#4848 new New feature

Allow inline fields to be "mixed in" with the models' own fields

Reported by: leifbyron Owned by: nobody
Component: contrib.admin Version: newforms-admin
Severity: Normal Keywords: nfa-someday newforms-admin inline models fields
Cc: ckesselh, gezuru@…, andreas@… Triage Stage: Accepted

Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


In newforms-admin, it would be quite helpful to be able to specify both a models' fields and its inline models' fields in the fields tuple of the options class. This would allow inline model fields to be "mixed in" with the models' own fields on the model's admin page. There are many situations where this would be preferable to the current situation -- always having inline model fields rendered below the models' own fields.

I suggested this feature in the Django-developers group, and Adrian suggested that I open a ticket.

Yes, I recently stumbled across that missing feature and I agree that it would be highly desirable. --lupo

I'd rather come up with some way of naming each inline and using those names in the fields or fieldsets, but allowing inline forms to be placed in the middle of other form fields would be a great feature.

This can be written backward compatible after the merge of newforms-admin.
