__
, but it throws an error saying that "'RegistrationFormTOS' object has no attribute 'email'". Does anyone know how I can do this?

Thanks.

Here is my form code:

from django import forms
from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _
from registration.forms import RegistrationFormUniqueEmail
from registration.forms import RegistrationFormTermsOfService

attrs_dict = { 'class': 'required' }

class RegistrationFormTOS(RegistrationFormUniqueEmail, RegistrationFormTermsOfService):
"""
Subclass of ``RegistrationForm`` which adds a required checkbox
for agreeing to a site's Terms of Service.

"""
email2 = forms.EmailField(widget=forms.TextInput(attrs=dict(attrs_dict, maxlength=75)), label=_(u'verify email address'))

def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
self.email.label = "New Email Label"
super(RegistrationFormTOS, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)

def clean_email2(self):
"""
Verifiy that the values entered into the two email fields
match.
"""
if 'email' in self.cleaned_data and 'email2' in self.cleaned_data:
if self.cleaned_data['email'] != self.cleaned_data['email2']:
raise forms.ValidationError(_(u'You must type the same email each time'))
return self.cleaned_data

Answer

You should use:

def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
    super(RegistrationFormTOS, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
    self.fields['email'].label = "New Email Label"

Note first you should use the super call.
