Display a red asterisk (*) in Django forms


I want to change in my form the color of the label_suffix.

I just want to set the '*' in red and leave the rest black. Is this possible or do i have to change something in my HTML?

username = forms.CharField(label="Username",label_suffix='*')


Get rid of this - label_suffix='*'. We'll write some CSS to display a * after the required fields.

First, in your form set an attribute called <a href="https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/2.1/ref/forms/api/#django.forms.Form.required_css_class" rel="nofollow">required_css_class</a>:

class MyForm(...): required_css_class = 'required'

Django will set a class called required in the HTML label and input for the field.

Now, put these lines your css file to display a red asterisk:

label.required::after { content: ' *'; color: red; }
