Description (last modified by Vladyslav Krylasov)

I have a Django model that contains MultiPolygonField, so wanted to render it through the admin dashboard as an inline field.

class Geometry(models.Model):
  zone = models.ForeignKey(to=Zone, on_delete=models.CASCADE)
  mpoly = models.MultiPolygonField(null=True, blank=True)

class GeometryInline(admin.TabularInline):
  model = Geometry
  max_num = 1

class ZoneAdmin(admin.GeoModelAdmin):
  model = Zone
  inlines = (GeometryInline,)

This renders such result:

But when I make django.contrib.gis.admin.GeoModelAdmin as a mixin it works just fine.

from django.contrib.gis import admin
from django.contrib.gis.admin.widgets import OpenLayersWidget
from django.contrib.gis.db import models
from django.contrib.gis.gdal import OGRGeomType
from django.forms import Media

class GeoAdminMixin:
    Copied over from django.contrib.gis.admin.GeoModelAdmin

    The administration options class for Geographic models. Map settings
    may be overloaded from their defaults to create custom maps.

    # The default map settings that may be overloaded -- still subject
    # to API changes.

        Overloaded from ModelAdmin so that an OpenLayersWidget is used
        for viewing/editing 2D GeometryFields (OpenLayers 2 does not support
        3D editing).
        if isinstance(db_field, models.GeometryField) and db_field.dim < 3:
            # Setting the widget with the newly defined widget.
            kwargs['widget'] = self.get_map_widget(db_field)

        return OLMap

  class GeometryInline(GeoAdminMixin, admin.TabularInline):
    model = Geometry
    max_num = 1


Am I missing something or Django needs a mixin for this situation?

Have you tried to use ModelAdmin instead of GeoModelAdmin? It seems to be a duplicate of #16417.

Moreover, we're going to deprecate GeoModelAdmin and OSMGeoAdmin (probably in Django 4.0), see #27674.
