StringField not available


I imported Form from flask_wtf but I can define the 'username' parameter as a StringField - that type does not exist.

I followed all the steps for this tutorial and everything worked so far. I am working on Pycharm

Please help!

Using WTF Forms usually involves importing the Form and the fields separately:

from flask_wtf import Form
from wtforms import StringField, PasswordField
