Re: how to manage range of hours in models and forms in django1.4

I understand that institue_hours_of_operation is a count of the hours the user has worked, is that correct? If so, I suppose you just need to count the hours with each form submition and add that to the current institue_hours_of_operation value. You can do that logic in a few places. In class-based views, I tend to put it in form_valid().
Apologies if I've misunderstood :)

I am developing an event app which has users who publish events , other users also.
Now users have their profile info for which i have made a very common UserProfile Model with all the necessary details in it.

I have a requirement where in UserProfile model i need to display a field institue_hours_of_operation( no. of hours that an institute works)

class UserProfile(models.Model):
    user = models.ForeignKey(User, blank=True, null=True, unique=True)
    first_name = models.CharField(max_length=30, blank=True)
    last_name = models.CharField(max_length=30, blank=True)
    gender = models.CharField(max_length=1, choices=GENDER_CHOICES, blank=True)
    birth_date = models.DateField(auto_now_add=True)
    street_address = models.CharField(max_length=75, blank=True)
    city = models.CharField(max_length=30, blank=True)
    zip_code = models.IntegerField(max_length=7, blank=True, null=True)
    country = models.CharField(max_length=30, blank=True)
    mobile = models.CharField(max_length=15, blank=True)
    home_phone = models.CharField(max_length=15, blank=True)
    primary_email = models.EmailField(max_length=60, blank=True)
    secondary_email = models.EmailField(max_length=60, blank=True)
    institution_name = models.CharField(max_length=100,blank=True,null=True)
    institution_website = models.CharField(max_length=100,blank=True,null=True)

# Field to be added

It will be displayed in html like this

Insitutue hour of operation :       Monday  9.00 - 17.00 (Monday will be hardcoded,Time will be filled by user)
                                              Tuesday 9.00 - 17.00 (Monday will be hardcoded,Time will be filled by user)

                                               and so on

# Note the weekdays like monday,  tuesday they are all hardcoded as requirement but i don't want that to be hardcoded.
Also i am using a django forms  to display this.

How can i design this form field as well in models or What should be the type of this field both in models and forms such that weekdays remain dynamic(i can simply generate them from loop) and the user can fill the time  and when he hits submit it will get saved.

Thanks in advance.
