from mptt_autocomplete.widgets import FancyTreeWidget

categories = Category.objects.order_by('tree_id', 'lft')

class CategoryForm(forms.Form):
categories = forms.ModelChoiceField(

In this example Category is a model registered with django-mptt.

Widget accepts **queryset** option, which expects pre-ordered queryset by
"tree_id" and "lft".

If you want to adjust tree data creation, you can define 'get_doc' method on
your model. Example:


def get_doc(self, values):
doc = {"title": name, "key":}
if str( in values:
doc['select'] = True
doc['expand'] = True
return doc
