It seems that radio_admin is broken in trunk's admin for adding new items through popup's.

django.contrib.redirects is an easy test case, create a project, put django.contrib.redirects in it and get the error when trying to add a new (with the plus symbol) record to the database and radio selection field.

Error message: (firebug)

SelectBox is not defined
Line 73

After a little inspection of RelatedObjectLookups it seems to me that the entire javascript is not capable of handling radio_fields when adding new objects through the popup. The reason this error get's raised is because the javascript code handles it like it would be a combobox using the SelectBox javascript object instead of as a radio field. (The entire radio-field handling code is 'missing')

Since radio fields are no more in newforms-admin, it IMHO makes the most sense to remove the radio_admin option from the model in django.contrib.redirects (path attached)

Maybe also marking this option as deprecated in the documentation ( might be useful as it would disappear in nfa and seems to be currently broken (for a long time now? as i cannot find any revision that did handle adding items to the radio selection on page) for adding new items by popup in the admin pages.

Radio fields were no more in newform-admin just because they hadn't been implemented, not because they were intended to be removed. They are implemented now and this problem now exists in newforms-admin. While you can use the popup to add an item, the newly-added item doesn't show up in the radio list until you manually refresh the page. I have no idea how to fix this -- javascript is not something I've done much work with. Someone with more knowledge than I in this area needs to decide what to do about it, but at any rate since it was a problem in old admin it shouldn't block merge so marking nfa_someday.

As far as i can see this is not applicable anymore on post-Django 1.0
Recommend closing the ticket. (also added a patch to a new ticket, fixing/adding the dynamic additions of items to a radiolist in the admin: #10191 )

I don't see why a new ticket was needed here -- the identified problem could as easily have been fixed under this ticket as a new one. You could have changed the summary, version, etc. to more accurately describe the current situation, if necessary. But, since you've created a new ticket and put the patch there, we can use that one. (You also could have closed this yourself -- no special privs are needed to close tickets.)
