I have a charfield with the following:
myString = models.CharField(max_length=50,null=True,blank=True)
In many of my objects, this particular string is often left blank, when created through the django admin interface. In MySQL, the column is VARCHAR(50) with default=NULL.
Whatever test I try to do in my views.py to detect blank values, always seems to evaluate to false whether the entry is blank or not:
myString is None
How can I discriminate between blank and non-blank values for this field?
Actual view is the following, I want to execute a block only if this field is not blank.
the block always executes, and I have tried all the above examples of testing for a blank field.
does indeed work.
