Mhh, I think that form fields should support this. Let me look at the code briefly. So yes, you need to change it on the widget level; here is what you have to do in your form: class MyForm(Form): def updateWidgets(self): super(MyForm, self).updateWidgets() self.widgets['prefix.myfield'].required = False Is that too difficult still?
